Hello bee’s, I debating making a wedding website or not, our wedding is in a little under 10 months and we do have a lot of people coming from out of town. Our wedding is also about 45 min from our home towns and it is in a hotel (I am going to block a bunch of rooms). Originally I didn’t want to do one (not sure why) but the more I think about it I probably should, I think it would be best for the guests.
So my questions to you all are- do you think I should? What have your experiences been with brides having websites or not, does it really make a difference? Also what is the best site that is free? Any other advice?

We used weebly for ours. It’s free, really easy to use, and did the job of conveying all of the info we needed it to. That said, it’s barely been used by our guests, so I am really glad we didn;t put much effort into it.

We did a website, our wedding is in just about 9 months and everyone is from out of town. Found it useful to post all information, and so far those I have shared it with have found it useful. Giving out the website on our save the dates that will go out the beginning of November. We used wedsite, though not a free site, I LOVE IT! You can see samples of others on their facebook page…..

Our wedding is out of town as well in about 9 months so we made a wesbite to put hotel, restaurant, etc. info. We put the address on our save the dates so I bet people will use it then.

We made a website and put it on our save the dates. Honestly, no one will probably look at it, but it was free so I just put up some info about the wedding.. hotels and restaurants in the area, etc. We’re using http://www.mywedding.com

I made a free website using The Knot and listed the url address on our save the dates. I had the hotel rooms blocked and other info for all of our guests. It’s helpful bc now I don’t feel obligated to print out a separate “Accomodations” thing for the invitation (though I still might, not sure yet) and in my opinion, the website is a polite way to let guests know registry info too.
The free one I did through the knot wasn’t as awesome as some I have seen but it worked for what I needed it for! However, I will say that when we went to a wedding recently and relatives mentioned that they had received our STD’s, they didn’t even realize there was a website on them, lol

We used mywedding.com and really like it. It’s super easy to make, and it’s a lot easier than answering the same questions 50 times through email or text. I can see how many views our website gets, and I know that people are using it. And some have left guestbook comments. My FH really likes that part.
