Our objective was to create a website that local vendors can use to advertise their services in order to connect with brides and grooms who are planning their wedding. This would result in a one stop shop for their wedding planning and needs.
Project Solution/Key Features
Clean elegant website that is responsive throughout all mobile devices.
This website hosted an online directory that accepts subscription payments from local vendors that would assist the website owners to generate revenue to maintain this website’s overhead.
Features an integrated newsletter form (that connects to MailChimp) for site updates.
Allows the ability for a bride-to-be to create their own wedding invitation page. This section has several designs to choose from to fit all styles.
Has a blog that the staff manages that delivers information and fun ideas for their clients and viewers.
Integrated SMO to easily stay in touch with their client base.
Due to the capabilities of WordPress, staff can manage the blog without having to learn code.
After the site was live, we relied on user feedback from social media and email campaigns for additional changes.
Database Creation & Management
Design and Integration to WordPress
Documented wireframes for layouts and navigation systems.
Studies and Wireframes
To better understand this project we placed ourselves in the shoes of our client’s audience. We conducted a virtual user group to associate needs vs wants in an effort to aim for a great online user experience.
We worked in conjunction with the MTE team for specs, design feedback, and direction on the project’s goals.
Wedding page form
Brides can have their own personal wedding page to let their guests know about their upcoming event.
They simply fill out the form choosing one of 3 layouts for their wedding page.
Each page features: a custom page url name, gallery, RSVP, registry info, venue info, accommodations and directions.
A calendar is featured on the website with a fully customized front end allowing administrators to update events without having to learn code.
Calendar also lists upcoming events on the front page of the website.
Paid Directory Listing
In order to generate revenue, we decided to go with a commercial directory. The directory is custom designed to fit the needs of CR Wedding. Functionality includes: Registration & login, dashboard, maps and a user review section.
