    Hi Everyone! 

     

    I am recently engaged and I have been reading through this site for the past week. And I must say this has been very helpful. I'm just starting my planning and already I feel over whelmed at times. Am I the only one that is up all night long?

     

    We decided on Paradisus Punta Cana for our location. I'm really excited about that. There seems like so much that needs to be done but not enough time. Since the wedding is less than 8 months away I think I'm behind in the planning phase.

     

    Can anyone give me good advice for my wedding website. I need to set that up asap. What is a good site/template to use for destinations? I want to have a very detailed section for the guests that are traveling. I know I need to hurry up on it so I can send out my save the dates.

      Welcome! I didn't have a wedding website, but try searching on this forum to find other gals who have put some together.

        Congrats and welcome!  And don't worry, 8 months is plenty of time!  I did a wedding website, but I'm really not sure how much it mattered.  The younger guests posted there sometimes or checked there, but I'm not sure it was worth the hassle.  I just used one of the free versions.

          Congratulations! I am also planning my wedding in about 8 months, and picking a location/resort was the most stressful. We put down a deposit about 6 months from our date. You can do it! 

           

          I used weddingwindow.com for my website (it's not free). I like it because you can manipulate the content a lot. My goal is to make it have all the information you might find in a travel book so guest can access it from the hotel if they need ideas of what to do. We sent out the website on our safe-the-dates and I've been adding information since. At the time we sent out our save-the-dates we didn't have our hotel rooms quite figured out yet, so we have our travel agent's info on our website rather than doing a separate mailing. 

           

          Good luck!

                Congrats!

                 

                I too am planning an October wedding (and we don't have our place yet) so you are one step ahead!!

                Same as Katie2012, we used wedding window for our website.  It's not free, but there are so many options on how you can customize it to what you need that I really liked the flexibility.  I figure, it's like a save the date (though we'll do those too) so it can go under "invitations" in the budget!

                 

                And even though we don't have a location just yet, it was helpful to send the website just letting people know that we're getting married in October and we'll keep them posted about the details.  We also did a "poll" to gauge how many people were interested in coming, and that's been helpful.  You can also see how many people have been visiting your site, so you know if people are checking.

                 

                happy planning!
