I have finally finished our wedding website, which felt great checking off my not-so-short to do list. For some reason, I put this off until the last possible minute. Instead of sending a traditional save the date, we decided to send an announcement through a website called Paperless Post. This was the motivation to finish the website.
There are an overwhelming number of options but we chose mywedding.com. For someone who is not computer savvy, it is easy to set up and update. The website gives a wide variety of page options but we chose the more simplistic route. We wanted the website to be used as a place for guests to get information on the wedding events and hotel accommodations. However, we did set up one page to show off our favorite engagement pictures!
Above is a snap shot of the cover. We chose a black and theme which is perfect for our wedding. That picture is also one of our engagement pictures. Again thanks to Steve Koo Photography!
Casa Sugar recently did a post about bringing back carnations. I do hope that carnations make a comback! They are perfect if you like dense flowers. Similar to roses, carnations are better for large arrangements.
I was famished. After a 36 hour adrenaline rush, I finally could eat. We brought in mini burgers and mini-sandwiches along with pomme frittes from Minnie’s.
The Anniversary Dance kicked off the third dance set. Although we still have our last course, the music never stopped. By this time, everyone was ready to celebrate.
After the second set of dancing, Denton and I went up to say thank you to all of our guests. It meant a lot for everyone to be there, especially since our guest list was 80% out of town. I also reminded guests to pace themselves as there was an after party!
Once we finished cutting the cake, the second course was served. Since salad courses doesn’t last as long as other courses, we had our Maid of Honor and Best Man give the toasts.
