Hey bees, so my save the dates have a place to write our wedding website, and I’m trying to decide if FI and I should set one up. I’m very uncomfortable with putting actual wedding information on the website and that seems to defeat the purpose. The website URL is something that FI’s family would definitely pass around to people who aren’t on the guest list, and that just makes me a little worried. Also I just don’t like having personal info out there in general haha. A wedding website, however, would be a great place to include information about our registries, things to do in our town, hotel accomodations, suggested dress code, thank our guests for coming, etc. Is it tacky to have a wedding website that just addresses those things or is that totally normal?

MKWeddingBee: Post only what you feel comfortable posting. I see no problem with that.

MKWeddingBee: Some of the site that host them allow you to make certain area’s of the site password protected. That means that only guests can assess and random googlers can’t see anything private.

It puts a lot of information out there, for your guests, without killing a tree, to print that much paper. Both my girls had them (without passwords). The first wedding was last year and we used the site’s online RSVP, which forced many to look at it, for the first time. We had set-up a hotel block before the save the dates went out (10 months before), with the website on it, and people still called and asked about the hotel (ARGH!). As far as I know, there were no negative repercussions, by not having a password; it wouldn’t have fit on the magnet. For my 2nd daughter, we are not using a wesbite RSVP, but an e-mail address, which is the same one being used for her shower RSVP. There are some relatives fishing for an invitation, but aren’t getting one, but doubt we’ll have issues with them just showing-up, since it’s semi-destination. The four hotel blocks were set-up before the magnets were mailed (10 months before the wedding). It’s 1.5 hours from the bride’s side and 3.5 from the groom’s, so there’s a lot of information, on the website. Many people do have passwords, but sometimes there is information that people can access, through internet search, anyway.
