    We included the date, city/state, and “formal invitation to follow” on ours and I regret not including the wedding website on there too! I say do all of the above if you can 🙂

    @purple_sofia:  I would create a website and password protect it. You don’t want Joe schmoe or your not invited coworkers/friends looking at it.

    I would include the website, the password and “formal invitation to follow” on the invitations as well, so people know where to look for more information and know to keep an eye out for an invitation closer to the wedding.

    ETA: You can make a free website on weddingwire and the URL can be pretty short.

    @purple_sofia:  We have a lot of people flying in from all over (out of the country as well) I am aiming to get the save the dates out by the end of September but I have to order them from Zazzle this weekend

    For a wedding website I would suggest using Wedding Wire. Adorable templates and you can use music! Plus, they’re free 😉

    I used Wedding Window, paid but great service.  A little frustrating in load times though.

    Definitely get a website, that way people who want more details right away can look while they’re thinking of it when they get the STD.

    I didn’t password protect, but they do have to enter their email to get on – it doesn;t actually check the person against some list, but I figure if you aren’t supposed to be there that may stop you, and I could see whatever people entered so it helped me get everyone’s email addresses.

    I’m not a fan of “formal invitation to follow” unless you’re having a very formal wedding.  Everyone knows what a save-the-date is at this point, I think.

    City and state are crucial info and confusing if not there, IMO.

    People REALLY appreciate magnets in my experience, if that’s an option.

    Ice cream rocks!!

    @purple_sofia:  I set up a wedding website on wedding wire and it is password protected. Should I put the password on the STD as well?

    @purple_sofia:  That’s a great idea – we are doing postcards so the password would fit on the address label as well
