Oh, the times they are a changin’! Today’s savvy brides and grooms are sharing their love stories and communicating their wedding details on their very own wedding websites! There are several wedding website companies available online that allow users to design their site for free or for a reasonable fee. Most of these online resources allow couples to customize domain names, backgrounds, layouts and photo formats to reflect the personal style of the wedding theme. One of the most popular wedding website services is eWedding.com, which also provides user-friendly methods to track RSVPs, budgets and mailing lists. But what we’re thoroughly enamored with is not just the organizational aspects but the speedy and thorough manner of storytelling in a visually appealing fashion. Guests and family members can not only share where the bride and groom met, but watch a video of how he popped the question or hear the audio of her acceptance! It’s an incredible way to share the joy of the private moment with friends and family! Recently, one of our clients, Juliya and Armand, launched their own wedding website to share their engagement journey, including how they met in the first place:
“Way back when (Fall – 2003), we met in a Management Information Systems class at Penn State. But it wasn’t until 2007 that we started dating. It all began with a camping trip, where Armand took us fishing in a sinking boat. He caught a fish. I caught the motor….twice and dropped my sunglasses in the water. Armand’s outdoor skills were very impressive. He set up the entire site by himself (including building a fire) and told me I could sit in the folding chair and relax. I later learned that was guy-code for “Don’t touch or do anything because you’re going to kill us!” From that day on, we planned many trips together and have been traveling all over the United States as part of our “Seeing All 50 States Before We’re 30!” plan.”
Guests are encouraged to visit their website often to stay up on the wedding planning process, the bridal showers and bachelor/ette parties, as well as the funny stories and sweet moments that develop as they lead up to their October 8th celebration at ACE. We applaud the idea and look forward to seeing photos of their Hawaiian honeymoon!
