Theresa Hawk's designs are so hawt. I want to peek at other mywedding.com sites OBBs have made! POST EM, ladies! 2 agree Reply Ha! Since I'm slowly building the wedsite I barely visit it. Earlier today I visited again and looked at the templates – picked one out thinking OMGHOWDIDIMISSTHISBEFORE?!?! Clearly, I have a sixth sense for new awesomeness. Reply I never found a free wedsite with templates that I really liked – even among the ones at mywedding.com – so I set one up on Blogger, where I can tweak the template to my heart's content, choose the URL, embed a Google Docs form in the RSVP page, load photos from Picasa, update pages via e-mail, etc. It's a good option for tech geek brides (and grooms) but easy enough that even technophobes can do it with a little patience. I can post a how-to on the tribe boards if anyone's interested…? Reply Yeah, for those of us who are on the more nerdy end of the spectrum, creating your own site via Blogger or Tumblr or WordPress or any number of other hosted blogging platforms is a GREAT option for wedding websites. Heck, I made mine from scratch! Templated "wed-sites" are a great option, however, for folks who's eyes just glazed over at your suggestion of embedding google docs, loading photos from Picasa, etc. I think those of us who are nerdy know we're nerdy and know what to do — wedsites are for everyone else. 🙂 Reply Hell, even being a nerd I would rather use mywedding.com. A "wedsite" just isn't important enough to put that much effort into, so it's a great option for those of us who are WAY too busy to build another site 1 agrees Reply It's actually not that difficult or time-consuming, and once it's set up, it's pretty much done. I'd rather have the flexibility and be able to customise it, rather than being annoyed that it doesn't have the features I want. But, to each their own. Reply see this stuff, just makes me get inspired for changes to my current website….as i'm striving to be more "me". lol! I love it. they are gorgeous. I have much respect for designers!!!! 🙂 Reply Thank you for posting this! The wedding website is something I'd been putting off, because it seemed like too much work. Just another project, ya know? BUT! I'm now in love with that "soft focus" template… and just completely made my website in less than an hour! And it's gorgeous. So thank you!! Reply we also used my wedding.com and the offbeat designs – they are so easy to use and the designs are awesome! Reply NICE. Thank baby jeebus for these designs. So good. Reply I love their templates! So many to choose from so it was really hard but we finally narrowed it down. I have gotten so many compliments from people on it!! Reply I would totally use this if I could password protect. Because I can't, I'm stuck with the Knot… Reply Hi A.M.! This is Bradford from mywedding and I just wanted to let you know that we do offer a password protection option with the wedding websites. And, if you have any questions about this, feel free to write in to Sam at email@example.com and he'll give you the detailed low down! Hope this helps! Reply Mine is still not finished but I'm working on it :). I agree with Halle it was just so much easier to enter the information than to format everything myself. I know I would obsess over every tiny detail if I made it from scratch. I love it just as much without all the time and energy wasted. Kudos to those who make it all their own!
