Wedding website cards are perfectly acceptable to include in an invitation suite. No need to worry!

I don’t see a problem with it. This is 2010, not 1940. Etiquette needs to be updated for the electronic age and we have to remember that each generation is getting younger. I don’t have anyone over the age of 65 in my family and they are all computer savvy. Every wedding in our family has had a seperate registry card. No one in our family holds their nose up to anything. You have to remember that your guests are not logging on to wedding websites and reading magazines every day. Some of the things that other people think are tacky is pretty normal in some parts of the country (dollar dance, potluck receptions, ect) Don’t let the etiquette police tell you something about your guests that you only know. I know my guests on both sides and no one is going to boycott my wedding because there were registry cards in the invites. ^_^

No way, inserts directing guests to your wedding website are TOTALLY fine!! How else will guests know what the attire of your wedding is, where any additional events are being held, what time everything starts, etc…No worries, you’re completely in the clear on this one!

Wedding websites are perfectly ok! I am doing one, as well as printing out and mailing Newsletters  with the same info (minus the registry info) for those who aren’t computer savvy 😀

I included my wedding website on the back of our direction card.  No worries, girl!

i think ita a great idea, i actually put our website on the save the dates but i sent them postcard style and didnt realize that the post office would stamp over them so i dont think alot of people noticed it on there so i have to figure out a way as well to get those in with the invitations, no just for registry but hotel info and other things as well.

The other girls are right, this is totally fine.  I prefer the website on the save the date rather than the invitation just because the save the date is a less formal item but from an etiquette stand point you can include your wedding website anywhere you like.  Don’t stress : )

This is totally fine and proper.  I’m sure your guests will appreciate being directed to the website, and hopefully it will save you time from answering the same questions over and over.  🙂

Totally fine.  It’s not like you’re simply pointing someone to a website that says – hey, buy us a gift from Macys.  I love wedding websites b/c you can find info re directions, hotel blocks, wedding events, registry, etc.  Don’t worry about it 🙂

Totally fine.  I put a note about our wedding website on both our save the dates, and th the reception card in our invites.

I wasn’t as wordy about it though.  Just something like “for more information please visit http://www.ourwedding.com

As long as the sum total of content on your wedding website isn’t “WE’RE REGISTERED HERE GIVE US PRESENTS!!!!!”, I see nothing wrong with it. On our website, we included stuff like directions, stuff to do in the area, a cutesy story of our engagement, etc, as well as registry information. I had a number of guests comment on how useful they found our site.

I know we included SOMETHING with our wedding website on it -I think it was the reverse of the map.  It wasn’t necessarily for the registry (most people give cash anyhow), but so that guest would have location info etc. at their fingertips.
