The Wedding Website

So we've officially passed the 6-months-until-the-big-day mark, and I'm starting to feel a little panicked about everything that we have not done. I've been so busy working that we haven't gotten nearly enough wedding tasks done in the last 3 weeks. JT & I are blocking out next weekend as "wedding planning only." Things that need to get done include registering, meeting with the florist, collecting addresses and finalizing the invite list for our Save-the-dates (so that we are ready to mail as soon as they are printed), and many more little things.

One thing that's almost done is our wedding website. I started looking around at all the free wedding website templates back in February, thinking "OK, most of them are cheesy looking and kind of ugly, but I'm sure I can find something that will be decent." Um....wrong. I found absolutely nothing that I actually liked, at least in the "free" realm. I did find some options that, if I was willing to pay $20 or $30, I could customize to make more palatable. But considering I already shell out money for my domain name and my little corner of the internet, I figured why not just piggyback off that and have one of my many, many talented friends help me with the site?

So that's what we did. The lovely and amazing Laura has been hard at work putting together this little beauty for us:

You may recognize Laura's work from this blog -- she also designed the sweet little owl that greets you when you visit. Now we just have to work on getting all the content on the pages.

And in case you are wondering why I just don't provide a link to our website so that you can see it in all its glory, because this is a public blog, I'm not going to be linking to our finished wedding website. I have to keep some things private :)
