Eugh….that sounds….awkward. 

I think a website is a very good way to get all of that information out there without having to individually respond to every single text message, email and phone call.

However, your family sounds (with all due respect) invasive. A website might just egg them on.

Just politely let everyone know that you don’t have all the details down yet but when you have more information, you will update the website! (“I’m so glad to hear that you’re so excited! We are too!”)

On the website itself, at least until the date gets closer, I would limit the “contact us” information to something like a guestbook where you aren’t necessarily obligated to respond to every single comment and question.

Hope that helps. My family is the same way (“Well! I hope you’re going to have gluten free cake!” “You know Aunt Jenny is vegan now!” “Can I bring my dog?”). We are pretty much sending everyone to the website and letting them know that if the information isn’t up there, then we don’t know yet.

Do you WANT to tell your family everything that happens with the wedding planning process?  I think that’s going to lead them offering opinions when you might not want them, then depending on how much you blog nothing will be a suprise to them that night!  Also, agree with PP that it might stress you out adding that to your to-do list.  PLUS, I poured a lot of time into my basic wedding website (e-pics, directions, accomodations, etc.) and I swear no one looked at it.

I say stick to this site for your wedding planning updates (we love those) 🙂 and only tell them the pertinent information when its pertinent for them to get it (IE on an invitation).
