Slate just wrote a snarky article on wedding websites. While they are easy to hate (baby pictures, over the top romance stories, pictures documenting the couple's entire relationship), they are practical. If you have a wedding website, it is a great place to list all of those important details like the ceremony and reception location, start time, parking, and hotel blocks. I don't know how many times I was asked the same question over and over again.
Do you think the cheese factor ruins the value of wedding websites?
That said, I don't value Slate's opinion on weddings too much. This is the same website that said it was ok to print registry information on the invitation.
