I went to the Knot a couple months ago and started making our own wedding website. I picked the free edition but they have two different price ranges that offer to let u have only your names in the website address(20.00) and the other one which is 30.00 on sale that has that plus moving scenes on your website.
So my question to you bees. Should I spend the cash and have only our name in the address and/or have a website where images move,etc? Is it worth it? Is paying worth it??
Would you spend the cash even when you already have a nice wedding address for free?
By the way, tonight has been the first time where I actually started to put info on it. I plan on sending out our STD’s in December and I heard from other bees that you mostly need your website done by the time you send out the STD’s. Im so excited!!

I’m on weddingwire, and people have no problem typing in the extra words to find our website. I wouldn’t pay the extra cost unless you are dying to have a website with your names only on it. Like, really desiring it hugely.

Thanks bees. Thats what I was thinking but wanted to make sure. I figured its a nice wedding website already, I dont need moving images,etc.
I dont need the extra’s. 🙂

You just need the basics. I’m seeing now that although I put our website URL on our save the date, now that our invitations are out people have completely forgotten and constantly ask me questions that are easily answered on the site. So…it’s feudal.

yeah, I have a free knot website, and our names our in it, and we got to semi-pick it, (but it’s not just our names.) People looked at it when we sent it out when we got engaged, but hardly anyone has looked at it since we sent out our invitations, even though the link was included.

not worth it, in my opinion. just go with the free one.

I honestly wouldnt spend the money. Fiance and I are using the free version on the knot, and it provided us with everything that we need to make a website that would benifit our guests.

I refused to spend a single cent on my wedding website. People can figure out how to type in your URL, don’t worry! I bet a lot of people won’t even look at it to be honest.

I have the free knot website and it has our names in it, but I don’t think I got to customize it. I also just created a website on shutterfly for people to upload pics after the wedding, and I was able to make part of the URL anything we wanted. Unfortunately let my Fiance pick it out and it’s something silly like http://www.bride‘snameandgrooom’snameweddingextravaganza.shutterfly.com, lol.
