Registry Questions...Help Please!!!
Posted 09 May 2010 - 04:14 PM
SO....this leads me to a few questions/dilemmas.
Do we register?
If so, we don't want to haul home/have to ship home wedding gifts...it would end up costing a TON!
Would it be improper etiquette to register, seeing everyone isn't invited to the wedding?
If we don't register, will invitees be confused as to what to do about wedding gifts?
I'm going to be sending out the AHR invites soon.....so I am trying to decide what to do about the registry so I can include another enclosure if I do register!
AHHHHHH! this is so confusing. I really don't know what to do, because I don't want to look tacky or offend anyone. HELP !!!!!
Thanks for all and any input anyone can provide!!!

I agree that if you tell a few key people that gifts should be sent to your home and not brought to the AHR, the word will get spread.

But this leads me to my next question... I've read a lot on here about registry etiquette and how to spread the word. I know a lot of people think it's tacky to include a card with the formal invite and that the way to go is either via website, word of mouth, same as shower invites, etc. HOWEVER...I'm not having a shower, and a lot of our guests are not frequent internet users so they probably wouldn't even look at the wedding website (seriously!)
That leaves me with either word of mouth or enclosing something with the formal invite. Or maybe another option I am not thinking of? This is so frustrating! LOL
Thanks for all the help!

And if you don't register, people will just buy stuff for you that they *THINK* you want/need. I created a registry and even so, several people decide to gift me things I don't like and have no use for.
Macy's has a great registry and people can go to their local Macy's and buy stuff there without going online and just have Macy's ship it to your address. It makes things much easier IMO.
