What are you favorite sites for building your wedding website, and why? I know there are a lot of factors:
customization; personalized url’s; ability to edit; special features.
What’s good these days?(I searched the boards on this topic, but most posts were at least 3 years old)
We live in New York City but many guests are traveling for our wedding and we know they will likely rely on our wedsite for most of the information.
Thanks for sharing!

For the purpose of a wedding website I like WIX. It’s a very easy to use platform if you’re looking to customize a site or use a template.
Happy to show you around the wix world if you need help!

I used The Knot. I didn’t have much experience creating websites.. The Knot was user friendly, simple to navigate and it offered everything I was looking for. It gets the job done, but isn’t overly fancy.

To be honest, even though i know HTML and have done a good bit of web design in the past, I didn’t want to waste the time on my wedding website. I used the free website offered from theknot.com. It has a very easy interface and already comes populated with different pages that you should have.
Sure, the url is a little more complicated, but it is still short enough to be on the Save the Date and the Information card in the invitations.

I am using AppyCouple! For free you get a website and an app!
My favorite feature? The app has GPS directions to my venue and a place to upload pictures taken that day so everyone can see them!
You can visit mine at ellysealex.appycouple.com

I’m using The Wedding Website Group (theweddingwebsitegroup.com). Tried a few and this one seemed easiest to use and had the best features.
I’ll post a link once we’ve finished it.

I used wix! It looks so professional and was SUPER easy! I payed the extra $25 to have a custom domain name, but you don’t have to. That’s the only thing that’s ‘premium’ that you really ‘need’. You really don’t even need that 😛

I must say i tried the Wix site and it is very easy to use. The one thing i found was missing was the ability to organise events and guests. And i also wanted a blog which is why i went with http://www.theweddingwebsitegroup.com
My site is here (not yet finished): http://rupertandjan.theweddingwebsitegroup.com/home.html

I used the knot and like the other ladies have said it is very user friendy. It walks you right through it and gives you suggestions on topics you should include. It also gives you the opportunity to add topics that you feel are important. I liked the fact that they will link a map to your website and pin point where the ceremony, reception, and lodging are so that your guests actually have a visual. Hope this helps!!
