    I am still "new" and learning how to navigate.  Can someone please tell me about making a website for the wedding.  How does this work, what are the benefits, and how do I do this?

        Hi bride81, There are a ton of ways to make a website out there. I've seen free websites from wedding sites (ie theknot) and companies that you can register with (ie crateandbarrel). We used weddingwindow.com and I really like it (not free). 


        Good luck!

        There are many great free websites to create a wedding website.  Try doing a search on this forum.  Good luck!

          We used mywedding.com. They have great templates and their websites are easy to make. I update the website whenever I have new information. A lot of our guests refer to the website on a regular basis. I divided ours into different sections (accomodations, our story, photo gallery, events, etc)


          Hope this helps :)

            I love wedding window website, but opted for weddingwire.com because it is free.  It was really really hard, but I guess its all part of the budgeting!!

                Congrats and welcome to the forum!  I can't recall what site we used, but I'm not sure it was necessary either.  If you have a very tech-savvy family/friend group, then sure, but so many of both of our families are old and don't know how to use computers that it didn't get the traffic that I expected/wanted and if I could go back, I would've just skipped it.  But that's just me!


                If you have not done so, you may want to:
                • complete your profile (upload a photo, add profile details, etc.)
                • visit the Newbies forum and introduce yourself
                • find the forum for your wedding destination and create a subscription to threads/members/vendors that you are interested in

                  We used wedding window, they have lots of packages from free to $100/ year.  For me the benefits are using it as a way to communicate with your guests, give them information and RSVP.  I love ours and get a lot of positive feedback. You can check it out if you want it's www.angandjay.com
