Planning a wedding is a whirlwind of emotions, and having a website to help you out on some of the more tedious tasks can be a lifesaver. While you can always start from scratch with a DIY wedding site from Wix, Squarespace, WordPress, etc, here are 7 wedding website examples curated with your special day in mind.
There are several free options to choose from and a few paid sites to help you bring your wedding planning dreams to life.
With Joy, you can easily create everything needed for your wedding planning process. This includes save the dates, invitations, RSVPs, registries, and more. One of my favorite features is the ability to input personalized schedules so your bridal party will always know what to do and where to go without feeling like they have to bother the bride or groom with a billion questions. Your bridal party and beyond can each have multiple things to RSVP to, rather than having to send out multiple invitations, it can all be on one clean interface.
The Knot gives you the keys to create and bring your beautiful love story to life in a digital world. You get to start off by sharing the story of how you met your fiance and the life you have built together so far. You’ll be able to hold all your registries under one roof so you can add anything and everything you want. The Knot also allows you to easily live stream your wedding, making it possible for your guests from near and far to feel involved even if they couldn’t physically make your special day.
Choose your design, add your registry, add traditional pieces with hard-copy invitations, and save the dates. If you choose to send your invitations by snail mail, Zola offers competitive pricing on the invites and includes free addressing and envelopes. If you’ve ever sent out a large number of physical invitations of any kind, you know that having them addressed beforehand would be the ultimate time, and hand-cramp, saver.
Minted has a different feel than other wedding websites. Their website templates are designed by independent artists, making sure your website and invitations stand out in the crowd. Minted’s interface works well with smartphones. This makes it easy to have your wedding planning in your back pocket whenever you need it. It’s also helpful for your bridal party and friends to have the events they have or need to RSVP to.
Wedding Wire is another one of our wedding website examples. It is completely free despite having access to a mobile app, seat chart builder, budget and cost guides, color generator, and more. Everything you could possibly need for your wedding is in one place. Plus, it even has a built-in checklist for you to keep track of. A personal favorite tool of mine is the hotel block help widget. It serves almost as a travel agent to find the best deals on hotels near your venue for multiple guests.
With 3 different pans, Lite, Standard, and Pro, Websites allow you to go a step further with customization. Whether you want a website that does all or just a little, you can find it with 1 of these 3 plans.
This plan offers access to all templates, registry links, 12 months of free domain hosting, and endless support via email and chat. A clean and simple layout to give your wedding guests all the information they need to attend.
Standard: $99 (one-time)
Upgrading to the standard plan gets you paperless invitations and RSVP forms for the events leading up to and including the wedding. It will also separate your events into different RSVP groups. You have the option to add your partner as a user, and will be upped to 24 months of free domain hosting.
Pro: $199 (one-time)
The highest tier will grant you access to additional help widgets. This includes a seating chart builder, reports, checklists, multiple language settings, and up to 5 users.
Riley and Grey
Riley and Grey comes with 2 payment options at $35 per month by going month-to-month. Or a one-time payment of $240 for a year. The features do not change no matter which plan you choose. They both included a custom domain, mobile app, as well as white glove professional help wherever needed. For planning features, it has RSVP categorization and keeps addresses for future use, i.e. thank you cards. Plus it has tons of different design avenues and a full rundown of print hard copy options available.
You now have a firm grasp of the features typically given from these wedding website examples. After asking yourself what you want to see in the planning process, you are sure to find the best website for your big day.
