New York natives Fionna and Michael always knew they wanted to host a destination wedding to celebrate their nuptials. When it came to selecting a venue, Fionna says The Breakers was the easiest of all wedding planning decisions to make.

“I have no words for just how amazing our wedding weekend turned out to be,” Fionna shares. “While I knew The Breakers grandeur and ambience would make for a spectacular event, Mike and I were most drawn to the outside ocean setting. We wanted to host a night to remember for our families and guests, but also wanted to feel grounded in each other at the same time.”

Whether you’re planning an intimate wedding or a large affair, keeping all your wedding guests informed of the big day’s details is important — especially when you’re hosting a destination wedding. The solution: A beautifully designed wedding website!

Wedding Website 101: Build an amazing wedding website

{Clockwise from left – Design templates from Appy Couple, The Knot & Wedding Woo}

Not tech savvy? Don’t fret. With an array of tools available, you can design your wedding website with ease. In fact, there are only three main steps: 1) BUILD – choose a design template, 2) CUSTOMIZE – upload all your content and 3) SHARE – publish your link and send away.

With so many wedding website production sites to choose from, it’s best to approach your selection with a few key elements in mind…

1) BUILD – Look and feel: Do the design templates speak to you? Can you customize the layout and features to fit your wedding theme and style as a couple? Will the design translate well to your Save-the-Dates and invitations?

2) CUSTOMIZE – Functionality and options: Is the site easy to navigate? Ability for your guests to RSVP online? Is there a spot for you to explain all of your events and include travel details? Is it mobile friendly? (Play around with a few demos!)

3) SHARE – Personalize your URL: What are the options for customizing your website’s URL? Can you upgrade to a personal vanity link?

Ready to get started? Take a peek at a few recommendations from past Breakers’ brides and grooms:

  • Appy Couple – Create a wedding website and dedicated app with over 500 stylish designs
  • The Knot - Easy setup, personalized URL and more than 80 beautiful designs
  • Wedding Woo – Build a personable and visual wedding website without templates
  • Wedding Window - Create your own wedding website with matching eCards
  • My Wedding – Personalized wedding websites with matching invitations
  • Wedding Wire – More than 400 designs sorted by color, style and invitation design

From an Escort Card Display to a Whimsical Photo Booth Backdrop, we just had to share the story of Brittany and John’s Book Wall…

Real Wedding: Brittany & John at The Breakers Palm Beach

“Timeless, fairy tale elements were a huge part of our wedding planning,” Brittany shares. “My bridal shower was fairy tale themed and it definitely factored into the decor elements on our wedding day: bagpipers outside the church, vintage clocks and books on the lounge tables in the reception, custom bookmark place cards, and of course, our beautiful fairy tale book wall that later became a backdrop for the photo booth!”

The Making of the Book Wall…

When Brittany first met with Event Design Manager Aime Dunstan in the Design Studio, the fellow bookworms knew the Book Wall would be an extra special treat to greet guests during the cocktail reception in the Mediterranean Ballroom.

More than 100 hardback books were hand-selected and placed into the custom display.

“I scoured thrift stores and vintage book dealers for months to build this collection of well-worn tomes,” Aime shares. “Shape, size, color and patina were of particular importance, as the books were attached in a puzzle-like fashion to completely blanket an 8’x8′ wall we constructed in our studio.”

Our team’s favorite part? The scent!

“To an avid reader, there is no more peaceful and inspiring fragrance than old books,” says Aime. “Accents of fresh garden roses, curly willow, hydrangea and hanging green amaranthus only added to the experience.”

The Conclusion…

After cocktail hour, our production team discreetly relocated the installation to the Venetian Ballroom, where guests could pose in front of the storybook backdrop for photo booth fun.
