If you want to start a website for your wedding business, then first of all you should collect all information about wedding business. There are many wedding websites on the internet so you should check all sites and get some good ideas on them. After, you should ready design, unique content and good pictures on your wedding site and also buy best and relevant domain for your website.
When your wedding website ready, then you should SEO for your site because of SEO is one of the best ways to increase your website in major search engines.
I hope this information will be helpful.
I agree with all the suggestions given above. Pre-calculate > Plan > Budget >
Buy a domain and a hosting, I presonally prefer BigRock or Hostgator. You can make your website by using wordpress (my recommendation) or joomla. Wordpress is free and you can find it very easy to start with.

I have given the below suggestion for another question raised in MosaicHUB. Hope it will be useful.
The first thing you should finalize basic keywords which are relevant to your product / service / concept. Having website is not a deal. Because what great information can you provide, if you don’t know how to increase Search Engine Visibility of Your Website? World Statistics illustrate that the majority Search Engine Visitors do not go beyond the First Page of Search engines; some still looks only for first top 5 results. Imagine, what if your website to be on top Search Engine Ranking for competitive keywords in an alcove a good number businesses would vision of?
So you will know how many URLs are required for your website. Optimize all your URLs by the help of some best SEO Expert (refer my web URL http://seo-expertz.com/top-best-seo-company-in-bangalore-seo-company.html). Another important thing you have to implement is Landing Page of your website should be attractive and informative when the visitors want to view your website. As Mr. Mark Adams said make sure that Google Webmaster tool and Google Analytic are set up will be Tracking progress which is a key part of overall SEO. Next important Technic is Off Page SEO (Backlinking, SMM and etc.) which will be done with the help of SEO Specialists or Link Builders.

. Have a Facebook presence, start a fan page and offer useful information. You can do that right away.
. Have a simple wordpress.com (vs wordpress.org) web site. It's free and you can post useful information. You set that up fairly quickly.
. Have a social media presence on platforms that prospective customer use, e.g. Pinterest.
I agree with others about having a biz plan but it's important to just get started and not fret about the plan. Do have a good name and try to reserve a good URL. Whois.com for example shows that weddingplanner.buzz is available and you can reserve that right away online.
It may be better to get started and get some interactive experience right away than to spend a lot of time and money into building a big web site. Most of your marketing will be done through word of mouth and references, so use your knowledge to offer useful content to prospective customers. Lots of good information from others, digest it all, choose for yourself and carpe diem!
You got so many great answers, from a lot of perspectives: business planning, marketing, IT, etc. I'm going to add that I'm sure there is a lot of competition everywhere, but most people forget to actually look what questions the visitors have when they come to the site, and that can be an important plus to your site. Anxious brides must have a million questions, right?
Anyway, I'm guessing that putting all this information together might lead to an anxious wedding planner too. If you want to chat, I'd be happy to help you with the brainstorming for free. Just follow me and we can email or chat over Skype.
You are having such an interesting theme to start with. Here are the different things that needs to get done perfectly so that you can start your website without any problem:-
1) First you need to develop a business model where you can make a blue print of your website.
2) The second step is choosing a domain. While paying for domain, just check if they provide full security to your website. There are lot of domain hosting websites that provide domain hosting in just $1 but there is no security in getting domain hosting services from such companies.
3)As you are planning for wedding planner business, you can go with custom CMS services.
4) After website is developed it need s a good UX analysis to check if it is providing good user experience to the users or not.
5) after that , it goes to optimization phase, where website is optimized for search engines queries to make website rank well in search engines to generate good traffic and conversions.

It is a big step abut a neccessary one.
!st thing you would need is to contact a company like mine. Arrange a domain and hosting plan. That way you have the address you want and can set up company emails etc.
Then we establish what your needs are, what you are trying to achieve and what size and quality of site you are aiming for.

First of all planning to develop the website the plan must be on your paper. Noe once you had set up the thing which you wants to be in your website the go to other competitor's websites from your same business stream. Then note down what new they had included in their websites so you will be very cleared about your requirement.
After things done now you have development stage then you have two ways to go either you could hire a web professional or you can make by your self but I think you must hire a web professional.
According to your business stream I must add that please more concentrate the outlook, design & look of your website because designs & color make your first impression according to first impression is last impression.
they after you can start marketing of your website via online and offline via all your resources.
Consider using social platforms such as Facebook, Twitter & Pintrest to drive interests / traffic towards your website & business offerings.
Identify keywords (2-3 word keywords) that identify your business. As an example, you may want to use, 'wedding planner san jose' if you are targeting your local city of San Jose. Make a list of them.
For example, creating a page ending with www.yourwebsite.com/wedding-planner-san-jose.html with relevant information will help you appear on search engines in the long run for the search term ' Wedding Planner San Jose'.
Finally, another to consider, is your website mobile optimized or mobile friendly?
If you haven't had your website created yet, we recommend getting a responsive website that caters to all devices (desktop/tablets & smartphones). Bear in mind that your audience are now on multi-screens. You want them to have a good experience viewing your offering on mobile devices.
If your website is already made but not mobile friendly, you may enable it to be mobile friendly by creating a separate mobile website.

Never fall into the trap of “looking to launch a website” before you have defined your overall Marketing Strategy. What role (within your marketing mix and budget) will your website play, how will your other core marketing activities interact with your website. What will brides actually want from your site and how will you deliver it effectively!
Wedding planners are reliant on referrals, as repeat business is not the objective of a wedding, therefore social media may be your primary on-line focus and deserve 75% of your on-line marketing budget. In reality a web page may not even be your highest priority, so don’t let the media/technology dictate your strategy.
DO you have a logo and brand identity in place? I often ask my clients that first to determine if they have that tool needed for making a great website. There are a lot of options out there - but the key to me is finding the designer or builder who can make you look the best you can in a branding kind of way. I am very experienced and good at that. - Best, Chris
