We are getting married in a very rural area, and there are no large hotels, just cabins and B&B’s, so I compilied a list of accommodations and put them on our website. Instead of having an accommodation card, I was going to include a tag around our inivtiation (we’re wrapping with baker’s twine) that said “For more information, visit our website.” I made the website through mywedding.com and it has a page for registry information which I currently have active. Is it in bad taste to direct guests to the website, then have the registry page on the website?
I didn’t even think about it until someone on another site said it was tacky. Should I take it down? If I’m making guests go to the website, is it the equivalent of including registry information on the invitation?

We are doing that. I don’t think its tacky

No, this is perfectly fine. You shouldn’t put registry info directly on the invitation (i.e. a line that says “X & Y are registered at Williams-Sonoma and Target”, etc.) but it’s perfectly acceptable to put your website on the invitation, and let guests find your registry through your website.

Nope, Martha say’s it’s all good…as long as the registry info is on one of the last pages of your site.
We’re doing it too.

The entire idea of a website is to make life easier for your guests, so I think the registry makes perfect sense!

I have a page on our website that has a little poem so people can see why we have done a honeymoon registry, and then I provided the link. I think it’s the way the times are now. People want all the information in one easy location and a website is the norm. If you want it so be it, what are guests going to do? be offended you gave them information they will ultimately ask for? I was a bit concerned about this at first, but after talking to some relatives they think it is a fantastic idea and they are glad it’s so easy. Maybe ask a few people in passing to get a feel for your group, everywhere/ everyone is different
