I haven’t sent out my STD’s yet but I hope it doesn’t happen. Me and Fiance spent a lot of time on our website and our STD’s are almost ready to mail so there’s no way I can modify it now..

No one saw ours since the post office printed over it.  Even after we texted/messaged/told people in person – it seemed like people never visited it since they repeatedly asked questions that were clearly explained on the website.  Oh well.

This happened to me with my emailed save-the-dates too, and I was also surprised as it wasn’t exactly small or hidden!

sorry to say this, but even though we are in 2012, some people don’t use the internet as much as we think they do. My cousins decided to send out evites for their wedding- and my mom was a huge complainer! she is one that would not go on the website, even if it was posted on the invitation.  so it’s not you…. it’s them.  And there is nothing you can do about it, there will always be people who don’t understand or won’t follow instructions.

I put our wedding website on to our Save-The-Date Cards and TWICE on our invitations and people STILL won’t go to our website! lol

It annoys me because literally all the information guests would ever need and more is on there and I spent hours making it.

When people ask me questions about our wedding now, I’ve been giving them little cards with our site URL on it lol

We’ve had about 100 visits to our site…but we’ve invited 500+ people and the address was on both the Save the Dates and the invite. Some folks just don’t think to check it (I had one guest ask me the date….it’s on your invite).

I’ve just taken to texting back ‘sorry, super busy right now with class/work/FITB, but our website printed on your invite will have all the info you need. Thanks!’

I think I’m experiencing the exactly opposite:  I only sent 38 save the dates with website listed, and I have 238 views.  No joke, 238.  I’ve been on it maybe 15 times so apparently there’s a lot of other people interested in my info.

We not only have had a bunch of people not notice the website, but our website isn’t loading right in some browsers! The website claims no such site…but then if you search for our names, it loads with the exact. same. address. So yeah, we’re fielding a combination of “why do they know about the website and not me?” and “hey, your site doesn’t work!” Very frustrating.

I think the wedding website concept is still too new to be fully used by everyone.  Your aunt is doing what she believes is the proper thing to do to ask you for additional details.  I just got a STD for a cousin’s wedding and I haven’t peeked at their website yet either.  This might sound weird but I think I’d rather have my cousin send a little private family message to a handful of relatives to give us details that we need than to go hunt for a website…  and I use my computer all the time.  I just don’t normally have my computer anywhere near my refrigerater and the STD magnet.  I’ll probably go online to find the website just prior to the wedding. 

Of course, this is a wedding that I believe is going to be near my cousin’s hometown, and I don’t need to find a place to stay or extra details about where things are located …I already know it!

I think a lot of people, even internet savvy ones, just don’t make it a priority to visit wedding websites.   I know I am guilty of that – I might take a quick look once just to see what the couple has done, but then I never look back at it.  And I may just have been one of those annoying people who occasionally asks questions that had I remembered the website, probably could have found the answer to without having to ask.  

I think the younger generation is probably more into it but I still think that those of us who didn’t grow up on the internet (I’m 32 and didn’t get internet until I was 17 – and that was the very basic AOL v.1) we just don’t think to run to the internet for things like wedding details.
