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.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Wedding Web sites, or "Wed sites," were initially created as a way brides and grooms to be to notify guests of wedding dates, plans and gift registries. Today, the sites are far more personal, offering stories, videos, photos and even up to the big moment journal entries.

I've been talking about wedding websites for months (I even offered a tutorial for making one), but I have always thought of the more traditional sites with simple announcements, directions and registry information. Boy are those passé. If you're not turned off by the idea of proposing via a widget or commercial, consider what you'd feel like if you had a website with videos of your proposal, planning and wedding ceremony. According to the Wall Street Journal, more than 1,800 marriage proposals are on YouTube, which has to mean most people not only love the idea of the web publicity, but they plan on putting the video on a website.

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.
