I am clueless as to where to begin in creating my wedding website. I read another post in which Mrs.Eggplant created an amazing website, and I am not that computer savy at all! These are the things that I would like my wedding website to do:
-Allow guests to RSVP easily (I would love it to send an automatic message to me as well as a "thanks for responding" message to our guests, but this is not a necessity) -Allow guests to look at & print out maps -Allow guests to see our registry -Allow guests to enter hotel information (ie what hotels they will be staying at) -Allow guests to learn more about us
Also, I would like this website to be free 🙂 Any Bees familiar with such a website? Any suggestions for me as a beginner in this process?

the knot…you can get all of this on theknot.com for free…or if you want a fancy type website, the knot has a 50% off deal for weddingtracker.com and they have all the fancy websites…and I think it’s like $30 for a years worth of hosting…

I really like project wedding, people can probably comment about where they’re staying in the guestbook and you can easily make custom pages.

I am using ewedding.com. I am not computer saavy, and found their options easy to use.

i was originally looking for a free website as well (and i even made a couple) but they were such a hassle and really not what i was looking for, so in the end i paid for one with weddingwindow.com and i am soooo glad i did. so far our guests have seemed super impressed with it and it was pretty easy to create (a bit time consuming, but not at all difficult). so its not free, but i would check it out.

We are using weddingwindow. It’s not free but it’s really super nice and easy to use.

YES! mywedding.com does all of the above and it is free and super easy (much more user-friendly than the Knot IMO).
Here is what you wanted and how mywedding.com does it:
RSVP – It has an RSVP page you can activate which allows you to also keep track of meal choices if you want. You can export your RSVP list to an Excel sheet with one click.
Maps – your guest can look at and print out maps – all you need to do is make a custom page using their template and enter the Googlemap URL.
Registries – it has a registry page template. Enter in as many stores as you like.
Allow guests to learn about you: Create the “Our Story” page using the template. And you can also add photos to the “phot Gallery” page and activate the Blog page if you wish.
Guest to enter which hotel or other info – Create a “contacts” page using the template for this. The contact page will allow guests to directly contact you with questions or comments. You may view and reply to these contacts from this page. You can also activate the Guestbook and have guests put in their hotel info when they sign in, but I think the contact page might work better for your purpose.
I feel like a commercial for mywedding.com but I LOVE IT. Their tech support is super helpful if you get bogged down at any point in the process.

Would some people mind sharing their wedding sites and where they have them hosted? Also, if you host not on theknot, will you registry info pull in? Thx in advance!

I checked out several of the "free" sites and even signed up for a couple (theknot and eweddings) before staying put over at mywedding.com. I LOVE it 🙂 (www.mywedding.com/kennyandjess) – it’s still in the making!
