WordPress.com is well known for site creation, and e-commerce websites are no different. You can choose from a predesigned professional template and add your own touch to create a site that’s as unique as your special day. WordPress integrates with other software, including a cash app that lets you take monetary gifts. You can also insert photos, add checklists, include maps, and provide contact information for RSVPs. The site has thousands of add-ons, such as a calendar to create a timeline of the event or a countdown to help you keep track of how many days you have before the big day.
A basic WordPress site is free, which is ideal for those planning smaller events or who want to keep things simple. For a premium site with a custom domain, you can expect to pay at least $4 a month when billed yearly. A demo is available so you can see how the site works before you commit to a monthly payment.
