Give me the DL about wedding websites!
Are they necessary? Or just silly? I thought they were silly when I saw my FI’s best friends’ website for their wedding last year, but now that were planning the wedding I’m curious! Is it tacky to say where you’re registered on the invite? Or is that where the website comes in?
Help a girl out!

Gabrielle713: We have a wedding website and it’s been super useful. We had an online RSVP on the website and that’s where all of the info was. Where/when the wedding was and info about how to get there, room blocks, bridal party and information on the registry.
We used http://www.mywedding.com I can pm you our link if you’d like to look at it?

Gabrielle713: I don’t think it’s tacky, but that’s me. I know that one of our friends did a website, but on the save the date, she had the website on it (and that’s where she put she was registered). The entirety of the website was clearly written by the bride though. Which I felt was odd since I thought they both would have wanted to write on it. Another friend kept it simple by adding in an insert that stated where they were registered.

I’m only including where I’m registered on the website, not on the actual invitation itself.

It’s in line with etiquette to have one and to have a link to the registry. It’s a helpful tool for guests to have all the info incase the invite is lost, and especially if there’s a lot of neccessary info for traveling guests.

We have one but we absolutely needed one (destination wedding). There’s no way we could have mailed out 100000 pages of information, plus it gives space for a FAQ section and a way for people to ask questions easily.

I really like wedding websites! We have one that we made through google sites. It has helpful info about travelling to the wedding, and it’s nice to provide info to our guests about us and about how we met. Plus, there’s also a section for RSVPing. Of course, even with all the reasons I love our wedding website, actual guests probably spend just a few minutes on it, but I hope it has beneficial info for them.

Gabrielle713: We had a wedding website where we put all the important info and included the option for people to RSVP online (we also sent response cards).
To be honest, I think the ones with all the details “how we met” “the proposal” “photo gallery” etc. are incredibly cheesy. I like the basic ones w/the facts that I can refer to if need be.

Gabrielle713: We have a full website because that’s essential our invitation! That’s where people will get all the info for the wedding and they have to RSVP there as well! We love the idea of a website as our “invitation” because people are so tech-friendly today and it makes it easier to keep track of everything. Oh and our registry information is on there as well.

We had a wedding website, I think it was really helpful for guests, especially since it was at least a 1.5 hour drive “destination” for practically all of our guests, around half came from much farther. And it was a busy weekend in the city, and our ceremony and reception were in completely different places (we provided a shuttle).
I’m totally guilty of writing 99% of it, with a bit of editing by Darling Husband, cheesy “our story” section and all. You don’t like it, don’t read it, I really don’t care. But I was touched that DH’s aunt, whom I had only met once before, said that she really enjoyed reading it all. And we’re far from the first couple that put the website totally in the girly bride’s hands.

I’m not having one, but I would consider our wedding pretty low key and small.
It is rude to put registry info anywhere on the invite. Either include it on the website, or plan on spreading it through word of mouth. If Aunt Sally wants to get you a gift, she will either find you online, or ask you if you are registered, or ask your mom if you are registered.

I’ve heard from several of our guests how useful our wedding website has been. I purchased a domain from Weebly for one year, and I might keep it and turn it into a blog, I love our little slice of the internet : )
I used Miss Hen’s website as a guide. There are tabs on what our wedding will be like, our relationship timeline with pics, hotels, travel information, an online RSVP, registries, and local retaurants/things to do. I highly recommend one! PM me for a link, I’d be happy to share.

thank you ladies!!! All very good input! We are having a fairly large wedding about 160 people. Not to mention our venue is not reccomended for ladies in heels so I can put that info on there too!
I’m pretty sure now were gonna have a website- maybe I’ll stick a few of our engagement photos up there… 😀

Gabrielle713: i personally like them, think they’re cute, and also helpful for people like me who end up losing a friends weddingb invitation with addresses, directions etc. Plus you can add all kinds of cute pictures, little shout outs to friends and family members and include registry info. I think they are a big do!

I love the idea of a wedding website, but then again I’m a Web developer by profession. haha..
but it is super useful since our entire guest list is traveling for the wedding. And I don’t care how “cheesy” it is, I think it’s nice for guests who may not know both the bride and groom to learn a little bit more about them.
