The best part about working at Joy is getting to virtually meet the thousands of couples who use Joy to create their wedding website and app. We designed Joy to be able to reflect the different personalities of every couple, and we are always working to make it easier to personalize your wedding website — adding new layouts, themes, color schemes, and more. But even we are constantly amazed at just how creative couples get using Joy. If a picture is really worth 1,000 words, then we have read novels about the couples using Joy to plan their weddings. And we’re suckers for good love stories.
Here’re some examples of Joy wedding website that will get your creative juices flowing.
Preview the Adventure
Since they are having their wedding in Bend, Oregon, Hayli and Andrew are clearly going to have a beautiful wedding. They use their Joy wedding website to not only get guests excited about the gorgeous scenery, but they use their timeline to let guests know that it’s going to be an adventure as well. When the recommended attire for your first pre-wedding activity is a bathing suit for a tubing adventure through the canyons, you’re pretty much guaranteed to have a truly epic event.
Show off your artistic side
If you’re feeling particularly artistic, you can opt to have illustrations decorating the pages of your wedding site. Artist Rafael Salazar created these illustrations to celebrate his marriage to his fiance Teresa. They also included illustrations of the best man, maid of honor, and the whole crew on the wedding party page! The classic layout and minimalist black-and-white theme help make the illustrations the star of the show.
Show off your bling
The minute you announce your engagement your friends and family will start asking to see the ring. Why not please the masses with a gorgeous close-up of the engagement ring as the cover photo to your wedding website like Deborah and Ryan did? Bonus: you never have to worry about accidently showing off chipped nail polish.
Capture the proposal
If you were as well-prepared as Veronique and Jonathan and managed to capture pictures of the actual engagement, we can’t think of a better image to use on the cover of your wedding website. Call us hopeless romantics, but certain members of the Joy team teared up a little when we saw the emotion captured in this proposal pic.
Share a meaningful quote
When you create a Joy wedding website, we provide you with sample copy for your landing page to welcome your guests and get them excited about the wedding. But don’t feel limited by our suggestion – this is the perfect opportunity to get creative and express your personality. You can share a personalized message for your guests or share a favorite song quote like Adam and Vivian did. They borrowed lyrics from Ben Folds’ “The Luckiest” so everybody knows how they feel about each other. (Bonus points for having spectacular taste in music!)
Get creative with your story
This couple chose a classic layout that conveys simplicity and elegance. Joy provides lots of options when it comes to the visual theme of your site, and Cassandra and Greg found a floral design that complements their photos perfectly. It’s also a great backdrop for presenting their story. They use humor to make it fun and set the tone they want for their wedding.
Provide the perfect frame for your photos
For their site, Devin and Jeff use color to complement their timeless black and white photos. The visual accents and the simple yet elegant font choice make for a feel that’s understated but oh-so-romantic.
Double as a Save the Date
You don’t have to know every detail about your upcoming wedding to start your website. In fact, if you’re planning an event that will require guests to travel or make special arrangements, you can double your wedding website as a virtual save-the-date like Jenniffer and Veronica did. This way you can add details as you get them and your guests start getting excited about the big day as soon as you know the big date.
Share your passions
If you and your future spouse have a particular passion that defines your relationship, share it with the world (and your wedding guests and future in-laws) on your wedding website. Bonus points if that passion involves costumes and a memorable portrait, like Josie and Jeffry. These two Dr. Who fanatics aren’t just using their Joy wedding website to share a particularly fabulous photo opp, but they are also setting the tone for their big day. And clearly, their wedding is going to be a lot of fun.
