Currently, we cannot transfer ownership of domains purchased through WeddingWire. Once a Premium Domain is purchased within our system, it can only be hosted through WeddingWire. 

If you have purchased a Premium Membership within your WeddingWire account, you can set up a custom domain with the steps below:

  • Login to your WeddingWire account at
  • Hover your cursor over 'Planning Tools' and click 'Wedding Website'
  • Click 'Settings' from the website editor toolbar
  • Click 'Choose Domain' on the left side of the screen
  • Enter your desired domain and click the 'Check Availability' button
  • Click the blue 'Choose' button to confirm

Once you have selected your URL, it may take a few hours for your domain to be active and visible. You will receive an email once it's up and running!

Please note, checking availability of a domain during the purchase process does not select your desired domain. 

If you would like to keep your domain active, please follow the pop up instructions that will appear within your wedding website editor up to 30 days before your domain expires. If you have any trouble with your domain renewal, please reach out to us at as soon as possible. We are currently unable to retrieve domains that have expired in our system.


We currently do not support https website security for custom domains. Please note, the only information requested on WeddingWire wedding websites are guests' names from the RSVP tool and comment forms on the wedding website, if enabled. Any registry purchases are handled through the third party retailer site.  For increased website security, we recommend adding a password with the steps below: Login to your WeddingWire account from a computer Hover over 'Planning Tools' and click 'Wedding Website' In the website editor, click the ‘Settings’ tab Scroll down to the ‘Privacy’ section Toggle the ‘Password’ switch to on (the switch will be green when on) Enter your password in both fields, and be sure the ‘Apply to all sections of the wedding website’ box is checked Click ‘Save password’
