Funny you mention a wedding website – I wasn’t going to do one and then while talking with FSI a couple of nights ago she asked if I was doing one – – I thought about it and since about 90% of our guests will be traveling to our wedding I thought it made a lot of sense to create one.  We are all on different schedules as well as time zones and if anyone has any questions and needs answers straight away, the website will (hopefully) have the information they need!  ANYWHO – – – I began one through The Knot and thus far its pretty fun  Wink

We set up ours through the Project Wedding site.  We weren’t looking for anything too fancy or elaborate, mostly something that was simple and pretty.  We chose this site because it seemed really easy to use, had good web address options, and had a color scheme/design we both liked.  I have been happy with it so far and have received a lot of nice compliments. 

It is a really good idea to have it done before Save-The-Date Cards go out.  I had been working on it off and on and eventually had to delay sending out Save-The-Date Cards because I didn’t want people to see a website that was in progress.

I set up a website mainly to pass along information to out of town guests.

We listed…

The two area airports (as well as what airlines fly to/from them)

Driving directions from all of the different places where things are happening (airports, ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner, hotel)

Fun things to do in the area.

And the hotel where we blocked rooms.

People still ask our family members for the details so I don’t know how much it helped everyone. I would like to think that everyone that hasn’t asked found the information on their own.

I finished by website a month ago and my save the dates are going out in a few weeks. I think it’s a good idea to have it up so guests can get all of the information right away, especially anything pertinent to travel.

Work in process, but ours is http://www.mywedding.com/donnyandrachel. I’ve really enjoyed using My Wedding.com, because all the pages/layouts are predetermined, and I just insert the information. If I had the time to play more with the design or if I wanted more freedom, then I wouldn’t recommend this site, but I needed to relinquish SOME control right? 🙂
