has anybody else done this? i seriously feel like i’m in highschool trying to write an essay.
our wedding is destination so i understand that it’s very important to give our guests something to refer to, but GOOD GOD it’s hard writing “our story”
sorry just needed to vent real quick! carry on with your day 🙂

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.

@LiliKitty: our’s is through a website we’re using with our planner called “planning pod” which is FINE i just feel like i’m blanking HARDCORE on writing “our story” because it’s somewhat complicated and i don’t want to get into TOO much detail haha!

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.
