The details are coming together and now is the time to put together your wedding website. Your wedding website will become the hub for your guests to access all your wedding details (event locations, times, dress code, special notes, etc). This can also be a fun way to share your wedding theme with your guests and write about your love story!
There are a variety of platforms available for building a wedding website, depending on your needs, priorities, and desired website functions. Below are my top 3 favorites and the most popular options. Each of these platforms offer templates for your wedding theme, RSVP management, and management wedding registry.
1. The Knot
This is one of the most popular wedding website platforms! It is a classic choice among couples because it offers an abundance of planning resources. The knot.com offers checklists, budget guides, and vendor guides in addition to the website building tools. You can also add customized cash funds as part of your wedding registry. This is the platform my husband and I used and we enjoyed it!

2. With Joy
If you are looking for a user friendly template designer with modern and simple flare, this is the website for you! WithJoy offers one page or multipage website designs and you can edit directly on your phone through their app. You can also view and share photos and stay up-to-date with details on the go. I've been loving the templates and wedding websites that I have seen couples use.
Rated "Best Experience" on Brides
The wedding registry option on Zola is where this platform shines! With their integrated registry , you can pull items from various stores and have them listed under one registry. This allows you to quickly add items and share one link with your guests. Shopping is easy for them since they can stay within one website for their full purchase. They also offer cash funds and zero fees.
