In the introduction to this series, we covered the rationale for building a custom wedding website, as well as the requirements that we laid out for ourselves.
Now that we know what we need, it’s time to choose the right tools for the job. From our previously set requirements, the following items stood out as important for what we choose here:
- Free or very cheap hosting with a custom domain and SSL
- Invitees must be able to
- Sign in with their email address and no password (magic link email)
- Receive automated emails for their invitation and RSVP confirmation
- All significant information must come from a protected database
