Wow, I’m impressed. I thought it was enough that I thought to put down local fun activities and airport information. LOL

Isn’t all this what Facebook is for?

Ha. I knew a girl who had like this enormous page long story of how they met and it was super risque- like romance novel. Bad, just bad.

Ours has info about the hotel block and a link to the hotel’s site.

Registry information with links.

Details for the wedding day with a link to Google maps.

And a contact us button that links to email.

@anon00:  I started to do a wedding website but gave up because I had pretty much nothing to put on it. Maybe I should have hired that couple to do my PR :/  lol

@anon00:  Just reread your post and I wish we’d done 2 PAGES with info about our cats. Damn. Too late now.

@anon00:  haha yes. none of my friends are married yet, but when i was looking for a good template online i came across so many that were overfilled with info about the couple, billions of photos, their entire history, etc. etc. it was quite overwhelming. i eventually couldn’t even find a template online that i liked enough (they were all just a bit over the top) so ended up creating one myself on blogspot, with some html/css tweaking to make it look like a site rather than a blog. we have the bare minimum info on there (mostly because it will be a Destination Wedding for a lot of people) – i mean, the people we are inviting are people who actually know us, so they don’t need to read mini biographies about ourselves!!

Either they think this will help each side get to know the other side…or someone just really needs a hobby.

Regardless, I don’t see why we should be expected to care about the cat.

I went kind of overboard on my wedding website. I just really had fun designing it! I also made a page on my pets. If you go to my website, to the About Us page, there’s a secret link to the pet biographies embedded in the picture of my dog. Embarassed

A little weird – I have the wedding information, nearby hotels, and smoe fun things in the area that the groom and I reccommend.  Seems like overkill to have anything more than that!

@likewoah:  I mean…I’m kind of a cat lady…at one point we considered having our cats in some way on each paper item we sent out. Ex. Ears peaking over the bottom of the STD, Tails on the side of the RSVP, etc. And our cats are on out cake topper, so I’d totally be down for this.

Designing the wedding website has been my favorite part of planning so far. I liked it even more than the tastings! If you’re not into making websites, then that’s one thing. If it’s actually fun, then what’s the harm?

I think it depends on the situation. I’m getting married with a very small (10 people) ceremony and then just sending out announcements with a link to our wedding website. I’m going to put a lot of details about who were are and how we met etc on the website because I’ve never met most of my FI’s extended family (he has a lot of aunts and uncles who are all scattered around North America).

Plus I think you can find out cute little details about the couple. Many times people only know the bride’s side or the groom’s side and they may not know, for example, that the jokes in the best man’s speech all have to do with the exchange to Europe that the groom took.

@AllieBee12:  But I think even in that situation, there’s such a thing as going too far- like the one I was talking about above there was WAY too much info on them kissing when they first met (where his hands were on his body, him being warm to the touch). Just a big Too Much Information situation. So i think there’s a right way to do it, the common sense way, and a wrong way.
