    Hello everybody,


    My fiance and I currently live in Boston and are getting married this May in the Dominican Republic.  There will only be immediate family and a few close friends at the wedding and we plan to have receptions back home in Michigan and Washington where we are both from and here in Boston.  Neither of us are having bachelor or bachelorette parties and I am not having a wedding shower.  


    I am in the process of making invitations for our AHRs and would like to know what I should do about informing our guests about where we are registered.  Initially I thought it would be okay to put this information at the bottom of the card along with the RSVP info but EVERY website I have been reading says NOT to include any registration info on the invites. 


    I guess I'm just not sure if our situation is unique in that we're having 3 receptions, I'm not having a shower and we also do not have a wedding web page (I think I read that it would be appropriate to inform guests of a wedding web page and then put registration information there). 


    I certainly do not want to offend anyone.  I don't think people would be offended to have that info on the invite but I'm not sure what to do!  Any thoughts, comments or questions would be greatly appreciated!


    Thanks everyone :)

      Will you be having a wedding website?  If so, you can always attach your registry on the site (most will let you do this - I know weddingwire which I use definitely does.  You can always include your wedding website on the invites.

        I would create a wedding website, then you can put on the invite "see more details at www.?????.com"  where you can have your registry information linked!

            I'm sort of in the same boat except I really don't want a registry (its traditionally cash on my side) but my fiance's family insists (and for whatever reason they are not interested in "passing the word").  Putting it on a wedding website sounds like a good compromise.  However, is there a way to steer people to cash?  I don't want people who were going to give us cash feel pressured in doing the registry -- plus I prefer cash.

              There are several registries that can list cash - MyRegistry.com is one that lets you designate a purpose (Honeymoon fund/Home Down Payment fund/etc.) for cash gifts.  You can also link to registries at several different stores to add items for those that would prefer to buy a gift rather than cash.
