    I made my website at theknot.com and was originally very happy with it.  I was able to add pages and post pictures. 

     

    A few weeks later, all of the pictures I posted mysteriously disappeared.  I've been trying to upload them ever since, and it hasn't been working.  When I read the posts in the help center, I realized that I wasn't the only one with this problem.  Many other brides have either lost their photos, can't upload them, or both.  Other brides have been posting that their website is no longer accessible. 

     

    I know that many BDW brides have theknot.com websites and like them, but I wanted to let you know about my recent experience. 

     

    Since then, I changed our website to weddingwire.com and I am SO glad that I did!  It is infinitely better.

     

    I hope to save someone else all of the work and the headaches.  Good luck!

        I have had my theknot.com website up for at least 6 months, if not more, and haven't had any trouble with it yet. My photos are still on it.


        Happily married on June 11th 2011 to the best husband in the world!

                I am in love with weddingwire!  You can upload music, they have apps, a cute layout, and it syncs with your guest list, has ability to do seating charts, and you can link up your registry!  If you want to see a live on, feel free to check mine out!  We haven't registered for our AHR yet so that's not updated.

                 

                Good luck!
