From my personal experience that part is the most frustrating, trying to get ppl to check out the website. Even if people checked out our website half of them didn't pay attention to the page about how to book and just called me or called our TA. It sucks because we put all the effort into making a website which was to help the guests but they don't pay attention to the details!
Anyway we are sending out postcards with a reminder about checking the website for booking details and to RSVP but on the opposite side it's a STD for our AHR. My sister makes everything for me, very lucky! ok I cant figure out how to attach the pictures if you want I can e-mail them to you!
It might be tacky but I post a lot of reminders on Facebook just saying "remember to check the website RSVP's are due soon". We initially put a RSVP date of November 1st because that was 3 months prior to our wedding date but now I'm just saying payments are due 30 days prior if someone asks.

This troubles me because bookings need to be paid in FULL by mid Dec in order to count towards our bookings, apparently! Eeeeek!
So, the FI and I have decided to send out fun postcards to everyone as a "reminder" to check our site, while keeping it fun. One side will have our old Cancun treasure map on it that we used as the background for our invitations, and the other side will be the postcard message.
I'm thinking that the message will say something like:
What treasure have you found on our website yet?
- Easy hotel booking
- New Packing List page!
- Test out your Spanish skills...
- All travel info you need
Then list the website and password. I'm thinking though that it may not be enough incentive for them to look at the website NOW. So I was thinking of adding an RSVP deadline on there - maybe November 20th or something?? What do you think would entice them to look at our website without being all "Look at our website NOW" LOL!!!
