    @wederly:  I have but at work. I can usually find a way to fix it. In this case I voted you are lucky because I would be taken aback to receive someone’s registry info with a STD. It’s a bit too early to tell people where you want stuff from. I would just add the inserts into the bridal shower invitations.

    All is not lost, it’s only April! Maybe someone will host a shower for you? You can also ask your parents and your in laws to spread the word about your registries, which is what etiquette dictates anyway. Is it too late for you to make a website? It’ll help them spread the word about your registries.

     

    I totally know how you feel though, I just started my registries (why are they so freaking difficult to make), and I wouldn’t want them to go to waste either.

    @wederly:  ohhh…I will admit I was thinking you are nuts but wouldnt say it bc that would be snarky. Haha! Ok, like a PP said (and also me) put it in your shower invites. That’s when people bring an actual “gift” anyway (atleast in my area). For weddings people will bring cash/checks/gift cards. Also, a wedding website can take you about 10-15 minutes to make so you can do that quickly. On top of that…word of mouth : )

    Good Luck!

    I dont know who voted tacky.

    That just sucks.

    Maybe let your familys and BMs know you need to spread the word re: where you are registered and have them mention it to people.

    Don’t worry! A simple google search and you can find anyone’s registry! My FMIhoodie the same and everyone bought off my registry. Everyone! They went by word of mouth. My MOH threw me a shower that included the info and half went off registry. You just never know either way!

    @wederly:  Can you make a small website with “extra details” like what to wear, etc. and include the registry on that, and then e-mail all your guests letting them know that if they need any extra info, to look there?

    Don’t worry. People will definitely ask (either you or your family) where you’re registered. The people who don’t ask probably would have gone rogue anyway. You’ll always get some off-registry gifts, no matter what.

    Don’t worry…even though I had not planned on using registry inserts and didn’t even get any, my mom took it upont herself to add the info to all the invitations using clear address labels….uggh! =(( Still, hardley anyone used the registries…In my opinion more than one registry is a huge waste of time….(I had 3 and worked really hard on them) people mostly gave cash, which is fine with me!
