do you have a hosting service WITH your domain? cause if that’s the case It’s really easy and you just need to upload a .php file that points to your mywedding.com page.

If you dont know how to do that send me a message and I can do the .php file for you 😉 so you can just upload that to your server.

hope that helps

As far as I can tell, mywedding doesn’t support personal domain names.  If you want to keep your mywedding site AND use your domain then you have 2 options. 

1 – Set up a DNS redirect/forwarding.  You can do this where you bought your domain.  In this case, when someone types in your domain name they get forwarded to your mywedding site, but the address in the address bar will not stay as your domain.

2 – Set up a frame.  To do this you will need a hosting account somewhere (likely where you bought your domain), so this will cost more money in the long run.  This is similar to the php solution mentioned above, but is actually much easier and makes more sense. In this case you just need to have a simple html file in your hosting account which displays your website.  It basically becomes a website within a website, but it means that your personal domain name will remain in the address bar of browsers. 

There is a third option, but in your case it may not make sense.  That option would be to switch to another website service which actually does support using your own domain name (momentville.com, weebly.com, etc)

Miss Snapdragon had a post that talked all about redirecting and masking with a mywedding.com website, but was with GoDaddy.com, I think.  You might want to check out her previous post using the search feature– perhaps that will help?
