    We had all of our STDs printed up with www.MartinAndJaime.MyEvent.com on them. Well I'm going to order the full year package from My Event and they are having a special where they will give you a free unique domain name (so for example it could just be www.MartinandJaime.com instead of www.MartinAndJaime.MyEvent.com).

    What do I do?? I would love to have the unique domain name but all of our STDs are printed, stamped, stickered and ready to be sent. All we were waiting on was the website! Grrrr. We're sending out about 80 invites so it'd be difficult to contact every single person about the change.

    Advice...? What would you do?

      I would stick with what you have printed already to save yourself the headache of contacting everyone with the change. As cute as it would be to have something else, I'm all about less stress, so I'd stick with the first one. JMO

        I would ask them if they will direct the traffic from the .myevent site to your unique site?

          If they cant' direct the traffic. Maybe you can just print out a little business card that says "Sorry but our webiste has been changed to..." and stick that in the STD's. I would say keep it the way it is but the unique name will be so much easier for guests to remember later.

            Well, you could see if they will redirect it like Jenn suggested, or you could change it and just add in a separte card with the new website (if your envelopes aren't sealed), or just leave it the way it is.

            Really, the .myevent address isn't that bad, so if it is going to be a really big headache, I would just leave it the way it is.

              i'd say leave it the way it is, i dont think its bad at all. the thing that is making you panic, is that YOU know you have another option to change that name to be "cuter" and thats why you're stressing, but no one would even know what it could have been so .. kwim? so i'd leave it alone and save yourself the stress... ;o)

                Excellent suggestions ladies :)

                I will try contacting them and explaining my situation.

                Unfortunately I just sealed the envelopes yesterday

                I do agree that a simpler address would be much easier for guests to remember in the long run and would love to have it that way! But if it is too much trouble or I just can't make it happen then I guess I will have to keep it as is...

                I'm totally kicking myself right now

                  i would just leave it the way it is. it's still an easy name to remember. plus i bet people bookmark it anyway, so really i would say it's not worth the hassle.

                    Depending on how many people you've booked, you could shoot them an e-mail telling them of the change. If that's a pain in the butt, I really wouldn't worry about it. Remember, the guests aren't concerned about the domain name, just the info on it No worries!

                      LEAVE IT! Honestly the name you have now sounds totally fine, its not too long and if people are planning to go back to it often they will most likely bookmark it! Thats my 2 cents for ya
