Hi Bees! I’ve recently finished our wedding website and was wondering if I could have some feedback before I share it with anyone in real life?
There isn’t much information under “weddng details” right now because nothing is confirmed quite yet, but I will be augmenting that section in the next couple of days.

@JLR1982: I love it! It’s clean and easy to navigate. 🙂

@JLR1982: It looks really nice, classy but personal. I love that you’ve incorporate the dogs – the photo of your little girl running in the snow is adorable!
The only thing I wonder about is the “Contact us” page. I guess it’s there for your guests to send you any questions they might have, but will this section be expanded later on? I’m primarily thinking about including an RSVP component.

Are you adding an rsvp section?

Hmm I wasn’t planning on adding an RSVP section, should I?
I was going to do the old fashioned mailed RSVPs.

Just think in this modern age people would rather click on a mouse than mail something.
My friend added an rsvp section when she got married and pretty much everyone rsvp’d online plus everyone was in one place so it was easier when she came to final numbers, but i mean each to their own it’s whatever is best for you.
I do love the simplicity of your site though and the photos are lovely.

Gorgeous job! I also did my webiste using a regular website template rather than a “wedding website” and I think it looks so much nicer, plus is more fun to make.
And I also got married in Mexico! Woo woo! My wedding was one week ago today 😀

If you do go the digital RSVP route, I think an easy way to do it is by linking to a google form. That’s what I did, it’s super easy. Especially since your having a destination wedding, it’s nice to get details like when people are arriving, if they are staying at your resort, etc. If they don’t book through your centralized travel agent, you’ll have to collect this info yourself.

It looks clean and classic. Super cute! If you are going to send out invites, include a small rsvp postcard for the “old fashioned” guest and than possibly add an rsvp form to your website for the younger generation.

@JLR1982: I love it! I love the pictures, the stories, the easy navigation. You did a good job.
I read your engagement story and just wanted to say that it was adorable!

@cbgg: +1 to google forms!
I was part of arranging a large Swedish conference in Toronto last year – and we had to know lots of different things: name, where they were going to stay, arrival and departure time, what activities they were going to participate in… I created a google form for all of it and it worked as a charm, pretty much 100% of the people attending used the website instead of the PDF they could download and fill in.
For our wedding, which is also a Destination Wedding, we wanted a lot of the information I posted above. The location is remote, so we need to know when people come in so that we can provide transport. We’re also having an activity day two days before the wedding and need to know who will do what. Sure, I could have added all that info to an RSVP card – but it felt like our guests would just think it was a hazzle and postpone their RSVP.
So, to answer your question – I would at least consider adding this component! If the info for your webpage will be on the invitation regardless, why not do the RSVP through it and save some paper?

Thank you ladies, I added an RSVP form (my hosting company has a built in form function, so I just went with that) 🙂

Love your website! I love the clean modern feel to it all.
Very jealous… I’m still working on ours (I have to re-do it as our venue/date changed a while ago, sigh)
March 1, 2014?
What an aweseome date! 😛

if you are doing traditional RSVP’s then take the rsvp page off.
the rsvp page right now: under the details section, the font is very small and blurry looking. i can barely read it.
