If you have registry info on your site, I’d say this is ok. I think people generally ship to the couple’s home anyway.

My friends did this and I didn’t think it was rude at all!  They put on their registries their home address, so when I ordered  it, it shipped to them.  I can’t remember how they worded it, so that’s not too helpful, but I think it’s becoming more and more common to do it like this!

We will have to do this as well.  I was just going to add a note on our wedding website to please have our gifts shipped. With having a wedding far from where you live, I don’t see how guests could think it is rude. They should understand that you can’t travel back with a load of gifts. Also, they do have the option to gift you with money instead.

I think that most people would do this anyway, I would never want to burden a couple with having to ship home a gift just so it could be at their reception. If you don’t have the info on your regestry perhaps you could have family members quietly spread the word that you would appreciate it if everything was sent to your home.
