We are looking to start up our wedding website in time to send out our save-the-dates later this month, but I am totally lost as to which company to go with. As much as I’d love to buy my own domain name and design something, I am NOT tech savvy so would like to go with one of the plug-in-your-info template style sites. But we still want it to be highly personalizable and be able to easily include tons of info and pics.
Any advice? What sites have you used or are you using? I’d like to hear the good and the bad, the best bang for your buck…any and all info is much appreciated!

Please check out Wedding Window at http://www.weddingwindow.com.
They are amazing; a bit more expensive than other sites, but IMO well worth it. You can STILL have your own domain name AND not be tech savvy and have pesronalized details by using their templates. They have so many functions and features with password protection..Including but not limited to: Music request for the reception, RSVP, FAQ, blogging capabilities, etc.

I am using Wedding Window (www.weddingwindow.com). I looked into a few sites and it was my favorite. It is totally easy to use and lets you include lots of info. And I think for a small additional fee you can buy your own domain name (I didn’t do this).

I’m using http://www.nearlyweds.com. I thought they had really cute and modern looking templates and if you are planning on ordering your wedding invites online, they coordinate with wedding paper divas to match your template. So far so good!

i posted the same question few weeks ago and tried out different sites that were recommended by fellow brides. My concern was the same as yours…I am not tech savvy. I found http://www.mywedding.com to be great. and the domain name is easy….just add /yournameandhisname/ and that is it….

Thought I’d add, since I work in the domain name business… it’s very easy to register your own domain (for about $10 for a year) and have it forward to whichever wedding website service you decide to use… I use http://www.mywedding.com – they have great templates that look (I think) even better than some of the ones you have to pay for!

I also like mywedding.com, as it had most of the features I was looking for and is free. In the end, though, it’s not quite as flexible in design as I’d like, so I’ll be building my own.

I also like weddingwindow.com. I found a site that rated all the different wedding Websites, and weddingwindow just seemed like the best thing, to me. It had the most positive comments and you can use various templates to make it easy. I was married in July and now am updating our photo album page with photos of the wedding and honeymoon; then viewers can see a slideshow of pictures with captions I wrote. Very easy and nice! They’ve been very helpful when I had any questions; usually they respond to an e-mail within minutes, it seems.

I really like weddingtracker.com. I think I’ve seen coupons for them on the knot, but without, it’s $60/year. They have a lot of templates and great tools to keep track of your guest list, rsvps, and seating charts.

I found great instructions on the In this Instance blog about creating a wedding website via a blog. She used blogspot and the instructions seemed easy. Plus hers turned out looking fab.
I think I will probably go this route.
