8 Free Wedding Websites That Actually Have Gorgeous, Modern Designs

Wedding websites keep everyone up to date with your wedding details, and are a great way to share the excitement of your love story’s milestone! Here are 8 free wedding websites with gorgeous and modern designs so you can get started.

Family and friends always get excited when one of their own is getting married, and wedding websites are a great way to share that excitement—and answer all of their questions about your celebration! No more repeating the proposal story 100 times; simply share it and some snapshots on your wedding website.

It’s a nice way for guests to get to know you a little better, especially if they haven’t got to spend time with you as a couple. Most wedding websites include a page about your story, where you can share photos and tell people how you met, how long you’ve dated, and how he proposed.

Wedding websites are also great for guests to find out more about your wedding. People who lose their invitations will find it extra helpful to have a site to refer to! Include all the important details, such as your full names, your wedding date and event times, your venue, and a photo of yourselves. You can also add helpful details such as contact details for important members of your wedding party, dress code, schedule of events, directions to your venue, or recommendations for things to do and accommodations for out-of-towner guests. Most wedding websites allow you to manage your guest list with online RSVPs too.

Create your wedding website early, so that you can include the URL in your invitations or save-the-dates. Some wedding websites offer matching invitations so that your whole wedding look has a cohesive theme, while others allow colour customisation so that you can create a site in your wedding colours.
