It used to be that designing your wedding invitation was really the only piece of communication you needed to throw a wedding and let your guests know all of the important wedding details. Boy, have times changed!
These days, nearly every wedding also has an accompanying wedding website to go along with it. Typically, wedding websites include information about the couple, photographs, details of the wedding weekend, any accommodation details, and wedding registry info — so it’s super important. Oh, and it also can be super pretty, chic, elegant, minimal, or however else you choose to design it.
Thanks to Minted’s wedding website design options, you can create a custom wedding website that are also styled to match your wedding invitation and stationary suite for a gorgeous, cohesive look all around. Minted offers FREE basic designs with optional premium features ($15) so you can make the wedding website of your dreams, for the wedding of your dreams.
First Things First
When designing your website, you’ll want to select a design that goes beautifully with your wedding invitation suite, and is unique to your vibe and personal style. So, it’s a great idea to have your wedding color scheme and your paper suite selected when you make your website. Think of it as an opportunity to check off a bunch of boxes on your wedding to-do list!
To make it easy, each of Minted’s wedding website designs have matching invitations, save the dates, and even décor, so you can maintain a beautiful and cohesive look throughout your stationary, website, and on your big day!
Layout and Background
There are many layouts to choose from, so it’s a good idea to select which photos you’d like to feature on your site, and then opt for a design that will allow you to feature them. What do you want your website visitor to see first? A photo? A monogram? A quote?

Do you want a solid background, a print, or simple black and white?
Where is your wedding? For a destination wedding, check out beachy-background designs like Gilded Palm. Or for more of a mountain theme, the settings in Forest Air or in Scene are gorgeous options.
Is your event casual, or black tie? For a black-tie event, we love the bow-tie art featured in the Beau Tied suite, or the elegantly bold black and white theme found in Curvilinear.
And, if you love color or florals, there are so many other options (no really, over 1,000!) with gorgeous artwork that add beautiful color and an elevated feel.
Throughout your wedding website there are many opportunities to add personal touches. Your wedding website is a great place to showcase not only your engagement photos, but also photos of you and your partner as your relationship has grown and evolved. (Who doesn’t love a throwback?)
We also love the idea of creating a custom monogram for your wedding. But no need to hire a digital designer or calligrapher, with just a few clicks you can make a gorgeous one for FREE with Minted’s free monogram maker.
Use your wedding website as an opportunity to not only inform your guests of all the need-to-know information, but also to share special stories and memories. Many couples opt to also introduce and share a little bit about their wedding party, too!
