Introduce some very important people on your wedding website by highlighting your wedding party. Keep reading for wedding website bio examples and ideas!
Since building wedding websites have become almost a requirement for most couples, we thought we’d put together a series of posts to answer the frequently asked questions around wedding websites. Have a burning question about building your own wedding website? Make sure to leave us a comment so we can try to address it!
For the first post, we’re focusing on wedding biography examples! Many hosts choose to use the wedding website to highlight their wedding party. Since the wedding party is a big part of the day, this is a fun way to introduce them to the rest of your guests.
Do I need to include bios on my wedding website?
As with any part of the wedding website, wedding bios are totally optional! Many wedding websites offer this as part of their templates or building blocks, but if you’re not interested in including this part, you can totally skip it.
There are a few reasons couples include bios on their wedding website. It is a great way to make your wedding party feel extra special and loved, for one! And it is a great way to create conversation starters between your guests and familiarize them with your party.
Who To Include?
Consider going beyond the bridesmaids and groomsmen and highlighting additional VIP wedding guests on your wedding website:
- Parents of the couple
- Honorary Pet
- Flower Girl
- Ring Bearer
Wedding Website Headers and Page Title Ideas
First, let’s talk about the title! You’ll need to select a page title, and you may opt to separately label the bridesmaids and groomsmen (or not!). We hate to sound like a broken record, but the choice is yours! Wedding websites are new territory, so there aren’t too many rules here! Here are some title ideas to get you started:
- Meet The Wedding Party
- Our I-Do Crew
- The Ladies / The Gents
- Bridesmaids / Groomsmen
Some Do’s & Don’ts
Ok, so we said there aren’t many rules, but lets talk about some.. guidelines! Here’s some things to keep in mind when it comes to creating your wedding party bios page:
- DO keep the bios short and sweet. No need for a full biography here.
- DON’T include anything embarrassing to the members of the party.
- DO run the bio and any photos by the party members before posting online.
- DON’T include any super personal information about your party.
How To Write Wedding Party Bios
The bios can be written in first or third person. We’d recommend using the same format you select here for other pages, such as your “about us” page, to keep things consistent. As a starting point, you can jot down some notes on each of the party members. Think about how you met, your memories together, their best qualities, etc!
Come up with a basic format that you want to use for each of the bios. Again this helps keep it consistent and will make it all around easier to write. For example, you might begin each bio with how you met, and end with a fun fact!
