Editing Your Event Details

Customize your date, URL, names, etc.

Updated over a week ago

Remember that thrilling moment when you embarked on this website journey? We had your back from the start, ensuring you had your event date and locked in and added to that glorious Welcome page. But you know what they say about life – it's got a mind of its own and it like a scenic detour now and then. Plans might decide to dance to their own beat, and guess what? That's absolutely okay. The cherry on top? You're the captain of this ship, and you can tweak things as you fancy.

To get started, head on over to your Settings Page. Just click that hamburger icon in the upper right corner of the admin dashboard, then the "Event Settings." You'll find yourself on the General Tab, which shows all of your basic wedding deets.

This is where you can edit:

  • Your Joy URL (aka event handle) - It's the final touch of the website's URL and makes your URL unique. AmyPlusDave is the event handle for the URL withjoy.com/amyplusdave.

    • Let your imagination run wild here. Imagine you're Jim and Pam. How about JimPlusPam, JimAndPam, or JAndP?

    • No "&" allowed in URLs, but feel free to toss in words like "hitched," "getready," or "savethedate."

    • Once someone claims a URL, it's off-limits – so channel that inner artist!

  • Names - Keep it simple – your first names are the stars of the show, dazzling on the Welcome Page and in those delightful emails through Joy.

  • Date - Getting the show on the road needs a date, but if plans shuffle, you can adjust it later.

  • Location - It's time to tell the world where the party's at – city, state, country – all eyes on your spot!

  • Announcement - Got something big to say? This is your megaphone moment. Guests get a peek at your announcement right when they hit your site.

  • Countdown - The default is a 4 pm countdown on your big day. But hey, mix things up and set the clock for any event on your schedule page

  • App Visibility - You're the boss here – decide if you want to show off app details on the site. And oh, pick an app photo that guests see when they swing by your site on the app.

You're in charge of the show, and you're doing great!
