almost anyone can pull up Yelp and look up stuff to do

Back in 2010, when FSIL had just gotten engaged, I had the following conversation with Mr. Hammer?just before Christmastime:

Me: You should give FSIL and J [her then-fiance, now-husband and GM!] a wedding website for Christmas!
Mr. Hammer: A…wedding website? Why would they need a website?
Me: *blank stare*

You have much to learn, young grasshopper. After educating Mr. Hammer on all the possibilities (accommodation info! back stories! photos!), he agreed with my assessment and gifted them with a total badass website.

(It should be noted—and Mr. Hammer often does so—that Mr. Hammer is not technically a web designer or coder. He’s a software engineer, which I guess among the coder world is something different. However, when he’s able to turn a screen like this:

Image via HTML Color Codes

For serious, this is what his computer screen looks like 90% of the time, even when he’s not at work. The other 10% of the time, he’s on Reddit and/or sports forums. But I’m in no position to tease—90% of the time, *my* computer screen is filled with Weddingbee and/or Reddit’s?wedding planning forum.

…into a?super-profesh website, I say, no matter what the difference in skill set is, Mr. Hammer clearly has more web coding knowledge than your average bear. And certainly more than I, a below-average bear when it comes to all things tech.)

Anyway,解压密码, the point is, I had 100% confidence in Mr. Hammer’s ability to make us an awesome website when the time came, as long as I provided him with the content and helped him make it pretty. This took a freaking eternity, for the record. First, I spent a good couple of months intermittently agonizing over the content, making mock-ups in PowerPoint, making nitpicking tweaks, all that. And second, Mr. Hammer was not exactly eager to use his free time to code the thing. But we needed to have it ready for the save the dates, and I “needed” to send the save the dates a year in advance, so by mid-August, we had this:

I spent a lot of time (some might say, an excessive amount of time) combing the web for what kind of content to include in an effort to make our website as comprehensive a one-stop-shop as possible. In an effort to pay it forward, I thought I’d walk y’all through the pages we included.

First, our “about us” section:

Since we’ve been together for, um, a few years, we’ve both met almost all of the guests we’re inviting, so this section is probably less useful than it is for a wedding where the guests don’t know both the bride and groom. In those settings, I think this section is a great way to make the guests feel like they’ve met both, or at least know a little bit about them.

Still, though, a lot of our guests don’t know how we met beyond the fact that it was in high school, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to entertain and/or torture them with all the nitty-gritty details. I asked?Mr. Hammer to write the story from his perspective, in addition to me writing my side of the story. This was a pretty blatant effort on my part to make Mr. Hammer write nice things about me—but hey, it worked! Every time I look at this page, it brings on the warm and fuzzies.

Next up was the wedding info page, where we told guests exactly where and when the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception would be held.

I know some people (read: some women) stress out if they?don’t know if a?ceremony will?be on grass, on sand, or inside, so I made sure we were very clear about what the settings would be. I also used this as a chance to nag our guests into being on time—our venue allows guests to show up a half hour before the ceremony, and then we’ve only got a half hour scheduled for the ceremony itself, so I wanted to make sure our guests knew that we were planning on being punctual. As I noted on the website, though, anyone who knows my mom, FMIL, or me did *not* need to be told that we are obsessively on time.

I also included a little blurb about the history of our venue.

In its former life, Wychmere was Thompson’s Clam Bar, and it was an institution on the Cape. In fact, FMIL had eaten at Thompson’s, and my dad’s aunt (who lives in New York) told us that her family used to go to Thompson’s every time they went to the Cape, and when they learned it was gone a few years back, they were bummed (and now, they’re psyched to be back at the scene of the crime for our wedding!). So, I thought it’d be worth it to include a little shout-out to Wychmere’s past on our website. I paraphrased from Wychmere’s own website, and included a photo of its previous incarnation just for giggles.

We also included your typical list of stuff to do over the wedding weekend when guests aren’t busy, you know, watching us get married. In this day and age, almost anyone can pull up Yelp and look up stuff to do, but I always appreciate it when couples give the inside scoop on what?they?would recommend. So, we tried to make this part as personalized and detailed as possible. We included addresses, phone numbers, websites, and recommendations on (for example) our favorite sandwiches.

Finally, we?included a tab for signing our “guestbook,” a tab about our bridal parties, a tab for our registry links, and a tab for accommodations info. And that’s all she wrote! Our blood, sweat, and tears wrapped up in a single website. I will be crushed if our guests don’t use it. But, you know, nothing personal.

Did you guys have a wedding website? Did your guests use it?
