The wedding is in 10 months but with people traveling from Ireland to the USA and then from the USA to Ireland I’d like to get a wedding website up and running so that we have a page to include on Save The Dates.
Have any of you set up a free wedding website?
Do you have any recommendations for ones that work well? Or for those that DON’T work well?
I appreciate any advice the hive can offer!

I hate the Knot but I know it works for others. They have good websites for your party, I guess I am more against their boards. There are some rude people on there!

AnamCara – there is a wedding bee wiki on this topic with lots of great information: http://wiki.weddingbee.com/Wedding_website

I would recommend mywedding.com. It has an RSVP function and pretty much all the functions the Knot does, except more space to customize. We have many guests from Norway and Germany, so the website is essential – and it has so far met our needs 🙂

Jumping on to this, does anyone know of a free wedding website tha also offers password protection.

I have to agree with msdanielle. We use mywedding.com, and after looking at almost all of the free ones out there, this is the one we decided on for many reasons, and therefore, can’t recommend it enough. We actually had a lot of friends quit the sites they were using to use mywedding because they loves it so much.
1. A BLOG! We use it all the time to update about our wedding planning for the immediate family members to read about, and they all love it, and leave us comments all the time. It’s nice because when we see them, I don’t feel like we’re JUST talking about the wedding because they know everything already.
2. RSVP function, as msdanielle said. I don’t use it because we wanted reply cards, but it’s nice to have just the same.
3. A TON of template designs. More than any other site we looked at.
4. You can post photo galleries for friends and family to see.
The only thing I wish it had was a password-protected site for just wedding party members. Our wedding party is really tech-savvy, so we were hoping to just be able to post everything online as far as dresses, shoes, suits, ties, etc. and have it password protected so only they could see the info, but they don’t have that option. But that’s okay because they have everything else we need.

You read my mind!!
We’re actually using weddingwire.com. It has an RSVP function, you can link to a blog (I have one on blogger), AND you can password protect it.
I was still wondering if I should switch before I officially send out STDs!
Does anyone have experience with weddingwire vs. mywedding?

Mywedding.com was what we used as well – they had fantastic templates and it was really easy to set up!

One additional comment–
one thing I like about weddingwire.com is the RSVP page–you enter a guest list and only guests that are on YOUR list can RSVP.
I found that on mywedding.com, anyone could RSVP.
Just a thought.

mywedding.com has a password protection function too i thought – they call it "webpass".
hope that helps!
