          I havent sent them out yet, but I think I will put my registies on my Save the dates. I feel awkward as well, I dont want people to think that they have to get me a gift, but if they are going to anyway, shouldnt it be something you can use or that you want??

          Sorry, but I don't think you should put it on your Save the Dates. Yes, people are going to get you stuff anyways, but it's really bad etiquette to put it right on your invite. I would suggest registering at the normal stores, "Target, Linens N Things..." Stores that people typically would find registries at. You simply type in a name and find out if they are registered. It's easy.

            I agree. I would not like getting a save the date with registry info. I think you have to be extra careful with destination weddings. Most the people I sent save the dates to won't be going. I knew they wouldn't make it, but I wanted to include them anyway. If there was registry info on my STD, it would look like I wasn't trying to include them, but rather that I wanted a gift even though I knew they wouldn't make it.

            Also, save the dates are often really simple. Just the name, date & place. If it was name, date, place & registry info that could really look bad. Maybe if it's a really long detailed STD you can include some subtle registry info.

            I still think word of mouth & websites are the best way to get the information out there.

              yeah, the more I think about it, I dont think I will put the registry on the save the dates. What about the wedding shower invites? is that appropriate?

                I'm not having a shower so i'm not completely sure, but I think it's OK on shower invites. The shower invites usually come from the person hosting the shower, not the bride & groom. I think that is what makes the difference.
