I need your input! I am having a destination wedding with only our immediate family and a small group of friends, but then we are returning home to have a big reception/celebration and inviting everyone.
On our wedding website I don’t really want everyone seeing all the details of the destination ceremony such as events, directions, where to stay… and all that, but is it really OK to password protect that part of the website so that only those invited to the ceremony can access it? If everyone invited to the wedding reception is able to go to our webpage will they wonder/be offended of they can’t see the details of the ceremony? Will they be offended if they CAN see the details of the ceremony if they are only invited to the reception??
Thanks for your help!

I think it would be a good idea to password protect that information since not everyone is invited and you don’t want any confusion. I’m sure that people won’t be offended that it isn’t open for them to see.

I think if you are having a small ceremony and a larger, more “public” reception then it is okay to password protect that information in a similar manner 🙂

In this situation I think I might make two websites. Is that something you’re willing to do?

I’m with Bella–I would opt to make two websites for sure.

Would it be possible to do 2 websites? That way people going just to the reception won’t see any ceremony info and you don’t have to worry about passwords. I’m thinking that if they go to a general website and are clicking around and get a pop-up box asking for a password, they may email you asking for it. Not in a rude way, but simply without realizing that some information is related only to the ceremony. So how about 2 totally different websites–assuming that some people are attending both, on the ceremony website you can have a link going to the reception so it’s easy for them to get to that page. If you set up the pages to look alike, ceremony people clicking on the link to the reception website might not even realize they’re going to a totally different website, and reception peeople won’t see any links to material they can’t access. (This is if you’re using a free or cheap wedding website–it’s probably not worth it to do 2 websites if you have to pay extra!)

whoops, just saw Bella and Virginia’s comments. Yes, I agree! 🙂
