    We didn't password protect our wedding website. There was no information on there besides the date, which has been on our social media, so it's not a secret. We didn't give directions, put the time of the ceremony, or our venue. You could probably figure out our venue based on the surrounding hotels, but we don't have anyone who isn't invited that we're worried about crashing our wedding or anything, so it didn't seem necessary.

    Daughter did password protect. They didn't want random people to easily find all the details. Their guest list max was 100 people (and half of that was family). Knowing there were people might expect to be, but who weren't going to be invited to the wedding, they tried to be fairly low key about sharing details to minimize the questions and comments. Except for the fact that they got engaged, they didn't post info about the wedding on social media.

    I'm going to password protect mine because, by the time of the wedding, I'll be working as a therapist and don't want clients to be able to find such personal info. I want to maintain my and my partner's privacy.

    We did not password protect it but did made it not searchable so the only way you can find the site is my typing the full url in. Googling our names won’t pull it up

    Were not concerned about anyone crashing so didn’t see the need for a password but do want some level of privacy

    We password protected ours because we've been married before and didn't want our exes to know all the details of the wedding.

    I think I will just because I have a few unsavory characters who may try to find information and crash the party

    I did password protection and didn't make it visible in a Google search either. I think I just liked having all that privacy aha

    I have password protection on ours as well, I like to have privacy and I didn't want one my exes to know when/where I was getting married.

    Certain portions of the wedding website are actually password protected such as the wedding venue, and the rsvp portion. I don't want random individuals or people that have caused us issues in the past to be able to access this information. We're pretty serious about this.Smiley laugh

    There are a lot of nosey people around us and I didn’t want people to have access to that information. Some of our friends would show up to the hotel although they’re not invited or people will act like guests just to see if they can get in. Other people would just snoop and we’re not sharing It with them. So, we chose to password protect our site.

    Yes, NO and yes!! I really like it. It's simple, and the layout is great. I haven't seen any ads and you can create your own domain.
