Not sure about godaddy, but I know theknot.com will let you buy a domain name like that for like $20.

You could always use a website shortening service like tinyurl, so your website would be tinyurl.com/bride&groom.  Still not the same as what you are asking because you still have other domans in the address, but I know it is free, plus you can usually get a counter and see how many cliks you had.  

I quick Googled url shortners and this is what came up.   So there are many options if you go this route!

What you’re talking about is called masking. Masking is when the user only sees the domain name as groombride.com even though the real website is wix.com/whatever. Not all wedding website hosts support masking. If masking is not supported you could forward your website, meaning when users type groombride.com they will be forwarded to wix.com/whatever (and will see the real domain name).

I’m not particularly familiar with Wix, but a quick google search turned up this page on Wix’s support of masking and forwarding: http://www.wix.com/support/forum/flash/other/other/i-bought-domain-forwarding-and-masking-to

Good luck!

If you want it to read your names.com you have to get a paid wedding website. All the free ones will have the website name in the link. Wedmedo allows you to create really nice flash wedding website but you do have to pay for it.

here is one of the sample pages http://www.wedmedo.com/contemporary/

I recommend avoiding godaddy.com specifically – I’ve heard a lot of awful things about them. (Everything from their awful, sexist, objectifying advertising to very unfortunate tech support.) But yes, you would want to register a domain and redirect the URL to the one you already have.

Do you know anyone who works on websites? It’s a pretty simple process, but might be different depending on what provider you go with. Someone who’s a little bit savvy, though, could probably do it for you in under 15 minutes.

Fiance bought a domain name through godaddy that lasts for a year, brideandgroomwedding.com.   I think after setting up the domain name, there is somewhere on the godaddy site where you type in the real address you want the domain name to point to.  I remember it being pretty easy. 

So 1)buy domain name 2) redirect domain to wix website 3) Put brideandgroomwedding.com on your invites.

Does that make sense?

@August252012:  Okay, but I think you need to upgrade to a “premium” wix account in order to have your own domain name (see the first item in the list of features on the page I linked to)
