I want to create a wedding website. We are having a intimate ceremony (parents and siblings only). I would like the website to serve as informative to them as we are getting married quickly (less than 3 weeks after engagement) and don’t have any time to mail anything.
We’ve been sharing the details by phone, but I’d sort of like to get them this information in print (give the the venue website, etc…). At first I thought I’d just send an email, then I considred an evite. However, I would like to share the photos from our day online later for all our friends and familiy to view. So I’m thinking why not create a site now if i’m going to end up having one later.
I just want a site that is free, simple to use, allows you to make the site private and has modern clean templates.
Any site recommendations? wordpress.com, ewedding.com, mywedding.com

We are using mywedding.com and it’s been great! It was really easy to set up. You can add all the pages you want (including pre-formatted ones) and make any or all of them live whenever you choose. Plus you can make it password protected. Hope this helps!

We are using weddingwire.com, I love it! It was very easy to customize, has a variety of gorgeous flash intros, allows you to write in your own HTML coding if you choose to *not necessary* and is password protected. Also it has really great features like online rsvp availability with printable reports.
I’d be happy to share mine with you if you message me so you can see a sample. 🙂

I used wordpress and while it’s not as easy to use as other options, it gives a really great, clena look – far superior to most wedding websites.
And it’s not too hard to use, just takes a bit of figuring out. I built my site using the “forever” template.

I am also using wedding wire and am very happy with it. It’s user friendly, you can password protect your site, and the templates are lovely.

I’ve just done one with http://www.theweddingwebsitegroup.com, they gave me a free account after my trial because i said i’d leave feedback for them and answer a survey, they’re normally £25 for a year.
Try it because we love it up to now.

I used Wix.com because I loved that it had a lot of flash features – it turned out really fancy-looking even though it didn’t take long to set up. It’s not specific to weddings but there are literally thousands of nice templates. But personally, whichever way you go, I would upload the photos to Flickr or another free photo-sharing website where your family can download them high-resolution (because they end up compressed and lower-quality if you just upload them to a wedding website).

Another recommendation for weddingwire right here! I tried a few and that was my favorite. It hasn’t let me down!

ok ladies. I’ve narrowed it down to either weddingwire or mywedding. Both provide password protection and nice templates which are most important to me. They both look easy to use which is important because I want to have something live by tomorrow.
My question is, as it seems I can’t go wrong with either, does either site have a standout feature the other one doesn’t? Or even the same of feature that performs better? It seems they both have guest books, playlists and photo gallery’s. I do think weddingwire had a blog feature I liked. does mywedding? Do they both offer mobile apps (iPhone and/or droid) to view the site? If not what about a mobile web version?
ETAit just tried to log onto a bees mywedding that is password protected and it was telling me I had to sign up? What’s that about? Does weddingwire do this?
