    I had weddingwire at first and the website option was not customizable enough. Also the text areas didn’t have the functionality I needed to make anchors in the text and whatnot. I never considered the knot because I heard it was like the most basic website, but I made a site on theknot, linked it to my own webspace and never looked back!

    I sent lovely save-the-date emails that match the theme of the site, it tracks RSVPs and emails me when I receive one. I manage my guest list and my seating charts through the site as well. I really can’t think of anything negative to say about theknot

    @Shkragoldfish:  I did weddingwire and I love it!  You can RSVP for multiple events and ONLY the people I add can RSVP if that makes sense.  You can also choose meal options, enter addressses, put in when you send the save the dates, addresses, etc.  Helps keep me very organized. 🙂

    @Shkragoldfish:  ok, sorry if I wasn’t clear. I built my entire site on the knot using one of their templates. I chose theknot because it had designing functionality that weddingwire didn’t have.  That is, it seemed to me that weddingwire was so focused on being simple and user friendly, that there was no option for me to get a little more advanced if I wanted to. And I’m not talking anything crazy, because I’m not super techie. I just mean that in the text boxes where you enter your info, I wanted roughly the same functionality as MS Word so that I could do my fonts and text anchors (you know how you click a link in the document and it takes you to another place in the same document) for my FAQ section. Once I did this, I wanted to have my own easy to remember site name so I bought some webspace from godaddy (I could’ve bought it directly from theknot but it was slightly more expensive) and linked my wedding site to it. That way when people type in overjoyedandthem.com, my theknot.com site actually pops up.

    I used email wedding invites and STD’s (and thank you’s for that matter!)

    So I didn’t have more than 1 website, but I did have wedding website where guests were directed on the STD. (It was also where they were to RSVP) and that website http://www.weddingwire.com took RSVP’s but did not allow guests to type in names. 

    If your name was John Smith (and you were say, a single cousin) you would search John Smith and you could only click yes, or no… no option to say “2 people coming” therefore it 100% completely avoided guests RSVPing extra guests.
