We did an insert card with the hotel information and a map for the invites.  No website.

We had a 6 month engagement and I had no time or desire to put something like that together.

Almost all of my guests were fromout of town and we didn’t have wedding website. Guests from our parents side were not likely to use the website, plus I can’t think of a reason why I should have one. Once we sent out the invites, our parents were responsible for communicating the info with their guests (food choices and parking info). As for me, I use email to communicates to all of our friends.

Most of the weddings I’ve been to haven’t had a website. There’s usually just some kind of insert in the invitation listing all the info the guests might need, and that works fine. 

We did have a wedding website, and honestly, no one really looked at the info on there anyway. People just called me with questions.

I started one and abandoned the whole thing.  It was too much work for the benefits, especially concidering that outside of my immediate family there are few that truly are internet users.

The wedding website was super easy for me to set up and I know lots of our guests have used it to book their hotel rooms.

I made a wedding website, but almost no one used it. So, I don’t think it’s necessary at all

The majority of our guests are out of town and young enough to be at least somewhat web savvy. I’ve resigned myself to answering questions over the phone/through email (I know it will happen) but I find the website to be helpful. I may be biased though, I do work in IT and throwing together a website isn’t as difficult for me as it is to the average non-IT bride.

You need to check out my wedding website. We have about 85% of our guest coming in from out of town and we did a wedsite. It was the best think to help with the phone call. We did such a detail wedsite that no one had a reason to call. But it took me like a month to finally finish the website so if you don’t have the time to make it as detail as possible then don’t do it.

we are not going to have one.. I hadn’t even heard of it until a girl on facebook posted hers.. I wasn’t engaged at the time and my first thought was “that’s insane!” i didn’t realize they were so popular!


if you have time, go for it, but I have never been to a wedding that had a website.. and I can’t see myself spending much time surfing a wedding site to be honest!

It’s a one stop shop, I have an

a wedding intro

wedding info

registry links

how we meet

poll and quiz about us

our honeymoon destination

even a gallery

also, things to do in ABQ (where the wedding will be held)

we also did a payment option with a travel agent on that info is on the website

Along with the hotel that is giving our out of town guest a group rate

Remember we have 85% of our guest coming in from out of town to a new state 84% of them have never been.
