(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!
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.
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 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 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!
