Hmm….could you possibly send a mass email to everyone with the new website info? I would really hate for you to have to print new stds:-(

I think more people pay attention to your Save-The-Date Cards than your Web site – I actually got a lot of flak from my mother because we went with a very personalized design (unnecessary in her opinion).  Although I know it’s tempting, I think it’s worth just letting it go and not changing your Web site.

I think you should should deal with it. I know you want every aspect to be perfect, but if it has all the important information, then it’s at least serving it’s purpose. Maybe focus on something else to work on, some personal touch for the ceremony or reception, which will be much more memorable in the long run.

what I would do is either use a “redirect” to the website you really want, or put a large link on the front page saying that your wedding website has moved to “xxx.com” location.

I would stick to the one you have.

What if you put a link to the new website on the old one? I had to change websites midway through and everyone adapted fine.

I wouldn’t worry too much about it for the Save-The-Date Cards.  We went crazy trying to get our website done before we printed them and sent them out.  Turns out, only two people have visited it!  So you could probably include a new website address on a card in your invite when people are more likely to check it out for accomodation info, etc.

By The Way, we are using a project wedding website and love it!

Knowing me, i’d want to change it LOL.  Just do a redirect, it’s so easy.  Keep the wedding channel one only ONE page and a link to the new website on that one page, simple enough 🙂

I would just suck it up! A lot of people probably don’t even look at the websites, so i think you are ok!

I would just leave it, it’s really not worth the headache of changing

I’d keep all the info on the one you don’t like, stick with the Save-The-Date Cards as they are.

But, go ahead and make the one you like more, and give that address out from now on (like with the invites).

So, it means you have to make 2 websites, but I think you’ve already done that anyway….

 

(sorry if I’m repeating, didn’t have time to read other comments)

I would leave it. I keep comparing my website to another brides’ but then I remember that she is paying monthly for her site and mine is free!!! The websites are really just there to provide guests with information about times, locations, directions, flight info, accommodations, etc. People arent going to care what it looks like!

I wasn’t able to read everyone’s responses but I just wanted to chime in – definitely stick with the website you already have and is already printed on the Save-The-Date Cards … I was so dissappointed to find out that really very VERY few people actually looked at the website that I put a LOT of time into.  So rather then spending the time and wasting the money to reprint, I’d just go with what you’ve got – that’s just my advice!
