Was hoping y’all could help me out with this…
im starting our wedding website but we want to have own url (hisnameandmyname.com, you know…), and I’m completely lost as to how to do this.
Has anyone done this? How did you go about doing it? Did you have to pay for it? I don’t mind paying a few dollars but obviously free is always better 🙃
If you could recommend websites and possibly a few simple steps as to how you went about it that would be great.

You’d have to pay for it. And doesnt seem worth the money to me. No one cares about your site, to be honest. At least I don’t. We used weddingwire.

I hear great things about Square Space and Appy Couple. You can also purchase a custom domain through The Knot. I don’t know of any custom domain builder that is free. As far as how to go about doing it:
https://www.theknot.com/content/domain-purchase-faq (The Knot)
http://www.squarespace.com/tour/wedding-website (Square Space)
http://www.appycouple.com/ (Appy Couple)
We just used The Knot’s free wedding websites and PW protected it. The domain is theknot.com/us/(pick your link) – for example, mine is theknot.com/us/myname-and-FIname
I don’t think thst’s terribly hard to remember; plus, we are inluding an insert with the website info w/ our STDs and invtes. But if you feel you want a personal domain, you will have to pay for it.

I used minted and it was only $35 To have a custom url. I thought it was completely worth it and I love how it turned out. The sight was super easy to to and I really liked how simple the url actually is. We did initiallovesinitial.minted.us. Short, sweet and easy to remember.

We love Appy Couple, and we also did a custom URL for $35. It just looks much better on the invites and save the dates written out. We did www.(myname)and(hisname)2017.com

We are using Minted as well! There was a promotion code for a free premium website ($35 value) including the custom url and password protection. We chose: the(his last name)wedding.com — I love the format, it’s super customizable, and clean. I showed some family members this past weekend just our landing page and they loved it.

You can get a custom domain name through godaddy. Appy Couple will do it for you or you can have them link it to their account. I prefer the shorter, custom urls–it looks better on your invitations and is easier to remember. Oh, and it’s not free, anywhere 😉
