I’ve thought about doing one but never got around to it. My question is what is the purpose behind having one if all the people I would be showing the website to would be people I’m inviting to the wedding and therefore getting wedding invitations? Or am I just crazy?

for a lot of people, honestly, i think it is to post registry info. i think this is a good thing, because it isn’t “in your face” and is just informative. same with hotel block info.

It’s a good place to provide extra information about your wedding that you couldn’t/didn’t want to include in the invitation: directions, accomodatios nearby, registry info, the story of how you all met, information about the rehearsal dinner, etc.

Personally we’re using the website in place of all the additional “bits” that go inside an invitation. We’re using the website to organize our RSVPs — no paper ones!, tell people which hotels are in the area that have our group rate, let people know a bit about the activities going on, list our registry, and tell my family and friends a bit about Mr. BlueBicycle since most of them haven’t been able to meet him yet — we’ve been living abroad for the last little while.
We are going to use http://www.weddingjojo.com, but glosite.com is also popular.
Oh, and as my good friend said to me, “Wedding websites are good for people like me — because I lose stuff.”

I’m making one mostly for the hotel information. My wedding is over Labor Day in a vacation-type town, so a lot of the places book up pretty early, far before we’d send out invitations. I’m including the website in the STD, so that way people can go book hotel rooms early.

Since we got married on a cruise ship, I used mine for info about the cruise we were taking in case anyone who wanted to join us needed more info & for info for out of town guests. It’s also a good idea for all info to be on the website in case your wedding invitation is “misplaced” by your guests & they can get last minute directions, etc.

Honestly, the registry information was a big part of it for me. However, a lot of guests have signed our guest book and have said how much they enjoyed looking through our engagement pictures and the album I posted of various pictures of us from our dating/college days. I also posted directions to the church and reception, and other information that didn’t go on the invitations (ie, registries…)
We used http://www.mywedding.com.

The purpose of our website is to share how we met stories, introduce the bridal party, give background info to the site we’re getting married (McMenamin’s Edgefield in Oregon has so much history!), list our honeymoon registry, and share a collection of favorite photos.
I used website tonight from godaddy.com, it was an awkward website builder, but it’s done and I love how it looks! We even have a song playing that has special meaning to us that we get to share.
