I’d like to create a wedding website, but don’t have a clue as to where to start one.
Would love any advice on how you did yours and/or what you love/hate about it?
EDIT: I want to use the site primarily to give people information: primarily directions to the venue, registry info, and perhaps engagement pictures of the two of us. I haven’t created my invites yet, but would like to use the website to supplement the invitation (put up to date info on hotels, maps, etc. I do not plan on using it for RSVP purposes, but it would be fun to have a guestbook. Also, there isn’t a wedding party, so there’s no need to introduce the ‘party’, but I thought it would be fun to put info about our families on there.
Personally, I’d love to blog about the experience of planning, etc – but not sure that I want all my guests to read about it 😉

Are you wanting to just build a site that your guests can refer to for information or are you looking more to blog.
If you are just wanting a site for infor you can use the knot. It gives a basic site for you to add registries and other info to.
If you are wanting to start a blog there are several of us on blogspot.
Personally, I use Facebook’s application weddingbook. I also blog on blogspot. I really dont expect to use my websites for anything more than fun/info/letting others look at the wedding date without calling me every day so they can plan around it.

I started looking at random review websites and ended up using wedshare. It depends what function u want ur wedding website to serve. I used it for the purpose of disseminating information to our guests and for managing the minutiae wedding logistics.
I was more than happy to pay $100 for my website service because it allows rsvp online plus many other functions that it actually saves us headaches and $ during the planning process.

we used http://www.weddingwindow.com and paid to have our own domain name http://www.mynameandhisname.com.
if you dont want to do something like that http://www.mywedding.com has a great selection of backgrounds, etc to create a website that coordinates with your colors.
if you want to pm i can show our website but i dont want to post it for public viewing.
hope this helps!!!!

We’re using weddingwindow.com and have been very happy with it. It’s easy to set up and guests have been complimenting it from the start.

We’re using http://www.mywedding.com — I liked the backgrounds that they had, and it’s free and very easy to use. We have photos, event info, directions, hotel info and lots more online. Plus, we’re using the free online RSVP feature, and so far, about half of the responses have come in online (we also sent stamped reply envelopes and cards with the invites, but gave people the option to reply online if that was more convenient for them).
We bought a custom domain name from godaddy.com and just redirected it to our mywedding site, since I wanted a short URL for our response cards.

I used http://www.ewedding.com. It’s free and nice. Free was key.

I just used theknot.com – my main use for it is to provide information so I wasn’t too concerned about interactive features like RSVP etc…
I found a template I liked and went to town on it!

I’m another on the mywedding.com bandwagon. It’s been really great to use and even the free version looks like we paid for it!
