    My one friend just wrote http://www.theknot.com on her STD magnet so people knew they could look her up on there. Then when they got to the website they just searched on her name or her fiance’s name.

    we sent email save the dates and it worked out fine. much more economical, environmentally friendly, and those who don’t have email we made sure got the info by word of mouth. we decided to focus our stationary budget and creativity for the actual invitations.

    can you use tinyurl.com to shorten the URL for your STD’s?  Personally, though, we did e-save the dates (but a photoshopped image with the info written into it).

    Everyone we sent them to (not my parents’ friends b/c they wanted to do their own), is on email way more often.  also, we used it as a way to get people to send us their addresses…waaaaaaaaaaaaay more efficient than emailing each person individually.

    My 2 cents, when I first sent out our web address, only a few people commented so I was super nervous that not everyone recieved the email. Sending a hard save the date really helped because then I knew people had the date info and the URL.

    Will the knot let you pay for a better web address? It might be worth it. OR maybe set up another webpage with an easy address that will link your guests to your knot page. Good luck.

    you can buy your own URL from godaddy.com for like $10 and then link it to your knot wedding site. I did this with my mywedding.com website so our URL is just our firstnames.com instead of the super long one.

    I used business cards for Save Date Cards that I got from Zazzle.com They have the most adorable cat groom and bride on them. On the other side, is the wedding site URL. Being cheap (no! No! thrifty!!!) I tossed them in with this year’s Christmas cards.

    Am I wrong in thinking that guests without an e-mail probably do not have computers and therefore the web site URL would be useless to them anyway?
