Why Have a Wedding Website?

Are you wondering whether you really need a wedding website? The answer, of course, is that you don’t *need* to do anything that doesn’t suit you and your partner.

If you are thinking of having a website for your nuptials, though, they can be a great way to keep guests up-to-date on what’s what.

Lots of sites now let you build in things like guest lists (so you can track your RSVPs), details of your gift list (or your preferences, if you're not having a list) and accommodation recommendations for your guests.

The other thing lots of wedding websites offer is a personalised email address. This is great if you’re doing most of the coordination of your big day yourself, as you can keep all your ‘wedmin’ away from your regular inbox.

Free Wedding Websites

If you’d rather save your pennies for other things, then a free wedding website is the perfect option.

Just because they’re free doesn’t mean they offer a sub-standard service – all of the below give great results and include everything you’ll need to communicate with your guests.

1. Hitched

 
We don't want to toot our own horn but we reckon the Hitched wedding website creator is pretty awesome and easy to use. Plus, it's free!
 
Here's what you can expect when you use the Hitched Wedding Website builder: 
  • You can easily create surveys, making it easy to ask guests about anything from allergies and song recommendations, to accommodation and transport
  • There are plenty of stylish designs to choose from
  • You have the option to purchase a premium design pack should you want to upgrade
  • You can create your own blog - this is great for wedding updates, or a fun way to capture your planning journey
  • You can make pages private while you're working on them or set up password-protected pages - ideal for messages for the wedding party that you don't want everyone to see!
  • Oh, and you can create your own customisable URL too...

 

 

2. With Joy

 

Out of all the free wedding websites there are, With Joy is probably our favourite (okay, joint favourite with our own!). For absolutely no investment on your part they provide a really premium service, with a fully customisable template.

Highlights for us include:

  • Beautiful designs, with a choice of using your own colours, fonts and photos
  • Digital RSVPs, so you can track your guestlist online
  • Wedding party introductions, so you can highlight who is who
  • An app for all of your guests to access

If you’re looking for a package with elements above and beyond the essentials, then you might want to consider paying a little bit for a wedding website.

Wedding websites with fees often include more elements and sometimes have a wider variety of design options – which is perfect if you’ve gone for a strong theme. The below are our favourite wedding websites with fees.
