A friend of mine is getting hitched so I started compiling the best wedding websites around today. There is a slew of new ones every day too!
Here are the best ones that I’ve seen thus far.
www.weddingwire.com is a newcomer that rivals The Knot with features.
www.nearlyweds.com is yet another new kid on the block with web 2.0 features including a blog and website.
http://ourweddingday.com offers an impressive amount of features. Includes free website.
http://weddingcontrol.com does not have a great interface. Mostly manages the guest list.
www.seeyouthen.com (coming soon) Mostly for sharing everyone’s photos from wedding and reception.
www.bestweddingsites.com lists a ton of wedding resources.
Summation: The ultimate wedding website should allow the happy couple to manage every aspect of their magical day. Not only that, it should allow them to continue running their website as a family website instead of just their wedding website. The key would be to build it upon google’s OpenSocial which would allow you to pick the web parts/services you want from other services such as photo’s from your Flickr account or music from ILike or videos from YouTube, etc. etc.
