Password protect a Wordpress site

I'm creating a wedding website using Wordpress. I'd like to have the whole thing behind a password.

This would be one password that everyone must type to get in. So I envision the first page just has the couple's names and the password box with the hint ("type in the date of the wedding"). It clearly doesn't have to be super high security, but just enough to keep random nosy folks out.
Searching online brings up so many possibilities, I'm not sure which is best. I know I don't want to use htaccess and have the pop-up (for lack of a better term) window that asks for a password. I'd rather it look/act cleaner than that.
Also, this is not on the Wordpress servers, but on a hosting account I have.
