If you have purchased a personal domain (i.e. www.dickandjane.com) for your wedding website and want it to forward to your WeddingWire website, you will need to go through the Domain Provider (GoDaddy, 1and1, Register.com, etc). Your domain provider should have a setting that you enable to forward your personal domain to your WeddingWire wedding website. Within WeddingWire, you can also get your own custom URL. For example, http://www.weddingwire.com/leeandlynn It is recommended that you have a custom URL for your wedding website to make the forwarding as easy as possible
You can obtain your personal WeddingWire wedding website URL by following these simple steps:
- Log in to your account
- Click on the "My Wedding Website" tool under "My Wedding"
- Click on the "Settings" tab
- Choose your personal URL under the "Personal Website URL" area
- Scroll to the bottom and click 'save' when completed
*Please keep in mind that we do not offer Domain Name Servers (DNS); you will have to forward your website to the custom URL you created on WeddingWire. Please see your Domain Provider's support center for detailed instructions.
**ALSO NOTE: The WeddingWire system does not support masking. When your guests access the URL that you purchased, they will be correctly redirected to your wedding website, but the WeddingWire URL will not be hidden 5. How do I use the RSVP tool?
