I created a wedding website thru a site called squarespace. It’s pretty easy to set up there are templates so you are basically putting your own info in. I used it first when I sold my apartment. The prices vary depending on your level but I pay about $17 a month. 

I don’t know about the free sites, I never looked at any others. I was comfortable with this place. Plus whenever I have an issue or question (I am NOT a computer programmer, I’ve asked them stupid questions) They give you an answer almost immediatly. 

If you want to check it out, message me and I’ll send you the address.

I used http://www.weddingtracker.com — it cost me $30.00 total for 1 year.  The best thing about it wast that it kept track of all of my RSVP’s, gifts, and thank you’s!  It kept me super organized and all my guests loved it.  It was also super easy to use, though I must admit that I changed the theme 5 times before I gave the site address out to anyone!

Ha! I looked at a lot of free sites, too, and also settled on mywedding.com

The only downfall so far has been that my preferred url was taken… which I got over in 2 seconds. I think the template is very user-friendly and it so many page designs to choose from. Also, it advertises itself at the bottom of the page, not the top, like many free sites.

The only benefit I am lacking by using mywedding is the personalized url, but like I said, I got over that pretty quickly.

I used weddingsolutions.com, but not the free version. They normally charge a $99 set-up cost ($99? Really? wtf?) but they waive it if you buy their wedding planner. (Cause that’s not an obvious ploy to make you buy their planner. I bought it first, checked out the site second, so I was not taken in completely!) So it’s $14 for a year, and I like it a lot better than any of the free ones I tried. I have things like a poll and little quiz on the main page, the usual rsvp and guest book functions, etc. It was very customizable and all, so I’m happy with it. Check it out if you’re curious mysite.weddingsolutions.com/chrisandliz

We’re using http://www.nearlyweds.com as it’s only $49 for as long as you want to keep it up.  Also, I love the designs they have.

We bought our own domain name ($2) and hosting service ($5/month) and programmed our own site.  When I say "we", I really mean Mr. Doctor.  I only did the annoying, "No, that should go here…" part.  (Which may have been no help at all!)

We used mywedding.com, and I’ve been very pleased with it and gotten tons of compliments.  It’s free, and the only downside (as far as I can tell) is that you don’t get a domain name that is just your names.  Instead, it’s mywedding.com/hisnamehername (or whatever you decide to go with).

We created a free website, in order to relay a lot of information to our guests (reception menu details, accommodations, etc). We printed it on everything from our save-the-dates to invitations.

We used http://www.weddingwire.com

It also lets your guests make song requests! I love that feature, we’ve already had quite a few roll in. =)

I did mine through The Knot. If I had done more research I would have chosen a different site.

The Knot was really hard to customize and EVERYTHING had to be on 1 of only 2 pages.  I basically had to lean some HTML code just to get some basic info on there (like area hotels and stuff).

A friend did her’s through mywedding.com and it was great!  Lots of different tabs for all the info (bridal party, accomodations, engagement announcements, photos, area attractions, etc)

  • Wedding: September 2008 - A tiny town just outside of Glacier National Park

I created my site using WordPress (free) and connected it to a domain that I purchased for $12USD: http://www.speyerwedding.com

Both wordpress and blogger can do everything (and often more) than the "wedding specific" sites and they’re free, too. But the catch is that unless you want a yourweddingname.wordpress.com or yourweddingname.blogspot.com site, you have to purchase a domain. They make that easy enough to do, though.
