    I don’t see why they’d be tacky. It’s helpful for us since no one is local.

    I think they’re pretty common nowadays. Definitely not tacky!

    Though, it’s definitely possible for an individual’s website to be of poor taste. In general, however, they’re pretty convenient.

    I find them useful for people who have destination weddings. You can put a lot of info and links on them for your guests. I don’t care too much to read the stories of how the couple met each member of the wedding party or other personal tidbits. But that’s just me. I didnt do my own because our wedding is small, and all of our guests are very close to us. They already know how we met, how he proposed, and our basic wedding information. Your site is very cute and nicely done.

    Not at all. We got so much positive feedback on ours.

    We’ve received a lot of positive feedback. It’s very helpful for out of town guests as we’ve included an accommodation page, maps for the ceremony and reception and our RSVP is done strictly on our website. I’m using mywedding.com as our host and its amazing. So many designs to choose from and it’s a breeze to setup. The RSVP option is really amazing. Allows guests to RSVP directly on our website, sends me notifications of responses and even includes meal options. You can also export your RSVP’s into excel right from the website for easy organization.

    I think that’s like calling an invitation tacky.  It can be made tacky.

    Yours looks great! We aren’t going to do one, because we are having a small local wedding, but I definitely don’t think they’re tacky.  Well, I mean, they can be tacky, you can make anything tacky (so I voted maybe), but the concept itself certainly isn’t.

    I wouldn’t exactly call them useful since hardly any of your guests will go to it, but they’re only tacky if they scream GIVE ME GIFTS.

    When it’s done right, it can be helpful and sweet.  But other times, it seems awfully cheesy to me.  I guess it’s really how it’s done.

    They can be really shitty sometimes. Or they can be a great resource. But the idea itself is not bad!

    I think they can be tasteful.  Especially for a destination wedding or a wedding that requires a significant number of your guests to travel, a website can be really useful for providing links to closest airports, accommodations, and directions as well as information on the wedding ceremony and reception in case people lose their invitations.  A tasteful amount of information about the couple is good, but not 40 photo albums or a 3000 word essay on how the proposal went down.  I’d also be careful to make sure it doesn’t look like the website exists only to showcase multiple registries either.
