hello wedding - website one, two, three:

July 14, 2010

Photobucket
i finally got our wedding website designed! i ended up with 6 different layouts, haha. i just couldn't decide. but we finally picked our top 3. what do you think? you know i love designing with scanned elements and textures. the design elements from puglypixel are so helpful too! (they're free! download some for yourself!)

the beautiful calligraphy titles are written by the sweetest ever katy from kisforcalligraphy: whom ive been fortunate to meet at renegade and will see her again in a couple weeks in sf! (visit her shop, flickr, twitter, and blog!)

anyway, here are the layouts!
help me decide?
Photobucket
one.

Photobucket
two.

Photobucket
three.

so what do you think: one, two, or three? or none! ;)
xo.

251 hello's:

  1. #1 is hands down my favourite.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Such a tough choice--they're all beautiful! But I think I like #3 the best. I love the handmade feel of how the navigation buttons are! Great job on them all, Danni!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I love #1. Seems more your style.

    ReplyDelete
  4. #3, for sure. I love the arrangement of the elements at the top, and the way you did the menu bar with the yellow behind the words. LOVELY!

    ReplyDelete
  5. #1 is definitely my fave!

    ReplyDelete
  6. You really did a great job on all three! My fave is #3.

    ReplyDelete
  7. i like #2 the best, i love the yellow boxes and the gorgeous flowers & cursive script at the top right. but i also love the top middle pictures from #3 with y'alls feet...so i might move those pics up to #2!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I love love love these designs but my absolute favorite is #2! Congratulations!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. oh how pretty these are. :) Hard to choose, but I vote for number three, two, one. :) Supercute. Have fun planning the wedding! :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Number THREE most defiantly, but I will say I like the simplicity of the navigation buttons on the first two better. Good Luck! Your site is such a joy to read everyday.

    ReplyDelete
  11. #2 really grabs my eye. The elements seem to go together better than the other two.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh i love the #1 and #3!! It's hard to choose because they are all beautiful!!
    xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  13. Beautiful!!! So hard to decide!!! #2 and #3 both really are my favs. <333

    ReplyDelete
  14. No. 3 is my favorite, but they're all lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Cute. Very vintage... I like 3 the most.

    ReplyDelete
  16. those are all awesome...I think that my favorite is #3. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love the yellow of the second one but the photo of the third one.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh my gosh, seriously. I am no help, because I love them all! Of course, I am a font freak, so I love all of the fonts too. So I'm afraid I cannot be of any help. Sorry! :)

    But at least you know that they're all pretty!?

    ReplyDelete
  19. hmm... i think you prefer 1 & 2 more as they are similar to each other. So in that case I would say two. your photo stands out better in the green border.

    ReplyDelete
  20. #2 for me!tough choice, coz i really like the two smaller pictures in #3!

    ReplyDelete
  21. the first one is the best i think. it's soooo you!! love it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I vote for #3. I like all the hand written tabs and extra photos in the collage at the top.

    ReplyDelete
  23. i love #3, but they are all lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  24. #3... the header is balanced perfectly!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I vote for #3!
    I like the header and the buttons there are original and keep your page interesting all the way through!

    Congratulations!

    ReplyDelete
  26. they're all fabulous (of course), but my favorite is #3!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love them all! Number 3 sticks out to me more then the others :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love all of them, but #3 is my favorite, then #1! You are so talented!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love all of them, but #3 is my favorite, then #1! You are so talented!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. they're all lovely (:

    I'd say #1 or #3 (:

    ReplyDelete
  31. Well, it was between #1 and #3, but I think tres is where it's at. But all are incredibly lovely. You are one gifted girl and that Jonathan is lucky!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. #2!

    They are all lovely though.

    ReplyDelete
  33. They all look great, but #2 is my favorite. The yellow really pops.

    ReplyDelete
  34. They all look great, but #2 is my favorite. The yellow really pops.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like 2! The orange and blues of the little frame really make the page pop.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love them all, but ONE is my favorite. Just love the bike :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. these are all great but I have to say #3 is my fav

    ReplyDelete
  38. omg! what a hard decision! torturous!!!!!!!!!!!! i am the worst at making decisions but if i make my decision just based on the feeling i got when i looked at each one, i'd vote for #3... there's something about that flower thingy that i love... it's beautiful!!!! awesome job!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Number 1 or 3 for me. Love your eye for design! Best wishes!


    Fan,
    Claud :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. They're all good but I like number 1 the best!!! :) speaking of weddings, I just posted some bouquets i made..check it out when you get a minute..thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  41. you can't go wrong with either design, but i absolutely adore #3!! you are sooo creative danni!! i love the use of the yellow as the menu bars and the banner the best with those cute engagement pictures!!! ahhh it's coming up soo soon, soo exciting! :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. number 2 is my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  43. i love number two. the pop of blue and yellow is perfection.

    ReplyDelete
  44. all three are so beautiful!
    but I adore #3!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love #2! Has enough detail to entertain the eye but isn't overwhelming! :) All are beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  46. All of them are lovely!

    My favorite is #3.

    ReplyDelete
  47. my goodness, Danni. all 3 are equally gorgeous -- this is really tough! let's see... the first one -- i'd go with the first. :D

    anyhow, love the color scheme you chose and how you incorporated all the elements together so cohesively. beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm really drawn to the third. I love the pops of color.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Reasons I think you should pick #2:

    ~I like the boldness of the calligraphy on top.
    ~The brighter tones add warmth and cheer to the page.
    ~The colors better complement your photos and let your blue skirt pop, instead of matching other design elements to that blue.

    That's my two cents!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh wow this is a tough choice! I think I like #1 best though. It's the simplest, and has such a nice clean layout. The other two are more chaotic and scrabook-y looking. I think for a wedding, you'd want to keep that minimalistic feel.

    ReplyDelete
  51. i agree, they're all beautiful! my fave is #3!

    ReplyDelete
  52. i agree, they're all beautiful! my fave is #3!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love the header for #3!! But I like the yellow of #2. Combine!! :)
    (I'm so excited!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. all of them are cute and fantastic, but I also choose number 3! congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I vote for #1, but would you consider not putting such a big "view our registries" link? Maybe I'm just hyper-sensitive because I do invitations where the mantra is "don't mention the registry". I like having the little link at the top, though!

    ReplyDelete
  56. love #1 because of the sweet little bike :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. # 1
    - 3 is nice but too busy

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm partial to #3, but it looks like each one is a favorite here, so you can't go wrong.

    Congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  59. #3 -- most appealing to my eye.

    ReplyDelete
  60. <3 ALL 3! ... that doesn't help you much, but they all look UH-mazing!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I like number one the bets. :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Ah! They're all beautiful! But if I had to choose only one... I'd say #3. But then again, I like them all. What if you could make it switch layouts every few clicks/days/etc.?

    ReplyDelete
  63. LOVE them all!! This is going to be the best wedding website EVER!! Can't choose but #1 and #3 are my favs!

    ReplyDelete
  64. This is terribly un-helpful, but I'm completely torn between 1 and 2! They're both just gorgeous, of course!

    - Lindsay

    ReplyDelete
  65. Aw, they all look beautiful! I'm putting in my vote for 1 or 3.

    ReplyDelete
  66. #1 and #3 are both lovely! You did such a great job!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I can't decide between #1 and #2! Nevertheless, I wish you much happiness Danni!

    ReplyDelete
  68. They're all gorgeous! But I prefer the number one!

    ReplyDelete
  69. #2 is my favorite. It just pops.

    ReplyDelete
  70. They are all lovely. I really love #1 the best :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hi Danni,

    Number three is my favorite. I love the color choices and the banner layout.

    Kristen

    ReplyDelete
  72. All are nice but I love 3!

    ReplyDelete
  73. they all look beautiful! but I think #3 is my favorite - although honestly can't go wrong with any. congrats :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. 3 3 3!!
    i love that there are more photos on that one. =)

    ReplyDelete
  75. I like #1 with #3's menu bar design. If they were combined, I think it would be beautiful. But definitely #1.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Absolutely beautiful! They reflect your style too which is awesome. I love all of them but I like the way your eye is drawn to the picture of you two in #1 and #3.
    So exciting!

    ReplyDelete
  77. number one is my lear favourite. They are so lovely- if I I got an invite that led me to any of these sites I would be sooo exited about the wedding!!! Good luck with all your planning. Anna x

    ReplyDelete
  78. Yes.. it's a hard decision! I like #3 the best!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I would say the first one because the bike at the top is nice.

    ReplyDelete
  80. they're all beautiful, but my vote goes to number three. it has that extra punch of color and will surely get everyone excited for the big day!

    ReplyDelete
  81. They are all lovely....
    but I ♥ #3.

    ReplyDelete
  82. #1, I like the vintage look.

    ReplyDelete
  83. They are all beautiful! I love the navigation on website 3 and I like the background texture on website 1. But if I had to choose just one, I'd choose number three.

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  84. ~ ONE ~
    The bike is the clincher! I noticed the other versions had a picture at the top (right side) - could a small picture of the wedding couple be added? maybe they could be standing near a bike rack in the middle of nowhere??

    ReplyDelete
  85. i love 1 + 3 -- what a great site. xo!

    ReplyDelete
  86. looks like you've already got a lot of feedback, but i love number one!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I keep coming back to no. 1 - so awesome! I love the bicycle and that the only photo is the main one.

    ReplyDelete

  89. I think that #1 would fit you well. But since it's for your wedding, I love #3 because it's your style, with a little twist & there's more pictures of you & the love of your life, Nick! :D

    ReplyDelete
  90. They are all lovely but #2 is my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  91. #1 - it's simple and easy to look at, as well as being gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I like the background from number one, the main box and menu buttons from number two and the header from number 3 (for a totally different look!)

    ReplyDelete
  93. All three of them are perfect! How do you decide? I say you just draw the winning number out of a hat :)

    ReplyDelete
  94. # 3 looks so fresh, romantic and lovely! Hard decision though as they are all so pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  95. ohmygosh. these are ALL beautiful. i am so impressed.

    i love #2 the most. the flowers are so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  96. #3 is the most beautiful, although they all rock! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  97. All of them are beautiful but my fav one is #3 =)

    ReplyDelete
  98. I love them all, but my favorite is #3.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I'm loving #1...I think the background is just enough texture without being too distracting.

    ReplyDelete
  100. question... what font is "our september 25th"? it's super cute!

    ReplyDelete
  101. #2 is my favorite. i really like the blue framing the photo.

    ReplyDelete
  102. All of them are lovely, of course! But I think #2 is ballanced the best with the content underneath.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I like #3 the best! #1 is beautiful, but it reminds me a little too much of D*Sponge's background

    ReplyDelete
  104. I love all of them, but I think #3 because it has the extra pictures of you two.

    ReplyDelete
  105. i like version 2, i like that pop of yellow/green that you've got going on. plus it's more personal with the picture in the header and all...

    but they're all pretty. :)

    ReplyDelete
  106. I like #1 (because it has no border around the main text) and #3

    ReplyDelete
  107. Where did you make your website at? Im looking to make my own wedding website and have no idea where to start! hah I choose number 3!

    ReplyDelete
  108. #2! So pretty, fresh, fun and pleasing to my eyes! :)

    ReplyDelete
  109. 1! It suits the style of the engagement photos SO well and it looks just different enough from this site to be perfect ;) I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I love #1!!! What about replacing the bicycle with a tandem???

    ReplyDelete
  111. My favorite is #3! I love the taller floral graphic at the top and the two small shots of you as well.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Three those photographs are too beautiful not to feature! G

    ReplyDelete
  113. well, I like two and three, but coming from a person who has changed her site more time than she has had hot diners, I could change my mind again. :)

    ReplyDelete
  114. 3!
    I love the little details.
    They are all beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  115. all of them are beautiful, but i think i like #2 best. good luck deciding :)

    xoxo,
    lesley

    ReplyDelete
  116. I was going to say #2 but then I looked closer at #3 and now I can't decide! Hmmm... I guess I'll go with #3! :)

    ReplyDelete
  117. #3. But all of them are great!

    ReplyDelete
  118. They're all wonderful, but the vote goes to #1.

    ReplyDelete
  119. i like #2 i think it suits you more!!

    Can;t wait to see it all unfold!

    Megan

    ReplyDelete
  120. I realize I don't know you, but no. 1 reminds me most of your blog and the photo collections you've posted (including your engagement photos). So from a total stranger, website no. 1 is totally you =)

    ReplyDelete
  121. Oh, I love No. 2. Though they are all very lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  122. I like the layout from #2 and the banner from #3.
    thanks for sharing Danni! Hope you decide on a layout and congrats on your upcoming wedding!!!<3333333333333

    ReplyDelete
  123. There all gorgeous, but for some reason I'm drawn to #3

    ReplyDelete
  124. #2. Love how the layered graphics and text are a little off-balanced and not so symmetrical.

    But I don't think you will have a winner from your blog readers. Looks like every layout is getting equal votes! That's how good they are. You're genius.

    ReplyDelete
  125. They're all adorable, but I like 1 best. :)

    ReplyDelete
  126. Just found your blog.. I like #3 the best!

    ReplyDelete
  127. 2! definitely. but it all depends on what fits you best. which one do you look at and it brings the most emotion?

    ReplyDelete
  128. I love them all, but I think number 1 is one for a reason..it completely suites you guys! My vote = #1

    ReplyDelete
  129. #3! I was so drawn to #1 because of the bicycle, so perhaps you can incorporate it into the 3rd layout? I do love how you used the tape designs for your navigation bar. Cute!

    ReplyDelete
  130. They are all gorgeous but I think maybe #1 :) I hope you can decide.

    ReplyDelete
  131. #1 is the best, it's so simple and elegant, and it focuses on your wedding more, the design elements in the other two seems to have taken over the actual wedding I think.

    ReplyDelete
  132. one! sept. 25th is my mom's bday :)

    ReplyDelete
  133. they're all beautiful - but no.3 is my favourite. everything just sits together really well. good luck deciding :) x

    ReplyDelete
  134. one(!) i love.

    ReplyDelete
  135. It probably doesn't help, but I say one or three :)

    ReplyDelete
  136. For some reason, number one seems the most like you to me. With that said, I don't actually KNOW you, but I feel like I know you in the blog-o-sphere way :) No matter what, they are all so lovely! I can't wait to hear more about your wedding plans!

    ReplyDelete
  137. This might not be too helpful...but, I like the extra photos of you on # 3 - I like the unstructured layout of # 1 - and I like the flowers on #2...Now put those all together and presto! :) You do beautiful work - they are all wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  138. one! :) I love these, they are gorgeous!!!

    ReplyDelete
  139. I vote # 3 but take out the heavy yellow rectangle at the very top. Congratulations!!

    ReplyDelete
  140. i love puglypixel! Katrina always has amazing free downloads!

    ReplyDelete
  141. two! i love how the date really pops out on the left side and how everything just come together. i love the other two too, but they just dont catch my eyes as much as the second one.

    ReplyDelete
  142. i would have to vote three because of the bright banner at the top and the lovely yellow menu/tab items which really catch your eye.

    ReplyDelete
  143. i love three! i think the scrapbook theme and handmade feel is just what you're looking for.

    ReplyDelete
  144. NUMBER 1: ELEGANT, SERENE, WHILE STILL BEING UNIQUELY YOU.

    ReplyDelete
  145. i vote for #3! i love that there are engagement pics in the header. gorgeous! :D

    ReplyDelete
  146. I like #1 the best, though they all look great.
