{wedding} Wedding Website

There are only 23 days to go until the BIG DAY!
How do I know this?

Have I made a worm to count down the days?
No, there's no time for making worms silly!

Have I just counted out all the sleeps now on my fingers?
No, obviously not - I don't have enough fingers for that!

Have I been counting back the days in my head every day since 365 days ago?
Don't be daft! I'm not that much of a moron!

I made a lovely little wedding website which counts down the days for me.

Which, in the beginning - was very awesome - 
"Wow! Yay! One Hundred Days to go until we are married!"

Now it's more like:

"WHAT!?! 23 days until we are married?!?!

Here is our wedding website for you to have a look at - 
If anyone is interested :)

Originally I was never going to do a wedding website - I figured we have so much paper save the dates and invites (to be revealed soon!) flying around that it was a bit redundant, but then the wedding fever hit me and I was all like "HOLLER YEAH WE GOTTA HAVE A WEDDING WEBSITE!!". It was a nice place to put information other than what was on the invitations - snippets about our bridal party, things to do in the area for our international guests and a bit about our epic love story.

(It was created off the site {free} which has loads of really cool and helpful tools. If you start entering your guests on the site from the beginning - it can be handy as it calculates which percentage of guests are local/out-of town/international (which also helps determine a more accurate final number for you - I think it actually gives you a percentage value. It can also show you the percentage of his vs her guests and you can use it to invite people to different wedding events. You can break guests down into different tiers ie "parents // bridal party // close friends // friends// work colleagues// acquaintances" etc - which really helps with inviting and number juggling. It also stores email and postal addresses.) I started doing our wedding lists on paper (obvs) so by the time I discovered this site - it would have been double the work to go back and add everyone in. But it would have been handy to have all the guests entered online - it has some great tools for seating planning and keeping track of your RSVP lists once all your guests have been entered.) If you don't like excel (and your fiance isn't an excel guru) then this would be a good option.
