I’m using mywedding.com to create our wedding website and I have the option to password protect it. Right now I have that turned on, mostly because it’s not done yet. Did you leave the password on your website? Why/Why not?

I don’t trust that my guests will keep a password handy, so ours is not password protected.
No problems with it thus far. I suppose someone could see wedding information on there and crash it. The venue is outside of town though, so they’d be going through some serious effort to do so! And I suppose someone could try to use our room block, but we can see everyone who books, so we could take care of that. Otherwise we don’t have any super personal information on there to protect.

@MsGinkgo: I left mine on. Guests have the password.

@bibbleskip We have a password for our wedding website to keep a “semblance” of online privacy. We don’t have any people we don’t want to see it, but we also don’t want randos on the internet checking out our personal info. Nobody has had an issue with the website, and we’re 2 weeks out!

@MsGinkgo: ours is not password protected but we also did not include anyone’s last names on the site (So if someone googled my name the site would not pop up)

We did not have a password. I think many of our guests would have skipped visiting it if we did have it password protected.
ETA: I just tried googling our names and it didn’t pop up. I’m sure if someone was really looking for it they could find it but there was no extremely personal information on our site.

Ours was password protected, because the website I chose made me have one. I chose june22, which is the date of the wedding. I listed this right next to the wedding website on the informational piece of paper in the invitation.
Of course, no one over the age of 35 was able to access the website. I don’t GET it. My mom, for example, is 65. She uses her computer EVERY DAY…yet she could not figure out how to access the website. *shrugs*

I didn’t because it forced people to make an account with the wedding website company. I just thought it was too much trouble for them.
