So, we sent out or Save-The-Date Cards months ago. They were postcards with the address of wedding website I painstakingly labored over printed on them. Twice. Once on each side. Seemed to us that no matter which way you looked at it, noticing the web address seemed inescapable. Even so, people regularly ask us about things like what hotel they should stay at. When we reply that they should check the website for the exact information, they continually respond, “What website?”
And I thought we had such smart friends. So, am I the only one in this boat, or do other bees have similar stories?

Well, I certainly didn’t mean to scare anyone. I am hoping that once we send our invitations out in January (with the website prominently listed, again) people will start to take the hint. I’ll let you know how it goes.

What wedding website do you use? nurseamanda do you have a good website for magnet STDs?

@Girlinlove– I replied to your other post too, but just in case, I used mywedding.com. Love the site, just wish people would go there!

No one knew about our wedding website, either. 😉 People are not terribly observant all the time.

No one noticed my website either! We continually got questions about where we are registered and basically no one booked rooms out of the block we set aside. Thankfully, we didn’t have to pay for unbooked rooms!

I’m positive that this is going to happen with our families – to the point that it’s really tempting to change the message for my cell’s voicemail… "Hi, you’ve reached Serya. If you are calling with questions about the wedding please visit our website, http://www._____.___. Buh-bye!"

We had this problem, too. It seemed like we got questions every week leading up to the wedding about where we were registered, where they should book rooms, directions for how to get there, etc. It was annoying, especially after we’d put the information right on the invitation. Just one of those things, I guess…just like knowing that no matter when you send them out, you will never get 100% response rate for your RSVPs.

the story of my life
and once they did find the website, you have no idea how many people asked for the password. It’s on the STD and it says on the website it’s the groom’s last name … also on the STD.

Well, I’m glad other people are having problems. Now I’ll know what to expect and won’t get frusterated with my guests (especially older ones) who don’t know where to look!
Maybe we should include a hotel enclosure in the invites down the road too…

UGH! SAME thing happened with us. Not only that, but people are asking WHEN the date is. Seriously people? What do you think is sitting on your fridge door? The date is on there! Other people are wondering when we’re sending out our invites so they can get their plane tickets. I told them, “well, that’s why we sent out our save the dates early, so you could book your tickets!” I don’t understand people. Sheeesh
