Submitter’s comments: Right away from the pointless start page with music that takes ages to load, I knew I was being transported back in time…to maybe before 2004, when the trend was to unrelentingly do everything in Flash, for no good reason. (Maybe designers gave up trying to make sites work in a variety of different broken browsers and Flash was seen as a quick way out of browser hell… only to inflict us with another kind of hell.)
Enter the site and the first thing I see is a lot of badly formatted, nonsense text to read, which tells me nothing.
I Almost failed to spot the very dark navigation on the left that only appears when the mouse is over each one.
The annoying noisy headings that take ages to appear… weird navigation…
some pages have that horrible “make you read everything through a tiny letterbox with awkward scroll thingy” that was so popular back in the day.
This site needs to be put out of its misery.. Sadly I’m not a web designer, otherwise I’d quote them to redo it.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: Nicely reviewed.
Flash for websites is as dead as Steve Jobs. To make a Flash website even “deader” than it is requires a Splash Page. This site has one. After that, I’m taken to a page I can’t read, with symbols I didn’t even notice without the help of the submitter’s comments and such a confusing mish-mash of I-don’t-know-what that I don’t have the slightest idea what the site is about except that it’s not about weddings. I don’t care about the site so I leave. After taking a cursory examination, I suggest you do the same.
