Trend: Brides And Grooms Tell All Online

Gone are the days of sending doves or hand written notes announcing your engagement and alive are the days of broadcasting your proposal, nuptials and honeymoon online for the whole world wide web to fawn over.

We didn't do a wedding website, but a couple friends did. Both websites are crazy. Photos, stories, pictures of the wedding site along with the directions, discussion threads for people who want to share hotel rooms. It's crazy.
