    Meg, I love the new site! Congratulations!

  • I’m an Italian practical bride-to-be and I’ve been silently following your great blog for months, but now I feel I must comment to tell you I love how the new site looks! Brava Meg!

  • caitlin

    It already feels like home. The kind of home where you kick off your shoes, hug somebody, put on your comfy clothes and curl up with a good book.

    (I am also totally in love with the font of the post headers. It’s fabulous!)

    I must say, at first I missed the frazzled-looking brides from the top of the old page… but then I delved into the comments, and there they were!

    • meg

      Of course you got a happy bride for that comment ;)

  • I totally love it. It is everything you said it would be. and I love the reclaiming wife spot too! although I am a little sad that I am no longer on your blog roll, but I know you can’t have just everyone…

    • meg

      It’s a work in progress…

  • oh, it looks wonderful! I’m a long-time reader, delurking to say THANK YOU for your dedication to keeping the wedding world REAL…and pretty!

    Meg, the new site is fantastic! I’ve been a follower for a while now, but it’s wonderful to be able to flip through the old stuff so easily. It could cause problems for my schoolwork… but who doesn’t benefit from a bit of procrastination?

  • Nina

    Loving the organization! I have been reading since last fall and though I went back and read a lot of the old posts, there were so many good ones I’d missed that I am now really enjoying.

    And of course, the site is absolutely beautiful! The main banner could not be more perfect.

  • Nikki

    Loooove it!

  • harmke

    I absolutely love it. the banners are soooo fantastic! and a seperate reclaiming wife part! and the roll-down thingies! so organized yet so pretty!
    the only thing is the font of the posts. I guess I just have to get used to that. like a new couch, just have to sit/lie/make love on it very often ;)

    • meg

      Wait. The fonts on the post are the SAME. It’s Times New Roman. I’m confused.

      • I’m sure it’s just her browser. It may be defaulting to something else…

  • LOVE it meg. the site fits just right, and is sooo pretty! and the TAGLINE! the tagline is brilliant. amen.

    • meg

      One of you wrote it… in a comment once.

  • Alice

    The new site makes me want to cry (in a good way). It’s beautiful and worth waiting for. Congratulations! And Thank You!!!

  • Loving the new site, congrats! Thank you for all your hard work!!

  • Alyssa

    OMG! I just replied to someone’s comment and it was the best thing ever! SO in love and SO proud of you Meg!!!!

  • Brendarling

    Great job Meg! It is brilliant!
    I have been waiting for what the new design would be, since you first announced the re-design and it is wonderful.
    I am especially in love with the colors and the reorganization of content in the drop down menues – so easy to find stuff now!

  • Yay! It’s so pretty and easily maneuverable! i’m so proud of you, Meg! I’ve now been reading this site since I got engaged last May, and I’m getting married at the end of May. Thanks for helping to keep me sane over the last year. xo, Giovanna

  • Susanna

    Now all we need is an iPhone app. :) :) :)

  • totally digging the new site… it looks amazing.

  • Julianna

    love the new format & the ability to reply directly to a specific comment. also wondering, is there a way to somehow view “new” comments from the last time I read through? before, it was all chronological so I could just scroll down, but now that people can reply to a comment on a comment on a comment I’m finding it harder to figure out. not a big deal, just curious if there’s a better way! thanks again.

  • Erin

    so excited about the new design, i’ve been waiting with bated breath to see how it would turn out and it’s gorgeous! but i thought i should mention one thing: i don’t know if anyone else is having this trouble, but the font is really broken up on my screen. it’s surprisingly hard to read. sorry if it’s just me, but i thought you’d want to know. =) otherwise it’s really pretty!

  • Nichole

    Yay! It’s so pretty! LOVE it. Congratulations :)

  • This is so fantastic, easy to navigate and beautiful. I really love it. My favorite part about the re-design is the handwritten touch, which just seems like a perfect fit for this place you have built online. I’m excited for you.
