Many couples feel that having a wedding website is an extravagance that they just can't afford. We disagree - a wedding website can be a great planning tool and after the wedding a keepsake of all your hard work.
There are a number of online companies that offer templates for your wedding site. These templates are easy to use - just fill in the forms with your wedding details and they are uploaded in to a site. You are limited to the designs available and may be restricted to the number of pages your site has, but we have found them to be more than adequate.
Our favorite online template site is Wedpagedesign.com. A basic site is less than $3 per month, and they have a good selection of templates to choose from.
Pages you should include in your wedding website.
Here is where you will welcome visitors to your site and give them an over view of the wedding day.
