Our Manly Wedding Website

When we decided on a wedding website, we didn’t give it much thought.  In fact, my MOH and I first realized we needed a website when she was helping me with the Save the Dates!  There was a blank space on the magnets for a URL, and in a rush to fill it, we did a quick Google search for wedding website hosts.  BAD idea.  We were completely overwhelmed!  There were so many options, and at first glance, everything was way too feminine to force upon Adam and the more masculine half of the guest list.

So we went with what I knew:  Blogs!  MOH and I created a new WordPress blog that would be disguised as a wedding website.  It was free, fast, and super simple!  Did I mention free?  Here’s what we did:

1.  Create a new blog, and look for a blog template that emphasizes separate pages.  Anything with large tabs works nicely.  Keep in mind that you can usually customize the colors and banners.

2.  Click to activate the most tab-poppin’ template, and choose titles for your pages.  The first page (titled “Home” on mine) is where you would normally blog.  I put a short “Welcome” message there and will not be adding any other entries to the page.

(Isn’t it so manly?  I figured my personal blog and Weddingbee were girlicious enough that I could beef up our wedding website.)

3.  As in a regular wedding website, input helpful info and cute pictures on each page.

Et voila!  It’s simple.  It’s easy to navigate.  It’s got stuff in it.  That covered all our needs. 🙂

Was your wedsite a long and involved process, or did you whip it up in a hurry?
