    drbee12 :  I skipped that section on our wedding website. In fact, I pretty much skipped all of the personal feel-good questions and stuck to providing only pertinent information needed for the wedding on the website.

    I don’t think it’s weird. I met my SO in college but my sister met her past two boyfriends online. I think it’s a shame that she is ashamed of it and tells everyone they met in college.

    You don’t have to have a How We Met section, but if you do I agree with the PPs who said you have nothing to be ashamed of. You can mention you met on tinder (or online if you prefer) in one line and then tell everyone about your first date since it’s when you physically met!

    You definetely don’t have to do a how we met section for this.

    Every wedding website I’ve had to RSVP on (a few) I’ve literally just RSVP’d and clicked out without looking at anything. I’m not sure if a lot of people are like this, but odds are most of guests won’t even read the pages. One of my close friends did her wedding website up all professional with tons of pages and she tracked the hits (She’s a web designer). Barely anyone looked at anything but the RSVP setup.

    I am a hard core, dedicated truth teller.  The truth at any price.  It comes out of my abusive childhood.  My Dh and I met online many years ago now, when it was less common than it is now.   But, it’s never been my nature to tell anything other than the unvarnished truth, so I always answered honestly when someone asked how we met.

    Dh, however, told people we met through a mutual friend.  He lost points with me for that.  It wasn’t fatal, but it certainly didn’t elevate him.

    I also met my Fiance on Tinder and I’m a little bit proud of it! We were both looking for casual dates on tinder as TONS of people our age are, but got incredibly lucky and found a great love! Honestly, there is almost no way I would have met my guy without tinder, so I’m glad it exists!

    I don’t know how Tinder works exactly, it became a thing after DH and I started dating. But if you’re uncomfortable saying tinder, say “We met online” or “We’re an online dating success story!”.

    Or just be completely honest and have a really short How We Met:

    “I/He swiped right, and the rest is history!”

    2/3 weddings I went to last year were couples who met on tinder! I don’t think its anything to hide! that being said, I am not a fan of the how we met section of wedding websites in general

    We had a very basic website, just hotel information and things to do in the area because half our guest list was from out of town.  We didn’t have a “how we met” or “about us” section at all.

    A friend of mine met her husband at a bar and she tells the story all the time.  There’s no shame in how you meet nowadays.
