Okay so I just made a little website for our wedding basically with just a way to tell out of town guests (we have a lot of out of towners) what the local accommodations are and what local activities are in the area if they're staying for awhile. Very simple- very minimal.
Out of curiosity- I was looking online at other wedding websites an was BLOWN away by some of the things people write on them. I'm not as hardcore about etiquette as some people on this website (I probably fall somewhere in the middle about how much I adhere to it) but man- some of these people who make some of these websites really should have checked out this forum first!
I just read someone's website who has a HUGE FAQ section that includes things like:
-a 6 paragraph description on dress code- including what 4 colors they do not want people to wear (no black, white, red ???, or the bridal party's color- turquoise), how long and "elegant" ladies dresses should be (and specifies no cocktail dresses or summer dresses), and whether or not women are allowed to wear anything in their hair. It literally says something along the lines of "You may wear a small accessory in your hair if you desire."
-another 6 paragraph description about yes there is a registry- including details like what their favorite and preferred items on the registry are, suggesting that some people may want to go in on some of the bigger gifts together, and what they intend to use their monetary gifts for (renovating their home)
People like this have to be joking! It's so embarrassing they actually sent this out to people... figured some of you etiquette people would find this insane like I did! And hopefully it will prevent some other new brides from ever making a wedding website like this!
