I want to make a wedding blog. I'll be getting married next summer and I want to document the build-up and the big day of course. Has anyone seen this done before? Anyone know a good place to start?

Okay I thought maybe I should be a bit more clear! It was first thread and no one replied  :'( So my soon to be hubby and I are getting married next year. We're both Canadians who emigrated to NZ about five years ago. We came here to visit and just absolutely fell in love with the place, it happens! It's to beautiful here and everyone is so friendly - I mean, Canadians are friendly too, that's probably why I like it so much. But the downside is obviously we're really far away from our family. I've got a BIG family and I know they want to be with me during this time. I think my friends and sisters are all sad that they can't partake in the excitement. I have a lot of friends here though, some of whom are even old friends of mine from way back so it's not like I don't have anyone - it's a great support network. But I want to create a blog that everyone can keep updated through. I don't want to put it all up on Facebook for everyone to see becuase I'm sure there will be a few tears (I mean, there already has been). I just thought it would be a great way for everyone to experience the build up to my wedding so that they don't feel like they're missing out. I will probably even go to Canada at some point to pick out my dress with my mom and sisters as I know she wants us to do that together. So if anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it! Thanks! xx

Hi,

I'd recommend using Tumblr, it's free and so easy to use. There's also heaps of wedding blogs you could follow, their posts will appear on your Tumblr dashboard, like your newsfeed on Facebook :)

I love:
bride2be.tumblr.com
bridalsnob.tumblr.com
everlytrue.tumblr.com
tumblr.weddinginspirasi.com
hallelujahweddings.tumblr.com

Thanks very much! I think Tumblr might be a good option for me. I've been looking at a few different things like Evernote or WordPress, or maybe a Web app, my dad said I should just make a website with these guys http://www.1and1.com/web-apps

Hi,

Congratulations for your upcoming wedding.

Definitely wordpress ( https://wordpress.org/ ) is perfect platform for your blogging. You also can purchase a web hosting with custom domain yournameandhisname.co.nz or .com and install wordpress as the platform. Wordpress have a great plugin that also can enhance your wedding blog like countdown timer, guest book, photo gallery etc.

Hopefully that helps.

Hi there istheone

I would have to agree with David and use Wordpress.   As well as being a wedding photographer , most of my work these days is in broader digitial media stuff.  Wordpress was designed with blogging and easy of use in mind.  There are plenty of free wedding themes available.

All the best.

Luke
