I had originally thought to do my own wedding website on my hosted server but really do not have the time nor energy to set this up so I have been looking at wedding website creators.
I like http://www.mywedding.com BUT they require that guest register on the site before they can even login to our website – confusing and do not like that
I am looking for a site (fee based is fine)
1. Simple url or sets up short domain name for you
2. Nice selection of Templates
3. Password protected where guests simply enter the URL and then the password and do not have to register for the site

We’re using WeddingMapper. Love it. It can be just about as personalized or as pre-made as you want.

I use weddingwire as well. I also purchased my own domain name separately and foward it to my weddingwire site. It’s MUCH cheaper than doing it all through the wedding website companies.

@unixfairy: I was actually thinking about using http://www.mywedding.com too, but now I’m having second thoughts after seeing your comment about the guests having to register before viewing our website.

We’re using ewedding.com and it’s great! It’s also nice because for a pretty minimal fee you can also have them register a unique URL (kateandwill.com or whatever).

I used google sites and simply purchaed our own url (kevinandcorrie), but I wasn’t really password protected. There was an RSVP template that just goes straight to Google Docs. I love it!

I designed and created our website using iWeb on our mac and purchased a domain for it so I am no help for you. But I know of a friend who is using http://www.weddingwindow.com and it is pretty cool and looks very customizable! I like that you can add music to it, too. You might check that out?

I’m using weddingwire, but bought a domain name from godaddy.com. Guests type in http://www.sonjandfi.com and it forwards automatically to wedding wire. It only cost $15 for two years.

I used mywedding.com. Like missjo said, if you password-protect it, your guests have to create an account to log in. It’s a real pain. What I did was creating a mock account, something like “[email protected]” and had all guests log in with that username and an easy password. As the wedding approaches, I just decided to remove the password and let it be a free-for-all, because I realized not all of our guests have the patience or the digital literacy skills to get past a log-in.

I am using WeddingWire. Everything on their site has been easiy to use.
I signed up and looked at MyWedding and ProjectWedding. I didn’t find anything that matched my wedding. I think it boils down to what template you like the best. My just happen to be on Wedding Wire.
I just started it so it empty and basic so far. I also like that you can maniplate the code if you want to edit further. I don’t know how to do this, but my future hubby does.
