I spent a couple of days googling 'how to build a website' and it just seemed way too complicated. And there was a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills marathon on which was way more appealing. After my realization that building a website with no prior experience was a crazy idea, I started searching for a template we liked.
I checked out MyWedding, TheKnot and Brides. I was not thrilled with any of their templates. I wanted something simple and that didn't look too much like a wedding website. I wanted a wedding website that didn't look like a generic wedding website. As I type that I realize how insane that sounds. I also contemplated making my own template and website through blogger. Mrs. Ostrich has a wonderful tutorial on how to build one.
Finally I found our perfect template at WeddingWire. I was just about to give up and there it was... in our wedding colors..... and free! Does it get any better than free when you are planning a wedding?
In my mind having a custom domain makes it seem like we did a lot more work for this website than we really did. Until I post this, guests might be really impressed with my computer skills!
Any projects you did that seem more ambitious than they really were? Do you create a wedding website?
