The reason I joined this forum is because I’ve been asking all my friends this and none of them can give me a clear answer. Some said hire someone to do it, but it would be too expensive for us.
I’m thinking about DIY the site myself now. I got recommended a couple of site builders: WordPress.com and Strikingly.com. Anyone has any experience on this? Really need your help since the weddlng is just about 3 months away! Thanks!!

Yikes! I just did the knot with their easy guide layout. Haven’t finished but it seems good enough to me:) good luck!

Mywedding.com was free, had easy layouts and templates to choose from, and provided suggestions as to what information to post.
@Mandylee: But are you saying you want to BUILD your very own website instead of using companies like TheKnot, MyWedding, etc?

There are many templates you can use if you need something quickly.
I used wix.com but that was because I had some familiarity with it already. That is not really a template but allows you to have more control over the whole site.

I used weddingwire.com I definitely wouldn’t spend money on one!

I used a template from mywedding.com I typed in all the information I wanted to be there, uploaded photos and it was done. Didn’t take very long and it was free.

I used weddingwire.com. Super simple and gave me everything I needed.
If you want to completely do your own try using wix.com. Two of my friends used them for their weddings and they both turned out awesome!

I used mywedding.com also. Super easy, had a million templates. They even have their own app that you can have your guests download to upload pictures to.

I used The Knot, and I have also seem some on Wedding Wire. They are free, and if you want a more personalized web address you can always pay a little extra to get one.

@Mandylee: have you tried wix.com? here’s mine that I made on there: http://www.mr-and-mrs.ca
I just got a godaddy domain name and had it forward to Wix, and the Wix templates are all pretty nice!

I created my wedding site with SquareSpace and it’s hosted through Hover. Both have excellent support and explain the process clearly so I’d recommend them!

I used google: http://www.google.com/weddings/ They have templates for both the website and online RSVPs if you decide to go that route. It’s really easy! We have just started getting online RSVPs and it has worked great.

I also used the Knot. Free, and easy. Even for me, I’m not at all savvy with that stuff. They have premade templates that you choose from, and then you just enter your own information. It’s a bit like how you make your Facebook page.
