We included a “For More Information” line on our Save The Dates and will be doing the same for our invites.

This is what we did- we sent out save-the-dates and at the bottom was the link to our wedding website.  And on the wedding website was a place to put the registries.  Most of them should include an option for a registry page it so check it out.  Also, if someone is throwing you a shower, they can include that info with the invitations.  I think typically, if a guest wants to know where you’re registered, they’ll ask.  Either they ask you or friends/family.  So make sure your family and your bridal party know too.  Hope that helps!

We put our website link on the STD and included in the invitation.  Not on the invitiation itself though, on our map.

Another option: We have passed out some registry cards to our parents, some of the wedding party, and my House Party.

We have our registery info tucked away on our FAQ page of our website.

I know it’s not “etiquette” but everyone I’ve ever known just include a business card size with the invitation suite and no one has ever balked at the idea.  I think sometimes etiquette is a little outdates honestly.  I didn’t know it was a “no-no” until I started looking on wedding websites that you shouldn’t do that, but really, any guest–who are spread all over the country–would be confused as to why I didn’t include that information.  Why do you think most places hand out little cards for you to include them in with the invitations?  Personally though, I think a single card with the several places is better.

You can list your website on the save-the-dates, or on an insert card with the invitation (as long as the actual registry information is never printed on anything in the invitation suite – major faux pax).

Your shower hostesses can also print the actual registry information on your shower invites.

Hope that helps!

We listed our registry information on our website.  Our save the dates include our web address, so it should be easy for people to figure that our.  I’m having a few showers and the shower hostesses are printing the registry information on the shower invites. 

We’re also having our webaddress printed on one of the enclosures in our invitations, also clueing everyone in.

We are not using any of the registry inserts.

I didn’t have a website because a ton of people coming don’t really do internet anyway, but that is a really good idea! It will help anyone out who isn’t coming to the shower but still wants to give you a gift for at the reception.

We included the information on my shower invitations though

From what I’ve read on here before, there are some areas in the country where including a registry card with the invite is common, like Curlysue said. However, if that’s not the case, I think putting it on the website is the best option, along with word of mouth. We put the website address on both our Save-The-Date Cards and on a separate info card in the invite suite.

I am thinking of including little cards with the invitations…something like “we are registered @….”
