    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 was cheap and use the free one at www.weddingannouncer.com . It was pretty nice. Better than some of the other freebies I have come across.

            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.

                  Ok, so I've taken jennifer's lead and I'm putting together my (free) website on wedding announcer. It's still in progress but check it out...
