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

@regit45:  Hmm…maybe it’s something new? How long have you been a user of theknot? I started my account back in 2010 when I got engaged

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.
