i am getting ready to make a wedding website and am overwhelmed with all the host options. i find so many of the free ones have pretty cheesy clip art selections, and you aren’t able to change the colors etc…i would love to customize our website as much as possible (and i;m not against paying a little for having that ability) – any suggestions on what wedding website to go with? thank you!

We’re using Wedorama. You have to pick a standard template, but then you can choose all the images and colors yourself. It’s not 100% limitless, but so far I’ve been able to customize everything I have wanted to. Plus, it’s very easy to use, so I’ve been able to create our website very quickly.

We’re using weddingwindow.com – they have several templates to pick from and you can completely customize the colors and images. I’ve been pretty happy with them, and 3 of my friends used them too!
If you’re interested in seeing some sites and how we used the customization:

We just started ours last night and picked mywedding.com. So far I really like it. I found it through Miss Ballet Flat’s post. Ok, my computer’s acting up and won’t let me insert a link. It’s at http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/10/02/wedding-website-5/)
There are a number of templates, online RSVP, your guests can make song requests and the domain name is mywedding.com/HisnameAndMyname so it’s not too complex while still being free.

I used http://www.nearlyweds.com it’s 49.00 for 2 years. I spent hours looking at the different sites and this one was my favorite. The templates are unique and they give you 2 wks to try it for free. Plus when I went to pay for it after my free trial, I emailed with a question on how to complete it and tech support got back to me right away and were really nice. Good luck!!

I’m using wedorama too. I really like it- there are tons of standard templates, and once you pick a template, you can tailor all of the colors, including background color ant text color.

We’re using my fiance’s Mac and his iWeb program to build ours from scratch. We wanted to do it that way so that we have more creative freedom. However, the biggest drawback is that, as amateur web designers (i.e., I have never designed a website in my life!), we don’t know how to add the intro slideshow or music or online RSVP, which most wedding website hosting services (some listed above) offer.
It’s a lot of fun to make our own–we get to include more pictures as part of the design and if you like creative projects, you might like iWeb. It’s very easy to use and it’s kind of like electronic scrapbooking.

I second jennygirl’s recommendation for Nearlyweds.com. You can change the catagories or their titles to suit your liking. Their templates are great and they match invitations from various designers. It’s very user friendly and their email tech support is very prompt and friendly. PM me if you’d like a link to our website.

Check out Miss Ballet Flat’s post about wedding websites as she has good pros and cons for the major sites out there. We ended up with Nearlyweds as well since a friend of us used it. I liked WeddingWire, just like Miss Snapdragon because it gave the option for your guests to request a song but in the end we stayed with nearlyweds because we already paid for it and the site looks cleaner.
Miss Peep Toe also select nearlyweds.

De simpliest way to create a website is http://www.hpage.com.
There you have many features, storage space and design templates and it’s totally free.
For people without programming skills but also suitable for professionals.
Furthermore, http://www.hpage.com offers many advantages compared to other providers of webspace: for instance an unlimited amount of sites, lots of capacity to store your own graphics, music, downloads, etc. and: the best is that everything is absolutely for free.

I used mywedding.com because I wanted something that was relatively easy and had cute graphics to offer. mywedding.com had a template with the exact vintage palm tree I am using for my save the dates so it was perfect. Then because the website address would have been a bit long for adding into the STDs, my FI bought a web address of just our first names from godaddy.com and linked it to the mywedding website.

You have to try Project Wedding http://www.projectwedding.com. They have the best templates (not at all cheesy) and it is totally free. I can personalize it any way I want and its very user friendly. I was even able to put together a slideshow of our family/friend photos. We got a bunch of compliments!
