Hello brides! I know this is a topic that has been displayed before but the ones I found on here were several years old and I’m sure a lot has changed since then. What website are you using for your “personal wedding” website. I was debating on even having one but since I’m having a destination wedding I suppose I should. What websites have you had good luck with and what websites are “no no’s”??

I used Weddingwire.com. It was easy to set up, and the online RSVP process worked well!

We’re using The Knot. It is easy to set up and it gives us everything we want, including automatic links to our registries. We didn’t care about personalization or anything special – I just wanted one spot for all the information.

mywedding.com has been good so far. Really easy to set up, has online rsvps, you can track how many site visits and page visits there have been. I get an email anytime someone writes in our guestbook, rsvps, or puts a music request, etc on the site.
We have password protected ours for a few reasons, so I really like that feature.

I used Squarespace (http://www.squarespace.com/tour/weddings). I thought it had a nicer, cleaner look than some of the other sites I found. I also like that it’s really compatible with mobile devices. Once I played around with it a little bit (a couple hours one Saturday morning), I found it really easy to use (I have zero web design experience) so I would definitely recommend it.

I used squarespace also. I love it. It’s really inexpensive and looks clean and professional. I will say it takes more time to create than others because there is more customization involved.

I am using wedding window- I looked at all the typical ones (knot and weddingwire) and I just didnt like the look of them, they are all so generic. I love my wedding window website.

The knot. It was free, easy to use, and had premade templates. I used their DW template and it was pretty cute

I used Jux. It’s similar to Tumblr in that it’s more of a blog template but it’s pretty cool and easy to use once you get the hang of it. It’s more photo-focused, which we liked.

I do web design, so I made my own site (with WordPress). But if I would have chosen a turn-key wedsite, I would have gone with Riley & Grey for sure. They have really gorgeous templates and it seems easy to use. > http://www.rileygrey.com/

we’re using glosite.com for our domestic destination wedding. there are free options and options you have to pay for. we’re paying and it is SO worth it. All of our travel, accommodations, what to do/see, FAQ info is up on the site and the site even lets us send email out electronic versions that look just like our invites Iin cute envelopes & everyting) of our save the dates and invitations. It also let us send out by email our wedding info packet and reminders when our hotel blocks were closing. All of the email “letters” also link directly to the website if ppl click on them. It looks great on phones and we have 100% of our rsvps at almost 1 month out (you can ask about what meal choice, hotel, flight, anything you’d like).
The sites can be public or password protected. For ours, it knows who each individual guest is by their email & only lets them see the events that they’re invited to (so non-bridal party members can’t see info for or rsvp to the rehearsal, but bridal party members can and do). It’s really pretty amazing and we’ve gotten so much good feedback on the site. They have premade templates for the websites and evites (some free, some pay), but we used our own. There are sample weddingsites available to see when you visit glosite.com

We’re using Riley Grey. It’s a bit more expensive than other sites, but it looks so much more professional and well-done. They don’t have that many designs, but the ones they do have are really nice looking. Also, it provides a lot of space for things to do/eat/see near your wedding, which was important to us, since more than half of our guest list is coming from out of town. There are also a bunch of promo codes out there, so we didn’t pay the full price.
My second choice was Square Space, but I didn’t feel like doing as much work!

We’re using wedsite, I looked at a bunch of them, just thought it was really cute, basically set up as if it were a photo album online, we’ve gotten a lot of compliments on it. I oringinally had one one mywedding.com, but just wasn’t convinced by the look of it, decided to pay and get one I liked more, so happy I did.
