@amandamichael:  the pictures under ‘our wedding party’ are distorted. Your poor matron of honor’s face is completely stretched out! 🙁

There’s nothing under where you’re registered?

Other than that, I like it a lot!!!

@amandamichael:  I like the colors & fonts you chose. 

– Are you aware that it still says “Custom page” on the top? I’d change that…

– Maybe with the link send a “heads up, there is music on the page” for people who might open it at work? 

– I usually prefer having the same fonts / same size  on the different pages (at the moment “Welcome” is for example different than “The proposal”); but that’s up to you.

– Welcome-page: Not sure how important of a role the kids play, but maybe you want to add “Natalie, Haley and Isaac are excited for their parents to get married”? 

-Proposal-page: You have a heart at the bottom, spelled this way <3; I’d probably lose it because I’d think my grandma wouldn’t know what it is. 

-Wedding party page: Like a pp said, the pictures are not the right hight-width- ratio; maybe you need to crop them out in advance to avoid this; and just out of curiosity: why do your children have different last names? (I don’t mean this in any rude way & I am totaly okay if you’re telling me that’s none of my business)

– Guest activities: If possible I might add one or two sentences at the top, something like “We want you to have a great time. Here are some suggestions about what to do. The kids love the zoo…”

-Photo Album: At the moment on the 2nd picture all the heads of your kids are cut off in the little preview; I’d rather cut off part of the legs so that their faces are visible

– Contact us: I find that a little odd to have this sort of submission thing; As a guest I’d rather find an e-mail-adress or a phone number there; if you don’t want to add these, that’s fine, but then maybe add a sentence like “Feel free to get in touch with us the way you usually do, if there are any questions also feel free to use this form”.; 

– I like your idea to add a page about “How we met”, but I’d say only do it if you have time for it; with the proposal-page people already learn a nice detail about your life

@amandamichael:  I’m new to this so I apologize if this is a dumb question but why is your bridal shower after your wedding? isn’t is supposed to be before..?

@amandamichael:  Aw, that is such a heartwarming story how the two of you met. Really enjoyed reading it. 

About the photo-album-page, when I click on that, it shows me a preview / thumbnail (little squares) of 5 pictures. If I click on one of them they open in a new window in full size. The preview for the 2nd picture (you and eric in the front; kids in the back) only shows the kids up to their neck (once you open it full size everyone is visible)

-> maybe it doesn’t do that in different browesers (I am using google Chrome)

-> or maybe I am too sensitive about things like these due to work… but if it were my page, I’d resize / crop the picture so that your kids are visible in the preview as well. On Facebook it’s really easy to move pictures around in the thumbnail-box to show the right part of the picture; not sure if weddingwire allows you to do so as well (If not I’d make the picture more square-ish by cropping of part of the feet/legs, than also more of the kids would fit into the preview box)

The version of your page on my screen has the Bridal Shower in March and the Reception / Ceremony in May. I think it’s nice to have the Ceremony & Reception at the top and the Shower underneath. (My reasoning: The Ceremony & Reception are important for all of the guests whereas the showe is only important for (some of) the female guests.)

Thank you for taking the time to visit our site.

I feel like this can be removed (Front Page)

 

It was February of 2005 My Dad (Rick)

“My Dad” does not need to be capitalized. (About us)

Your wedding party pictures seem distorted :/

Perhaps you can crop out the dead grass in your bridal shower picture?
