Facebook couples pages. As if we didn’t already know too much:
You’re in love and you want the world to know, now Facebook has created an ‘us’ page that lets you chronicle your relationship. The page combines every post, picture, and event that you have shared with your partner. It also includes your shared ‘likes’ and mutual friends. If you’re listed as “in a relationship” with someone, you simply need to visit facebook.com/us to view the page.
In seriousness, though this offers tons of opportunities for needy partners to overstep their bounds—”I made us a Couples page to commemorate our second date!”—and oversharing friends to gross you out, what it also might offer is a very easy way to make a wedding web page. Couples now use a multitude of paint-by-numbers wedding blog services to do this, but it inevitably ends in a pretty site that’s un-Googleable for which you lost the web address because it was printed on an actual paper card, and you therefore never actually see or use. This would eliminate that, but many brides may continue to want the semi-customized look of their own site.
