Not sure if this has been asked already…sorry if it has!
But, should I put our bridal shower and bachelor/bachlorette party info on the wedding website?
The girls are going to San Diego and the guys to Vegas, both sides of our bridal party have already invited/booked and organized. That being said, I believe everyone we would want to join us has been invited…so do we advertise our plans on our website?
Also for the shower, do I post that? I gave my hostess a list of everyone(at least I think I included everyone) I want invited…I am just worried about hurting someones feelings if they do not get invited…the only people I didn’t invite were Fiance mom’s Out of Town family/friends that I don’t know and have never met…
Ohhh almost forgot, what about rehearsal dinner and day after "no-host" brunch?

I wouldn’t put information on my wedding website for any wedding events that are exclusive. I think some people who aren’t invited but see the date, time, location, etc… might end up with their feelings hurt. The only exception I would make is if there is a way for you to block off certain information from the general public; like if you have password protected pages, you could list the bridal shower and bachelorette party info there, and only give out the password to the people you want to see it. Besides protecting people’s feelings, it might also save you from having univited guests just show up. You wouldn’t want your weird aunt or Fi’s creepy cousin to show up to your bachelorette party because they saw when and where it was, right?

I wouldn’t put up any of this information on your website. You don’t want feelings to get hurt, even if you think that everyone that would want to be invited, was invited. It just opens the door for awkward situations if all the information is on the website and not every one is invited
I would use other methods of sending information(email) and formal invitations. (this goes for the rehearsal dinner and the day-after brunch too.) If everyone that receives the website address, is invited to those things, then it is ok to put the information on the website. Otherwise stick to other methods to get the information across

I wouldn’t post this information either. Separate invitations will work best; if your group is small and informal you could even do something as easy as an evite. Wedding websites are so, so useful for guests, but all of your festivities don’t need to be up there! For example, the rehearsal dinner shouldn’t be on your website because you may unintentionally invite people! If you do post any of this info, be ready and aware that you may end up with extra guests.

I agree- don’t put it on there unless you want everyone who visits the site to think they are invited to join you!

Our showers, bachelor(ette) parties, and other festivities are the more the merrier, so we did post it on our wedsite and created Facebook events. From our wedsite, people can click through to FB to get full details and RSVP. But you definitely have to be careful not to exclude anyone… Want to be careful of your guests’ feelings for sure. 🙂
