We had a website but I didn’t do any of the “our story” kind of stuff, I don’t really think it’s required.

@brooklyn_bee:  I just wrote up a blurb about how we met/our first date, then our engagement story. That was pretty much it!

We did one on Wedding Wire. The Our Story thing was just a super simple how we met sort of thing. It was sort of a funny story and did happen 7 years ago so not everyone really knows/remembers it.

I had found another website from a couple that got married at my venue.  So I copied a lot of their attractions, transport etc.  I kept everything super simple, no mushy essay about how we met and I didn’t have a wedding party bio page or anything like that.

We didn’t do anything like that.  Our site has directions, hotel info, registry, stuff like that.

I used AppyCouple.  There is a short Our Story section.  I stuck up 4 pictures and captioned them and that’s it.  No sappy stories for us 🙂

@brooklyn_bee:  I feel the same, I feel like I do not want to go into all the details about me and my FI, my family and friends already know us lol I am just going to write how we met and how long we have been together, the rest I am like this is so easy and fun LOL

@brooklyn_bee:  you don’t have to write a story if you don’t want to.  Just put the pertinent details to the DW.

I created one. Other than a pictures section there is no personal details on there. Its simply a one-stop shop for all relevant information guests may want to access.

We don’t have a cutesy How We Met story, so we’ll either write about our first date, the proposal, or nothing. 😛

Honestly? I don’t think anyone other than maybe your mom will read that section in full anyway. But I so feel your pain! I’m currently creating our website as well, and I just keep putting it off… The About section was fairly easy for me – it consists of a whopping 4 (four) sentences, the last one of which is “And we’ve been together ever since”, but all the other info parts is where I blank!

I didn’t do any of that “our story” etc., and I never read it on anyone else’s site either. Don’t waste your time- if your guests are coming to your destination wedding, they should already know these things.
