I made our site with iWeb too!

A tip for those using fancy fonts: Most people won’t have the fancy font installed on their computer.  So while your website will look gorgeous when you preview it on your own, on Aunt Sally’s computer she’s seeing her default font, something like Arial.  If you add a shadow to the fancy fonted text, and set the opacity to 5%, the text will be converted to an image and everyone will see your fanciness.

If you are web-savy…dreamhost.com is a great host.  I was able to set up an email address @oururl.com that we access through gmail.

Your site looks great!

I am working on a site for my parents’ business in iweb as well and recently came across a great website to create forms (this is basically a “form”) a place to input information and have it added onto the site, or what ours is used, to email a “contact us” email or event inquiry email.  Anywho, they also have a premade template for wedding rsvp!  It’s totally easy to use, just build it in their dohicky, click on “source” above the window and copy the html, then drag the html snippet on iweb into the page you want it on, paste the html, hit apply and ta-da, a form!  

the website if you’re interested is http://www.jotform.com  free basic service that doesn’t have any ads or anything on it.  seriously not spamming here, i was just so stoked when I figured out how to do this!!!  πŸ™‚

also, quick tips, if you type transparent into the background color, you’ll be able to see the wording and the empty fields, there’s no solid color box that will show up.

@ PDX Bride – Yeah it’s not exactly hard, you just have to be patient and willing to fiddle around.  Feel free to PM me if you have problems.  Now that iWeb has a way to upload your site directly from the program it’s not that hard.  You used to have to upload your files manually (FTP) with the first version of iWeb.

Also, make sure you google discount codes for dreamhost before buying your domain and space.
