That makes sense, that perhaps they have blocked forwarding.

Yep, in fact up until two weeks ago I did it with mywedding.com

1. Log into GoDaddy.com after purchasing your domain name; use the number from the email and your password that you chose at purchase.

2. Click on your domain name.

3. Click on “Forwarding.” It will be in a bubble at the top of the page. Put in your website, then click “Advanced options.”

4. In “Title,” enter what you want to appear at the top of the page, and then enable masking. Masking means that title and your domain name will appear in the address bar/title at the top of the page no matter what your guests may click on.

It can take up to 24 hours for it to switch over to mywedding. it’s not instant.

Good luck!

I haven’t even purchased an url so unfortunately I won’t be of much help.

I had a similar problem though and found a quick fix.
Our site is on the knot and it was WAY too long to fit on the Save-the-Date, so I made a significantly shorter one on tinyurl.com that forwarded to our knot site.

I agree, I hate the long URL!  I purchased one from godaddy as well.  I made my free website on theknot.  Anonymous left good instructions so I won’t repeat, but mine works just fine.  It did take a few hours for it to start working, though, so be patient.

We built a free website through weebly, set up and RSVP form and use a forwarded domain and it is working brilliantly. Super dessy to forward. As PP have said, it can take some time though.
