Consult any wedding planning checklist and you'll see that creating a wedding website is one of the first planning tasks you should tackle after getting engaged. A personalized wedding website is the best place to share your engagement story, as well as important information like day-of logistics, your registry, lodging and travel accommodations. Plus, you can even add fun details like wedding party bios, your love story or engagement photos. Since it's the main source of information for your wedding, guests will be looking for your wedding website as soon as you announce your nuptials.

I've been writing about weddings for nearly two decades, and still believe the wedding website is one of the most important innovations that's hit the industry—ever. I've seen a lot of wedding websites over the years, both for family and friends, as well as in my own research. The good news is that there are lots of wedding website builders out there—but with so many programs out there, it can be overwhelming to decide which company offers the best wedding website. Not to worry: We've done the heavy lifting for you by rounding up the best wedding website builders of 2023, along with their prices, custom domain capabilities and more. Check out our list of the best wedding websites below to find the option that's most suitable for your needs.

1. The Knot Wedding Website

Our Take: Not to toot our own horn, but we're the most trusted wedding brand out there. As such, we have the best wedding website tool. If you want a wedding website that's free, easy to set up and provides a large selection of designer themes and planning features, The Knot is for you.

Designed For: Anyone! It's true—we may be a little partial to our own wedding website service, but with good reason: It's totally free and easy to use, integrated with The Knot App and planning tools, and has beautiful designs for every style, making it the best wedding website builder.

Price: Free

Custom Domain Capability: You can purchase a custom domain for one year for $20.

What Couples Love:

  • The Knot has a vast selection of free, professionally designed templates complete with modern layouts and full-width imagery. You can also match your invitations and paper goods to your website design for a seamless look.
    It's super easy to set up—within minutes, you can have yours up and running on your phone browser, computer or with our easy-to-use All-In-One Wedding Planning app.
  • Cash and experience gifts, as well as retail products, all live on The Knot Registry, which will automatically sync to your website. Your registry page will show all of your gifts to guests at once so they don't have to visit separate sites—they can buy directly from The Knot Registry Store.
  • Since The Knot has every tool and product that you'd ever need to help you plan your wedding, it's easy to have everything under one roof since our wedding websites are integrated into our tools. Plus, we're always working on making improvements and adding new designs.
  • You can even manage and track RSVPs using the app and get RSVP push notifications for easy updates.
  • Guests can ask questions through their RSVP response on our online form.
  • Using your website dashboard, you can find hotels that offer discounted room blocks near your venue.
  • You have the unique option to let guests see who else is attending your wedding.
  • A messaging hub on your site allows you to communicate with guests via email or SMS texts.
  • You can set custom privacy controls, including a password and hiding from search engines.
  • More perks include personalized URLs, sharing features to easily distribute your wedding website and the ability to make your site feel like you. Add a photo timeline, GIFs, Q&A's and livestream information to customize your site.

2. Squarespace Wedding Website

Our Take: Given that it doesn't have as many wedding-related tools as other sites, Squarespace could be a little too expensive for couples looking to save. But, you'll get a professional-looking site and a custom domain for your money.

Designed For: The couple that cares about design and tech and wants more customization ability. This is the closest thing to coding the site yourself.

Price: $12 a month for 12 months, or $16 month-to-month

Custom Domain Capability: All annual plans receive a free custom domain for one year. Additional domains range from $20-$70.

What Couples Love:

  • It's the most professional-looking site you're going to get without hiring a designer.
  • You can customize pretty much every single element and add a password.
  • You can view updates as you make them (instead of having to preview your site separately), which makes customizing super intuitive.

3. WeddingWire

Our Take: It's a no-frills option that offers the essentials.

Designed For: Couples who want a free wedding website that comes with other planning tools.

Price: Free

Custom Domain Capability: You can purchase a custom domain for $24 for one year or $35 for two years.

What Couples Love:

  • They offer a custom background photo template.
  • You can easily customize the colors and fonts on your site.
  • It automatically integrates with other digital planning tools.
  • WeddingWire offers easy hotel integration that recommends nearby hotels for guests that you can display on your site and lets you book room blocks.
  • A new feature allows you to add a countdown to your wedding date.
  • Add-ons like surveys, quizzes and a contact form help guests engage with your site and communicate with you directly.
  • You can hide pages on the site, password protect it, or hide it from search engines.
  • You'll be able to create and edit your wedding site on a computer or on the WeddingWire app.

4. Wix

Our Take: Wix offers templates that are fun and modern, and you can easily customize them with a click-and-drag editor. But if you don't want a big ad at the top of your site, you're going to have to pay extra. Plus, it'll be harder to easily help guests RSVP or shop your registry through your site—you won't find any wedding-specific tools here.

Designed For: The couple that wants a customizable site that they don't have to build from scratch.

Price: Free

Custom Domain Capability: $14 a month for the combo plan, which includes a custom domain.

What Couples Love:

  • The photo uploader is very easy to use.
  • A click-and-drag editor allows you to update in real time.
  • The layouts are modern, minimalist and chic.
  • You get a free custom domain when you upgrade to a paid plan.
  • Your site is hidden until you publish it, and a password protects specific pages or your whole site.

5. WedSites

Our Take: WedSites is ideal for a couple who wants to invest in a program that'll aid with certain planning tasks. However, the best intuitive planning features (like invitation tracking, guest communication tools and multilingual layouts) translate into higher prices. And, it can take some time and effort to set up and truly customize to your needs.

Designed For: The couple who wants an intuitive wedding website platform that will streamline planning.

Price: Free, or you can purchase the Standard Plan for $99 or the Pro Plan for $199.

Custom Domain Capability: You can purchase your custom domain name from a site like Go Daddy, and forward it to your WedSites wedding website.

What Couples Love:

  • The tools are designed for collaboration, meaning you and your S.O. can work on building your wedding website together.
  • The platform has inclusive language and gender-neutral terminology, something not all the best wedding websites offer.
  • Even the free template includes building blocks specifically designed for weddings, like wedding party bios, a countdown, live streams, and more.

6. Appy Couple

Our Take: Appy Couple is great if you want to do most of your guest communication digitally, and don't mind asking them to download an app for you. It's pricey, and doesn't offer many other benefits or features that other sites do.

Designed For: The couple who wants a wedding app.

Price: $49 for the "boutique" option, or $149 for the "luxury" option.

Custom Domain Capability: If you want a custom ".com" domain for your website, you'll have to pay an additional fee starting at $20.

What Couples Love:

  • The designs are modern and elegant.
  • The features are extensive and interactive.
  • You'll have the option of RSVP alerts and guest messaging.
  • You can send digital save-the-dates that coordinate with your theme.
  • You'll have the option to invite certain guests to specific prewedding events.

7. Minted

Our Take: Minted offers one of the best free wedding websites for a couple looking who want a unique feel, and who cares that their website matches their invites and decor.

Designed For: The couple who's stylish, quality-conscious and cares about coordinating their wedding website design with their stationery.

Price: Free

Custom Domain Capability: A custom domain costs $15 a year.

What Couples Love:

  • The designs are super unique, curated from a community of independent designers.
  • It's easy to use, with a clear and quick start guide.
  • You can "shop your website style" to find invites and decor that match.

8. Bliss & Bone

Our Take: Bliss & Bone's wedding websites offer modern and minimalist designs for a truly unique feel. While there are some cool features, there's no free option and very limited wedding-planning tools.

Designed For: Couples looking for a super-streamlined and contemporary design for their wedding website, and don't need extra planning tools.

Price: Free for the first 7 days, but after that a standard website subscription is $12 per month and a premium is $18 per month.

Custom Domain Capability: Bliss & Bone does not offer custom domains on their site, but you can purchase a domain from a site like Go Daddy and connect it to your wedding website.

What Couples Love:

  • The designs are among the best in the biz, with a minimalist vibe that's very of the moment.
  • The wedding websites are super-customizable—you can move things around, put information on different pages or all on one page, add your own photos and logos, and more—to create a site that feels custom made.
  • You can create your own semi-custom wedding logos and monograms right on the site.
  • Bliss & Bone offers the ability to create a multi-language wedding website.
  • You can send email announcements, reminders and updates to your guests with designs that match your website.
  • Guest list and RSVP management tools are available (but only with a premium subscription).
  • You can buy online or printed invitations and paper productions to match your website for a cohesive look and feel.

9. Riley & Grey

Our Take: This wedding website builder is one of the priciest of the bunch, but it offers a plethora of beautiful templates and a top-notch, interactive RSVP management system.

Designed For: Couples who want a fully customizable, well-designed website and easy-to-use guest management system, and don't mind paying for it.

Price: $35 per month, or $240 for a year

Custom Domain Capability: A custom domain is included in the cost of a Riley & Grey wedding website.

  • Riley & Grey's wedding website builder offers the right balance of structure and flexibility, so the process doesn't feel overwhelming.
