brandy.dutoit:  It’s cute but the pages were very slow to load.

If ou make it to Florence, Oregon make sure to have dinner at The Waterfront Depot. The best food I’ve ever had and very reasonable prices.

Oh, she’s right!  I could get the header to load, but I didn’t see anything else on there?  Love the graphic though!! The registry page did load.

Also, I live in Oregon!  I highly recommend going down to Cannon Beach, it’s just North of Tillamook.  Lovely little town, and a nice beach area!  The town has a few awesome places to eat.

Also, we were looking at those cabins for a possible honeymoon location in October, would you mind sending me a review when you get back?!  Thanks!

It’s very cute! It took me a while to figure out that I needed to scroll down the page to see anything change. Like, I probably accidentally scrolled down and figured it out. I was looking around for places to click. Might be a bit confusing for your guests. Or maybe it’s just me . . .

brandy.dutoit:  you might want to add something on the front page that says “scroll down to see our story” (or the equivalent, I know there’s probably a cuter, more eloquent way to say that, but . . . it’s late . . .) so that visitors to your site don’t have to figure it out, esp for less tech savvy people.

Tried a few times and every time it crashed my ipad. Not sure if you’re concerned about tablet compatability, but it seems to lack it.

brandy.dutoit:  It’s adorable!!  I didn’t have an issue with the pages crashing – I’m using Safari.

Two things though:

– the part where there’s POW CRACK and some kind of sadness… the sadness description is covered by the pow crack and I can’t read it, which is quite anticlimatic

– the page counter thing at the bottom… not sure if that’s supposed to allow you to scroll through the pages by clicking on the forward arrow, but it didn’t work for me.

Also, I’m a snoop and also looked at your registry.  I’m a Wyomingite and I have to say that you’re CRAZY if you think Wyoming is scenery-deficient!?!  Attached is proof, just a quick snap from a trip last summer.  But it’s cool, we like it when people think that so we keep the place to ourselves 😉

brandy.dutoit: What’s it built on? HTML 5? The UX is not exactly intuitive, but it’s pretty. I couldn’t get pages to load fast enough, which is a bouncer for me. 

Also, not sure how you have it set up, but if you didn’t SEO the site, it may not show up in Google. I am that guest that frantically searches on Google, through email, etc. for wedding details before calling / texting the bride because they don’t have their wedding website searchable on Google, and I can’t find the wedding documents. It’s a small detail, but one worth considering.

Your site is so cute and unique.  My internet is horrible, and it loaded pretty quick for me.  I kept clicking on the 1 to get the page to move but read on this thread you have to scroll down. Ooops. Was this a template or did you make it yourself?  Regardless, you did a great job!!

I tried looking at it on my phone but only the header would download 🙁
