    I don’t think putting your website on your invite is tacky, BUT I might advise against using it as your only form of RSVPs.  Depending on the size of your wedding and how tech savvy your guests will be, it might backfire on you…maybe you can do a postcard RSVP insert?

    It’s quite widely accepted now to put the URL of your wedding website on your invites actually. I say go for it.
    Tacky is in the eye of the beholder anyways. No matter what we all do for our wedding someone is going to think that a certain aspect of it is tacky.

    “tacky” is in the eye of the beholder. I don’t see a problem with including the website on the invitation as long as it isn’t in a HUGE font or a prominent position on the invitation.

    I voted “no” though my website was ‘in’ my invite.  Let me explain…

    I didn’t think it looked right printed on the invite, but I had it listed on an insert as part of the wedding information…then it can be detached, along with the map/directions info and the invite can be kept as a keepsake. =)

    I’m not sre what you mean, actually on the invites or included in the envelope?  We’re putting our website information on a seprate card in our invites (the bottom of the reception card “For directions and further information please visit the couples website…), I don’t see why anyone would have a problem with that?

    I personally would cringe if I saw it on the invite itself.  It would really interfere with the formality of a wedding invitation.  However, I could see it being ok on an enclosure card or something.  I think you need to give people another rsvp option besides a website though, for older relatives and the computer illiterate.

    We printed our website on the back of our envelope.  The return address was on the top flap.  Then the bottom of the envelope said “Please help us do our part to save the environment and RSVP on our website http://www.website.com.  Your reply is requested by March 1, 2010.”  We saved on paper and postage!  We sent 100 invites total and because we ordered from an easy to work with etsy seller, we ordered 80 of the invites with those printed envelopes and 20 traditional invites with reply cards and the return address only on the envelope.  So far its worked out really well except the two envelopes I mixed up.  One of the most tech saavy couples got an old school one and vice versa.  Oops! 🙂

    My invites were the pocket type.  So I did like krissycake and printed a little insert card with info on it.  (Airports, hotels, venue and our website)  It wasn’t included so I just bought a plain black and white card to use.

     

    (I also changed the color of the ribbon, tissue paper and added a little pink rhinestone to make it match our theme a little more.  Ordered personalized seals from zazzle.com)

    I voted go for it, but I did mean including it in the insert. If there is no insert, maybe on the back of the formal invite? I agree that a url is clunky in print next to all of the pretty font.

    I just went to one of the most formal weddings I have ever been to in November, and they had the wedding website printed on the invitations. These were some VERY expensive invitations too! Not sure why anyone would think that was tacky. Honestly who cares…I mean really it is just an invitation!

    I had pocketfolds, and my website was displayed prominently on the pocket of the pocketfold.  So I said yes.  But if you mean on the MAIN invite?  Sure, why not?  Just because it’s an internet address doesn’t make it any less formal regarding information about your big day.

    It is your wedding, I say do what you want. We ordered invites from Hallmark.com and we are using a wedding website as RSVP (I also included a phone number response for my grandparents).

    Invites are headed for the garbage or recycling after anyways 🙂

    I don’t have mine directly on the invitation but I have it on an enclosure, but it also has accomodation info, etc. I say save the money and just do it! The closer I get to my wedding day the more I realize people don’t notice the stuff that we do (brides).

    I voted No it’s not tacky. They are you’re invitations and your wedding so do as you please. The guests will probably think it’s cool.
