I am just starting to look into a wedding websites. Did any of you girls do free sites, or did you go through a company? Any recommendations? How much do sites cost and how do you pay for them? (monthly, annually, etc..) I am such a moron when it comes to computer technology!!

I used www.ewedding.com and have been 100% happy with them. $89 for the year with your own domain name. The only other one I would personally consider is www.weddingwindow.com, which is similar in price and features. I think my guests have been able to really utilize my site and I swear it has saved me tons of time and sanity! I would definitely make one.

I will look into all of these! I think that I really need a site so that I can defer some of the common questions that come along with planning a destination wedding!! I am trying to plan most of it on my own so far!

Janet,

 

I love your website! It has so much information, and is really user friendly. How do your guests know each time you update it? Do they just check it frequently, or will the site email them?

Thanks, Liza. Please feel free to "borrow" any text you want for your own site if that helps you.

To answer your question, there is a feature where people can sign up and give you their email address, and you can easily send group updates. However, I didn't really do this because I felt like most people just visited on their own once they realized it would help them with their planning. They usually visited once when they got the save the date, and then they visited again when they got the invitation.

The invitation directed people to RSVP directly to our website, which is awesome. I didn't have to buy return envelopes or stamps! Everyone just got online and did it, and while they were there could look up info. Of course, people who aren't web savvy just had to call me instead :)

We have had more than 1,000 visitors to the site and only have about 55 guests, so it shows that people come back more than once.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
