I made mine at ewedding.com.  The information I included was: directions to the ceremony and reception, accommodations, events, wedding party, stories about how we met, engagement story, a little about each other, and a photo album of pictures of us.  I included the website on our Save the Dates so guests could make travel and hotel arrangements ahead of time.

I thought mywedding.com had the best options/layouts for free.  People compliment on mine every day and it was very easy to create!

I used weddingsolutions.com and it was very simple to do.  Looking back, I may have gone with another site that allowed more creative freedom.  When I made it a year ago I thought it was the bomb, then I started reading this place and saw all of the options I really had and all the sites that allowed you to customize, well, EVERYTHING basically! I would search for wedding websites on this site – there have been many comparisons done.

I used weddingwire.com from the reccomendation of one of the bees. Its very easy to use and you can customize each page with what info you want. It’s all free too! Plus you can add online RSVP to make life easier. They type in their name select what event(s) they’re attending and it gets emailed to you. They also have a fun music request option where people can request songs they would like to hear at your reception. That way you’re sure to play songs that everyone likes.

We created ours on iWeb, which was super easy. The site was very useful! We updated as we had more information, i.e. rehearsal dinner directions, a last minute pub crawl… The guests really found it useful and it was a great way to direct any questions… "Just check the website!"

Many Bees have made wedding Websites and there are lots of tutorials on Weddingbee. You can be as creative as you like or not! If you go the subscription route, it’s just a matter of populating the information.

Here’s more info from the wedding website wiki: http://wiki.weddingbee.com/Wedding_website

I used mywedding.com and love it!

It has quite a few options: photo albums, RSVP, event details and directions, meet our wedding party, our story, even a page where visitors can suggest songs to be played for our ceremony and reception. (Fi LOVED this option!) You can put a countdown, picture and introduction on the main page and everything is really self explanatory.

However, you have very ltitle creative freedom with the design.  This was ok with me as I am not creative or tech-savvy and wouldn’t put more work into it if I did have the capabilities.  There are dozens of templates to use so you’ll likely find one that suits the style and colors of your wedding.  I did!

The website, along with the invitations, says something about the style of your wedding (much like invitiations) in my opinion so make sure it is you!  The colors don’t necessarily have to match perfectly, but I think the style is important (loud and fun, elegant, rustic, simple and outdoorsy, etc)

good luck!

I went with iweb, too, and it has been really fabulous! I wanted a little more flexibility than some of the wedding website providers have, but I didn’t have any html knowledge at all. The hardest part is just setting up iweb with a new domain, but there is plenty of info out there to help you through that.

Once you have the domain set up, you just create pages in iweb pretty much like you are creating a word document or a power point presentation. Crazy easy!

We just bought a domain name and then coded so we got exactly what we wanted.  It wasn’t that hard, but you can bet I wasn’t the one in charge!

we found that alot of the site providers offered free basic websites, but would expire after 6 months, 1 year. and we really wanted a wedding website that we could keep even after the wedding–to post pictures, etc. so we used blogger! you can format it so that it looks more like a website than a blog. and it makes alot of sense for us too, because we have a travel website and linked it to that.

we provided all the details about the wedding, plus useful (and fun!) info for our guests’ stay in boston.
