So, you’ve gotten engaged, maybe selected a venue, and want to start putting some details out for your guests to see. A great way to keep guests informed on the happenings of your wedding is to put together a wedding webpage. You might start by searching for a wedding webpage host, but I am guessing it won’t be love at first “site”. There are so many to choose from, it can be overwhelming.

Websites for the Somewhat Tech Challenged

Many wedding advice pages offer a free, easy to edit wedding webpage host. Some even offer your guests a way to RSVP online. The Knot offers a nice wedding webpage host page with an RSVP tool and a guestbook tool. This is free to use when you sign up for a free account. On the other hand, The Knot webpages give you a long wedding website name (http://www.theknot.com/ourwedding/yourname), which might look a little long on your Save the Date cards. You can purchase a domain name (www.johnandsam.com) for about 20 dollars a year. They also offer a limited amount of templates, so you may have trouble finding a color and design you like.

Eweddings hosts free wedding websites. The website address is long again, but they have a few more themes to choose from. On the other hand, the themes are less personal. Once you pick a theme, you can only customize the color. The rest is done by filling out form boxes, which is really simple, but allows you less control over the look of your page. The great thing about Eweddings is that they offer some really neat frills. Online RSVP, polls (“Where should we go on our honeymoon?), quizes (“Where did Joe purpose to me?”), music, photo slide show, wedding countdown and more. You could probably spend hours playing around with this page without getting frustrated.

For the Technology Whiz

If you want a fully customized page, try a free host like www.yola.com. You can make your own banner by using a Royalty-Free image, insert your own pictures, and add free gadgets. You could use the ideas from other wedding website hosts to find out what subpages and gadgets to include, but create your own, unique look.
