    ah, i wouldn’t be that bothered if my website was put on facebook for others to see. if people are interested, why not let them look?

    but that’s just me.

    Mm, I don’t know…I’ve seen a lot of people post their own wedding sites on FB, which I’m sure people who aren’t invited can access. If you google my maiden name and DH’s name, our website comes up for the world to see. You could always password protect it if you didn’t want strangers to see it…otherwise, it’s out there and anyone can look. I don’t think I’d post a site that’s not my own, but I don’t find it to be a huge faux pas.

    I think if you just do a plain Google search of FI and my name our wedding website comes up!  It wouldnt bother or surprise me if someone posted it on FB…at least people would see all the hard work put into it!

    I am using the same site… wedsite… and sometimes if you like it on your site it automatically posts it on your FB…. or if she has visted the wedsite FB page… it’s  strange one as that is how it looked when I put it up or made a comment to it… came up in my facebook witht he dialogue box.

    I wouldn’t be cool with that….unless I had given permission. But even then I don’t know if I’d even put on FB, I’m a bit funny about my every movement and photo being on there (anyone seen Catfish??!)

    I posted the address for it before it was actually up and running.  I created it from scratch myself, so I didn’t want to seem like I was “bragging” and put it on f-book once created.  However, I knew that the people who were close to us would “take note” and visit back to it a few weeks later and then see it completed.  It’s hard…I don’t want to come across as “me, me, me—wedding wedding wedding” but I also want to share some things I worked hard on with others in an easy fashion.  Plus, like many other say, if you google the names of the bride and groom, their registries, wedding site, etc can easily be found anyway.

    FI’s sister gave out the password to ours and her friend RSVP’d to our wedding. She isn’t invited and we haven’t even set a date! These are the kinds of things that can happen when people get a hold of your website that aren’t invited. It can also make people who think they are/wish they were invited feel upset. It really just makes it hard on the couple who may want to keep that info private. Also, if I’m not mistaken, your wedding date always shows up on some sites, password or not, so that’s problematic too.

    @lookingglass:  Agreed.

    My wedding website link is on my FB info page so that my family can go to it easily. I really don’t care if FB friends or even perfect strangers look at it. Heck it is an exciting thing and I’d love to share it with the world.

    @CaliHoya:  Woah, how random.

    It wouldn’t bother me to see this, but I haven’t put our website on my FB. There are some people we weren’t able to invite that probably expected an invitation. I don’t want to make them feel left out. 🙁

    I had someone post our weddingwire site on facebook and I asked her to remove it.  Mostly it’s because I don’t want anyone to feel bad about not being invited.  The other reason is that there is literally all the information needed to show up uninvited.  If people see the wedding website and assume (wrongly) that it’s a Facebook kind of thing, open to anyone interested, then that wouldn’t be good at all.  We are having an open bar (absolutely unheard of in our area strangely enough) and that alone would bring out far more Yahoos than we have already invited.  🙂

    My website is password protected. If anybody shares it, it can’t be seen without the password. If the password is shared, I will just change it, and the offending party will not be informed of the change.

    i wouldn’t be happy at all… our wedding website had private details, such as the locations and times.. i would not want alll my fb friends knowing.. i have 260 friends on there and only 60 from fb were invited.. i wouldn’t want 200 random acquaintances knowing details about my wedding day…
