I am looking for advice on making a private wedding website. My Fiance is a very private person in general, doesn’t like his personal info out there. But also, he has concerns about a specific family member crashing the wedding and she has recently been tryingn to contact him via Facebook and such.
We need a website because we have lots of out of town guests and need a place to consolidate all the info such as travel, lodging, date & time, registries, etc. But we don’t want all of that info to show up in a general Google search. We would include the URL and Password for our guests on their Save the Dates and invites. Can you recommend any sites that enable password protection and maybe even search enging blocking (aka security by obscurity)?

The knot does. You add a 4 digit pass code

We used Appy Couple and were able to make it completely private, with an access code we gave users with the Save the Date.

We made ours password protected. Word to the wise though – if you plan on registering for gifts those registries will show up in a Google search and generally speaking, with the wedding date. You might want to consider using a different date (but that may confuse your guests) or asking if there’s a way to password protect your registries (although I’ve never seen that before). Best of luck Bee!

We have a Riley and Grey website. The password option is my favorite part for privacy!

If you order any paper products from minted, you can get a free, password protected site.

We used http://www.mywedding.com. It’s password-protected and we gave our guests our site URL and password on an extra insert with our wedding invites. We also sent it to them informally via email / text. I can totally relate with your and your FI’s desire for privacy with regard to your wedding. Our wedding website is super comprehensive and organized, while having the extra privacy of being password-protected.
And also echoing poster above my post – if you register, it’ll show up in Google searches and it will likely list your wedding date and the location (name of the city) from which you registered. I’m not sure if there’s any way to get around that.
