I think it’s ok to put it on the website. You can always say something along the lines of “gifts are not necessary” but honestly it would seem a bit disingenuous on a gift & registry page.

@BriansBride:  I think the real issue here is that you are having a shower.  A shower is a party where the literal theme is to shower you with presents.  You don’t go to a shower without a gift, so it’s a total mixed message to have a shower and say you don’t want gifts.  You could call the shower something different, if you really don’t want gifts.

@BriansBride:  Aww! You sound like such a sweetheart. I think it’s completely fine to stick your registry info on the website. And I agree with your friend–If you’re having a shower, you need a registry!

@BriansBride:  In my opinion, that’s a big part of the reason for having a wedding website haha!  Since you can’t put registry info in the invites and it’s rude for you to just tell people “go shop here for me!” that’s the #1 thing I use a friend’s wedding website for haha!

@BriansBride:  I put my registry info on my wedding website and have zero regrets.  People will probably assume you have a registry if you’re getting married, so I don’t see how posting where the registries are is offensive or bad manners.  It’s usually included in the shower invitation anyways, so having it on the website is no big deal, IMHO.

Definitely put the registry information in the wedding website.

Some people do not like to give cash as a wedding present.  The registry will give a guest the ability to purchase a gift that you might actually use.

I got a bunch of engagement gifts prior to the creation of my registry. I have no use for any of these items.  To avoid the same thing happening to you at your wedding, make your registry known…….

@BriansBride:  we have our registry listed on the website and the maid/matron have the info as well. I don’t think it’s a big deal

@BriansBride:  You could have a shower without it being a shower – just call it a kitchen party or something else.  Another option is to make it a specific type of shower – for example, everyone brings their favorite recipe and you get a cook book out of it, and that’s all they are requested to bring.

I think it’s perfectly fine to put registry information on the website. That’s where we put it, and we also included a honeymoon registry.

Putting registry info is fine. What about asking her to do a non traditional shower though? Everyone could bring recipes for you and some food cans for donations. Most people will then see you don’t need household items and also give you some money which you can then use for your honeymoon or upgrading household items at your leisure.

If you do not want a shower, just ask her to host a bridal luncheon for you and get together with your favorite people that way. If you use the word shower, people will bring gifts.

We put our registries on our website. You have to click through to see them. There’s no mention of “gifts” it just says “The bride and groom are registered with….”
