My save the dates (which listed our wedding website) were received by our guests three days ago and not one.single.person went to visit the website. I know this bc the website has a counter for the number of visits. I spent so much time putting all the hotel/room block info on there for our Destination Wedding…I hope it wasn’t all in vain.
Have any of you fellow Bee’s found that your guests used your wedding website for information re: directions, attire and hotel accomodations?

@xoxovmarie: maybe they haven’t had time to go look at it yet.. Is your wedding date correct by your name? That’s a while away! I wouldn’t worry too much about it yet.

@legenwaitforitdary: haha Thanks for being rational. I need that sometimes 🙂 My concern is that although the wedding date is “far,” its high tourist season for our destination wedding in Key west. I want the guests to take advantage of the room blocks I’ve secured. I guess I need to be more patient – I’ve provided them with all the info and the rest is out of my control.

Was your website just listed on the STD, or was there a call to action, such as “Check out hotel and travel information on our website: xoxovmarie.com”? People usually need a bit of prompting, they may not think to go there if they don’t know why.
Also, your date isn’t for a longggg time, so they may have seen that and thought “I’ll do this later.” Don’t worry, they’ll come back when they’re in a better spot to think about next Feb. Don’t keep checking it everyday, you’ll drive yourself crazy!
I did my Save-The-Date Cards over email, so all people had to do was click the link. Got a very good click-through rate, and a handful of people booked their rooms immediately, 9 months early.

@xoxovmarie: hmmm well I bet people will go look at it this weekend when they have free time 😉

My website’s hit counter was VERY low up until invitations went out. I can’t tell you how many times people asked us about the hotel information and we’d say “oh yeah it’s all on the website… which was listed on the save the date.” Why? No idea!!

@xoxovmarie: My own family didn’t even realize my website was on the save the dates for a long time. Honestly, until it gets closer, people won’t really care alot. My family knew all of the stuff on the website, but my other guests probably didn’t really care until it was time to decide if they were going or not. Now almost 400 people have visited my site (with only 125 invited).
