HI Laura, I saw both yours and your friends site. I must say, both of the sites are lovely, the designs are very nice so it makes it very difficult to decide which is the best one.
Also, on your friends, the video is a bit to big for the site, I suggest resizing the embed code with the width and height. Feel free to contact me if you need me to guide you with this.

Best Regards,
Miguel

hi girls - nice sites -
lauramay - its not a good idea having loads of stuff to download on the homepage - think about only leaving on the important things and spreading the other content out across the site. Maybe also add a new site banner.

The presleigh site in the 'pics' page, the pictures are massive - think about making them a bit smaller - you can resize an image from the picnik.com editor which is built into Yola.

Good luck with your sites. Lee http://hexham.info

I finally have the time to check these sites out:

Lauramay:
Your site is obviously a fun one!

The first thing I noticed though is you have soooo much content on your homepage. I would agree with Lee's comment made above. It also makes your site go slower. You don't want people to be frustrated when they're trying to enter your site. I would move the content to another page.

Another thing I noticed is your tabs do not seem to be in the right order. What I mean by this is: Your homepage "My awesome website" is the very last tab. I believe this should be the first tab. You can re-order the tabs by going into your site manager, click on "edit menu". Then it'll bring up your menu list. You just drag the boxes around in the order that you want them to show up - the first box at the top would be the first tab on your page.

Presleigh:
Your site is also a fun one!

Lee's suggestion that you re-size your photos is a good one. Because of their size, it takes a while for the page to load up. Smaller sized images would allow your page to load up more quickly.

You seem to have two pages exactly the same - Home and Pres Place. Make sure though that you do not delete the index one. If your "home" page is your index one, then just rename it to Pres Place if you'd like to use that as your title. You can do this by going into your site manager, click on "edit menu". Then click on the "settings" for the page you want to re-name - enter your new page name in Menu text and Hover text.

One last thing... I would suggest resizing your Youtube video on your homepage so that it fits inside pink container. Right now.. it extends beyond the pink background. I don't know if it's possible to that but if you can..that is what I would do.

Both you gals did a great job with your site. Good luck with them both.
