What to Look For on a Couple's Wedding Website

So, you completed the wedding search and found a couple's wedding website. Now what? Their wedding website will be a helpful resource to use in the weeks leading up the celebration. Here's what to look for on their custom wedding page.

Their Wedding Registry

While giving a wedding gift isn't required, it's highly encouraged. If you're not sure what to buy, it's always best to shop directly from the couple's wedding registry first. Most to-be-weds will include their registry information on their wedding website, but you can also use the process outlined above to find their gift wishlist. If they don't have a registry set up and you need to buy a present, shop our roundup of the best wedding gifts for great ideas that'll wow.

RSVP Information

Sending in your RSVP in a timely manner is the most important thing to do as a wedding guest (besides showing up on the big day). The couple will need a definitive headcount to share with their venue and team of talented wedding pros, so submit your RSVP as soon as possible. Formal invites are typically sent out six to eight weeks before the wedding date, so aim to RSVP three to four weeks prior. (The earlier you send in your response, the better.)

Mail-in RSVP cards are still common, but some couples are opting for digital correspondence. The Knot offers RSVP functionality through wedding websites, and this might be their preferred means of receiving your response. If so, you'll be able to RSVP directly through their wedding website. Both their site and formal invitations will have directions on how to respond, so keep an eye out for instructions.

Wedding Details

Before you text or call the couple to ask about details like the date, time, location or wedding dress code, check their wedding website first. There's a good chance that all of your logistical questions will be answered on their wedding website, making it a valuable resource to search. If your question isn't answered on their site, try asking members of the wedding party or other guests you know will be attending before going to the couple directly.

Lodging and Travel Accommodations

Depending on the location of the nuptials, the couple may arrange travel and lodging accommodations. This will be helpful information for you, especially if you'll be traveling from out of town. If the couple reserved room blocks at nearby hotels, you might be able to book a discounted stay or coordinate travel with other guests. You'll also need to know if they'll be providing transportation to and from the ceremony and reception, which will help you plan travel logistics for the wedding day (or the entire weekend). Search for this information on the wedding website before making your own transportation arrangements to simplify your prewedding to-do list.

Local Activities

Some to-be-weds customize their wedding website even further with local activities and sightseeing recommendations. If they've taken the time to personalize their wedding website, take full advantage of their creativity. These recs will be especially helpful if you'll be traveling from out of town or if there's downtime in between wedding activities. Browse through any additional pages on the couple's wedding website too, because you never know what hidden information or surprises you'll find.

What to Look For on a Couple's Wedding Registry

Now that you've successfully found a couple's wedding registry, it's time to actually look through their wishlist. Here's everything you need to search for on someone's wedding registry.

Wishlist Price Options

Often, after answering the question "How do I find someone's wedding registry?" the next query you're faced with is "How much should I spend on a wedding gift?" Thankfully, The Knot has a wedding gift calculator that can answer that very question for you. Couples will register for gifts at a variety of price points, so don't stress if some of the items feel out of your budget. The to-be-weds hand-selected each item on their registry, so pick the one that fits your wallet and they'll certainly appreciate it.

Retailer Options

With a registry on The Knot, some items added to a to-be-wed's wishlist may come from The Knot Registry Store. For those products, you can complete the purchase directly on TheKnot.com. However, many couples have more than one registry. For example, if the couple also has a registry on Amazon or Target, those products will show up in their registry on The Knot, but purchasing and fulfillment will happen through the retailer with whom they have the additional registry. For gifts like that, you will be taken to the website of the external registry when you click on the item. You'll purchase the gift through the external retailer.

Completed Gifts

When a gift has been purchased by another wedding guest, it will have a green "Purchased" label on it so you know that wedding gift was fulfilled. Since The Knot Registry integrates with most external registries, even the purchase of products through a partner registry, like Target or Amazon, will display as completed in a couple's registry on The Knot. However, for some smaller retailers that aren't integrated with The Knot, you will see a note that says "Come back to the couple's registry on The Knot to tell us if you've bought the gift" when you click on their registry item.

Pay Attention to Virtual Gifts

Many modern couples are choosing to registry for experiences (like a cooking class), cash funds (like a home-buying fund) or even charity donations. Take some time to search through a couple's wedding registry to see all the options available to you before you select a gift to give.
