Set Your Wedding Countdown

The Wedding Countdown is almost as important as your cover photo or guest greeting and can be a fun visualization for both you and your guests. You can find it by scrolling down the welcome page on your mobile app, or underneath the location and date on the right-hand pane of your website.

The date and time to which it counts down is determined by one of two different sections.

When you first create your website, you will asked to provide at least a tentative date, which can be updated anytime by going to your the Welcome” section from your admin dashboard.


However a wedding is not necessarily a simple affair and the events could start long before the actual ceremony. That’s why we’ve also incorporated a feature in your Schedule of Events that allows you to adjust the timer.

When editing and finalizing your schedule, you’ll notice at the bottom of each section a checkbox next to “Use this event for my wedding countdown.” Clicking this will set your countdown relative to that specific event. So for example, if your wedding ceremony is on Saturday at 4:00 pm, but you’re having all of your guests arrive for dinner at 6:00 pm the night before, you would want your timer to be based off of the dinner rather than the ceremony.

To do this, navigate to your Dashboard and click on the “Schedule” icon.

When hovering your cursor over an event in your schedule, you’ll notice a pencil icon and an “x” appear to the right of each event. Click the pencil icon.

Finally, scroll to the bottom of the event page where you’ll find the checkbox. Once checked, hit save and changes will automatically be reflected in your countdown on both your website and app.

Note: Whenever you make adjustments, make sure that all of your dates are updated and match. The timer will modify based on the most recent change. So if you update the date in your Couple Profile but not your Schedule, it will adjust to the profile and vice versa.

    It would also be nice to customize the countdown so that you can add or subtract significant figures. For example, I may only want the number of days remaining, not all the way down to the number of seconds.

      Hi Katie. This is a great suggestion. We don’t currently support that, but it’s good to know what our users are looking for as far as customization goes. Thanks so much for reaching out!
