Is it inappropriate to post wedding events on the website?

@BriansBride:  I definitly understand your train of thought. If it were me, I’d only put the events everyone knowing about the wedding website is invited to on there. (i assume ceremony and reception) i would NOT list the rest (rehearsal dinner, bridal shower…) on there.

I would list only events that everyone is invited to attend. Often those type of websites allow you to hide pages that do not apply to you.

I have the same site.  I actually don’t use that part only because for showers and dinners it a personal item. 

Depending on you, this isn’t a classy way but Facebook you can make an event that is private if you need to give information out.  But it depends on your people etc.  Just a wild suggestion

I wouldn’t use that part of the site unless everyone who has access to it is actually invited to the events you list. Otherwise there’s always a danger that people will assume they are invited. You should be able to hide pages that aren’t relevant.

I used that section for detailed information about the ceremony and reception. I would not use it for events such as the shower and rehearsal dinner because not all guests are invited to those. You may end up with people just showing up because they assumed they were invited as it’s on the site.

We’re not mentioning the rehearsal dinner, on our website, as only 30 of the 130 invited guests are included (bridal party, spouses, parents, etc.). We did do a webpage, for the shower. It will only be activated between the time the invitations are mailed and the shower date and includes a link to a map and directions. Every woman, in the area where we live, will be invited – out of town guests will not. (He’s from a city a 5 hour drive away, so it was an easy cut-off).

I’m invited to a wedding, where everything is mentioned on the website – the rehearsal dinner and 2 other events are described as “by separate invitation.”

I wouldn’t include information for events that aren’t open to everyone.

@BriansBride:  I don’t know yet.  Most of my BM & GM aren’t even big Facebookers but a lot of our friends are.  I think we annoy some people because we post  a lot about our wedding but for the vast majority of our people are Facebook addicts.

The wedding is in my home state but my FI wanted to do a Reception in his home state for those who can’t travel out.  We are making some invitations but we are basically doing a Facebook event.  We are gonna post this week.  I’ll let you know how it goes over.  I have seen other do it for Showers and events for the wedding both private and open.  Even seen some that made an event for their wedding on Facebook.  I didn’t want our wedding to be a FB event, but the other parties are ok.

I would probably use e-vites or word-of-mouth for those kinds of events. I am also using; I am not putting tea-ceremony details on there since only immediate families are involved/invited.
