    I’m in the same boat- won’t be having a shower, either. I don’t even have any family members around to spread it via word of mouth! My plan is to casually mention where we’re registered if people ask…but, I’m not expecting too much, as we will have a destination wedding. I’ve had a few people suggest I just put registry information in with my invites, but I can’t bring myself to make that faux pas!

    All they have to do is Google your names. There was no need to tell people where we were registered. Unless you’re registered with some obscure stores that aren’t easily accessible online, it’s quite easy for people to find the info. Though, I think some asked my mom.

    It’s pretty much a given that most couples are typically registered somewhere for their wedding. Between the options of

    • a quick Google search
    • a wedding website
    • the bridal shower invitations
    • word of mouth

    there are plenty of ways for guests to learn of where someone is registered.

    Word of mouth or website.

    Wedding website, we state on the page that it’s for the convenience of guests, not because we are expectng gifts!  We have two houses full of house-y and kitchen-y stuff so will be difficult to shop for–and judging by a couple of our engagement gifts, I would NOT go without a registry!

    In fact, we’re hard-pressed to come up with ideas.  This morning we’re all excited because we thought of a bench vise–something we both want, don’t have, and can register with Sears.

    Only by word of mouth.  It worked great.

    I only wanted by word of mouth, but Fiance was INSISTANT we put it on our website!

    Definitely NOT in the invites! If I got an invite with registry information, I would assume that my presence is contingent on my bringing a gift, and although a gift is expected, that’s just rude.
