We're big believers in wedding stationery being cohesive from the mail out of Save the Dates to the Thank You notes sent after your big day, and that's why we're excited to announce that we've been working with WedSites to create a platform that will work seamlessly with the majority of the suites we create!
With customisable calligraphy, lots of options as to how you edit your page to keep it seamless and a back-end that will make you wonder how planning your wedding could become so easy, WedSites has been the dream partner to work with!
Features & Benefits -
COHESIVE SUITE | The big PLUS with working with Wedsites for us is the ability to customise Headings. We've worked closely with Wedsites so that you can have a cohesive suite across your paper stationery and website.
COST | WedSite websites cost between AUD$25 to $80 depending on the tools you require and whether you want paper stationery to go alongside it. We highly recommend the entry level website with the toolkit ($30) if you just need a website and not any digital mail.
Please note that currently the online stationery is not customisable - and the default digital calligraphy on it does not match that of The Blackline Bottega.
SERVICE | Ayla is the Queen of Service! If you have a question, I've not doubt her team will be on to it! And there is a little digi-helper that will keep you going and point out anything you may have missed on your website.
FLEXIBILITY | The templates have loads of features and are easy to use - you can opt between single page scrolling (as per my example) or multi page layout, you can change the language on your forms, get printable reports, digitally highlight information in the back end, or click 'Simplified Design Layout' if the template you have has illustrations / flourishes you don't want. But the site also has Custom CSS for developers so if you require something extra, that can also be done with a developer!
IT PLANS FOR YOU | WedSites is more than a website builder. It's an all inclusive wedding planner. It has the ability to request guests' addresses ahead of any mail out and link them to subsequent RSVP's, dietary requirements - and in turn pop the guests on a seating plan. It takes all the frustration out of building a website, and comes along as a sidekick to assist in all the frustrating duties that are part of planning a wedding.
How To Work With The Blackline Bottega on Your Website -
