I have a paid webspace, but I never considered using it for a wedding-related site, let alone one that revolves around my wedding.  For that, I just use the webspace from The Knot, for free.

personally i think it’s a waste of time and money. people have been having weddings for hundreds of years without them.. and i honestly just don’t get the point. just another way for the wedding industry to make money!

I made mine for free on mywedding.com . They give you a template and you just plug in the info. Very easy.

We made ours on The Knot. It was easy to plug in all the information and they had tools for web RSVP and seating charts. Easy and free!

I used Wedding Wire, and I thought it was great.  I would not pay for one.

I built mine myself, hosted on my personal domain. If I didn’t have that option, I’d just use one of the free options that are available.

I also used mywedding.com for free and I think it is all that I needed.

I wanted a lot more personalization than what was available for free on those sites, but still did not pay.  I ended up doing a lot of customization to a WordPress Blog and making it my website (still for free).  I highly suggest doing that :)

We didn’t do a wedding website and I was fairly positive that we would have considering my hubby works in IT and loves all things internet.  He didn’t love the idea of a wedding website so we didn’t bother.  Less work for both of us, lol.  I wouldn’t pay for one tho

My fiance paid for the domian name (url) and is in the process of designing it himself, but then again he knows how to code so this route is a harder one for most.

No…I wouldn’t pay for one personally.  I just used weddingwire because it was easy.

Don’t bother paying for it; you can create a simple easy one on wordpress or wix.com

@jmeetyler:  Out of all the weddings I’ve been invited to, I’ve never once visited their site.  My guess is that this is one of the things people spend too much time on.  It is probably convenient for RSVPs, but I doubt much more is very useful or would be utilized.
