Everyone seems to be doing it and initially both my fiancé and I dismissed the phenomenon of the wedding website as a fad. But for other friends wedding I have found myself using their wedding websites to find the location of the wedding, accommodation recommendation and the link to the gift list. It is a handy place to store lots of important information for the wedding so we decided to create a simple site for ourselves.
There are many free wedding website sites with ready made templates which make it easy to set up a site without too much fiddling.
We wanted to make our website a little more personal and so a friend had recommended iWeb to me. Since neither my fiancé and I are technical people I was a bit worried that it would be too tricky and too much effort to get to grips with designing a website. But though I don’t want to sound like an Apple representative, with iWeb it is so easy! It is literally a case of experimenting for a bit and then you just load a template and drag photos onto the page, type your info, choose your font etc. How much you manipulate and personalise the website is up to you.
This is a little preview of part of our website – a work in progress.
There is a fantastic step by step guide on how to create a wedding website using iWeb by Mrs. Cupcake on Wedding Bee.
Also here is how one bride created her own website after reading the how-to on Wedding Bee.
There are some great example of wedding websites out there to give you ideas for your own site

Today is the 25th anniversary of Tetris. To celebrate here are a selection of wedding cakes made out of pure geek!
It was given to a Tetris fan by his sister and friends who left spaces so that he would have to solve the puzzle before cutting the cake. Very sweet!
A giant console! Apparently the groom is a big Nintendo fan…would never have guessed!
Of course its not just the grooms who love their games consoles…
Sometimes the couple love of computers equals their love for each other. The bride and grooms here have decided to go for traditional cakes with geek-inspired wedding toppers
Do you prefer paper to LCD? Snail mail to email? You wordy couples shouldn’t feel left out. There’s a wedding cake for all the types of geeks out there.
Get the cake here
This wedding cake inspired by the Discworld series of books by Terry Pratchett is incredible.
Kudos to the bride’s mum who made it.
My fiancé loves Star Wars. I wouldn’t let him have an ewok village wedding cake though.
There were 50 small chocolate cakes to serve as Ewok huts. Hans Solo and Princess Leia are on the bridge of the cake. The bride writes: “Mr. Hum was insistent on Han holding his blaster so he picked some fresh wildflowers from his father’s backyard for Leia to hold. Plus, he made the Ewoks all do silly celebratory dances which totally made me smile.” I love it!
The cutest geek cake ever?
