I’m trying to create our wedding website through The Knot.
I’ve always seen nice urls like this: http://elizabethandjoe.ourwedding.com/ (just picked a random url) through The Knot. BUT IT WON’T GIVE ME THAT DANG OPTION!
Here’s what it’s giving me (changed the names for privacy):
“Choose a web address for your personal wedding website. Share this web address with friends and family to keep them up-to-date about all your wedding details.
Your default personal web address is:www.theknot.com/wedding/Jones-and-SmithYou can also choose from the following FREE personal web addresses:
Anyone know why? It doesn’t give me an option to pick my own. Just those 4.

They must have changed their options… I did mine throught the Knot about 5 months ago and the default options was whatever we wanted.ourwedding.com

Most of the time if you get a free website it will have that site’s name in front I think. Ours was weddingwire.com/—-

@regit45: Check your registration info. Are your (you and FI) names in the info section?
Our wedding website address is MyName-and-HisName.ourwedding.com
I think you’re stuck with one of the 4 options
eta: I bet you some of those people purchased their own domain name

Mine was the same way. We ended up paying the $20 to get a personalized url for one year so it’s http://www.mylastnamehislastname.com which was so much easier to tell people and have them remember. Plus it was pretty sounding to me since both our last names are colors – though FI’s is the German spelling.

@regit45: I preferred the free site offerred by mywedding.com. We were able to make our address however we wanted and the page is easy to customize and edit.
Our address is: mywedding.com/HislastnameWedding
My maiden name is the password.

@regit45: I agree the knots choices were way to long but thats also because we have long names! We did joinourwedding.com so the url is joinourwedding.com/oursite/Whateverwewanted

You can just buy a domain name and have it autoforward to your wedding website address. I got mine from Go Daddy and it was like $10 for a year.
