    I actually used Blogger to make my wedding website. Pretty basic, But it did what I needed it to do

    I used wix.com  it is free if you use their wix domain or you can pay for your very own domain. I love how customizable it is and not like the cookie cutter weddingwire/knot websites. I also embedded a google form for rsvp onto it. Highly recommend wix!

    I used The Knot.  It’s basic, but free and easy.  I was looking back on my page the other day and thinking it looked pretty professional.

    I did mine on The Knot, and it was super easy. They promot you for the information and then format everything for you.

    DoubleA903:  I believe you can make it so its doesn’t show on search engines. I’m not sure about passwords but I assume so.

    DoubleA903:  I voted wedding wire because I think the format is easier to find information on than the one that the knot offers (the knot recently updated theirs and I even found parts of it confusing). However, wedding wire can be cookie cutter too, so if you want something more customizable I would also agree with Wix. Personally, FH and I went with Squarespace, as I loved the format of it, but it was a little pricy (though they include a personalized domain and there is a student discount if you have a .edu email from a registered college). You can also password protect that site as well, and I have embedded some Google maps and forms for RSVPing.

    We are using Appy Couple and really love it!  There are some pretty designs and the site looks a little more custom than The Knot.  There was a fee to sign up, maybe $35, but there are always coupon codes if you google for them.  

    There is an option to make it un-googleable which we did until we were ready for people to be able to see it.

    This post inspired me to make mine! I just used the Knot and found it very easy to navigate. I also liked that there was an option to create a pin for people to enter into it (I’m a teacher and so is my Fiance, so privacy is important!)

    I purchased a WordPress template and am using that. It has online RSVP, an events section, an about us area, and has some great galleries on which to show off our engagement pics 🙂

    A lot of wedding websites made on the popular wedding hosts tend to all look the same. They are probably easier to make because of the straightforward template. We used Google Sites for our wedding website because we were able to customize and because we are google fans. There are settings to adjust who can view your site.

    I used weebly and purchased a custom domain for $15. So worth it. It look so much professional and streamline then one of the templates from the knot.
