@miss_blondie86:We set ours up on theknot.com. It was super simple, and a fun way to get info to our guests. Ours has a welcome page and password protected entrance page, out personal blubs (hometown, school, work, interests), proposal story, ceremony info and maps, reception info and maps, hotel info, area attractions, registry links, photo gallery, and honeymoon info. There’s also a guest book page for visitors to leave a message. It is very informative and over 100 guests have checked it out in 2 weeks!

Yeah I’m using mine to let the guests know how to get to the venue, what to bring (cash bar/comfy shoes), where we registered, the day of menu/program, local hotels since it’s out of town… just heads up things I don’t want to include in the invitation.

here is a sample website from weddingwindow.com. it will give you an idea of the kind of content you can put on there. weddingwindow charges for their services but some people think it’s worth it for 100% customization and personalized domain name. there are a lot of free hosts as well (like the ones PP mentioned) that do most of the same things.

I recommend weddingwire.com!!!!!

I used to use theknot,but then changed it to there. Theknot was so bland compared to the styles you can pick from on weddingwire. Trust me, look at this website before u decide. I was so unsatisfied by my current wedding website, so I asked around and someone told me about weddingwire. I was blown away!

And plus its all FREE!! It has a moving opening,tons of stuff.Check it out,I know you’ll like it. Let me know what u think.

We’re web developers, so we HAD to have an epic wedding website! ๐Ÿ˜› We custom made ours from scratch, but there are a lot of services out there that let you use a premade template.

Since a lot of our guests are from out of town, we used the website as an easy way for them to get information about traveling, places to stay and even attractions they could check out while visiting!

It is also a great place to put additional information like the gift registry, dress code, info about the venue ectect.

I ended up going with wedsite.com  A friend of mine used this site and even though we had to pay a fee for it, we both really wanted something a little off the beaten path. This website enables you to pu tyour own little spin on it, and we’ve gotten alot of really great feedback. Not to say the free websites arent AWESOME too, we just went down a different road on this choice. Happy website picking!

We used Wedding Jojo and LOVED it! There’s a free version and a $15 a month version, which we opted for because it had Guest List management. We did all of our RSVPs online. It was very convenient and easy to keep organized. We put pictures, engagement story, honeymoon details, parents…things nosey people like to know about ; ) We began running the website three months before the wedding, so I used it to do RSVP’s to the shower and bachelorette party too, as you can add different events. It was awesome! Very easy to navigate and the themes are so stinkin’ cute! good luck!

ours is thru ewedding.com  it’s free for the basics, but i paid the fee, i think it was around $50 for a year.  check it out if you like.  http://www.chrisandjeannette.com   we are getting married in FI’s hometown which is in a different province, so this was an easy way to let everyone know about flights and events that will be coming up and so on.  the only people that can see the site are the people i have given the web addy too, if i sent them a save the date, then they got the address…  take a look it you like.

I decided to pay for Wedding Window’s service. I wanted a highly customizable site and while I could hand code my own I just felt I had better things to devote my time to. I’m really happy with it. I don’t want to post the address up on the boards but feel free to PM me for the address if you’d like to take a look at it.

I ended up picking WeddingWire.com thanks to the advice of others bees on here.  It has all the basic pages you would need for your wedding site (backstory, wedding party, ceremony/reception info, etc) plus a lot of customizable extras!  Super super easy, all you need to do is sign up for an account ๐Ÿ™‚
