    My invitations were sent ages ago and were shop bought, Although I did love them and they had a small element of DIY in them, I so wish that I had the time or the creative genius to have done something like this. Well done - I hope you are loving married life :)

                Id love to do this as my invites. But I am not sure because of the costs of shipping 40 invites to England!!!. Also I am not sure if it is allowed to "export" sand

                    all of your ideas are amazing!!

                    This project took me a couple of months.  I did a lot of research as to what I wanted on my website, and by research, I mean stalking other bride's AMAZING websites, especially Coconoir's!  (Gotta love you, girl!! )  I wanted the website done before I sent out the invitations, since they could look up all of the info they needed to make a decision on whether they were coming or not.  Also, there's an RSVP section on the website, so it saved us money in not making RSVP cards & buying stamps for those.


                    I wanted to use a free website.  At first, I started with theknot.com.  I was really disappointed in their lack of options as far as customizing the look of the pages.  So, I switched to weddingwire.com.  I'm REALLY happy with using that website.  I would really recommend it!


                    Intro pg.jpg

                    The welcome page.  It's flash player and moves the images one at a time onto the page - looks very snazzy and upscale!  They give you an option to password protect it for just your guests' eyes.... that's what we did.


                    Home pg.jpg

                    Our home page.  A lot of the wording was from other brides on BDW!  Thank you so much for sharing your websites with me!!


                    Bride & Groom.jpg

                    Bride & Groom Page.  Coconoir had the awesome idea on her site of having the Groom write about the Bride and vice versa.  So that's what we did.  I think it's a nice touch.... and then it's also not like you're tooting your own horn so to speak.


                    Wedding Party.jpg

                    Wedding Party page.  I used a lot of the "custom" pages on weddingwire so that I could make it look how I wanted.  I wrote about my bridesmaids, and Casey wrote about his groomsmen.


                    I hope this gives you some ideas for your own!


                    If you're looking for ideas for your own website, please PM me for the password to our site.  I'd love to be able to help you!  I don't know what I would have done if I couldn't have looked at other brides' sites!
