Do I have to have our wedding web site and all our registries completely finished before we send out the STDs? We’re going really simple with them and not including the web site info, but I feel like people might start asking.
Thoughts? I really don’t want to have to finish them right now.

The website and related info will go on a card included with the actual invitations.
I think it’s important, or at least helpful, to have hotels figured out before the STDs are mailed, but the rest of it…
(Can you tell I’m having an overwhelmed day?)

Nah I didn’t either. The website isn’t even done. there are some areas still empty – although that’s his job. We only have 1 tiny registry, we’ll add to that one and make a big BB&B one too. My guess is people are gonna check back again as it gets closer so it’s all good.
Edit: we did make sure the hotel info was on the site cuz we didn’t put it on our STD’s.

You don’t really need to have anything done to send out the STDs other than knowing the date and location. You’re just asking them to set aside that date. You should however update your site with the hotel information soon so that people can get that booked in advance. I would still put the website link on your STDs if you can fit it on there. It will save you from answering a few questions later on.

i just mailed out my STD’s today and i did put my hotel info in there as well as my wedding website, but im having a destination wedding so i felt like i had to give them info now so they can plan accordingly.. i would say put the hotel info but your website doesnt have to be fully complete.

I’m not putting the link on the STDs. We have a page through weddingcentral.com and the link would be epic and look a hot mess. Even on the invitation insert, I’m not putting the full link. I’m just going to have it say basically go to this web site and search either name. I can’t think of a more aesthetically pleasing way to do it.

I’m putting our website on our STD’s only. The address really isn’t long or silly looking. I did my website through brides.com (metzgerlukasik.brides.com if you’re interested)

Hmmm if the brides.com links are better looking maybe I’ll change it. The thought of starting from scratch kind of makes me want to vomit, though.

i didn’t put our registry info on our website before we sent out save the dates. i also haven’t figured out whether we can get a room block yet, so i said that i would update the page when we do. same goes for a couple of other pages on our website.

I have the website on our save the dates. And the website already has a whole bunch of necessary information. About 80% done and the registry will be continually updated.
My questions is I’m planning on putting in a hotel block information insert for some guests who do not have computer access/not tech savvy.
I’ll definitely include hotel name and contact information. Is it taboo or helpful to include the rate/nt?

Our website was completed before we sent out our STDs, but that’s b/c a major point of sending out our STDs was to point people towards the website for hotel info. (Our guests are going to need to book their hotels really early b/c we’re getting married in a tourist destination during tourist season.) We have yet to put together our registries though. The “Registry” link on our website says something like, “Thanks for thinking of us! We haven’t set up any registries yet, but we will update this page when we do.” Hopefully we’ll get around to registering next weekend, b/c it’s currently at the top of our list.
