@EffieTrinket:  …not to sound like a rube, but what happens on a wedding website?

@EffieTrinket:  Wedding Wire. The colors/theme match our theme perfectly.

 

@Nona99:  On our website we have our story, all wedding events (wedding weekend), online RSVP, accomodation info (room block and discounts), list of our favorite local activities, slideshow and discounts I have arranged for wedding guests (helicopter!!).

@EffieTrinket:  Wix.com. It’s free and allows flash, which is pretty cool. You can make a mobile version if you want (we didn’t get around to doing that for our wedding website but it’s an option if you think your friends will mostly use their phones to view your wedding website…)

I bought the domain name for 1 year and it’s since expired (we got married around a year ago), otherwise I’d PM you the URL so you can see for yourself. But they have some really nice templates that you can customize to your heart’s desire. But anyways, here’s a link to the blog post I wrote about it, it has a few screenshots – http://www.weddingbee.com/2012/11/06/semi-diy-wedding-website/#axzz2lhE0zhNL.

Camel had an amaaaaazing website 20x better than mine, she used Wix too – http://www.weddingbee.com/2013/03/18/our-wedding-website-2/#axzz2lhE0zhNL.

@EffieTrinket: No advice as we haven’t begun to set ours up yet, but LOL to the Geocities comment. I used to make pages there! They were teeeeeerrifying.

I feel ya! What bugged me the most were the fonts – you’ll have a decent layout and then for some reason they use the world’s ugliest fonts, ugh.

I did manage to find a weddingwire one I liked though. Good luck!

Also, wordpress.com has some decent free templates, and you can upgrade to a .com address for under $20. I was too lazy to go that route though.

I didn’t find any, so I built my own site using WordPress.  If I were to do it again I’d probably use Squarspace.  Try it.  It’s not hard.

I have a knot one and I really don’t think it is corny/90’s at all.

I just used the knot’s free site. All it had to do was have directions on it and a link to our registries, so it wasn’t that important to me.
