20 wedding website examples for inspiration
When you’re planning a wedding, you want to get caught up in the details of your nuptials, not in building the website (see best wedding website builders). The good news is that it’s easy to build a website in a matter of hours.
Many of the sample wedding websites below are based on Wix wedding website templates, but each one looks unique and polished. Let’s discuss the features and design choices each couple took to help you create a wedding website of your own.
01. Abby & Will
With the soft-toned engagement photos, earthy color palette and calligraphic typography, this wedding website example exudes a sense of warmth and calm. The one-page website layout is easy to explore, and the call-to-action (CTA) buttons clearly indicate to visitors what to do next.
02. Alex & Bailey
This is a great example of a wedding website that primarily uses visuals to communicate. The beautiful engagement photography serves as the basis for a lot of the imagery, but wedding guests will also find relationship-timeline photos, headshots of the wedding party and descriptive icons throughout the site. The couple also takes advantage of special features—like parallax scrolling, image hover effects and slide-in text animations—to give their site extra personality.
03. Andrew & Amanda
With a brutalist website design and a groovy aesthetic, you won’t find another wedding website that looks like this one. We love the animation effects on the vector graphics and the retro typography treatments.
Check out the creative navigation setup for this one-page website. While the header bar is static (i.e., it disappears from view when you scroll down), a button-like anchor menu sticks to the right side of the page. This choice reduces the clutter so that the couple has plenty of space for maximalist design choices.
The slogan “Keep Austin Weird” that appears at the top of the “Things to Do” section just about sums up the theme of this website. With baby cupid graphics, a Glen Campbell cutout and a variety of funky fonts, the site suggests that this wedding will be one to remember.
Aesthetics aside, this site is really well-structured. If you’re looking for a way to share a lot of details without overwhelming your guest, model your layout after this one.
This one-page wedding website is really well-composed. For starters, the sticky navigation on the left makes it easy for guests to find whatever they’re looking for while giving each page an attractive, asymmetrical dynamic.
Every style choice this couple made beautifully complements the dreamy, cinematic feel of their engagement photos. They used Cormorant Garamond, a delicate, refined serif font that is subtly glamorous. To create the text strip backgrounds, they mounted an ivory, oblong shape on a pine-green strip. That soft pop of color pairs beautifully with the photography.
06. Charlotte & Will
This elegant-looking website design fits well with the yacht-club setting of this wedding. Every detail of the site has been perfectly crafted to fit this sophisticated style. For instance, the floral monogram logo matches the flowery touches throughout the design. Also, the blue accent color isn’t just built into the page design; the couple also wears the color in their engagement photos.
07. Will & Kaitlin
If you’re looking for a good example of how to design a wedding website without photos or videos, check this one out. The only image is a picture of the hotel where they have room blocks. Otherwise, the background is filled with floral patterns and dusty colors.
Will and Kate’s website is also a good example to follow if you just want to create a short site in lieu of a save-the-date. All you need is a single-page website like this one and a clean, well-organized layout that breaks down key details about when and where the wedding is, the day’s schedule, travel information and registry links.
08. Chaslyn & Kevin
This couple has skillfully incorporated videos to establish the ambiance for their wedding, achieving a delightful blend of sophistication, flirtiness and joy. Separating the video frames with barebones strips creates a beautifully stark contrast and gives the eye a place to rest.
The photo gallery page is designed with equal consideration. Visitors can either scroll through the grid or click on a photo to open the photo slider, which allows viewers to savor each image individually at their own pace.
This couple has a real knack for website design. They’ve effortlessly balanced aesthetics and usability, making the site a breeze to explore. Click the hamburger icon for a good example of this: doing so opens a gorgeous pop-up menu that not only features the section links but also a landscape photo and the wedding’s key details.
The site is overflowing with other thoughtful details. We love the countdown clock and the fact that the RSVP page features a list of the attending guests.
10. Denise & Chuck
This website serves as an excellent demonstration of utilizing a theme to craft design elements. The gold-and-black color scheme and the sun-kissed photo filters seamlessly align with the desert motif, resulting in a cohesive and visually appealing design.
The website's text exhibits a delightful and personable tone. One notable instance on the home page involves the couple playfully describing the wedding party as “some of the most dangerous, unpredictable, and downright insane characters you'll ever meet.”
11. Emily & Ari
Here’s another website that uses a specific locale to serve as the theme for the design. In this case, it’s a small town in Colorado that looks like something out of an old western film.
The headline font has just as big and airy of a personality as the locale does. The earth tones color palette and ample white space additionally play nicely into this theme.
12. Jared & Hallee
The design of this wedding site exudes a wholesome charm. Considering these lovebirds are high school sweethearts, the design is a nice homage to their love’s innocent beginnings.
Jared and Hallee dubbed their site the “Ney Love Club,” which is a cute touch. The bottom section of the site incorporates unique and thoughtful elements, such as a live chat bubble and a “Shuttle RSVP” button in the footer. The latter choice is particularly special, since it demonstrates a dedication to their guests’ convenience and comfort.
This website is a nice example of how to show your creative side while still creating a website that is easy for your guests to use. To start, the couple displays their clever hashtag (#JOYfulMATTtrimony) in the header so guests remember to use it when posting pictures on social media. Furthermore, they share a video of the proposal on the “Our Story” page to make guests feel included in their story.
You can find another sweet touch on the “Wedding Party” page: When you hover over a photo, a blurb about the party member appears, allowing guests to get to know those who will be playing a large role in the festivities. The slideshow of their junior party also helps to increase the aww-factor of the site.
14. Kiki & Sam
In many of these wedding website examples, we see a lot of themes based on location or personality. This wedding, however, revolves around the holiday, Dia de Los Muertos.
The couple has set the mood for what’s to come at this themed wedding with rich color palettes. Solid black backgrounds provide the perfect backdrop for vibrant illustrations, holiday imagery and text. Lighter strips provide the perfect space for lengthier sections of text.
Guests are invited to get in on all the themed fun. The “Wedding” page invites them to dress up according to the theme and provides them with helpful tips for doing so.
15. Mark & Jacob
Once your wedding is over, you have a couple of choices. One option is to delete the website if you have nothing further to announce; another is to hold onto the website and use it as a digital photo album of the festivities.
That’s what Mark and Jacob have done with their wedding website. It’s covered with beautiful photography and videography from the wedding. Relevant details about the couple’s relationship remain as well to provide context for the stunning and joyful imagery.
16. Marysa & Zachary
The design of this site is gorgeous. The dark design ensures that every detail stands out beautifully against the backdrop. Oversized white lettering, gold texturizing illustrations and black-and-white photos of the couple contribute to the memorable design.
The site’s forms are also noteworthy. For instance, there’s an RSVP form that collects relevant details about guests and their dietary preferences. The couple even added some personality to the form with custom “Yes! Can’t wait to party!” and “No. Partying in spirit” options. There’s also a separate form for music requests so that the couple have plenty of ideas for their DJ.
17. Nick & Lindsey
Spend some time looking around this site and you’ll notice what care the couple took in putting it together. The header is a prime example of this. Rather than try to fit as much info into a small handful of pages, Nick and Lindsey created a page for each topic, including accommodations, the registry and an FAQ. They even included a login button at the top so that people with access to the site (like the webmaster or guest party) have a convenient way to log in.
18. Ronnie & Ashley
This wedding website is downright beautiful. It’s minimal in design and full of class. Some of the sections have a textured background resembling the paper that of a printed invitation. In addition, there are background videos in some sections that look as though a tree branch is slowly swaying in the wind.
19. Sulay & Anne
If writing isn’t your forté, take a look at this wedding website example. The couple stuck to the need-to-know details and let their stunning photos and design speak for themselves. We love that this site has plenty of white space and that the fonts and graphics match the muted coloring of the photography. Sulay and Anne even went as far as to remove the backgrounds from the outfit inspiration images to maintain the clean look. If you like this choice, try out Wix’s cut-out tool, which makes it easy to remove the background from images.
20. Theresa & Jeremy
This website has a very modern-feeling design. For starters, they made a stunning logo with a thin-line drawing of rolling hills to use as their homepage button. Moreover, we love that the color palette of creamy peach, muted blue and warm brown pairs beautifully with the beach engagement photos. Another thing to take notice of is the cutout shapes used across the site. It’s like the couple is giving us a peek inside their world with these creative shapes and portholes.
