Unfortunately I don’t think a lot of people look at wedding websites…

I think wedding websites are generally NEW and so guests aren’t used to referring to it! Hopefully once your invites go out they won’t be bugging you so much!

I get this problem a lot at work! I help organize simple training events where people register online, and I get TONS of questions every time we have an event. It’s all right there in the e-mails I send, on the website itself. I think some people are just sort of clueless and don’t sleuth around for info before asking for help.

I also spent hours on my website and included it on our save the dates.  I can tell by the page view counter that almost no one has looked at it (and our wedding is in like 5 weeks now – the website has been up since sometime in 2009).  I was so proud of it so it makes me kind of sad.

This is also a big frustration of mine … Before you ask me a question look at the website! Where should I book a room? Huh – maybe look at the hotel section on the website! Where are we registered? If you looked at the registry section of the website, you could link right into the registeries! GRRRRR!!

I am sure that if you remind your guests to view your wedding website then that would be a possibility. Chances are, they could have just not been thinking about it, which is possible. Word of mouth sometimes goes further than the internet, even though the internet seems to be more widely acceptable.

And then of course there are a select few that just flat out won’t look at wedding websites.

I would change my voicemail message to “Please see our website at http://www.weddingsite.com for all wedding related questions!” and stop answering the phone when it rings!

Did you guys put your wedding website URLs on your STDs?  I’m really hoping that would make it painfully obvious that people should check the website for wedding info, but if that didn’t work for y’all, guess I’m screwed, haha.

Honestly, I don’t think people are going to use a wedding website. Without weddingbee I would have no idea that/why one existed, so I’m guessing many people (unless just married or engaged and had done this themselves) are like, I’m sure I can find this information on their wedding website! Or even realize you had a wedding website. Just because the URL is there doesn’t mean it “clicked” for them. I guess I’m just saying…this stinks, but is totally going to keep happening.
