I used wedsite and have had a lot of compliments on it.  I really liked the fact that our names are listed in the domain ahead of the company’s domain name.  I also liked that it was really different from most of the wedding sites I’d seen.

i’ve just started building one! i bought my domain name on saturday for $7 on godaddy and then mapped it to a free google site that I just started up. I’ve done a lot of graphic and web design in the past so I’m using the google site since it’s kind of a blank slate and I have a particular vision for it.

DEFINITELY have a wedding website. 

As a guest, I find it annoying when couples don’t bother to do one–it’s so important for helping people find out where to stay, how to do transportation, where you’re registered at, and what I truly love about it is that I’m the type to forget to bring the invitation when I travel, so it’s often imperative for me to get the information via web (either using a hotel computer, DH’s iPhone, what have you). Seriously, I consider it an important courtesy for your guests (unless they’re over 70). 

Ours is technically a blog through blogspot, but you can easily get them for free–just google “free wedding website.” That might be your best option if you aren’t all that web savvy because they’re very user-friendly.

I got one through mywedding.com. I didn’t want to spend money on it since I figure as long as guests can find it and use it for info, it didn’t need to be super fancy. The site itself has a lot of different designs and is pretty easy to use if you are not tech-savvy.

We created a wedding website with weddingwindow.com It is not a free website but I figured it was worth the investment because the site is so customizable, easy to use, and has lots of formatting options! Plus it has a budget tracker and other great planning tools

we did ours through mywedding.com also, because it wasn’t something I wanted to spend money on, but it’s super important for us to have one because 90% of our guests are travelling, so we needed to be able to put travel and hotel info, etc…

We are using weddingjojo.com.  Right now we still have the free verison, but are considering upgrading closer to the wedding for the RSVP option.  It is easy to use and quite attractive.

We did ours via WordPress – but we had to tweek the template we chose quite a bit and did the design ourselves. 

If you don’t have the knowledge / tools to do it yourself I’d recommend Wedquarters – I really liked they sample site and thought the price wasn’t too high. http://www.wedquarters.com/

We have a website and its hands down one of my favorite elements of our wedding. As a wedding guest, I always like it when the couple takes the initiative to create a website. Theres only so much information that can be included on the invitation so the website gives couples an opportunity to tell their story and answer all sorts of questions that otherwise wouldn’t really get answered.

I looked into most of the free sites and none really did it for me. Fiance owns a number of domains, one being “hislastname”.com so we’re hosting our site through that (wedding.”hislastname”.com to be exact). I love being able to have complete control over the site. With the free ones, we were limited to only a handful of designs (none of which were my taste) and you could only customize it so much. If purchasing your own domain is possible and you have the ability to build the site yourself, I totally suggest it. 

Security was also a must for us. We didn’t want our site to be accessed by anyone other than our guests. Having our own domain has allowed us to not only have the site be username and password protected but we can password protect certain pages so only specific people can see it (we did this for our Bridal Party info page that will include info only they’ll need to know).
