    You said, Yes. Now what? Google it.The Internet has become a great place for cou-

    ples to plan their weddings and create websites that guests can visit for information. Some particularly popular sites have RSVP and budget management capabilities, checklists, vendor lists and some even

    have honeymoon booking information. All offer a couple the ability to create a website with date and location information, photos and a wide variety of themes.

    Weddings are hard enough to plan without hav-ing to make sure your 100-plus guests are able to receive all the important information, said wed-dingjojo.com founder Parker Newman. By having a

    wedding website, you can just direct people to a single website to answer all of their questions.

    Weddingwebsites.com compares these sites and ranks them on star values. Their No. 1 is wed-simple.com, which earned five out of five stars. This site has so many features its impossible to name them all. Besides the typical photo, check-list and management capabilities, wedsimple.com will send you reminders, offer music suggestions, help you plan your tables, is advertisement-free and offers over 80 website design options. You can even use the site after the wedding to keep track of who sent which gifts and whether you mailed them a thank you.

    Unfortunately, using the site isnt free. The price varies depending on which package you choose. You can pay $10 monthly or up to $80 for an unlimited package that will stay online until two months after your wedding. Weddingwebsites.com said Wedsimple is worth the money and the larger the package you buy, the bigger sav-ings you get. But for the cash-strapped, there are other options.

    Mywedding.com was given 2.5 out of five stars by Weddingwebsites, but the site is completely free and has many valuable features. The site offers vendor information in your area, tips and suggestions for planning, etiquette and foods, as well as honeymoon booking information. Mywedding has many designs for web pages, which are all free. The drawback on this site is you wont have quite as many features and not as much web space.

    For the couple not looking to plan online, but who do want a website to share information with their guests, weddingjojo.com is the place to go. The site is free for the most basic package and $14.99 per month for the full slice. There is no

    yearly obligation, unlike some sites. Weddingjojo.com takes pride in providing fully customizable, unique and modern themes, Newman said. Your website on Weddingjojo will have RSVP fea-tures, a guestbook and registry sections along-side the usual photos and information.

    While a website is a quick, easy way for guests to access important news about your wedding, Newman said there are still some traditions to uphold.

    While we hope in the future paper invitations can be substituted for online ones, we still feel sending out invitations by mail is important, he said.
