A modern wedding website { R i l e y & G r e y }

My latest project this week has been trying to decide on what wedding website template to use.  Forget the plugin templates of the past { You know the ones } the waterccolor flower background in 2 color options { pink or yellow } or the dreaded seashell theme as the only option for a destination wedding. Today, there are so many amazing and new options on the scene to help create and design a site just to your liking.  These new beautifully curated websites show off your own personal wedding style while keeping it incredibly user friendly.

My favorite and go-to site at the moment is

This modern and uber luxe company believes that creating a wedding website shouldn’t be complicated.  They customize to create a personal style that is unique to Y O U not just your wedding aesthetic.  They have teamed up with some of the best web designers and developers out there to create templates like I have never seen.  Navigating a site should be fun and simple and filled with beautiful images.  { I have to admit I scroll through images and ignore text most of the time when I blog}.

They even have a R.S.V.P widget that allows your guests say Y E S right away.  This also helps save you on paper and post when sending out your formal invitations.  Have everyone go to your website and respectively accept or decline the new tech savvy way.

 With a moto like this how can you not love them already!!! Go check out Riley & Grey and see all the amazing designs they have to offer. 

I understand most websites you find out there will give you a domain for free and have no fee’s when purchasing your site.  There are lots of great free options from WordPress, Wix, The Knot, Paperless Post and more.  I’ll post more on these options later.

Have fun creating your own website and seeing your wedding become live and interactive for all to see!

Enjoy Today! xo
