We only put the registry information on the Bridal Shower invitations and the BM's know so that if some one were to ask them!
Is anyone having a wedding registry? How did you word it on the invite?

Hi! There is another thread about this topic already -- I definitely would look up those conversations. You're not alone in feeling uncomfortable about registering. I agree with the others on this thread; don't include registry info on your invites, but do include your website. On your website you can list the following message (or one like it) followed by your registry info:
If you are traveling with us for our wedding, your presence is the absolute best gift we could ever ask for. Gifts are welcome but certainly not expected. We are grateful to be surrounded by such wonderful people, and we cannot wait to celebrate with you all.
I wish I could claim that wording -- I got it from another BDW bride (and I wish I could give her credit but I forget who it was!).

I did not include registry info on the invites at all. At first I didn't make one since I figured people would travel and we didn't want gifts, but then those who could not attend (and some who could attend) insisted on getting us gifts so I made a small registry. But I would not include it on the invite. Those who want to get you something will ask you where you are registered. Of course there were those who did not attend and did not ask for the registry but that's ok as well.

I'm on the same boat as many brides- at first, I felt totally guilty about registering and wasn't even considering it. After some pressure from my mil, mob, and moh, I do understand their point. As Marlena said, I don't want to seem greedy, but also don't want to end up with a bunch of unwanted or unneeded items. My fiance and I already live together, have a house, and don't need more kitchen towels, lol. If people are going to buy you things anyway (mostly those who can't attend the wedding), it may as well be items that are useful. We just wont register for any expensive items...

We initially did not want to register either, since we have a lot of the things we need already, but people who are unable to make it to the DW kept asking me where we were registered because they still wanted to get us something. We ended up registering for a small number of items. I only included the info on the website and told people if they asked.
