We are not having a wedding website. Honestly as many of our friends/wedding guests that are internet savvy, a lot of them are not and I dont think any of them would bother checking it out or RSVP-ing to it.
So we are planning to do things the traditional way…paper. Except our registry is online and we intend to keep it that way.
SO, everyone keeps saying they are putting their registry site on their wedding website, any suggestions for me?
Any one else keeping it paper? Are the wedding websites mainly for RSVP-ing?????
EDIT : Well in that case our registry site has all that info on it. Hotels, ceremony and reception directions as well as our registry.
check it out and tell me if you would consider it a registry website or a wedding website please and would you include it with the invites/shower invites etc..

Actually, the RSVP thing is usually just a side note. Wedding websites are handy for directions, details (ie: dress code, any small notes, hotel blocks, no flash photography) and registry stuff. That’s what I’m using mine for, mostly.
It takes like two seconds to set one up using theknot, and they’re free… I really recommend it.

We have a website with all information, but we’re also including that with the invitations. Most people we know use the internet on a daily basis, and we knew that having it set up would be helpful. We’ll also have an RSVP area for those who’d rather do it that way. But it’s whatever floats ur boat! :0)

The only reason we have a website is because our photographers made it for us. I think it’s a great thing to have so you don’t have to include so much in your invites in that you can just have an insert that points people to it, but, hey, weddings happened for so many years without one. In fact, I’m one of the few people in my circle of married/getting married friends who does have one.

I have a website, but mostly because it is a domestic destination/weekend wedding. No one is traveling less than 2 hours, and about 70% of our guests are out of state.
But people spread the word about registries without the internet back not too long ago. I would recommend that you make sure the talkers among your friends and family know where you are registered. Tell mom, Future Mother-In-Law, the grandmothers, the BMs, etc., where you are registered and let them to spread the word.

We’re not having a wedding website either…we’re also not registering, so I guess we didn’t see a need for one. And also, it was FI’s responsibility to make one and he can be lazy 🙂 So no website!

I don’t think I’ll ever get around to getting our website up. But I do have a question, if you are planning on having people RSVP through the site, do you need to include postage on their paper reply card? I don’t want to be rude by not including it, but then again, I don’t want to waste the money if people aren’t going to use it.

We’re using honeyfund for our Hawaii honeymoon as well 🙂 I think it’s a great site, but it’s not a wedding website and pretty clearly focused on your registry. So I would not include it on your invites.
Since wedding websites are free and don’t take a lot of time to set up, I’m not sure why you would be against one. If you expect guests to log on to Honeyfund to get you gifts, why wouldn’t they log on to a wedding website that has the actual information they need to attend your wedding? You don’t need to do online RSVPs (many wedding websites don’t have this), but just have the info you put on honeyfund, maybe some photos of you guys and the wedding party, and the link to the registry.

we’re not doing one (both paranoid about having info on the web i guess)…we’ll see if anyone gets confused about hotels and such. brides always complain no one looks at the website tho
