- Wedding: March 2011 - Rosehall Resort, Montego Bay, Jamaica
Ive heard a lot of brides doing this. Ive tried to look it up, but Id like to see what other brides have already done with theirs. I am thinking of creating one since our wedding is Destination Wedding, as it might help our guests.
Can I see yours? Are they really that helpful? What kind of things do you put on there? Whats the best site to use?

I used mywedding.com. I started one at theknot.com but the address they give you is annoyingly long and complicated– not save-the-date friendly I don’t think. The mywedding website lets you create your own (much shorter) URL. Admittedly I liked the format at theknot a little better but mywedding is just fine and so worth it to not have to have a 2 line website address on my save the date. I’ll pm you the address… not wanting to put our full names out there for the whole www 🙂

I also used mywedding.com. It’s free and super easy.

I used mywedding.com as well! It’s so easy, and plenty of designs available!

I used myweddingday.com as well. It walks you through everything and you can put whatever you want on it. I love it and that is how we are doing our honeymoon registry.

hehehehehe, I’m probably the odd-ball-out, but I used blogspot and a nifty program I paid for called “Artisteer”. It lets you customize blogspot to look like an actual webpage instead of a blog.
Also, a lot of the wedding sites that offer free pages expire after so long (at least with theknot it does…haven’t checked the others, though). Since my wedding is planned for 2012, I wanted something with the VERY basics (venue, theme, colors, etc) setup so I can send friends the site early if I wanted to.
I’ll message you the site.
Oh, and with blogger, you can have it set to “private” in the settings, so it isn’t listed or can’t be found. (I just googled it and it doesn’t come up.)

we are using momentville.com, and it has been very helpful

My fiance is a programmer and I am a graphic designer, so we are making our own wedding website!
Here is the unfinished site:
This is the design I did, to give an example what the finished site should look like:
We bought joshandkaitlin.com, but it’s not all setup yet.

I used iWeb and bought a site from bluehost. We didn’t put much info in the invitation and just directed everyone to our website.
We plan to keep it for post-wedding photos, baby photos, etc.

I used wedsimple.com. I think it was $60 for the year, but it had designs that I like, the ability to password protect either the whole website, or just certain pages, unlimited photos, and you could upload music.
It does a funny thing in the photo gallery though, where it writes “We currently have no photos” even though we do, and I can’t figure out where to change it.
There’s also some planning stuff like budget trackers, and online RSVP tracking, seating arrangement software built in that I really liked.
They have a free trial that you can poke around with for 30 days I think.
I’ll PM your our website/password.

We used wix.com and couldn’t be happier! We didn’t like the typical ‘wedding-y’ ones, so this was perfect! Flash animated, unlimited pictures, we can design it how we want, add music, etc… I highly recommend it! If you want to see it (and promise not to share info! hehe) – it’s http://www.DanielleAndLuisAlfonso.com

I used intuit.com to create a small 5-page website. For under $6 a month you can register for your own website name (http://www.mindyandjim.com for example–that is not a real website though), and you can also put whatever you want on your site with their free and easy to use software. I chose this site because the free software makes it easy to do forms online, so I have an RSVP submission form online that a lot of people have used. Also, after the wedding we can keep the site for as long as we want and post our wedding pictures and other things. Message me if you’d like to see the site I built.
