wedding website might not be worth the money...

Recommended Posts

We thought that a lot of people would visit our wedding website, and therefore put some time and effort into building it. we also put some $ in it as well. (about 125 bucks for our own domaine name for 2 years and a year and a half for wedding window to host it)

 

but so far we've had like 10 people visit it! i seriously thought that right after people got our STDs that our website activity would boom... not so much.

 

is this typical? i'm thinking maybe we should have saved some moola and wend with a free one

Some people looked at ours, but it's kinda relative. We didn't have too many invites anyway...It was frequented more by the people that WEREN'T coming! And, it's been visited quite regularly since the wedding by people looking for pictures, etc. Was it a waste of $? Maybe, but it was still fun so I didn't get too bent out of shape.

it took a while, but as the wedding got closer, we got tons of visitors. I will visit your site, what is it?

Ours is the same way. We have had a couple of people RSVP on it (thought this would be easier for people to do rather than mail it back). Guess I am going to have to do the mail thing...I still think its nice to have especially once the wedding gets closer for people to have the information available.

I didn't bother to do a wedding website. To me, it was wasted money. However, I already have hosting space, so I could have just registered a domain name and forwarded to one of my exisiting hosting sites.

 

However, I think a smart idea would be to pick a non wedding name. Like jackandjill.com as opposed to jackandjillswedding.com. Or thesmiths.com. That way you can still the domain after the wedding for a post-wedding site. You could continue it as a "family website." Blogs, pictures of you, your pets. If you have kids you can put a section which focuses on that aspect of your life, etc. Also, if you guys have family parties (ie at christmas, thanksgiving, etc.) you can include all that info on your site as well.

I didn't do a website either. I was just going to do one of the free ones, but I was really lazy and just didn't feel like doing it. If we had more people going then maybe I would have really put the time in to finish it so that people could get answers to their questions there, but I just really had no desire to do it.

 

I bet you'll get more visitors as your wedding gets closer.

we did one but it cost us very little as DH is a web developer etc...

 

we had ALOT of people visit it but our crowd is younger, tech sauvy...even DH's grandmother checks her email everyday.

 

we had places to SVP, comments, pics, etc...and it is now, now just a wedding site, but baby site, family site...

 

i agree that once you get closer to the date, people will start checking it out.

 

whenever we updated the site we sent a group email saying that we updated the site etc.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
