How do you politely tell someone you don’t want to give them the new password to your website? It started out as a wedding website but has since changed to a travel site since we live overseas.
A guest who didn’t bother RSVPing or sending a card/gift wants access to the site to see our wedding pictures. I gave her our photographer’s FB link with our pictures but she wants constant access.
Am I being unreasonable? Only 1/3 of our guests even responded and our thoughts were if we didn’t mean enough to them for an RSVP then why should they care about following us and our travels?

NOBODY should have access to any passwords to anything that they did not create themselves!
There is no reason good enough for her to need your password. She can folllow you website like the rest of the world!

I’m a little confused, it’s like a travel blog now? Or travel information for you guests to get to the wedding?
Eitherway, I don’t really see a reason to not give her the password, except for punishing her for not RSVP’ing. They way I see it, if they were important enough to get an invite, they should be someone you are happy to share your travels with. (and if its just travel information for guests, I still don’t see the harm in lettin her know)

@happyface: I’m assuming the OP has something like a password protected blog or website. Passwords are meant to be give to people you want to be able to follow you – the point is that you don’t want the general public to see. The password won’t allow her to make changes or add things to the site.

I don’t think you’re being unreasonable, but is this the type of person who’d hold a grudge or be really angry if you didn’t share. In an effort to keep the peace, I’d try to estimate her reaction and go from there

@CoCoCourtney: It is a shutterfly website which is a picture sharing site. We posted all the wedding info on there but also our travels over the last couple of years. We figured people were interested in what we had been up to. After the wedding, we took down all the wedding info including registries and have made it just about our travels including currently planned trips.
Darling Husband was the one who wanted to change it. All his childhood friends didn’t respond nor acknowledge the fact he was getting married. It really upset him since he was there for their weddings. None of them have mentioned the fact that the password has been changed…except this one former co-worker.

I totally understand being frustrated with the people who didn’t RSVP, I’m sure I would be mad too.
I think I would still give the former co-worker the password. I think giving people the benefit of the doubt is generally good. You don’t know why this person didn’t RSVP, and obviously they do care about following your travels.
Sorry again about people not acknolweding the wedding, that sucks.
