Create Your Own Mailing List Service

I’ve often referenced personal wedding websites as a great tool for getting information out to your guests. It centralizes all your information in one universally accessible place, and is a great alternative to expensive, bulky mailed invitation enclosures.

Another invaluable tool for keeping guests current on important updates or wedding-related news–such as a last-minute scheduling change–is an email mailing list service.

Such a service lets your guests sign themselves up to receive important updates by email. It should provide a mechanism for guests to unsubscribe if they like, and an interface where you can easily post your updates and notices.

It makes sense for both your mailing list and wedding website to function together, centralizing all the information as well as the mailing list tools. You can request guests to sign up for your mailing list, with a link to the sign-up form, on your website’s home page.

WedShare’s pre-designed News and Updates page makes it easy to create and maintain your own mailing list service. You easily post important updates to this page with the same full-featured¬†interface you use to create page content, and each entry will be automatically sent to your registered mailing list. Plus, you can designate any notice as a home page alert; such alerts will pop up on your website home page to get the attention of guests who may not have added themselves to your list yet.

Setup options for your own mailing list service via the WedShare control panel. Also available is a link to view and manage all recipients in your current list
