I’m building mine currently in WordPress! I’m including times and location info, obviously :), and I’m also going to stick a Google map in there because I find them fun. Our ceremony and location are in the same spot, but if they were separate you can connect them with a line and use cute icons to mark them on the map.

Other than that, we’re going to put up our registry info, a short bio on each of us for those who only know one of us, and probably a cute poll with songs.

We have one. Mywedding.com has some really cute templates. As far as info, we put a Tab for “Our Story” including how we met, started dating, our engagement, etc. There is also a tab for our wedding party with cute little desriptions of each person & a photo, and we also have our registries (gotta get those gifts!). We also have a tab for wedding events which will eventually include showers, parties, etc when plans are finalized. THEN… we have a tab for accomodations & attractions for out of town guests. Some people are kinda against wedding websites, but I think they’re so fun to look at & reading the “how we met” stories always gives insight to the couple.

We have a guest book. Accomodations tab. The Wedding Information.  A detailed description of the food choices. On-line RSVPing for all events. A quiz. We added a pole actually and let our guests pick our wedding cake 🙂 Our engagment pics are there. The story of us and how we met. Little descriptions of all of our attendants.Our registry information. And what to do in CT for our out of town guests.

  • Wedding: July 2010 - The Tower Club

We made a FAQ page, in a question & answer format (ie., “What should I wear?” The wedding is black tie), an “about us” page with a brief description of how we met and a few photos, a “registry” page with our registries listed & linked, an “rsvp” page since we had online rsvp, a “directions” page with directions to our venue, and a “hotels” page for people to book the hotels we blocked for them.

Since I built mine myself, I also had a password-protected section for family and bridal party, listing things like what they needed to wear (and where to find it), rehearsal dinner times, the wedding day schedule, and who was going to be in the wedding day portraits.

  • Wedding: October 2011

I have the following:

  • Welcome Page: It has one of our our e-pics and a quick note just thanking our guests for stopping by the site. It also lists our wedding e-mail address and tells them to drop us a line if they have any questions.
  • About US: We each have our own bio. In here I listed where we’re from, where we work, what our favorite things are, etc. We also have a bio for our kitty (lame, I know!).
  • Wedding Info: This breaks down all of our wedding events and gives times and locations. We also mention the suggested dress code in this section.
  • Accomidations: The resort we’re getting married at actually has 3 different hotels on the grounds (ranges from $75-$375 per night) so we basically just ripped off the resorts descriptions of each hotel and listed those there. We included the rates and pictures of the room. We also listed to mention the Me/Him wedding when booking for the discount.
  • Attractions: We’re getting married in a popular vacation spot so we listed a few of our favorite attractions with pictures and details for each.
  • Directions: We have guests coming from both north and south so we gave detailed directions for both. I also ripped off the google map image and photoshopped a little heart over where the resort is located.
  • Bridal Party: We listed each member of our bridal party and what their role is as well as a brief bio of each person and a picture. My bridesmaids are my 3 best friend so I posted a few pictures of us growing up as well.
  • Blog: I have my wedding blog through our wedding website too but that has an additional password required to access (I didnt want to ruin all the surprises for our guests. As of right now, only our moms have this password).

Our website is through our own doman (www.wedding.FI’slastname.com) so I was able to do some more customization that normally wouldnt have been possible through the generic ones. Our site is also username and password protected because Fiance is a stickler for privacy. I wish I could post it because its so damn cute, but I cant. 🙁

@Belle2Be: weddingtracker.com

It even lets you put in your food choices. Plus it let my sister (MOH) have the shower rsvp notifications directed to her email.  I did pay the $29 bucks for an upgrade.

I’ve seen some brides put on a “song request” page to help make sure their reception music is in line with what guests want… our DJ’s site offers this, but I’m trying to figure out a way to sync it up with my wedding website so guests don’t have to visit tons of pages.

@Belle2Be: I have an intro, venue info, hotel info, local attractions, the option to RSVP online, info about the ceremony/reception, where we are registered, and I’m building up a photo  gallery.
