Just hoping for some of your words of wisdom on this topic…
FH wants to put our address, phone number(s), full names, email addresses, etc., on our wedding website. Our site isn’t secure in any way (i.e. it is NOT password protected). It doesn’t come up in searches by google. And, thing is, even if we DON’T put that info up, our registry link has our full names on it, and a quick 411 search finds our address/phone number.
Is there any danger that putting up a “contact us” section adds?

I have a contact the bride and groom portion with an email link. On of the FI’s aunts who didn’t have our info sent an email and asked for us to call her. I wouldn’t put everything up there, you never know who could get a hold of it.

@mwitter80: Thanks! Who are you worried might get ahold of it?
Thanks to everyone for voting — any reason behind voting “Just first names”?

Ours is password protected with FI’s last name (none of my patient’s or students would know his last name), and we still aren’t using anyone’s last name on the site. In part because I don’t any patients/students stumbling upon it, and in part because I have pictures of the flowergirls on the site, and I always get very paranoid about internet security when it comes to kiddos.
Our site also gave us the option of having our site NOT show up in internet search engines, and so we did that as well.

I voted just first names mostly because I don’t want to make it too easy for unauthorized people to find me (aka potential employers). I’m also not putting a lot of personal info since I will have pictures. I think the wedding website is necessary but I don’t want random people having pictures of me and my contact info all in one place. I use weddingwire and they have a contact us that’s just a form that goes to whatever email you register. I made a special email for all my wedding stuff.

Full names are hard to avoid if your site links to your registry…I think our full names are on ours, but no contact info. I’m considering password protecting it, but I am not sure.

I put everything, BUT I had my site password protected before I did.

We put only our first names on the main page (and website address) and then people would have to dig (I mean really DIG) to find any info on our last names and contact info. Of course it makes me a bit nervous but the website has been live for a few months and we haven’t noticed an uptick in spam or anything like that.

Along with the wedding website link, I mailed an email address that I created just for wedding guests. Since I am a teacher, I run the risk of the wrong student (like the one who thought she could call me while I was away on Christmas vacation last year) contacting me for fun.

We put everything. But then again our personal information (phone numbers, addresses, emails, etc.) is protected. Only the people we allow to register can see that. I wanted to make sure that if somebody needed to get ahold of me (or send me stuff) knew where to look.

Um. I’m kinda anal about internet privacy so our wedding website was password protected as were our registries.
I voted full names and just emails and maybe create one for the wedding.
