We are about to send out our STD’s, which will include info for our Destination Wedding. I went and made sure it’s all up to date and sounds right and wondered if I should include registry information there? Or wait until about 3 months before our wedding? Or not at all?
I figure at this point if someone wants to know where we are or will registered, they can ask and then we can just tell them…does that sound ok?
Thank you! =)

We included it on our homepage and that is mainly how people learned about our registries.
Personally, I am grateful when couples list their registires in an easy to access spot. I like perusing their registries and taking my time to figure out what I would like to gift them. Although our registries were listed on our homepage over half a year before the event, gifts only started arriving starting at about 3 months before the wedding.

We included it on a page called “Registry” and wrote a little paragraph thanking them.

Wedding websites are a great way to tell people where you’re registered without putting it in the invitation which is an etiquette faux pas in many areas. I’d go ahead and put it on your website. Some friends and loved ones who cannot attend, might still wish to get you a gift. If you have a shower, people will want to know for then. And myself, if it’s a destination wedding, I usually gift the couple at home before or after and just do a card at the actual wedding so no one has to lug the item to and from on a plane.

We put our registry link up on our website shortly after we finished registering. Then I didn’t have to think about it again and guests could find the information easily whenever they wanted to.

When we eventually do our registry we will put it on our site. We have a little note up about how we’ve still got time to take care of that so hold tight and check back for updates for the time being.

@Coral99: We put our registry info on a “Registry” page on our website, and it worked out really well – most people didn’t even ask us where we were registered, they just figured it out from our website.
We went to 5 other weddings last year, and all of them had registry info on the website. I loved it because it made it so easy to click on the link to their registry, rather than having to remember which store it was (SO.MANY.WEDDINGS!) and search for them. I think there’s definitely a convenience factor for your guests! And it doesn’t hurt to add the link now. Some guests may want to go in on a bigger gift, and they’ll need to know your registry info to know how much money to pool together.

Yep! You can (and I’d argue should) put your registry info on your website. It’s a really easy way for guests to figure out where you are registered yet it’s polite because it’s in your face. I’d go ahead and put the info up as soon as you are done registering. Sometimes guests will catch sales and have coupons or whatever and will buy gifts early.

We put it on ours. Its convenient and easy. When I’ve been an invited guest I’ve always appreciated when the couple included this info on their website.

We put it on our registry! I think the only place it’s in poor form to list it is on the wedding invitation (not shower invite, actually wedding invite). So go ahead and put it up on website! I agree with PP it does make it convienent and easy to find 🙂

We went ahead and put it all on there. Your guests may not check the site more than once or twice before thewedding so I think it should all be there at one time.

Yes we did, but only because most of our guests are from out of town and I figure they will all be going to the wedding website to look at travel info.

We put all of our information on our website. We had a registry tab on our page that had direct links to the stores we registered at (amazon, target, the container store). My most popular registry by far has been amazon.

@housebee: Really? I was thinking about doing that registry but wasn’t sure.
Did you do a full registry and post it before you sent your STD’s?

We included it (well, actually the lack of it and an explanation of why) on our FAQ page.
