    Any idea if any of these sites allow you to keep the domain name for longer than a year. Our wedding is 17 months away, but I want to get started. The only thing is I don't want to loose it 5 months prior to the big day.

      You should just create your own on your own domain. :) I did mine!

        I used Wedding Window too. It's user friendly and has a lot of options.

            We used wedding wire then purchased the domain name (honestly, it looked better on the invites)  It was easy to use!

            We are using wedsite. You can pay for them to remove the "wedsite" out of the domain name. We just started our but here it is: http://www.cpandflo.wedsite.com/ I think you can pay to have it more than a year too.

              I'm going for a clean look like yours. Who are you hosting through?

                I just started using WeddingLovely (www.weddinglovely.com). It's a paid subscription ($14.95 per month or $79 one time), but it's worth it to me for two reasons. One is that I really wanted to coordinate the website with my colors and fonts. Tracy, the owner, has been so accommodating. She created an entirely new template for me to match my invites and save-the-dates! I'm so happy with it (here's the link, we're still in the early stages of adding content: www.weddinglovely.com/saraandbrian). The other reason is that I'm starting our planning really early, and I didn't want to pay for the subscription for multiple years (the subscriptions on other sites seemed to be by year). Anyway, I've been extremely happy with WeddingLovely and Tracy and couldn't recommend her enough.

                  Sorry, Im quite new at this. How do the free websites work? Is it really free or do we have to pay for hidden features?

                   

                  I think we are going to have a website, but not sure exactly how these work and teh best way to use them! Any feedback would be great :)

                   

                  Thanks

                  I think it depends on the website.  I'm using WeddingWire.com.  It's free and I haven't encountered any hidden fees.  I chose it because I really like the design template which matched my wedding colors and theme.  It also has a helpful checklist and guest planner.  I believe they make money from ads on the general site but there aren't any on my website.  Oh, I almost forgot.  You can pay a fee for a private, customized domain name.  I didn't bother with it.

                   

                  I am using the website to get information about accommodations and travel to my guests.  A few have never traveled out of the country so I include a page to tell them how to get passports and what to expect when they go through Customs in Mexico.  I also made it fun by adding music to some of the pages. 

                   

                  There are many options and you can make it as simple or as complicated as you like.
