Best way to tell about registry?
Posted 09 May 2007 - 09:19 AM
I am of the mindset that most people get gifts when they go to a wedding. Rather than have them guess where we are registered or have them just buy us something random, I put together an online registry site to pass out the details. I think it is in my signature below.
He isn't a big fan. Any advice? I know there are lots of different opinions on this one but I wanted to hear from some of you.

You CAN include that info in invitations for any bridal showers etc that are thrown for you.
I think it's totally appropriate to have that info on your wedding website. . .however, if that's the ONLY purpose of the website (like it doesn't include any other travel info, pics of you guys, stories etc.) then I can see why your FI would be hesitant. Also, in that case, I wouldn't go around telling people to check out the site because if there's only registry info on there, they may feel like it's a big hint or shopping list. BUT that being said, if people are asking where you're registered I think it would be fine to tell them, and let them know the info is in your website as well.
I know that seems kind of sketchy and round-about but that's kinda how weddings are sometimes! lol!

Our site lets us add a few photos and info regarding our wedding. I can also upgrade it to a full wedding website so as i get more time i can add stuff to it.
I agree with your advice. I am not going to put it on the invitations but may add it to save the date cards and emails to friends.
It is one of those tough things. You don't want to tell people where you are registered, but most people will eventually need to know. I would rather give out that info then end up with 30 vases

It's just so much easier. I always hate having to hunt down wedding registry info. I rather the bride and groom just give it to me.

We have had people just ask us/or parents directly. This has gone over just fine.
If you're having a shower, I would obviously put it on there.
