Add an Announcement Banner to Your Website and Mobile App

If your wedding plans change, whether out of necessity or by choice, you’ll want to make sure your guests are aware of any updates. Catch their attention immediately by adding an Announcement Banner to the top of your wedding website and mobile app.

An announcement banner will be the first thing guests see when they visit your wedding website, and should be used to convey the most important wedding updates that you want to ensure your guests don’t miss. We heard from many of you whose wedding plans have been impacted by COVID-19 that a banner feature would be useful to alert your guests, and we hope this helps you quickly and easily share your changing plans.

Beyond the current COVID-19 crisis, an announcement banner can be used to share any type of pressing wedding update, such as an RSVP deadline reminder, a change in dress code, a live stream link, a shuttle time change, or any special message to your guests.

Learn how to set up an Announcement Banner in the steps below.

Head to your admin dashboard and navigate to ‘Settings.’

Click on the ‘General’ tab, and you will see the option to enable a banner across the top of your wedding website. To activate the banner,  toggle the feature “on,” (to the right, so that the toggle turns purple). Then, edit the headline and the message to suit your needs:

The banner will appear on the top of your website and mobile app for your guests:

Can I add links to my banner?

Yes, you can add links to websites and email addresses directly to your banner message. Enter the link into your message while editing the banner, and you’ll see them appear as clickable links in the message:


Once you’ve finished making your changes, hit save on the top of the page, and you’re all set!
