Creating a Wedding Website

As New York City’s premiere wedding registry destination, the seasoned staff at Scully & Scully know a thing or two about weddings.  When it comes to the details, it is our pleasure to guide both brides and grooms every step along the way.

Leading up to our September 28, 2013 Wedding Registry Event at Scully & Scully, we will be sharing some useful tips for your wedding preparation.

The very first step is to get organized!  Once a date and location are set, it is time to share the details with friends and family.  In an age where computers and smartphones are essential communication tools, creating your own personal wedding website is a must.  It’s an easy way to share details and keep guests up-to-date.  And, it is a convenient way to share your wedding registry information.

Brides often ask:

“When should I register?”

“How do I notify friends and family of where I am registered?”

On timing, we advise creating the wedding registry by the time ‘Save the Date’ invitations are sent.  As your first official announcement, friends and family will be eager to start planning gifts for upcoming engagement parties, wedding showers, and the wedding itself.  Including a link to your wedding website is a polite way to share wedding registry details.   Guests can easily access your registry on-line, shop at their leisure, and seek guidance from our wedding staff for any questions.

At Scully & Scully, brides appreciate the convenience and support of both our on-line store and in-store sales staff.  By linking us to your website, you can be assured such service will extend to your guest list.

Here are a few of the favorites as recommended by Scully & Scully brides.  Have fun and be creative!
