Would you be willing to share your site?  I’d love to see it and then comment.

I know we did ours on WeddingWire and it’s very simple/easy. I didn’t want to open ourselves up to family/friends going WTH when reading it. So it only has basic info (about us, how we met, epics) then everything is wedding business (hotels, time/date, location). It’s worked out well. If you are worried about people judging you maybe you should either say the hell with it and leave it up…it is YOUR wedding website or delete everything unnecessary (blogs, super lovey stuff etc). It’s 100% up to you!

@bridepower – I think your site is good.  Personally, I would keep the blog to wedding related things.  And again, for me, the homepage has A LOT going on with it.  It appeared to be a little overwhelming but again, that’s my taste.

Otherwise, your site gives the pertinent information.  Good job.

I did our wedding website via The Knot and posted similar info as Soon2beeMrsM. Only pertinent info about the wedding and extremely basic info about us with a few pix.

have you considered 2 separate sites??

i have a wedsite – that the guests see for details of the wedding and such, the kind you send on Save-The-Date Cards and invites

and

i have a blog – that i use solely for wedding, that is to communicate with parents, wedding party and vendors(if they’re so interested) about our visions of the day, our DIY projects we’re working on and our anxieties and joys!

perhaps, now would be a good time to split the two – so your guests aren’t getting an earful of stuff that you’re concerned may be inappropriate.

I think your website looks good. I would also agree with @ stephinPA and skip the personal blog. I think the more basic/simple/easy to navigate the better. For “our story” just a sweet story about the proposal would be sufficient ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree about the 2 wedding sites. As important as our weddings are to us, let’s be honest, not many people care if we found the perfect shade of peonies for our bouquet. Perhaps seperate the two, then you can give the blog address to your friends who want to know! You could even include a link to your blog on your wedding website, so if people really are interested they can check it out!

I would have never put blogs on a wedding website to start with.  Why not transfer those entries over to a separate blogging site?  Just turn off the blog feature on your wedding website so that guests can’t see it.
