Contact Person

For those who created wedding sites, who did you put down as a point of contact if you didn't want people to call or text all the time? Or if you are still being the points of contact, did you create a new email or what? I'm trying to update our site and put a person to contact just in case people had more questions, but don't know whether to put a phone number or just make an entirely new email address.

    Don't offer your phone number if you don't want to be contacted via call/text *at all*. People generally respect your time and will shoot a text, not expecting a response until you are able to on your time. You can create a new email. Wix for example allows you to have a custom domain email. Typically the bride is the contact person since no one else can adequately answer questions that are raised.

    I made my site through Wix. I attached my email to our contact box. I think my number is attached in the mobile view of our website but literally no one has used it. Maybe you can also had a FAQ page on your site as well if you want to keep contact to a minimum.

    Our site was through the Knot, and we didn't have any point/person of contact listed. If people had questions, they contacted either us or our parents directly. We got maybe 3 questions in total.

    I created an entirely new google account for my wedding. So my fiance and I have a specific gmail address for any communications related to the wedding (from guests, vendors, other wedding related websites, etc.), and we use the account to create and save documents in Google Drive. It came in so handy when completing documents that we both needed to view and update and we didn't have to worry about getting confused with multiple versions being sent back and forth between us (i.e., creating our guest list, adding addresses, etc.). It's been great to have one central location for emails and documents related to our wedding.

    I put my MOH as our point of contact but I also made a wedding specific email for reasons like this.

    We don't have a point of contact on our website. I feel like our guest can reach out to us directly or my parents if they have any questions/concerns. I highly doubt they will though

    My wedding website actually already had a section where people could leave a message and it would go right to my email.

    I made my site through Zola and there's no option for that as far as I can tell. I wanted to make a central point in contact for people.

    I wish I would have dome more research on this because Zola doesn't have this at the moment so I'm trying to figure out what's the best way to link contact info without directly putting it on the site.

    I've been tempted to create a new Google account for us, it is a bit much for us to receive emails & info separately then we forward the needed things to each other.

    I would just leave an email just in case you do get a lot of calls or maybe if your MOH or parents are ok with providing their number, maybe one of them can help you with that.

    I have seen people make emails specifically for the wedding or there are apps like google voice numbers where you can use that are free that're new numbers that people can text to if you don't want them directly calling/texting your own personal number

    I'm also thinking of an email, not all that comfortable with leaving a phone number. I'd do my MOH, but she just had her baby yesterday & I don't need to stress her anymore lol

    I was highly considering creating a wedding specific email just so both of us can be coordinated with everything.

    It is definitely too much. That’s why I set up the Google account. And all I had to do was check it and let my fiancé know when there was something I needed him to read or review. It worked like a charm!

    We didn't have a point of contact. Anyone invited to the wedding was close enough to have one of our phone numbers (or our parents). Honestly, we didn't get that many questions, and the ones we got were mostly older relatives or family friends asking where the registry or hotel information was (because they never went to the website in the 1st place). Therefore, a point or contact would have been entirely moot anyway.

    While we did create a wedding email (HIGHLY RECOMMEND), we did not put any points of contact on the website.

    Like Hannah, no one who didn't have a direct line to ourselves or our parents was invited, so we didn't deem it relevant.

    ...The only questions we got were "can I have a plus one???" ...which were my least favorite question at $150/person.
