I know there have been some posts in the past about this but I am going to ask anyways. First question, what wedding websites do you reccomend, I’m open to free or paid sites. Also did you use a local company for your invitations or something online (i.e. paperless post or minted) and do you have any reccomendations? While I am on Christmas break I want to start finalizing some of these decisions but there seems to be sooo many options out there it can be overwhelming!
Thanks in advance!

lola5: I used weddingwire for our website- it’s free! I was also considering squarespace but it’s like $12/mo. For our Save The Date’s I just ordered off Minted. I was looking into wedding paper divas but may save them for our actual invites. If you live near a papersource store- I would check them out as well. They have binders and binders of different invitation suites- seems pretty cool, we haven’t decided on anything yet so I’m interested to see what other people have to say as well!

2thDr: Thank you for your response! I haven’t heard of wedding wire so I will have to check it out. Have your minted save the dates arrived yet? If so, how are they?

We’re using appy couple and while there is a one time payment, the site and its features (and ease of use!) has pretty much paid itself over!

lola5: I’m looking into using appy couple for our website. It’s paid, but only a one time fee of $39 (I think) and you can keep it up as long as you want. If you sign up for it but don’t actually put in your card info, they’ll email you a coupon. I haven’t decided on invites yet, but I’m thinking mass companies will be cheaper if that’s a concern.

lola5: I also used weddingwire 🙂 I would have considered the knot as well but it was super confusing to navigate
I liked the look of my page, and they had a link to matching invitations too so I went with that for mine lol it was invitationsbydawn. i like how you can previews the inviations as you make the changes
there was a slight miscommunication when ordering, but customer service so far has been great– they’re worth checking out 🙂

- Wedding: Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception/The Gallery
We’re using Riley and Grey (https://www.rileygrey.com) and I love it! It’s easy to use, very customizable and we can easily do RSVPs through the site.
As for stationary, we’re using a local designer and having them printed at a local print shop. It’s not the most inexpensive option (though really pretty reasonable) but I like that we’ll have a suite that no one else has.

Used the knot. I liked the site and thought it was pretty easy to use. It can be glitchy though so not sure if it’s the best, but I already send out my save the dates with the web address so oh well!

I used the knot for our wedding websites. I ordered save the date magnets through vista print, and they look awesome. I will most likely get our invitations through vista print as well.

2 free websites set-up, on The Knot. After I gathered all the information, such as bridal party bios and hotel room block information, it took less than an hour, to complete each. The wedding with 250 guests did their RSVPs, through the website, too.
Invitations purchased through etsy vendors. $$$

I like wedding wire. We actually JUST decided to do online RSVP’s through them and it really was very easy for both myself, and our guests who are RSVP’ing. They have LOTS of designs and your website can be password protected as well 🙂

We’re using appy couple. I add the wedding website on the invitation for the guest to RSVP.

Appy Couple! I love it. our guests are RSVPing through it as well. We are doing ecru letterpress invites through Wedding Paper Divas, since there was a great 50% Groupon type of voucher we bought.
