I need to build/set up our wedding website. It is stressing me out. I am overthinking it. Well, I am probably more accurately underthinking it because I really want it to be much more ‘blog’ like than my fiancee does…No surprise there.

If I had it my way, I’d have the site made in ten minutes by adding a page to my site with the bare minimum for details. You know, an RSVP field, a Google Map, and event details. Simple. To the point. But the more information I get on there, the more the page starts to look cluttered.The least a wedding site should be is appealing to the eye…Using my site here is OK, but I don’t want to change the entire theme of my site just because I can’t change the theme of a single page…

I was messing around with Google Sites,but the templates are horrible, and customizing the various pages is not intuitive…

Another imporant thing is putting the link on the invitations. I would like a nice looking link, not some huge long random thing like a lot of sites provide.

With so many details coming up, I don’t want the site to be a huge project. And like much of the other aspects of the big day, I need it to be cheap. Free is best… 🙂

I get some great advice from you bloggers out there, so I put the question to you. If you got married, and you had a wedding website, what did you use? What lessons did you learn?
