  • Re: Wedding Website

    Wow.  Just want to reiterate that I posted the link to my site to help Knottie1444428745 (thank you for your kind words, by the way) with the formatting of hers.  Never asked for anyone's feedback/critique.  To address some of your concerns:

    Yes, holyguacamole79.  I sent my draft site link to my brother and sister-in-law (also my best friend and MOH) before I made it public.  Not only were they both fine with their names and the names of their children (my flower girl and ring bearer) being on my site, they were honored to be mentioned.  I appreciate your concern for their privacy, but I literally listed nothing but their names- no pictures, addresses, social security #s, etc.  I guarantee every single person on this thread has their name publicly listed on the internet in some capacity.  A name is not private, sensitive information without anything attached to it, so I don't see an issue there.  By the way, I don’t expect anyone to show up to my ceremony in black tie attire; the suggested dress code is in reference to the reception.

    To everyone else who chose to focus on my etiquette shortcomings rather than offer your expertise to Knottie1444428745 on the OP- I find it really sad that the etiquette of my wedding was judged based solely on the information posted on my web site.  The fact is, no one here knows the circumstances of my wedding.  None of you know who is on my guest list.  None of you have any contextual facts about my wedding other than the start time for the ceremony/reception and suggested dress code.  I would welcome a critique of my site—had it been solicited.  However, I want to (again) point out that I never posted a link to my site and said ‘Hey guys! Take a look- would love your opinion!’  I appreciate everyone’s overwhelming need to save me from making an etiquette snafu; however, I am a little concerned with the people’s understanding of etiquette/manners when such judgmental words-- with little constructive context and no tact-- are so freely shared.  There is a major difference between giving honest, sound advice and just being flat-out rude.

    Oh my. Please remember that this is a public forum and anyone can see your information. All that link has done is allow me to see the various etiquette mistakes you have going on at your wedding. 

    Thanks @justie- obviously, I realize it's a public forum.  I have no sensitive personal information on my site and nothing to hide.  Don't care who sees it.  And I didn't ask for your opinion on it, so no need to comment on all the 'etiquette mistakes' I'm going to have at my wedding.
