AdaLee: ok. Thing is, very few free technology vendors will take the time to create a custom error message. It’s not worth the engineering resources.

There’s also a number of bugs that could create this error including network speed, server load, etc. It will probably be addressed within a few minutes to a few hours, since their biz model is ads, which requires front end display to work well.

If this is unacceptable, you could easily get free hosting credits from Heroku, pay $10 for a domain name and do the styling yourself (CSS / HTML) for a static site or use any number of open sourced front end web frameworks if you want an interactive web app.

also, if it makes you feel any better, I only check out the website right before the wedding to get a handle on logistics and such. I depend on the website to be up (and googleable) as I’m traveling there or else it’s possible that I’ll be the jerk who’s calling every mutual friend to figure out the logistical details the morning of the wedding.

AdaLee:  I wouldn’t worry too much.  My husband and I usually look only on the website to see if they put registry information there.  We do that right before each wedding we go to.  I don’t think I even read what they have 🙁 So for now, I wouldn’t worry about it not being set up.  I think many people do read but not until closer to the wedding.
