If there’s one question we get asked about Glö more than anything else, it’s, “How is this different from a regular wedding website?” The answer? A lot of ways that make wedding planning a hell of a lot easier.
1. You aren’t locked into ugly templates: Free wedding websites have the benefit of being free, but the buck usually stops there. With Glö, you have the option of choosing from their huge selection of pre-designed templates (some are even designed by APW sponsors, so hot stuff). Or, if nothing you see suits your fancy, you can upload a custom design yourself, and you don’t need to know how to code or do HTML in your head.
2.Glö is actually way more than just a wedding website. It’s like a command center for your wedding. With Glö you get an all-in-one guest management tool and communication solution. Which means you can send out invitations, take in RSVPs, customize your multi-page website with all the specifics of your wedding, and stay in touch with your guests leading up to the event. And unlike other wedding websites that offer RSVP tools, Glö allows you to customize your RSVPs so that you can separate the wedding guests from the people invited to the rehearsal dinner from the folks coming to your brunch on Sunday. And your guests will only see the events they’ve been invited to, so nobody has to get their feelings hurt.
It’s not just a digital tool. Glö was created to make your life easier, which means a little something for everyone: digital invitations and RSVPs for those of you looking to save money on paper and do a little good for the environment. And matching paper invitations for those who want the look and feel of traditional paper invitations, or whose aunties might have a cow if they don’t get one in the mail. Want to do both digital and printed invitations, depending on your guest type? You can totally do that with Glö.
Last year, we spent almost all of our time on behind-the-scenes infrastructure improvements to support how fast we were growing. The past few months have been ALL about implementing Glöbie requested features and enhancements. We’ve made it easier for guests coming to your site from a paper invitation to RSVP to the wedding by allowing them to log in with an email address OR by searching for their name.
We’ve also added a ton of new design options—like page link orientation and background colors, over 150 new fonts, transparent backgrounds, and more. As a result—Glöbies are having even more fun with their site designs than ever! Our partner designer (and APW sponsor) e.m. papers has also added three brand new designs to Glö!
Glö has three subscription levels (but you can get started with a free 21-day trial), with packages varying by how many guests are coming to your wedding, and whether or not you’ll be sending out email invitations. Their monthly subscriptions start at just $19.99 per month (which you can do for as little as one month), or you can get a full year’s worth of Glö awesomeness for just $75. That’s less than the price of postage alone for most weddings.
So how is Glö different from other wedding websites? They’re the whole package. Glö is more than a wedding website; it’s a total guest organization and guest list management solution that helps you seamlessly invite, inform, and interact with your guests in a stress-free and beautiful way. They are the only place where you’ll find email invitations, multi-page wedsites, totally customizable RSVPs, and guest messaging tools all in one place. Plus, as an added bonus, you get a bona fide APWer from way back running the show. Which means that if you do have more questions about what Glö does and why it’s awesome, one of your people will be there to help you, no questions asked.
