Hi, bees! We’re including our wedding website on our Save the Dates, and we’ve decided to password protect two sections – the venue information page, and the guest information page. We like the idea of having the website available for our guests’ convenience, but we do want some sort of barrier between all of our wedding information and the outside world. Hence the pw.
I didn’t include the password ON the actual STD, but I am going to include a little insert. I thought about adding a line on the bottom of the insert that says, “We kindly ask that you do not share this information. Thank you!” or something along those lines.
But now my question is… Do you think including that line is rude and insulting? Do you think it’s unnecessary? Or am I just totally over-thinking this? I realize that most people would understand that having a password means that we’re sensitive about what information gets to whom. So I don’t want to offend anyone. However, there are certain people we’re pretty sure would have no problem sharing our information with everyone and their brother. And that’s what we are trying to avoid.

It’s probably not necessary. I would assume the people you’re trying to protect your information from are creepy cyber-stalkers, not your cousin’s cousin or your aunt’s best friend. I can’t see that your guests will have much cause to share your wedding information with anyone other than their own families anyway – what would be the point?
I don’t think there’s necessarily anything improper with putting a note in there about not sharing the password, but to me personally it might come off as slightly paranoid. I might wonder if I was going to visit your wedding website and find national secuurity secrets or something. 🙂

@GreenGables: Agreed. Technically I guess there’s nothing wrong with it, but it did put me off a little when I read through it. Just being honest. 🙂

@brideatbeach:Good, thank you! That’s all I needed to know. 🙂

I’d say ‘it depends.’ If it’s just so that any random person couldn’t find it, then it’s not required. But if there are certain people that you know personally and you do not want them to have the info, then a line such as you listed would be just fine. Some folks may assume that having a password is for ‘general purposes’ and feel like sharing with others is fine, but if it’s not, a little note would prevent it.

I think it’s unneccessary to tell them not to share it. I mean…who would they send it to that would care unless they’re part of the guest list anyway? Unless you’re Jessica Simpson, I doubt people will want to crash your wedding website ;).

@jo.lee:LOL! We definitely don’t think we’re that important!!! There’s really just one potential offender we have in mind, who has a tendency to over-share on facebook. I could see her posting a link to our site and including the password for everyone. Not that I think all of her fb friends would crash it or anything. (But I’m envisioning a tour bus full of strangers pulling up to our venue, ready to party, and I’m LOL’ing!) I don’t know… I guess I really am just making a big deal out of nothing.

which site did you use to password protect only parts of your website and not all?
