Best Free Wedding Websites

Do you know a bride who planned her wedding before wedding websites were a thing? Nowadays it’s almost impossible to imagine getting organized and ready for your big day without one. Wedding websites are a must for any newly engaged couple — no coding necessary. Not only do they feature your love story, photos, and introduce your bridal party and groomsmen, but the best wedding sites also provide hotel information, registry details and other logistics for your guests, all in one place. You can build your own wedding website via a variety of companies that offer website design tools specifically for managing invitations, RSVPs, travel information and more. These sites, like the wedding itself, are a celebration of the bride and groom’s creativity and personality. From The Knot to Zola, we’ve rounded up examples of the best wedding websites for managing your “I do” details.

The Knot Wedding Website

We like that The Knot’s wedding website designer is easy to use, plus we’re impressed with its many features. The mobile-friendly template includes gift registry management, along with Google, Facebook and Instagram synchronization. Another impressive tool is the ability to find which hotels offer discounted room blocks near your venue, plus all your registries are synced automatically in one place so your guests don't have to visit separate sites. Bonus: You can tastefully seek cash and experience gifts via The Knot Newlywed Fund. (Free or $20 for a custom domain; theknot.com)

Joy Wedding Website

Relatively new to the fold, Joy is currently 100 percent free. It allows for multiple admins, which is great if you need your fiancé or bridesmaids to help you out, plus its app works on both iPhone and Android devices. For the ultra-organized bride, Joy allows you to import guest lists created in Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets. Bonus: You can introduce your guests to your wedding party with photos and bios. After the wedding, guests can upload photos to your private moments timeline and make comments. This free wedding website is truly a joy to use (see what we did there?). (Free; withjoy.com)

Riley & Grey Wedding Website

Does the name Riley & Grey sound ultra posh to you? That’s because it is. This luxury wedding website builder is perfect for high-end weddings. It is the most customizable site we’ve seen, which is a plus for those design aficionados who want to tightly manage their aesthetic beyond the already glamorous templates. The site boasts premium features, including a custom domain, foreign language translation and an RSVP management system that tracks guests’ preferences, plus sends reminders and messages to individual guests. ($35/month or $240/year; rileygrey.com)

Zola Wedding Website

Zola already has a gift registry that allows brides and grooms to pick from awesome brands and partner stores, so it has a built-in edge. Zola’s free wedding website builder is equally impressive, beginning with the drag-and-drop website builder tool that is super easy to use. We love that Zola offers a whopping 167 templates in every chic style imaginable, plus save-the-dates and invitations to match. It also integrates easily with the Zola registry so that guests don’t have to leave the site. And the site manages the guest list, reminding people to send in RSVPs so you can manage the head count.

Basic Invite Wedding Website

Basic Invite offers an array of charming wedding invitations, and now it’s added a new free wedding website tool too. Naturally, you can coordinate with your Basic Invite wedding stationery. Then there are website features that we love, like the ability to collect mailing addresses and accept digital RSVPs. To be truly matchy-matchy — which we adore for any wedding — you can print place cards for each of your digital RSVPs using the same design theme as your invitation. (Free; basicinvite.com)

AppyCouple Wedding Website

As the name AppyCouple implies, this website boasts a custom wedding app that you and your guests can use by downloading it to your phones. With hundreds of gorgeous website designs to choose from, the AppyCouple app and site will coordinate your e-stationery and print invitations. Bonus: Within the design, there are 14 options for pages you can turn on or off, including hotels, affiliated events, RSVPs, travel info, key people, gallery, registry, photos, guestbook, countdown and toasts. ($49 or $149, depending on features; appycouple.com)

Minted Wedding Website

Another fabulous contender in the wedding website world is Minted. Just like Minted’s amazing stationery offerings, its wedding websites are aesthetically pleasing thanks to unique designs curated from a community of independent designers. Minted’s fun features are nothing to sneeze at, either. We love the ability to spotlight your bridal party, choosing from one of 14 categories, including mother of the bride, honor attendant and best man. These pages can include photos and a brief bio about each person. Minted’s basic wedding website designs are free. For $20, the premium option features include a photo gallery, a custom URL and a password-protected site. (Free or $20 for premium; minted.com)

Wix Wedding Website

If you’ve ever used Wix to design a regular website, then you know how easy it is to use because of its drag-and-drop tool. This full website builder has added a wedding category with a free option. Because Wix has been in the business for so long, it offers a staggering array of apps and plug-ins (for example, you can even keep guests abreast of the weather forecast for the day). One recommendation: Upgrade from the free version to the paid premium plan for $7 a month so that you can use your own custom website address and escape the annoying Wix banner ads. The premium plan also gives you unlimited bandwidth, plenty of storage and one hour of videos you can upload, so it’s worth it. (Free or $7/month for premium; wix.com)

Wedding Wire Website

Raise your hand if you’re the type of bride who gets granular with the details. Yes? Lucky you; you’re in for a low-stress wedding, especially if you use the many features available with the Wedding Wire website designer. There are three features that we absolutely love: the vendor manager, the budget tool and the seating chart. The vendor manager alone offers the ability to comparison shop via pricing and reviews, message vendors with questions, keep notes on each vendor and then hire your favorites. Another fabulous feature? The customizable “Travel” section, which includes a widget powered by Fly.com so that your guests can seek flights to and from your wedding location through your website. Considering it’s a free wedding website, Wedding Wire is a pretty sweet product. (Free; weddingwire.com)

Squarespace Wedding Website

Squarespace has been a leader in the general website design category for a long time, and there are many reasons for this, so we’re glad the company jumped into the wedding website space. The sleek and chic templates are impressive, plus you can customize almost every aspect of your wedding website: change the background image, typography, header options or tweak the layout. Without hiring a techie to build your website, this is the closest you'll get to a professional look. ($12/month; squarespace.com)
