The Best Wedding Website Builders
Creating your own personal wedding website has become something of a standard for couples getting married – who can deal with sending the same emails over and over and fielding texts about the ceremony venue on the morning of your wedding? But if you search Google for ‘wedding website builders‘ (try saying that ten times in a row) you will easily get a few million results, with all of them offering users similar features, such as custom themes, domains and RSVP options. With many offering the same features, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, so we went over all the options on the market and picked out the 11 Best Wedding Website Builders for you.
What is a Wedding Website?
A wedding website is a website dedicated to your wedding, where guests can access all the information they need in advance of the big day. They generally include: a space for your story, your wedding-day schedule, information on your gift list, details on your venue, how to get there, accommodation, and a RSVP function. Most of our favourite wedding website builders offer all the standard features, but they do differ in style, cost, and usability and choice of designs and functions.

While we’re big advocates for Google Sheets when it comes to wedding planning, we were a little more apprehensive about Google Sites, the company’s own website builder. A blank canvas, with some simple fonts and themes, this might be a great resource for someone who’s knows exactly how they want their site to look (and how to make it happen), though for novices, it can be a fiddly to put together compared to other dedicated tools.
Use this one if: You’re a devoted Google user who doesn’t mind spending a bit of time figuring out how it all works.
