Creating a website for your wedding is an easy way to keep your guests informed about all the details of your event without having multiple email threads, text messages, or phone calls. It’s also a fantastic way to get your guests excited about your event and help them prepare for your big day!
When you sign up for WedSites, you'll automatically get your own customizable subdomain. If you've also purchased your own custom domain name, we can help you forward it to your wedding website. Most registrars offer free domain forwarding, also known as a redirect.
By enabling forwarding on your domain, you’ll be able to share your custom URL (ex: yournames.com) with your guests and on your invitation. When anyone enters your URL into their browser, they’ll be redirected to your wedding website to find all the information and RSVP online.
Where should I purchase my domain?
If you haven’t already purchased a custom domain, we recommend that you purchase it from a reputable domain registrar like namecheap.com, GoDaddy, or Bluehost, which all offer free domain forwarding.
How do I forward my domain?
Each domain registrar has a different interface and method for forwarding domains. If you have already purchased a custom domain, please search the registrar’s support docs for “domain forwarding” or “redirect to” instructions.
To save you the trouble, here are the instructions provided by some of the most popular domain registrars used by our couples!
