A Free Wedding Website Made for You

The Knot

The same things you would on any other wedding website! (The only diff is it’s all completely on us!) Think: Your wedding details, RSVP info and a wedding hashtag—all in a beautiful Wedding Website template practically made for you. Your free Wedding Website is the best way to rally your guests for your day, hands down.

Having a destination wedding? Perfect, share all the logistics about your rehearsal dinner, nuptials, etc. directly on your site.

With so much customization available, you can pick what you need and skip what you don’t. You can even add a custom URL with whatever domain name you like best or to match your wedding theme.

We’re not above a humble brag from time to time, so we’ll just come out and say it: Yes, we have the best wedding website builder! With simple-to-use, yet robust functionality, we’ve helped millions of couples plan their wedding and we’re pretty on-point when it comes to giving couples what they love and need most.

Of course you can! We’re always adding new Wedding Website templates designed with modern couples (like you) in mind; feel free to switch things up anytime. Make sure your site vibes with who you are as a couple by customizing the font and colors and adding photos—even picking a custom domain.

Literally minutes. Our website builder makes it super easy to create your URL, add all your details and personalize our Wedding Website templates. You can quickly turn your engagement photos into a photo gallery and add important details about wedding events, your wedding party, wedding registry and even wedding day FAQs like dress code—in a heartbeat. And if you have questions, our customer service team always has your back.

Your registry, exactly how you want it

The Knot

Nothing in registry should be unnecessarily complicated. So, The Knot has created a proprietary (read: one-of-a-kind) technology designed to make it super simple for couples to see, manage and share every wedding gift registry in a single place.

We’ve also exclusively teamed up with over 20 retailers like Bed Bath and Beyond, Amazon, Crate & Barrel and Target. We work behind the scenes to sync up with our partners so your wedding registry is always up to date. Plus, your universal registry items, funds and experiences appear alongside your retailer gifts.

Wedding registries (and weddings for that matter) aren’t one-size-fits-all. This is your day, your gifts. Add, arrange and share whatever, and however you want.

It’s pretty much becoming the norm to register for cash gifts, so don’t feel awkward! Your guests want to give you whatever will make you smile—even if that gift is cash. Because really, it’s not about the money, it’s about what it’s going toward.

The (even more) awesome thing about our cash wedding registry is that it’s easy to share with guests how you’re using it, plus you can add it to your Wedding Website. Home renovations? Sure thing. A dream honeymoon? Love it. A puppy fund? Cooking classes? Your guests have it covered, and will be more than happy to do so.

Think of a cash and experience registry as the way to get gifted the things you can’t exactly pluck from a shelf (hello, home renos!). Tons of couples register for things they need (or just really want) like a honeymoon, down payment and even date nights to keep the spark alive after the I dos are done. Whatever your thing is, we have it.

The Wedding Planning App for Couples

The Knot

Fall in love at first website! Start yours to download guests on the what, when and where with our Wedding Planner app. You have a lot (of good things!) going on. Sit back and enjoy them. Just tell us what you want and our wedding planner app will pull it all together with a day-of timeline.

Psst … It’s OK if you don’t have all of the answers. We’ll figure it out along the way together.

  • Swipe right (or left) on wedding style images
  • Go to ‘Take Me to My Wedding Vision’ on the wedding planning app to see your results
  • Check out your Wedding Vision for photo inspo, color palette ideas and vendor recs!

Browse and save favorite “Recommended Vendors” from your Wedding Vision, or take a peek at new ones in the vendors tab.

Tip: You can contact a vendor from The Knot App simply by hitting the call or message button. Just make sure you have ‘Share Your Vision’ checked off so they can see your wedding style.

Head to the Wedding Website tab to start a Registry with a few couple-approved brands or check out The Newlywed Fund by The Knot. If you already have one, click “Add an Existing Registry”.

Tip: Use the Universal Registry feature when shopping on your phone. When you share with The Knot Wedding Planner App, it’ll automatically add items to your Registry.

A Free Wedding Guest List Made for You

The Knot

You can think of the Guest List Manager as a spreadsheet—only better. You can actually import existing spreadsheets, so you don’t have to re-do everything. (You’re welcome.) You can also add phone contacts, making it easy to organize your guest list on the go.

Nope! Whether you’re having a bach party, engagement party or rehearsal dinner, our guest list manager was made to organize it all—so you don’t have to.

How much will you love our wedding Guest List Manager? Let us count the ways—and the attendees. When you receive RSVPs on your Wedding Website, they’ll also show up on your dashboard and in the app!

You don’t. Whenever friends or family switch up their responses, the Guest List Manager is on it for you. New meal selection? We’ve got you. Bringing a different plus one? Added.

Yep! Track gifts on the guest list dashboard by quickly jotting them down and checking them off. With so much excitement in the air, it’s easy to forget who you’ve thanked and who still needs a note, but the wedding guest list organizer will help you remember with a quick tap in the app or click of a button.

The guest list manager is like a wedding guest list excel spreadsheet that is constantly updating automatically. It pulls info like RSVPs, meal choices and gifts and syncs it for you so you can peep everything in a single glance.
