Even though it may be an inconvience for you to ship them I wouldn’t do more than mention it if people ask.

I think you could mention it on your wedding website with registry information because if they’re ordering online it’s no big deal BUT if someone buys something locally then they’d have to pay to ship it to your house.

When it comes to gifts nothing should be required of guests, although I’m sure many would understand your situation. Perhaps you could register for a lot of “online” only items – so then it won’t be a big deal for them to have them shipped to you.

i agree with camrie, i wouldn’t ask them to ship it. i hate paying for shipping when i don’t have to, and i don’t feel that it’s fair to ask that of your guests.

I don’t think there’s a way to flat-out ask people to ship gifts, but you can let your immediate family know (and especially his mother, since that’s probably who his side will ask), that you would prefer to have gifts shipped to your house rather than the wedding.

My Maid/Matron of Honor is getting married in NJ and lives in New Orleans, so she’s facing a similar issue.  She and her fiance just posted their address on their wedding website, right next to the registry stuff, and mentioned that this was their new home… hint hint.  Not sure if I’d do that, just for privacy/safety reasons, but it’s an option.
