I spend every day at work making web apps so when it came down to making a site for my upcoming wedding I wanted something simple. I decided to forego using any frameworks or even using a database and instead make a single page - static site. Check it out at zacharyandseyoung.com.
The goal of the design was convey all the information that our guests would need - date, place, directions etc. Additionally though I wanted to make sure that once guests traveled here they would have a great list of things to do that didn’t involve the wedding and which would hopefully give them an appreciation for the city that we love and call home.
I also wanted something that would look good on either a PC, tablet or phone.
The site itself is just html/css/js using bootstrap for its basic grid system and mobile friendly responsiveness with some custom styling.
It uses some additional js that wasn’t included in stock bootstrap like fitvid.js for video resizing and sticky.js for the navigation but over all I was able to accomplish what I wanted much faster than without it.
The RSVP form is just a simple wufoo form that emails us when someone registers.
