      Maybe not the best help on this, but we felt similarly (but family and friends said we MUST register)  so we did and we just put a link on the website that says we're registered for some "traditional wedding items" at XXXX.  We kept the registry really to things like china and silverware (which we wouldn't get otherwise).  But we're not otherwise mentioning that we're registered to anyone unless they specifically ask and making it known to through conversation that we DO NOT expect gifts.

Any suggestions as for how to word this so it comes out right?

        Hmmm this is a tricky one. Here is what I did. I sent out registry cards with our invites. Then as people book with our Travel agent she tells me and I made this cute postcards that say Thank you for Booking your Trip to OUr wedding :) I then write a thank you note to that person and some where in there I mention. Your attendance is all the gift you need to bring to Mexico.

        Hope that helps or at least helps the brainstorming get going.

          Jenn,

           

          How long will you be there? We are getting married on May 20th but we will be arriving on the 17th. We booked our guest on the Sunrise side but we are staying on the Grand side (they want to party but we want quiet time when needed)

            What a sweet thing to do! I might copy the thank you note, but probably by email since most of our guests live so far away. I have added links to our registries on our "registry page" on our website, but still have not found a text/wording that a like...

              Oh, no!! I just got so excited because I thought someone would be there the same week as me.  Then I realized we are leaving the day before you arrive.  My fiance and I are arriving on the 9th and leaving the 16th!

              Jenn,

                That is a really  nice idea.  I didn't even think to do that.  I may have to steal this as well.  As for the registry, I'm letting my BMs handle all of this.  They can include the registry info on the shower invites.

                  Everyone seems to know where they are staying.  I do not know what my TA is doing, but she told me that we will not know which section we are in until everyone books.  She assured me there is a room block.  I'm confused.  She says she has booked a bunch of wedding at Moon, so I guess I just have to trust her.
                   


                   


                   I just got my contract for the room block...not sure which side we will be on, Have to discuss this with my TA. We will be arriving may 11th and leaving for honeymoon may 17th.

                      That's great!! I was hoping someone on the site would be there the same time!  How far along are you in planning?   You are getting married on the 15th is that right?  I've talked to so many people on here I get everyone confused.  Are you also using Octavio as your photographer?
