Free Wedding Website vs. Wedding Website You Pay For-Which is Better?

Recommended Posts

I am looking into creating a wedding webite and I was going to look into a free site. Are there any good ones out there or is it better to just pay for one. I would like some options such as adding music to the site and RSVPing online. Are those avaiable on any free sites?

Hi,

 

I am using weddingwire.com and you can either add one song that replays during the whole viewing of your website or have a playlist and when your guests view a different page the song changes.  Also you can RSVP online.  The website is free and the reason I went with it is because you can delete a lot of pages that seemed unnecessary to me or add ones.  You can customize every page by changing layout, page name, add pictures, hyperlinks ect. Almost all websites had "registry" and my guy did not want that on there, i couldn't find a website other than this one where I could delete that page!  Good luck.  You can sign up for weddingwire and check out the website feature...just play around with it and see what you can and can't do. That's the best way to see if you'l like it!

Thanks so much. I am definitely going to check them out. I couldn't find one where you could delete pages. I have seen a lot of suggestions on here; I'm jsut trying to figure out which is best.

 

Thanks Again

I used mywedding.com and they had music and RSVPing for multiple events online.  you can also hide and un-hide any page you want to plus they have custom pages that you can create as well

We use a free one called mywedding.com and it's complete customization. You can turn on or off any page you want, so while you are working on one, you can see what it would look like but until you activate it, no one else can see it. For the beginning stages we only had our wedding date (home page), our story, and accomodations. Since then, I've added more pages, RSVP, Music requests (and you can make a 5 song playlist), FAQ, Wedding Party details, Packing lists, etc....

We also didn't have a registry for quite some time, but about 2 weeks ago I got a phone call from my parents upset that we didn't have one because our grandparents expect it! So I added a registry for them. I guess for some people it's customary. If you think you will have guests that want to be sent a registry, you might want to give them a little piece of paper in their invitations only stating where they can buy you a gift, if they choose to. Who would have known people wanted a registry?

Thanks so much for the info. I am so excited about creating the website. I have a long time before we get married, but I like to plan early. I wasn't sure if I was going to do a registry either as we already live together, but I think we are going to do a honeymoon registry.

how long until you get married? I'm on the long track as well.  I'm having fun exploring everything and planning and taking my time though!

I am getting married November 11, 2011. I have a lot of time also. I am having fun looking into everything. I have a lot of time, but I can be indecisive so I need it, lol.

I really dont know which is better, but I am using weddingwire. From my research and comparison, it pretty much gives you just about everything that a paid website offers. I think the only difference is that with the paid website, you get your names as the url.  Weddinwire also offers this but you have to pay extra.  I love weddingwire.  As was said before, you can definitely check out a few of these sites, paid sites have free trial periods, I tried a few before deciding on weddingwire. It is easy to use, customizable and fun!  Good luck with making your choice!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
