Creating a Wedding Website.

For the longest time, I didn't do this.
I didn't really see the point, and didn't want to waste my time.
Who's going to look at it anyway?

Here's what happened to change my mind.

1: Every wedding invitation I've gotten this year has had a wedding website attached. 
Clearly, I must be missing something...

2: Did you know you can customize the site to be all about you & your fiance??
Can we say, DUH?  But really, I didn't realize the extent you could do this.

3: Information!! Do I really want to have to include every last little detail with the invitations??
No.  And that's where the websites come in!


I tried for probably weeks to create a wedding website with theknot.com.  I love theknot for a lot of reasons, but their website navigability is not exactly one of those reasons.   A lot of their pages take ages to load and when I continually attempted to use their template for making my site, it would fail to load and not work at all.  Luckily, a friend of mine is getting married shortly and I took the cue from her to go to mywedding.com  Their site is much, much easier to work with, and I absolutely love the site I came up with.

Bottom line:
If you don't feel your guests will benefit from a website, don't worry about it. If you don't have time, don't sweat it.  But if you want a way to easily communicate with guests, including having someplace they can see accommodations (especially for out of town guests!), I definitely suggest doing the website!

You can view my site here.


What do you think of wedding websites?  Did you use one?
