One of my favorite things to do is scour through wedding websites. I love reading the story behind the to-be-wedded couple, the bios of all the bridal party members, details about the upcoming wedding, and flipping through pictures from all stages of their lives.
When Drew and I got engaged, I knew I wanted to create a wedding website that was a little unusual, totally customizable, and pretty but informative. I’ve had a personal tumblr blog for a little over a year and love the formatting, so when it came to making decisions, I chose to make our wedding website via tumblr.
I looked at traditional wedding website formats and made the pages for ours still pretty traditional with a twist. We have the standard “about us” page, the “where we’re registered,” and blogged a couple of times to showcase our engagement session and some basic FYIs. I even chronicled our entire 4.5 year dating relationship on our “history” page with pictures from freshman year to recent adventures. One of my favorites is our bridal party page!! I spent one afternoon comprising biographies and finding the perfect pictures to illustrate our relationships with our nearest and dearest. It’s pretty fun. :)
Tumblr allowed me to customize our colors, theme, and put up pictures (as well as embed our engagement video) on every page! We’re both very pleased with how it turned out.
Oh, and we totally paid homage to our First Dance song through the website’s URL and title. Jon Foreman’s In My Arms is “our song,” so we scattered lyrics from it throughout. Drew and I have called one another “shore” and “sea” since we fell in love with the song (Drew even engraved a ring box for me a couple years ago with it!)– hence myoceanandme.tumblr.com.
