It’s no surprise that the popularity of wedding websites has skyrocketed, and here at APHQ, we couldn't think of a better way to create a memorable experience for your guests - from the minute they receive their save-the-date or wedding invitation - than to create your custom wedding website, directly in Aisle Planner.  

Your wedding website is your very own corner of the internet to share all of the wedding details, room block information, travel tips & sights to see – to build a fun filled (and more organized!) wedding weekend. 

How to Create a Wedding or Event Website

To create a wedding or event website, start by clicking into the project (wedding, event, or other) that you’d like to create a website for. Then, click on the Website tab on your Wedding or Project Dashboard.

After that, customizing your wedding or event website is easy! 

All you (or your clients) need to do is fill in or upload a:

  • Headline
  • URL
  • Cover image
  • “Our Story”
  • “The Engagement”
  • “The Wedding Day”

Feel free to skip any of the last three sections noted above - we won't show any of the sections where you haven't added information. However, we recommend that you include at least some information in one of these home page sections, so your home page includes a welcome message to greet your guests visiting your website!

Publishing Your Website

Once you are ready to publish the website, simply click the checkbox next to Publish Website and it will go live!

Adding Pages To Your Website

Our Wedding and Event websites come with the ability to add Events, Travel, Photo Gallery and Registry pages. 

These pages are completely optional, and any pages that aren't populated won't appear on your published website once you set it live.  

Events
The Events page is the perfect place to list all of your events, along with additional information for each, including date, time and location. To add an event, simply click the  “+” beneath the Events Page section.
After clicking “+,” a modal will open where you can enter the information and details.

Travel Info
The Travel Info page is a great place to share everything and anything travel related for your guests - your out of town guests will especially appreciate having a cheat sheet to make their trip to your wedding even more amazing.  Feel free to get creative!  

To add an event, simply click the  “+” beneath the Travel Info section.
After clicking “+,” a modal will open where you can enter the information and details.

Here's some ideas:

  • Recommended hotels
  • Hotel room block or group travel discount code information
  • Things to do 
  • Places to eat

Photo Gallery
The Photo Gallery is a great place to upload images. To upload your images, just click on the gold Add Images button, then select your images to upload. Once your images have been uploaded, you can always click the gold Reorder Images button, then drag and drop images into the order you'd like them to appear.  When you're done, click Done.

Gift Registries
Make it easy for your guests to find where you've registered for gifts and share them on your wedding website. You can list ALL of your registries here, just be sure to include:

  • The Registry Name 
  • Registry URL - include your custom URL if your gift registry has provided one, to make it easy for guests to find your registry
  • Description - while this description is completely optional, it may be helpful to include additional information for your guests, such as where they can shop your registry "online and in-store" or how they can find your registry, which can be especially helpful if the gift registry didn't provide a custom / specific URL for your online registry - for example, "You'll find our registry listed under Bethany James and Will Forde, August 20, 2020"

Important Things to Know About Wedding Websites

  1.  If you create an Event Website under a project that is not a wedding, any reference to “weddings” has been removed.
  2. The image file you upload for the cover image will be automatically placed/cropped to the center. If you want to control which part of the image appears, we recommend cropping the image prior to uploading it. The ratio you should use is 4:1.
  3. Whenever you upload a valid address on the Events or Travel page, a “Map It” button will automatically appear.
  4. When you are ready to unpublish your wedding or event website, simply uncheck the checkbox next to Publish Website.
  5. When sharing your URL (especially on printed save the dates and invitations) be sure to triple check that the URL is correct, since certain portions of your URL cannot be changed. Also note that your wedding website URL is not case sensitive.
