Want a wedding website but not sure where to start?
What is the purpose of a wedding website?
A wedding website is a website devoted to your wedding, where guests can learn all they need to know ahead of time. They often feature a part for your storey, a wedding day itinerary, information about your gift list, information about your location, routes, and lodgings, and an RSVP function. While most of our favourite wedding website builders offer all of the typical capabilities, they differ in terms of style, affordability, usability, and design and function options.

Joy is not only a cool (and incredibly simple to use!) wedding website builder, but it also allows you to create your own wedding app. Joy allows you to create a guest list and manage RSVPs, as well as share information about your wedding, bridal party, and gift registry.

While we’re big fans of Google Sheets for wedding planning, we were sceptical of Google Sites, the company’s own website builder. A blank canvas with some basic fonts and themes, this may be an excellent resource for someone who knows exactly how they want their site to look (and how to make it happen), though it can be a little fiddly to put together for novices in comparison to other dedicated tools.
This is the one to use if: You are a devoted Google user who is willing to spend some time figuring out how it all works.
Visit sites.google.com for additional information.
