Congrats on your 21st-century wedding! Living in the modern age requires modern solutions, and your wedding preparation is part of that as well. Getting married in 2020 is not just about scouting and compiling your registry or finding the perfect venue. The planning process is a long one, and it will be so much better with a wedding website.
One Digital Hub for All the Important Details
Think of your wedding website as the hub where you can share wedding logistics, guest accommodations, engagement photos, and your registry. Making your website personal is essential, but making sure it’s fun and informative is also essential.
Here’s how you can do that.
Choosing the Design
Nowadays, you don’t have to be a designer nor a computer genius to build a decent looking website. There are plenty of platforms, such as Wix and Squarespace, that offer numerous pre-designed themes that you can easily customize. The skills needed? Drag and drop elements with your mouse and a bit of creativity. So, choose wisely, explore the Internet, and don’t settle for the first one you see. There are plenty!
Sync a Photo Sharing App
You may be busy soaking up your wedding weekend, but your friends and family will be taking pictures and videos from the start of the rehearsal dinner until they see you off at the end of the reception. Using a photo-sharing app is a great idea as all the photos can be compiled into one digital location, even in real-time.
Be Inventive With Your Love Story
Now, let’s go back to being personal. After all, this is your wedding. It’ll be the digital place where not just your friends but also you can come back to and remember. Make sure you work on your story and find a great location on your website to publish it. In other words, your wedding website should be easy to use, attractive, and personal. Here are some additional tips that you should consider:
- Create your personal hashtags and reshare social media posts on your website
- Share your registry online
- You can link your registry to charity
- Find a place for a virtual guest book
- Have your wedding party create their bios
- Don’t be afraid to post Google Forms, asking for song preferences, and others.
40+ Hilarious Times Pregnancy Wasn’t a Walk in the Park
Pregnancy is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful experiences. However, what we don’t seem to consider most often is the battle of hormones and the baby brain the mother has to go through in these nine months. We bring you a number of hilarious stories shared by expecting moms on social media.
Morning Sickness Is Real
Morning sickness during pregnancy is one of the most irritating things. This poor guy shares that his wife wakes up every morning and asks him to turn around as his breath makes her feel sick. We’re not sure who we feel more sorry for.
The One With the Panic
Pregnancy is equally overwhelming for both a mother and a father. Sharing the experience together brings them close. The woman shares her special story with her husband during their first child. Apparently, they did an online birthing class through their hospital. These classes usually include showing birthing videos.
Halfway through the class, her husband became so flustered and overwhelmed that he needed his inhaler. This is completely normal yet hysterical. Is that how Leonard from Big Bang Theory would have felt if Penny were expecting? We can only assume.
Happy Mom With Happy Pups
We love how husbands are super supportive during the pregnancy. This woman shared her story with her husband when they were expecting their first child. Her husband used to crack her up with silly questions during pregnancy.
He thought they should have the baby on a Monday so they can “have it figured out by the weekend.” There was nothing she could do to make him understand that it did not matter. So, dealing with a big baby husband during pregnancy is quite a challenge as well.
Surprising your partners is the best way to show them your love. However, if your partner is pregnant, you might want to reconsider. This woman shares that her husband thought it would be funny to come up behind her to surprise and tickle her while she was brushing her teeth.
When he did, she screamed, choked on the toothpaste, and peed herself like a frightened chihuahua. We are sure it is needless to say he regretted his actions. Apparently, he had to clean up the entire bathroom after that— poor thing.
The Smart One
So, if you’re a smart guy, you’ll never ever get into an argument with your pregnant partner. This is a precaution you must take for your safety. This guy is a genius. We’re sure he’s completely clueless as to what he did to upset his pregnant wife.
However, he’s afraid of the wrath and so, he took measures to calm the situation. He got his wife a chocolate cake decorated with a sweet note. This is how you stay on the safe side, guys.
Stains That Stay Behind
Pregnancy is a complicated phase of a person’s life. Women experience all sorts of weird emotions during this time. The funniest part is, some of these emotions actually stay back post-pregnancy. This woman shares that she spilled a glass of ginger ale all over herself right before her first prenatal appointment.
Her immediate reaction to the situation was crying for five minutes and cleaning it up afterward. The hilarious part is, apparently, she has had a ginger ale aversion since that day.
The Bold Type
Do you know what is the most hilarious thing about pregnancy? The fathers are completely terrified all the time. This woman shares that, at 38 weeks pregnant, she got salty about men not having to experience female things like — periods, washing and drying super long hair, and of course, the joy of pregnancy.
She told her husband that she was leaving him and becoming a lesbian. We can only imagine the look on the poor husband’s face. We have to admit that the mood swings are absolutely crazy during pregnancy.
Demand Is an Order
Treat pregnant women like your highness. This is a piece of friendly advice we’re giving out to everyone. This woman got mad because her husband took a bite of her PB&J sandwich, which is the one thing she had been craving for a while.
Apparently, she hates PB&J sandwiches. However, since she ordered one, it was a demand that should not have been defiled in any way. We pray for the soul of this husband, who forgot the proper way to act around his baby mommy, the royal highness.
Where Is My Mind
Most expecting mothers go through an extra bit of a hard time due to the constant shift of hormones. This woman shares her story of watching a Disney movie during her pregnancy. She was laughing one second and crying the next.
This emotional wreckage is something pretty much all pregnant women can relate to. They can complain all they want, but the next moment, they’ll be telling you how amazing the experience was. Yes, they’re even confused about how they feel about pregnancy.
Double the Energy, Captain
The hormonal rush during pregnancy isn’t always about crying and screeching. It’s also about unstoppable energy. This woman is a crazy egg lover. During her pregnancy, she was passing by a store that was fully stocked with eggs.
She ran past and weaved through about 50 people to get herself the eggs. Luckily, her husband was there to save her when she got stuck in a position that she just couldn’t get out of.
The Mind Wants What it Wants
Pregnancy brain makes you do all sorts of crazy things. This woman shares that she went to the store for cat food — just to get cat food. However, she walked out with everything to make a strawberry rhubarb pie. She went home, baked it.
She ate half the pie, and that’s when she realized she still didn’t have the cat food. So, she had to go all the way back to the store. This may happen — on numerous occasions — when you’re pregnant.
Hold the Bacon
Disappointing a pregnant woman is presumably the easiest thing ever. However, what you didn’t know is how frequently they disappoint themselves. This woman shares that she went to the shop to get things to make a simple bacon sandwich.
When she got home, she was pretty proud of herself for getting everything she needed. She switched the oven, and realized she had forgotten the bacon. She broke down on the floor, crying hysterically. We can only imagine how terrible she felt crying over bacon.
When you have a pregnant partner in the house, you need to be a bit careful. You cannot simply leave them alone, especially with food. This guy shares that he bought a two-pound chocolate cake in the morning and brought it home before heading to the office.
When he came back home, he discovered that the entire cake was gone and the counter, covered in crumbs. He definitely should not have left his pregnant wife alone with a two-pound chocolate cake. Seriously, dude, what did you expect?
Best Friends Forever
Pregnant wives just know the ways to make their husbands’ lives a teensy bit difficult during the pregnancy. Most husbands end up tiptoeing around the wifey. This woman shared that, when she was pregnant, she asked her husband if he ever watched Charmed.
When he said no, she immediately began sobbing — exclaiming that they had absolutely nothing in common and that they would never make it as a couple. Gosh! That must have been quite a trauma for the poor husband here. Apparently, they’re still BFFs.
What Is This Way?
Sharing the right information with the right person is important, but delivering the information the right way is crucial. This woman shares that she went to the doctor because she thought she had the flu.
The doctor ran some tests and returned to tell her that she had six months. That’s not something you want to hear a doctor say. Clearly shaken up, the doctor corrected themselves, saying that she was six months along in her pregnancy.
The Kind People of the World
Like we mentioned before, pregnancy is a sensitive time. It shows women how small things make great impacts. This woman shares how she went on a trip with her husband while she was pregnant.
On the airplane, the pilot greeted the passengers in both Korean and English, and she ended up crying just because she thought it was so touching. She was overwhelmed as the pilot wanted everyone on the plane to feel accepted and safe — what a sweet, little heart she has.
The Helper in All
As you get further along in your pregnancy, it can become challenging to perform mundane tasks that are normally no issue. This can be a major buzzkill. Asking someone to do things for you can be quite irritating. However, if you have a sweet husband like this one, you probably won’t have to worry much.
This woman shares that her husband paints her toenails for her because she can no longer reach her toes. We really hope this guy gets all the shades and colors right; she most probably can’t see her toes.
Baby Brain Effect
It’s no secret, especially after getting to this point in the list, that pregnant mommies experience a rollercoaster of emotions. This woman turned up at a midwife appointment and sat in the waiting room. As the clock ticked and the scheduled time for her appointment went by, she became frustrated and demanded to know what was going on.
The receptionist humbly apologized and told her that she was a month early for her appointment. Needless to say, she was very embarrassed. Well, she can always blame it on the baby brain!
The Narrow Tunnels
Managing a toddler during pregnancy can be a huge challenge. This woman was expecting twins. One day, she had taken her tot to McDonald’s.
The baby climbed to the very top of the playground and promptly freaked out. Mama bear managed to climb up and retrieve her child but quickly realized that she herself wouldn’t be able to make it down. Luckily, a kind dad came to the rescue.
The Heavyweight Champion
When you’re pregnant, you’re bound to put on some weight. After all, you are eating for two! This is something almost no one can control. This woman shared that, when she was pregnant with her first baby, she sat on her grandmother’s bed and broke it.
We’re talking about a bed that almost 100 people must have sat on over the years, but she was the only one to break the masterpiece. Grandma is not bringing a Christmas gift this year, we’re sure.
The Shameless Donut War
When you’re pregnant, it can be hard to control certain cravings — and we’re sure this woman would agree. When she was pregnant with her first child, she went to a Krispy Kreme shop with her husband.
On their way back, her husband ate one of her doughnuts. She immediately started bawling and screeching, all because she wanted to eat every single donut herself. After that kind of betrayal, it’s no wonder she hid the rest from him. Ha!
The Pregnancy Jaunt
Traveling while you’re pregnant can be somewhat of an adventure. This poor woman was in Costco when she suddenly felt sick (classic morning sickness). She ran to the nearest garbage can, which happened to be close to a lady giving out samples.
After throwing up, she realized that she was surrounded by tons of people who wanted to make sure she was okay. Well, she would have been had she not also peed in her pants. Poor thing.
Pregnant women are notorious foodies. They’ll clean out the entire fridge, pantry, the jars and tins — anything and everything. Remember, they’re utterly ruthless.
This poor guy shares his naïve moment at the breakfast table. His mouth must have been watering, thinking about those creamy fudge cookies. Well, sadly, he reached for an empty box. His wife is quite the jokester!
The Poor Pooper
A lot of people face constipation during pregnancy. That’s the worst. This poor woman shares that, during her last pregnancy, she and her husband were living with his brother. She was so constipated that she only pooped once a week — and when that day came every week, it was bad… to say the least.
It was to the point that the OP’s husband and BIL made her go out to the yard to retrieve a poop stick that she would keep in the bathroom to avoid a clogged toilet.
The Busy Bee
Again, traveling while you’re pregnant will leave you with all sorts of bizarre memories. This woman was traveling during her pregnancy and lived in communal housing where she had to share a bath. She kept waking up too late and would end up peeing before she even got to the bathroom.
So, to solve the issue, she decided to get a bunch of plastic Tupperware bowls and urinate in them. Apparently, she was able to catch more hours of sleep that way, not having to race to the bathroom four times a night. Makes sense!
The Monster in the Dark
Here’s another hilarious story of a scared husband. This woman shares that she was around 25 weeks pregnant and so, she didn’t know how to get comfortable in bed anymore. Her husband tried to help but failed.
He declared that the body pillow she was using to get snug with was no longer useful and threw it on the ground. Their dog puked on it immediately. That’s when she started hysterically laughing — whilst sobbing. Naturally, her hubby backed away slowly, feeling slightly confused and highly terrified.
Did you know that pregnant women are actually fighters? They fight their irrational hormones, even when the going gets tough. This woman shared that, when she was pregnant, her fiancé had made a baked potato for her.
Apparently, he cut it wrong. She immediately felt her eyes well up but held back her tears with each bite because she realized how silly it was.
Love for the Wildlife
We’ve said it a few times and we’ll say it again — emotions are amplified during pregnancy. You start to worry about things you hate, too! This girl ran over a snake and cried over the incident for two hours. She only thought about it with her emotions and forgot the fact that she hates snakes.
She started to think that the snake’s family, especially its babies, would be waiting for it to return home, but the snake would never show up. Her husband was shocked, which made her blood boil even more.
Pregnancy calls for all weird sorts of cravings. It’s not the same for everyone, though. While some crave pickles, others prefer the snacks in the pantry aisle.
This guy shares the grocery list his wife sent him — which includes ores, ground beef, and a “buttload of cereal.” This dude might need to get more than one carton of milk to balance out all that cereal!
Overthinking is a common occurrence during pregnancy. However, it’s hilarious when simple matters seem so serious.
This girl’s boyfriend wanted to make macaroni and cheese for her. She accused him of thinking that she was too incompetent to make it by herself. She then threw a fork at him before running upstairs to cry.
Getting comfortable in bed during pregnancy can be one of the most difficult tasks ever. You need all the room, all the pillows, all the comforters. Sometimes, it’s just too small a space for two people to sleep.
This woman shares that her poor husband sleeps on the couch because she needs the entire bed to get comfortable. The poor man tugged himself in tight, trying not to freeze. He’s a great man to have sacrificed sheer comfort.
The Real Struggle
Remember when Rachel would run back and forth to the bathroom while she was pregnant with Emma in Friends? Well, this is the reality for all pregnant women. The baby is always squeezing on the bladder.
This woman here shares that, during her last pregnancy, she had a super weak bladder. So, in a public washroom, someone walked in on her, head in the toilet, with a puddle of pee underneath. These surely are the lowest points of pregnancy that people have to go through.
Don’t Cry Over Spilt Milk
Husbands get to witness the most hilarious moments of pregnancy. This woman shares a time during her pregnancy in which she woke up starving in the middle of the night and was excited to eat Lucky Charms — until she discovered there was no milk.
So, she sat on the kitchen floor and sobbed while clutching a bowl of dry cereal. Fortunately, her husband found her in that position and decided to save her.
Bread and Bread
Pregnancy brain can drive women crazy. They tend to forget and misinterpret things that they always understood before. This guy shares his sad story on Twitter. His pregnant wife was packing him a sandwich for lunch.
When he got to the office, he took his lunch out just to find two plain pieces of bread. His wife forgot to put some sort of filling on the sandwich. The poor gal tried…
Cravings can get pretty weird when you’re pregnant. During her third trimester, this woman made a really good turkey, bacon, ranch sandwich on a croissant.
It was mouth-watering good. When she got down to the last bite, the sandwich fell out of her hand and spilled all over the floor. Naturally, she burst into tears. Her husband quietly picked the scraps back up and handed them to her — and she ate it! Five-second rule, anyone?
Combo Game Strong
Weird food combinations are normal while you’re pregnant. This guy shares that his pregnant wife loves to have pickles with ice cream.
We don’t even want to imagine the taste. But, if she loves it, then why not? After all, she is growing another human being inside of her — so the lady should get to eat whatever she wants to!
While 13 weeks pregnant, this woman had to go to the pediatrician with her older kid. She thought the doctor was amazing and had been doing a great job with her child.
She promised to bring her future kid to him as well. She even thought of proposing to the doctor right there. After getting back to the car, she began crying and looked over at her husband to ask if he was as pleased with the doctor as she was.
The Phobic Mommy
This lady had a trigger word that would make her throw up while she was pregnant — and worst of all, it was the words “chicken nuggets.” Yes, you read that right. She would start vomiting left and right anytime she heard those two words.
She could eat them, though, if they were referred to as tiny poultry. It’s not even like she disliked chicken nuggets before getting pregnant. It seems like getting pregnant made her a volatile weapon of mass disgust-tion.
The Ice Princess
During pregnancy, your body temperature tends to run on the warmer side. So, it only makes sense that this preggo woman needs to adjust the room temperature accordingly.
There’s no harm in that. However, we do have to admit that 60° Fahrenheit is quite cold! Let’s just hope that this hubby doesn’t mind it much.
The Strong Gut
Dreams do come true, at least the nightmares do, and they apparently cause husbands to get slapped in the middle of the night. This lady was eight months pregnant and dreamt that her husband was being very mean to her.
She got so angry in her dream that she slapped her husband — in real life while he was sleeping! Talk about having a vivid dream. Though she did feel guilty after waking up, how is she going to un-slap her husband now?
