FI and I have been together 18 years. This is a second marriage for both of us but we decided to have a nice wedding since neither of us had that the first time around. We are financially stable, have lived together for 16 years and basically don’t need anything.
This wedding, to us, is just a celebration of love and life. We dont need or expect gifts so I was suprisedwhen people started asking about where we are registered! lol I told everyone no gifts but apparently I am taking the fun out of it for our friends so I caved and set up a registry.
Here’s my question – Do I put it on the wedding website or just tell people when they ask?

I had the same issue. People WANT to give gifts, so let them!!! I ended up adding a small registry on our website and letting people know when they asked.
Maybe you could tell key people that you’d like things like dinners at favorite restaurants, too…

the utmost in politeness is to tell people only when they ask.
But it is acceptable in some circles to put it on the website.

do both! Seems like you aren’t flaunting or pushing it, so I wouldnt be too concerned 🙂

In your place I would not register. But if you do, I would have it be something that people have to search out on their own or inquire about proactively.

I would put it on your website. On the page that lists the registry, you can always write something like, “your presence is the best present, but for those that would like, we have registered at the following stores.”

I would put it on your website. Indicate that you would only like well wishes, but add the link for those who would like to give you something in the registry section of the site.
