victory #4: wedding website
I accomplished so many "wedding things" before I came to New England...thank goodness. My list was a mile long, as I won't be doing any planning from 3000 miles away...and I was intimidated as hell. So, I busted out the Sharpy to draw fat black lines through my accomplishments. It worked. Got everything done. (even my jaunt to the post office the morning our road trip began).
One thing that I had been terrified to attempt was our wedding website. I've seen them online...and noticed that some are definitely better than others. Clearly, I would want ours to be rather lovely. Yet I didn't want to spend weeks and weeks laboring over it's creation, nor did I want to spend 1 cent on it as there are so many free sources. I also wanted to complete it in a couple of hours. Well, Sunday afternoon came and my entire weekend "to do" list was completed with an exception of one item...the website. So I sat down and decided to only allow myself 20 minutes of bridal blog research to find the easiest website I could.
So I went to 10,000 Wedding. I remembered reading a post about her wedding website a long while back...and that was the extent of my research. I used the same wedding website she used. How uber creative of me...I know I know.
It is mywedding.com
It was super easy...like SUPER easy. I was a lil bummed we didn't get a fancy domain name...but then I got over it. It was free. Crazy easy. Had a zillion designs to choose from, in a zillion colors...features like photo galleries, and song downloads...and did I mention it was easy?
My Guy composed the "Our Story" section. Would you believe me if I told you it made me cry? Our love story is so divine, as all love stories are. I will certainly have to share our story with you someday. Anyhow...
The wedding website is done! It's accomplished! I feel good about it!
And it does look rather lovely.
