So, you just got engaged. (Yay!) You let everyone know on Facebook and Instagram, but now it’s time to set up a more permanent website to tell your story. Nowadays, there are a TON of options to set up a free wedding website where you can offer information about your relationship and proposal, your favorite photos, information about the wedding and links to your wedding registry. Here are a few of our favorite free wedding websites to get you and your soon-to-be spouse started on the web.

This is definitely the most popular free wedding website for couples, and we can see why. It’s easy to set up and easy to customize, meaning you can get your page up and running in minutes – just the way you want it. Every template is mobile friendly, so your guests can check out your page on any platform – plus there are over 100+ to choose from. One easy-to-navigate registry list pulls in gifts from each of your registries, and you can even set up a donation to charity through The Knot. Plus, they have a surplus of other services to choose from including wedding checklists and budget tools.
We love Wedding Wire for its vendor recommendations and all things wedding-related, so it’s no surprise that it made our list for one of the best free wedding websites. Even though we have to admit that some of their themes are a bit lackluster, we do like the new, photo backdrop theme that allows you to upload your own photo. So, if you’re a little creative here, you can definitely self-upgrade the features. If you’re not the photo type, there are another 400+ to choose from. Plus, we love that they partner with designers like Vera Wang to introduce fashion-forward themes that hit the design high-note. Also a feature worth noting? The customizable “Travel” section that includes a widget powered by Fly.com, where your guests can actually search for flights to and from your wedding destination, directly through your website.
A partner with online wedding invitation company Wedding Paper Divas, Nearlyweds brings you a free wedding website that, like the versions mentioned above, can be customized based on your interests. While the designs aren’t super dynamic, it does offer all of the information your guests need in one place. Plus, designs match stationery from Wedding Paper Divas if you’re looking for a cohesive experience. Features we love include the ability for guests to RSVP for multiple events (including your rehearsal dinner, reception and brunch) from the site, as well as a blog page that lets you update guests along the way and share your wedding planning process. We also love how you can set a password, so not everyone in the world can see your story.
Though this free wedding website e isn’t for everyone, we wanted to add it to the list because it definitely feels like the most modern/social media savvy of the group. Once you sign up for a Weduary website via Facebook, your guests will receive a private Facebook notification that they’ve been invited to your wedding. Once they’ve logged in with their own Facebook account, they can get all the details about your wedding, check out who’s coming, share stories about you and your partner, and if they’re single, they can hang out in the ‘Flirt’ section, which shows them the other single people they should meet. Bonus? It’s all private, meaning only people who have been invited can see your site. We also love that you can set up a registry page that not only includes a traditional registry but also a link to donate to charity and a custom registry with links to any gifts you choose.
The form and functionality of this website makes it one of our favorites. While browsing through the designs, we were pleased to see a request page, where you can ask your guests things like “Can you send us your address?” “What makes you dance?” and “Do you have old photos of us?” We love how easy it is to communicate with your guests here. Also a major plus? Video! Definitely take advantage of this feature to incorporate your proposal video, a favorite song, or a YouTube favorite just to make your guests laugh.
