We know that a search on the internet will return many companies, websites and apps where you can create your very own “free wedding website.” As any sensible shopper would do, it’s important to look around and find the best solution for you. Below, we hope to have listed why it makes most sense to let Simple Wedding Websites create the website for your special day.
Clear and complete pricing
The reality is, there is no such thing as a free lunch, and the same goes for “free wedding websites.” Either you have to pay for web hosting, or a personal domain name (as opposed to having a company branded name) to access special features or you simply end up being tied into other products and services that you do not want or need.
With Simple Wedding Websites, there are no surprises in the price.
You get a complete website package with everything included right from the get-go. There are no hidden costs, requests for upgrades or features “only available with a premium account.” You know what you are paying from the beginning and not a penny more. We include a personal domain name and web hosting plus all technical set-up and unlimited revisions.
Your own, totally personal domain name
As unique as you are! As mentioned above, there is no being tied-in to corporate domain names and strange “.companyname.com” endings! We also don’t tie you into any other products or services nor sell or share your data with anyone else.
We do all the work
If you have a wedding planner we can liaise directly with them to get all the necessary info to get your website up and running. If you do not have a planner then you can tell us about your big day in whatever way is most convenient to you, chat with us directly by phone or Skype, email us your plans or fill out our quick template doc and we go from there…
You have enough to think about and get organised without having to become a web developer and designer at the same time! There is no need for you to learn how to set up a website, register (or hide) it from google, design posts, pages or edit photos… Just tell us about your day and your style and we make it happen.
Your style, your way
We offer 3 website “Styles” – A scrolling page, a static page and a gallery block page.
But the theme, colours, fonts and extra touches can be as personal as you want. Want a dramatic, art-deco black and gold theme? No problem! Are your wedding colours springtime florals? You got it! How about an autumn inspired dusky palette? It’s going to look beautiful…
Our e-Invitation service really does set us apart
While many companies offer online RSVPs, we go the extra mile to double check your guests have received your invitation and return their response in a timely fashion!
We let you know how many and which of your guests have received your email invitation, who has opened it and who have sent their RSVP. We will save you from having to cross-reference lists of invited guests and lists of responses. In fact not only will we let you know who hasn’t responded but we will also chase them up for you too! All of this is taken care of with a bespoke designed email invitation that matches your website and wedding style.

The gift list!
Requesting a contribution to your bank account is a very common wedding gift list option. With Simple Wedding Websites your guests can make secure, online contributions to your bank account via debit or credit card in just a few clicks. Statistically, offering this option means you are likely to receive both more and also bigger contributions than asking for traditional cash in a card. Isn’t that something useful!
We also work with honeyfund.com where you can create truly unique wedding gift lists and ask your guests to purchase special parts of your honeymoon (or anything else you are saving for.) We can of course also offer links/log-in to a traditional, wedding gift list from a shop or online store.

We support you every step of the way
We will check-in with you regularly to make sure you are happy at every stage of development and will update your site as necessary when things get finalised or there are changes to plans. We are with you every step of the way to make sure you get exactly the site you want that will look great and function perfectly.
