I love the idea of having a wedding website. I know it’s not some people’s “cup of tea” but has anyone else started on their, planning on starting or have any advice?
My FI isn’t the most contributing. He just tells me if he likes the pictures I’ve used or not. I try to get him to help with wording or his side of the story but he’s not too into it. It’s a “whatever you want baby” when it’s wedding related lol.

My fiancée is exactly the same way, which in some respects is nice because I’m free to choose what I want. We have a wedding website because our venue is about 5 hours away from the town most of our guests will be coming from! It is so much nicer when our guests email me or call with questions I can just say ” oh I have the hotel address and phone number with our room block on the website” I love it! Whoever created this idea of a wedding website is a genius!!!
This is our wedding website: ErickandMeghin.ourwedding.com
Hope this helps!!

@cupcakebride2013: I created a wedding website using weebly.com! You can create one for free or you can purchase your own url for about $20.00. I love this site because it is super easy to use! I’m not kidding! It even has a feature that, if you choose to use it, allows guests to RSVP to your wedding.
My website is http://www.daniheartsbrian.com. Feel free to check it out to maybe get some ideas I created a few separate tabs for ceremony/reception information, accomodation information, etc. I even posted our engagement story so those guests who hadn’t heard how my fiance popped the question could read about it!
I hope this helps!

i say go to wordpress, create a blog and buy a .com for 20 dollars a year, and choose a very minimalistic theme.
that’s, to me, the classier option

We have a wedding website. We used weddingwire .
Our website is weddingwire.com/sheltonparty
Password is love
It’s not finished yet, and some information is wrong as we are changing venues, but that’s it so far.

My fiance is the same way! I made him write his about me blurb but I had to do everything else lol. I made a free site on wedding wire and then bought a domain name for $5 for a year: http://www.jacquiandchris.com. It was pretty easy to put together and I think our guests will appreciate it–a lot of them are coming from out of town.

We have a wedding website and I didn’t pressure my fiance to do his part. He did end up wanting to take part in it though! We didn’t do the “about me” blurbs but he had to write about about his groomsmen. 🙂 I love that I could add extra information that I either couldn’t fit on the invite or wasn’t appropriate to put on it.

@meghin16: yes i love that part too, that I get to for the most part choose what I want to include and not include. You venue looks really cool. We both did ours through the same site =)
@Peony526: I looked at your site and it’s really easy to navigate. I don’t think out of town guest would have a problem. I do have to say, your venue looks amazing!

I put ours together on the Knot because I know that’s where our circle of friends go to search for people’s websites. It was pretty but basic. Gave the infomation guests needed, but I didn’t go into detail on the wedding party page; just listed the names of each person and who they were to us. Included some photos from dating and engagement, plus all of the useful information about the ceremony and reception and accommodations for guests. It did the job and looked nice!
