Do your guests already know where you are registered?  Or will the Out of Town bags/front desk be the first they’ll know about it?

I wouldn’t include it. Most people won’t be expecting it anyway and if they plan to get you a gift after arriving chances are they can google map the stores from their phone.

I wouldn’t put that info in the bags, it comes off a little presumptuous. I would think most people traveling far enough to spend the night at a hotel are going to give you cash and a card.

I would leave that information off. Put it on your website or have people ask for it. IMO…having it in their welcome bag pretty much says “And if you forgot to buy us a gift, you better do it before coming to the wedding. Walk here”

Registries are only meant to be revealed if you are asked.  It should never be provided unsolicited.

Yeah, I think that could come across as tacky.  I think most people who plan on shopping once they get there would look up where the stores were online, or just ask the concierge. By putting it in the Out of Town bag, it could sound like you are saying “Don’t forget to buy us presents,” even if that isn’t your intention.

Don’t include it. Like the PP said, the registry should only be revealed if asked. Plus, you’re not technically supposed to bring gifts to the wedding anyway. It’s also bad etiquette. They should be shipped ahead of or shortly after the wedding.

Don’t put your registry information in.  However, you could put a small guide to nearby shopping spots and include them along with a couple others.  That way they know the places are there and if they know you’re registered there, they can readily shop.  But by having it as a shopping guide to the area with other stores listed it doesn’t come off as a gift grab Smile
