How to Start your own Wedding Blog – It's Simple
Let's say you're getting married, but you aren't exactly in the position to be calling everyone non-stop to update them on the wedding. Meeting up in person may not work either because you may have family or friends that live far away. The best way by far to update family and friends on your wedding is to create a wedding blog. It's easy and efficient – all you have to do to update someone on your wedding is send them your link!
If you're planning on creating your own wedding blog, then read on!
Creating a wedding blog is a fantastic idea for anyone getting married. It's also very easy to get started and to update it. You can start by finding a website that hosts blogs for free – they're everywhere. I would suggest Blogger or Tumblr. These websites are free, which means you won't get your own unique domain name. If you want, you can buy your own unique domain name from any provider and build your blog from the ground up (although this is significantly more complicated). Need inspiration?

Once you have your basic blog up, the next best thing would be to find a theme somewhere. The blog site you register on will likely have themes on it. It's totally up to you how you theme your blog, although I would suggest something actually wedding-related. If your host doesn't have any themes, there are tons of places on the internet you can find them – just run a search.
Now you can make your
first update! If you're making your wedding blog to keep your family and
friends updated on your upcoming wedding, you should send out emails, text
messages, phone calls, etc. to them so they'll always be able to read your
updates. The best blogs put out consistent, interesting content, so
instead of updating your blog ten times a day on how you can't decide between
red napkins or slightly lighter-red napkins, space them out a bit. You can
always put more than one major point in each update. Some people will post about their favorite Wedding DJ or photographer or cakery. Feel free to explore.
Put a nice personal touch or two on there. A picture of you and your fiancé works wonders – or better yet – put a slideshow on there. Maybe put up a message board or establish some way readers can communicate with you. Just remember to write with sincerity without being too serious, weddings are very important but you have to remember not to get obsessive.
Over all, just remember to have fun with it. That point is key. Many people will get carried away or stress way too hard about it. Just relax and update your blog whenever there's a new update to your wedding and you have time. Wedding blogs are fantastic for updating people on your wedding. If someone wants to be “in the loop” on your upcoming wedding, just shoot your blog's URL over to him/her.
Now that you've read this article, you should have an easy time setting up your blog, giving it a unique look suited to your tastes, updating it with interesting content, and keeping people in the loop. Have a great time blogging for your wedding!
