Not much time for STDs and Website
Posted 10 December 2007 - 11:59 PM
I also have to scramble to set up a wedding website to include on that STD email. I saw Ann's wedding website list, but I'm wondering if anyone has a particular favorite that is extra customizable (using only your own graphics and photos)?
Has anyone has gone the blog route, and if so, were you able to add an rsvp form into the blog, and if so, did you use someone else's code to add it in to the html or did the blog software easily allow you to do it?

Regarding the virtual STDs... I remember someone here did their invitations this way. I believe it was Sarah (SASSYGIRL). She showed me a sample and they looked great, plus it kept track of everything for her (yes and no's, how many sent, to whom etc). The site was great. I'd contact via PM her to see what she used

Our guests thought they were cute. But they were very basic, no rsvp technology.

I wondered about this being a faux-pas, but our guests have responded very favourably. We printed out the entire site and had it bound for an aunt and our grandmas, who don't have email. We just keep them posted with updates by phone. We password protected the RSVP page of the website and put the password on the invitation.
Both the STDs and the invitations are simple word docs... we wanted to make sure everyone would be able to open them. Jason did some fancy stuff on his computer and sent it to me, but since I didn't have the programs, I couldn't open the attachment. We have lots of family out in rural areas who are still on dial-up, so we didn't want this to be an issue (*we tried downloading some fancy fonts, but they didn't open either*). We just put text on top of meaningful pictures using paint, and they worked out beautifully!
We decided since we are having a DW that we could push the envelope a little, and it has worked out really well. Total cost for STDs and Invites: $0.00!!!!
Let me know what questions you have,

Nespie - That is great that you were able to save $ and the environment! but for me it is more a time issue - in theory I'd love to have beautiful STDs but I'm not sure about the time. And my family would croke if I didn't have paper invites. Its the east coast NY wedding seriousness thing I guess (where I'm from originally). Anyhow, I'll figure it out!
amyh - I send out evites for every little party I have and I wanted my wedding to be special. Man, maybe I'll do paper and online STDs?
Galit - what you did is SO what I'll end up doing knowing me. I'm too much of an indecisive perfectionist so I either go all the way or um, just get the point across simply .
Anyhow thank you all for your quick responses!
