How do I make sure event times show in the timezone of the destination?

Make it simple for out of town guests and for cases where you may have a destination wedding. We recommend setting your event timezone, so no matter which guest in which country is viewing your events they see it in the local time at the destination.

To change or add your event timezone, simply:

How do I change the weather degree from Celsius to Fahrenheit? 

  • The weather widget automatically converts to the degree standard of the location you choose. For example, in the United States, the weather widget will be displayed in fahrenheit.
  • At this time it is not possible to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit. If you would like to display the weather in a different way, we recommend using a "notes" widget as a play to copy and paste a weather.com link.
