How do I add / embed a map into my wedding website?

Created on

While we currently don't have a map tool added into the many features of our Free Wedding Websites, a great work around is to embed a Google Map into one of your existing pages. 

For example, I have my guests staying at the Magnolia Hotel in Downtown Denver, but I am hosting the wedding day events at the Denver Art Museum. I can embed a Google Map  with the direct route drawn out, making it easy for my guests to find their way from one place to the other. 

First, go to Google Maps (www.maps.google.com) and select "Get Directions". Enter the address of the starting and ending destinations. Once you have the directions, select the "link" icon:

Then, copy the HTML code:

Once the code is copied, head back to your wedding website and paste the code into a large text box, which can be done on *most* pages.

Go ahead and view the page, the Google Map should now be embedded into the page:

That's it! Use this great work around to add a map / directions to your wedding website for your guests.
