Hello everyone! I need some advice!
I am sending out Save the Dates this week for my destination wedding!
I listed the website on the save the dates and I’m trying to get it ready and finished.
Should I include the ceremony and reception address on the website before I send out the invitations with this information?
I am already including the city and the hotel room block info but I am unsure if I should add the actual address of the place or just say something like “Upon sending formal invitations, ceremony and reception information will be added to this page. Please check back often for updates!”

Totally up to you. I’d probably include it because I wouldn’t want to have to remember to go in and change it, but either way is fine.

I included all of the details for the ceremoney and reception on my website. I figure if someone is interested enough to go to the website after getting a std I should provide as much info as possible.

Have everything available on the website when you send out the invitations. Most people aren’t likely to visit the wedding website multiple times unless they’re looking for something specific, like your registry information or addresses and maps. Have all the information up and available to avoid getting questions or forcing people to go back and look for updates.

OnceUponAHunt: I would just add all of the ceremony and reception information to the website! You’re really on the ball; shouldn’t all of your hard work organizing your wedding details make your life easier? I wouldn’t worry that guests will feel you are doing something too far in advance! They probably just think “Uh, can you plan my life for me, please!?”

I’d put it on the website. One of my ‘to-do’ list items is to make sure our website is totally up to date, organized and complete before Save-The-Date Cards go out

You will have 3,000,000 things to do closer to the wedding date. Save yourself a to-do and put the address up on the website, as well as any other information, as soon as you can.
Personally I plan on doing the same. We have had a very long engagement and our wedding website has been a work in progress for a while now. Because it will be a destination wedding for 95% of our guests, it makes even more sense for us to give out as much information as early as possible.
We intend to:
1. Email the Save-the-Dates as an inline picture, including a short message that links to our website (the Save the Date itself will not).
2. By then have up: Address & Map of Venue, Schedule of Events for that weekend, RSVP form (if people want to RSVP then – we would not ask them to do so, of course), “Our Story” blurb (that maybe one person will read, but still!), and recommended places to stay & activities in the area.
3. Mail out invitations with the website & RSVP deadline listed, by then including any further detailed/updated information as needed and an additional page entitled “Lost? Confused? Can’t Find Your Pants?” with contact information for some amazing person willing to field last-minute phone calls.
