you can put it on your website and have your moms and bridal party spread it by word of mouth.

The classy way (IMO) is through word of mouth (tell your mom, BMs etc where you are registered) and that should work.

If you have a wedding website you can also list your registry there.

I’m not a fan of putting the inserts you get from some stores into invites or putting anything on an invitation because it seems really REALLY gift grabby, but there are lots who disagree.

🙂  Fair warning- you will get a lot of responses on this topic because it tends to split the ‘hive.

The absolute least-tacky etiquette-guru approved way? Say nothing and leave it up to word of mouth. People will never assume you don’t want a gift or your not registered. In the absence of information, they will call your parents, you, or your friends to get the information. 

The second least-tacky way to do it is to put the registries on your website. You can then list the website address on your Save-The-Date Cards and/or invitation. This is more and more common and generally accepted.

@ArwenBride: My friend put stickers on the back of her, “Save the Date” magnets…it didnt bother ME that she did that.  People spend a LOT of $ on their weddings, why would ANYONE even consider not coming with a gift (so it doesnt seem tacky to me)? M

y Bridal etiquette book agrees with these ladies.  Put it on your website, or by word of mouth.  I just asked asked my friends themselves where they were registered at. ;))

We put ours on our website. Since we have lived away from home for a decade and didn’t have a bridal party, “word of mouth” would not have worked (none of our friends/his family ever chat with my mom).

Apparently the etiquette gods believe in the power of telepathy for registry information ;-). I think it’s so silly that you aren’t supposed to put the info in the invites! Our compromise on that was the website.

I have made sure my mom knows and is telling people when they ask. I also have it listed on our website and even though I only sent out like 10 save the dates I’ve tried to spread the word about our website.

Also it is on the shower invitation that I will be having in a few weeks with about 40 women so that is a good chunk of people that now know.

Agree with previous posters. All of my guests are receiving Save the Dates with our wedding website URL where registry information is listed. Once I figure out where I’m registering besides Amazon, I’ll make sure my mother knows so she can pass it along to anyone who asks.

If someone is throwing you a shower, it’s fine for them to put registry information on the shower invitation as well.
