I remember seeing a few Bees create newsletters for their bridesmaids, and I loved the idea! My bridesmaids are scattered all throughout the country — three live in Atlanta, one in Texas and the other three are here in New York, including my sister who is the MOH. Since most of my BM’s would not be able to search for dresses with me, I knew I wanted to inform them of all wedding updates via some form of newsletter/website.
I found Wix.com, which is a free flash program. I used Wix because their options were very design oriented. For example, I loved the post-it options. You simply enter the Wix Editor and design away! You don’t even need a domain name (although you have the option of redirecting your Wix page to your domain). It was a fairly painless process, although I did get frustrated many times because all of their tools were new to me. However, after a day of playing with the program, I created a cute and simple 4 page website for my maids to introduce them to what BM dresses I had chosen.
Here are a few screen shots:
The heart glasses on the bottom right glow when you roll over the image; when clicked it leads you to the next page.
I inserted a slideshow on one page where I displayed the dresses and model numbers.
The final page was all the paperwork (prices, ordering, measuring info, etc.)… thus the crumbled paper
