My Fiance and I are considering having a wedding website to organise information for our guests such as accomodation details, registry info, directions etc. Have any of you used a wedding website? If so, how did you go about putting it together (ie did you use a template and where from) and did your guests find it useful?
I think wedding websites are a great idea and would love to hear about your experiences using them.

We have one, I work on it off & on.
We used weddingwire, they have alot of super cute templates and it’s really easy. I didn’t want anything complicated. They also have alot of great apps [to make your own inspiration boards, a budget sheet], and all kind of other stuff.
ours is http://www.weddingwire.com/shelton party password is love
if you’d like to take a look!
note : information on there isn’t correct, i haven’t updated it in awhile.

we used AppyCouple, it was a small fee involved but it was VERY user friendly and its password protected and you can hide certain things from certain people.

@sarsieb: There are quite a few wedding websites that offer templates for free & they are quite well organised. I’m not sure which are aavailable in Australia.

We also used Appycouple and love it! Very easy to update, has a really handy messaging system, and I love that there’s an app that matches.

I searched high and low for a wedding website provider that I liked, but most didn’t give me enough liberty to do with it as I wanted. They were too cookie cutter and didn’t make sense unless you also used their gadgets (for me).
I ended up using wix.com, which is more of a general website hosting site, but it lets you tweak the layouts as much as possible, and is super easy to design even if you can’t code for crap. They even have wedding-themed layouts, or you can completely build your own. I really like it. I have pages with our story, the details of the ceremony and reception, maps, a link to registries, and a contact/RSVP page (a form they fill out which is emailed to me).

I’m using mywedding.com and I’m finding it pretty easy so far. There were a lot of templates to choose from.

I tried out weddingwire, mywedding and wordpress.com and ended up going with weddingwire, even though some things about it drive me MAD (I’m looking at you, feature that takes me back to the page index after every single save…). But there are no ads, the templates were nicer and easier to navigate than mywedding, and I preferred the weddingwire.com/YourNames format to the other options.

We’re also using mywedding.com because it works together with the Wedding Party app, which lets guests upload pictures of your wedding directly to your app. Both the app and website are completely free! You can choose whether or not to have these pictures included on your website, which we think is a great idea for out-of-the-country family who won’t get to be there with us in person but could still see pictures in real time!

Thanks for all the ideas ladies. I’ll look into these options and I’m sure we will be able to create something lovely.
@jenilynevette: Thanks for sharing your site. This is exactly the type of thing we’re looking for.

+1 for Appy couple. I really like the ability to customize event visibility per individual guest.

I’m looking into Appy Couple. What does their domain name look like for your websites? Is it something that’s easy to put on STDs/invites?
