OMG! If I was a bride, I think I would have enough stress without having to try to navigate that mess.

Umm, WOW. Why are all the pictures out of focus? And my real question, what is the deal with the woman on her cell phone smoking a cigarette? I mean really...

My aching eyes! That is a blinking, neon horror. It reminds me of how websites looked when it was new (years ago) and ALL the colors, gadgets and effects were crammed into one mind-blowing page. Ouch. Your friend needs to tone it down (a lot) or find a good webmaster. That page could wreck client confidence levels. icon_surprised.gif

I can now say that the internet has given me a migraine - or more specifically, that website has given me a migraine. Dear God - I have seen better subway graffiti than that mess!

I took a deep breath and looked around, she's got recipes in there, sells portraits, gowns, some as low as $90 (and then posts the pic of the bride and her name as having bought these $90 gowns). I'm sorry, but if I paid that for my gown, I sure as sh(*% wouldn't want to announce it to the world on anyone's website.

That site is just plain crazy and each page is more confusing than the next.

I was really confused by this until I saw that it was located in Panama City, Florida. I used to live there, and it all made sense once I saw that. I like the page for "drawing friends" with all the sketches made on the takeout food containers.

I have to say that I'm strangely interested in this website, but it looks like more performance "art" than advertising. Someone needs to go back on their meds before redesigning it.

I also think that they should put a seizure warning on it, too.

I wondered if all that qualified as a seizure risk! lol Very, hmmm, 80's. I hope they get some professional help soon - and not just for the website...

I first saw this a couple of years ago when it was an "awful link of the day" on a site I visit. The story, as I understand it, is that they got a web designer to make them a nice, classy site, but they didn't want to pay so he changed it to this monstrosity. If you use archive.org, you can see that the layout used to be normal. Either way, it's a hell of a trip. Remember, don't rip off web designers!
