Just Said Yes August 2014

What do people usually write in their about us section of their wedding website?

julie, on October 9, 2013 at 12:23 AM Posted in Planning 0 16

Doed anybody have any suggestions on what kind of info to put in that part of the website. We started to write about how we started dating, moved to another state together, and ultimately got engaged. It just started to sound like a corny love story in third person. Is it supposed to sound corny and we are just over thinking it? Is that what people want to read about that will be attending the wedding ? what did you guys write? suggestions needed.

Thanks in advance

    It's not a requirement to have all the parts that come default with the site creator. We chose to leave that section out.

    I'm sure it just sounds corny because you guys lived it, your guests will probably find it sweet. It'd be there for those who want to read it to do so, but if guests don't wanna bother then they can just skip that tab.

    Put what makes you both comfortable. Maybe a summary of your relationship, with a few well chosen sweet/funny/fond memories thrown in at different points?

    Yeah, you don't have to write an about us. My friend just had a "why he/she loves her/him" and they had a section of each of their views on the future. You don't have to be overly cheesy with your about me if you did go that way. Or don't do anything at all.

    Nothing. If they don't know us they shouldn't be on our website.

    I didn't have an about us. We're inviting people who should already know who we are. Well... Minus my parents 50+ friends but I don't care for them to get to know me.

    I tried to keep it short and sweet since most people should already know most of what i put. Mainly how we met and a few things in between. Maybe some funny facts or things ppl may not know about you both. I split it onto 3 sections, the story, the proposal, and the honeymoon.

    Here's ours

    This why I am not doing one. I don't want it to be corny. And everyone already knows us anyway, so why do I need to tell our story all over again? And I am thinking most people won't even bother to look at our website anyway.
