3. If you have purchased your domain through a different provider, your domain provider should have a setting which they can enable to forward your personal custom domain to your WeddingWire wedding website.
Things to remember:
- WeddingWire does 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.
- 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.
