Let’s face it, you’ll do just about anything to make planning a wedding during COVID even a little bit easier. Especially if your wedding date feels like a moving target right now. How about not sending out “save the date” after “re-save the date” after “okay really, save this date” and instead rely on the greatest wedding planning tool you have in your arsenal — a wedding website!
We’ve talked about wedding websites plenty in the past, but in 2020 it is by far more helpful than ever before. And if you’re not sure where to begin, Joy is The Place. Joy is rolling with the ebbs and flows of 2020, just like you, and creating helpful features to help you navigate COVID-times with as much ease as possible. Let’s just dive into a few of those features, shall we?
Creating a Wedding Website with Joy
The first thing to know about Joy is that it is 100% free for couples and gives you a platform to plan everything about your wedding is one place. Choose from hundreds of website designs that you can customize to fit your style + personality. You’ll have access to unlimited digital save-the-dates and wedding invitations for free as well as a guest-list manager. It’s easy to set up unique privacy settings and customize RSVP experiences — your people stay organized without any need for spreadsheets or otherwise.
COVID Features for Your Wedding Website
Aside from all the generally helpful and amazing features, Joy stepped it up with everything you need to keep your guests informed — and yourself sane — during COVID. First up, there’s the COVID Wedding Calculator, a very helpful resource to help you make informed decisions when it comes to making changes to your day.
Second, there are announcement banners. These are the easiest way to quickly update guests who visit your website with the latest news and changes.
Next, if you need to let guests know about a new wedding date, Joy’s Change the Dates help you do just that. Online change the dates are the simplest way to keep guests in-the-know and Joy offers unlimited e-cards for free.
The next big trend for COVID weddings is definitely a reluctant one, but it’s been a gracious answer to the predicament of gathering people — the virtual wedding. Joy has created a way to live stream your wedding directly through your Joy wedding website and mobile app so that loved ones celebrate virtually! This is incredibly easy for your guests. All they have to do visit your wedding website at the time of your wedding to tune in. And after the wedding is over, you can upload the recording of your live stream directly to your wedding website for any who may have missed it.
There is even more from Joy, like a live photo album that guests can contribute to from their virtual seats as well as a wedding planning community Facebook group to ask questions + share advice with other couples. Finally, Joy’s COVID-19 Wedding Planning Resource Center is there for everything you need to know as you plan a day that’s special, no matter when or where it happens.
Start building your free wedding website and get access to all these features — and a whole lot more.
