Has any brides out there who have a wedding website realize that no one is looking at it???? I have lots of useful info on mine and so far I’ve had 3 people look at the site. Everyones had their invites for at least a week. I’m starting to wonder if this fad is just a myth.

I am not sure if they are a waste, but I think we all just have to remember that no one is as “into” our wedding websites as we brides are. 🙂 That said, I am sure more people will use your site, especially in the next month as details are needed.

Maybe it depends on your guest list… Mine has been viewed over 4200 times! And we are only inviting 400 people to the wedding! I don’t know who these people are… it actually kind of worries me.

I had quite a few people look at ours!

We’ve had 1800 hits on our website, 20 people sign the guest book, and countless compliments. We included the website in our save the dates, and I forwarded the link to our wedding party and my parents, but otherwise everyone has just gone to the site by themselves.

We’ve invited about 300 people. But we’ve only had 3 look at it and 1 sign. Did anyone else use “the knots” verison of a wedding website too????

I sent out individual emails to act as Save the Dates, and put our wedding website on there. I was surprised when a lot of people would email me back making comments about the website! Maybe because in email form it’s a link that they can click on vs. a site they have to type in, more people are visiting it? I also told people that there were hotel deals on the site, so maybe that let them know that there were important details on the website?
But as long as those 3 people were really helped out by your website, it was kind of worth it, isn’t it? And I’m sure more than 3 people will look at it before your wedding day.

what domains did all your bees use for your sites?
I am using project wedding, I don’t know how I can see if someone has looked at my site?

oh, I see the views at the bottom of the page. But I’m sure it counts everytime I go on there because it says 384 and our invites have only been out for a few days.

I made a website for people to RSVP… the invitations have been sent for a June 26 wedding and no one has RSVP’d yet! It’s so rude not to RSVP and only those who have planned a wedding understand that.

i love looking at wedding websites! i always go there to find the registry too. we had one and people had to rsvp on it, so it kind of forced them to go.

I invited 90 guests, and have over 300 hits – so yeah, I think they are useful!

kare, what i did was sent out an email afterwards to remind people about the website in case they needed any info. also, if you included information about hotels and other things in your invite, people may not feel a need to go to the website until it gets closer to the wedding and they want to plan/think more about the wedding weekend. don’t worry, they’ll use it! (especially to find out where you’re registered)

I’ve always made good use of friends’ wedding websites to check directions, remind myself of where the hotel blocks are, or get to the couple’s registry. So as a guest, I think they’re super useful! I plan to make one for our wedding soon 🙂

I think it depends on how functional the site is when people first go there, and how easy it is to get to- Our kids sent out their link to a barely functional site when their invitations went out, so if someone tryed to get info, they didn’t get much. Chances are, they will not return. It is working well now, so we will see if they get more hits as the time gets closer. I really like the idea of the website- all I have to do is tuck my netbook into my purse and log on in any public place to doublecheck what’s current on the registry or who’s signed the guestbook.
