I think it would look very tasteful at the bottom of a formal invite, it all depends on how you word it.  How about:

I also like the idea of a separate small insert.  I’ve received many wedding invitations that had extra inserts, like maps, etc. and it looks great if you print it on heavy stock, vellum, or paper that matches your invitations.

Etiquette requires updating as we advance technologically, so don’t worry too much about etiquette that was written 30 years ago :-).

The business card size isn’t a bad idea.  Put a cute note, ("To find out what shennanigans we are up to and more information about the wedding please visit our website.   website name here).

Or perhaps you could put it on the reply card?

I think it is a bit tacky to have it on the invitation itself since the website ususally includes the location of your registry.

We put ours at the bottom of our formal invitation…the very bottom said the location of the wedding, and then below that it said "Reception to Follow" and right below that, we put our website.  I also received an invitation like that recently, and it is very helpful and tasteful, and you don’t have too many extra scraps of paper that might fall out!

i created invitations for a friend a few years ago and she had several inserts. she told me she didn’t want to include all of the cards from the different places she had set up her registry as she felt it was just too many items, but she had knot wedding website so we put that address on a business card.

 her invites had soft pink rose on white paper so i set the webaddress in a font i had used on her invitation and with the rose on the card. they came out great, she printed them on her own printer.

I think tberry’s idea of personalizing the message is really cute if you go the separate card route. However, I don’t think there’s anything tacky with putting a website address at the bottom of the invite – depending on how you do it. I wouldn’t add any text like "For more info, visit" – keeping it short and simple will make it  look classy, plus, web addresses are everywhere these days and I think people know what they’ll find there. Consider ditching the www too, most fashionable brands do it, i.e.  weddingwebsite.com, and maybe try a font that does all caps but really small ones. Simple, subtle and elegant. Good luck!

I had an invite, a directions card, and a hotel card – I put the website on the hotel card…"for more wedding details visit http://www.website.com".  I don’t think it shoudl go on the invite….I don’t think I would really read much on th einvite other than time and place.

Instead of a map/direction card we ordered a pew card (like a business card) and put a brief note and our website address.  Our invites arrived today and they look great!

I have ours on the "Information" insert, along with a couple websites about the area.

Are you going to have any other inserts you could put the website address on?  If not, I totally agree with SoCal and Daffodil about putting it at the bottom of the invite, with something like "for more information, please visit http://www.xxx.com". 

That said, if you still don’t feel right about putting it on the invite, I don’t think having a separate business card-size insert will look odd at all.  However, instead of just putting your website address by itself (that might be a bit odd), again, I like the idea of adding a little phrase as others have suggested above…."For more information…"/ "For more details…."
