    Eh, not worth the $500 IMO. You could get a college student to make you a nice website for way less, and it wouldn't have advertising for the company all over it. It uses way too much Flash anyhow-- almost a corporate feel to it, you know.

    Fi hasn't put our website together yet but I'm pretty sure he's going to host it on a server he already pays for, so no extra costs for us.

        No way..that is expensive. My Fiance and I registered @
        Honeymoon Wishes - Honeymoon Registry where your wedding gift is a Romantic Honeymoon and you can do a briefing of that. Plus people can donate to your honeymoon. They donate to whatever you want and you can pull the cash whenever and apply it to the gifts they got for you.

            $500 is totally outrageous, but that site was great.

            On a side note...their proposal story is so beautiful i actually cried!

              I don't like that much flash in a website. It's hard to read the info when there is so much animation.

              I went with the free weddingannouncer.com because I didn't want any flash. Many of our guests have a slow internet connection so I wanted something that would load easily.

                But then again, FI's cousin is someone who paid a $40,000 site fee just to hold the ceremony and reception inside a room at the Reagan Building on Pennsylvannia Ave ~ yikes! That's double our entire wedding budget!!
                Holy Cow! THe site was very cool, and their engagement story was beautiful. However, $500 for a wedding website is a bit steep for me.

                    I can't believe that anyone would pay that much for a wedding website. I checked out the prices and there are some free wedsites through them but I didn't check to see what it entails. Here are the Packages:

                    Premium Package 1 - $450US
                    8 pages + advanced photo gallery with 64 photos + 6 popup pages + own .com

                    Premium Package 2 - $505US
                    10 pages + advanced photo gallery with 72 photos + 7 popup pages + own .com

                    Premium Package 3 - $562US
                    12 pages + advanced photo gallery with 80 photos + 8 popup pages + own .com

                    That seems pretty steep still. I paid $40 I think for my site and I got a 50% discount on the price!!! I could have upgraded to another one, but didn't feel like spending even more $ on it. That is crazy!!!
