Building a wedding site

A beautiful wedding site shares your occasion with family and friends, acting as an announcement, invitation, RSVP, and more. In this guide, we'll cover selecting the right design to celebrate your special day and specific Squarespace features to show off photos, create an easy RSVP form, and share your story with your guests.

Start with a wedding design

While all Squarespace sites have the built-in design tools to make a beautiful, unique wedding site, you may want to start with a design from the Weddings category of the template store. These wedding-centered designs highlight your story and help your guests find important details.

To get started, visit the template store and select Weddings in the menu on the left. This filters the designs to only show wedding-focused templates. Click Preview on any design, or click Start With to create a new site using that design. 

To learn more, visit Choosing the right template.

Own your name

All Squarespace sites on an annual billing plan receive a free domain for the first year. Using a memorable name, such as the two of your names, your wedding hashtag, or a fun inside joke, helps guests remember your URL, making it easy to pull up your wedding site at any time on a mobile device to check directions, show off a photo, or find links to your registry.

For more information, visit Squarespace domains.

Create an RSVP form

Streamline the RSVP process with a customizable Form Block. By connecting your RSVP form to storage options—an email address, Google Sheet, or Mailchimp list—you can keep your guest list organized and stay in touch about any adjustments to the big day's schedule.

Show your photos

Banner or background images

You can use engagement photos and snapshots of cherished memories as banner or background images. This puts the happy couple front and center, making a strong visual impression. To learn more, visit Adding banner images.

Gallery sections

Display sets of images with gallery sections, perfect for showing the history of your relationship or memories from the wedding after the fact. To learn more, visit Gallery sections in version 7.1.

Stock images

You can create a beautiful site without hiring a professional photographer using Squarespace's stock image integrations. Choose a free or premium image to fill your banners or gallery sections and capture the right mood for your wedding day.

Display event details

A wedding site serves as an accessible reminder for locations, schedules, and other essential details for guests. A Map Block helps guests locate your venue, while Text Blocks with formatted headings make it easy to spot crucial information in a schedule, even when glancing at a mobile display. Finally, the Menu Block displays menus and lists ingredients, helping accommodate guests with food preferences, allergies, or dietary restrictions.

Add registries

Zola

Use the Zola Block to display a selection of items from your Zola wedding registry in a design that blends in with the page. This is a great way for visitors to browse your wish list without leaving your wedding site.

Link to multiple registeries

By using Image Blocks and clickthrough URLs, you can create thumbnail images that link out to multiple registries, as shown below.

Cash registries and gifts

If you have a cash registry or honeyfund, you can receive contributions through your site with Donation Blocks.

Next steps

Your wedding site will be as unique as you are as a couple, so this is just the beginning. You can use text and images to tell how you met or add a Video Block to share the proposal. To learn more about Squarespace and start designing your site, we recommend our Getting Started video series.

After the event

You can keep your wedding site after the wedding is over to serve a new purpose. Share memories from the day with gallery sections, add a video of the ceremony, and leave registries up to assist tardy gift givers.

If you're taking a honeymoon, you can document your trip with a blog. Before and after the wedding, your site will connect to you to guests who couldn't make it, store photos in a single location, and keep better than a piece of cake in the freezer.
