There are so many…

I did mine through theknot.com (if you want to check it out, I can private message the link to you).

I’ve heard good stuff about WeddingWire and MyWedding.com as well. But I’ll let other Bees comment on that!

PS: CONGRATS ON YOUR ENGAGEMENT!

Personally, I think the best option is to host your own. It gives you full control over the domain registration, and hosting packages are really cheap these days. If you’re not super tech savvy, there’s blog-style CMSs that can help you make your content look good without much effort – WordPress, Blogger, etc. There are a ton of free and cheap designs you can purchase, and it’s all in your control. However, I know that not everyone would want to go that route.

I did weddingwire, and couldn’t have been happier with that choice.

RSVP was why I choose it becasue on all other free sites the guest IS allowed to write in extra names where as wedding wire it would say John Doe accept or decline Jane Doe accept or decline (ie no place for you to write in Kid1 and Kid2). Worked wonderfully for us!

We had several compliments, it was easy to set up.

I used theknot for mine. If I could go back and do it again I would use offbeatbride.com. They have cute layouts and all the same features as the knot.

I used mywedding.com and yes in RSVP i put a reminder that invited guests are listed on the envelope. I will just be writing to anyone who tries to RSVP with more that unfortunatly due to space restraints we can not accomidate them.  I think that it depends on the couple and thier style

CONGRATS! 

I used GoogleSites. It’s so easy and you can customize everything. I wanted a site that I could have more control over than the ones hosted by wedding website companies, so that’s why I went with Google. If you PM me, I’ll send you the link to mine 🙂

I use weebly.com AMAZING control. I looked at the other sites and found that they had some of the things I wanted but not all of the things I wanted.

@CassidyR:  I really like Weebly, I use it for classes a lot. I Like how much control you have there. Though I like how easy it is to go with the wedding sites since there is so much other stuff to plan

I went with Weebly as well! I just took a look at other wedding sites to get an idea of what links I wanted on mine and such. I liked being able to sort of create mine from scratch and I also liked being able to use a little HTML (I am not sure if you can do that on the wedding-only websites?) I am really happy with the way it turned out. 🙂

@MsMindle:  How do you like The Knot’s website? I tried to set one up through weddingwire and they never sent me the confirming email although they say they have. I also have one set up at the Knot and I am tempted to just use it.

I’ve been looking around and wedsite.com looks pretty cute. 

I like that it looks like a book that you flip pages in instead of just a flat site that you click links on.
