I love everything DIY !! So, I thought it would be cool- since I am making everything from the thank you notes, Save the dates, invitations, to the sign in book, to post me making everything on my blog on our wedding website. I thought it would be neat to show everyone how unique and handmade everything was. However, not everyone in my family agrees I should do that… they think I should keep it more secret or to myself… What do you think? Also, Is it nuts to post on the blog your adventure at the Bridal Extravaganza or the Bridal Shop looking through dresses? I just don’t know if the Blog on the personal wedding website is a good idea!? What is too much to post? HELP!
Thanks so much!

i personally wouldn’t because i like the element of surprise for my guests (haha, i’m sneaky like that! ) , however there is something very cool about letting them in on your “journey” to the aisle. I think if you want to, do it! Make sure to share your link with us if you want us to follow too 🙂

I have a link to my blog on the website, but I don’t even know if anyone’s been on the site! 🙂

I think it’s great to blog about your wedding (obviously – I read the bees’ posts here on WB all the time!), but your personal wedding website probably isn’t the best place for it. Think about it – the intended audience for your personal site is your wedding guests, right? But the people who would probably be most interested in hearing about all your wedding planning ideas and activities are most likely other brides, like the readers here on WB and other wedding planning sites. (I mean, I know my fiance’s college buddies couldn’t give a crap about the tissue-paper pomanders I’ve been making, but other brides might!)

We used the wedding website for information that guests needed to know only… We didn’t want them to get bogged down in details that didn’t matter to them. We tried to keep it clean and simple.
It’s hard enough to get guests to type in the URL and read the information you want them to know!

I have a link to my blog on our wedding website. No one really reads it though. Just my mom and a few others that really like the DIY details. I think it’s fun to include, just make sure it doesn’t make your website confusing – aka have all the important info (times & places) up front and not hidden within blog layers or anything.

I was thinking about putting info about my experiences for the engagment photos, bridal shower, etc. Nothing that will give away details about the actual wedding, but about the events leading up.
