How do we let guest know where to go for our registry if its not part of the invitation. Also, several of the people attending do not know how to use online websites….
Where do I put info to let people know about our registry, i’m confused.

You’re right. It’s tricky. Technically, including registry info on invites is against etiquette. Some people choose to include it anyway. Others simply include it on their wedding websites and encourage word-of-mouth.

Keep the link on your website and for the non-web-savvy folks, just tell your parents/relatives/bridal party to relay the info. If they don’t know how to get to the website, they’ll ask around.

don’t put it on the invites!!!
include the link to your website in your invitation suite, and put a link to your registries on your website. guests that aren’t computer-savvy will have to rely on word of mouth. typically, bms and mothers relay the registry info to other guests.

You could ask your parents to try to spread the word. Dont put the registry on your invitations. Honestly put it on your website and the people who arent tech savvy will probably end up gifting you cash or something random anyways. Most of the older guests we had either gave us a check or bought off registry and it would be something totally random and unreturnable – it happens, a lot!

You only provide registry information if asked for it. To adverstise your registry is in very poor taste.

@lisa105: Not really actually…nowadays people are putting their registry information on their wedding websites and I would consider this in bad taste at all!

We’re putting our registry info on our web site. That’s the most common way I’ve seen it done these days.
I would ask your bridal party/family members to put the word out there as well.
My question is…how do you tell guests about your web site? Do you put it on the STD or the invitation?

We have our registry info on our website, but we aren’t doing Save-The-Date Cards so we won’t have that to spread our website around. For my Out of Town friends I am emailing them the link to our website because it has information about hotel blocks and directions and such and for older guests I’m having my mom spread the word. We have an invitation appointment on Monday so if it would not cost too much extra I would like to include an extra insert with our wedding website.
@rollercoaster: if you are doing Save-The-Date Cards I would just include your website on that.

@LRin2011 – thanks for the info. So if we put http://www.rollercoaster.comextre on the bottom of the STD as an extra line, that would be acceptable etiquette?

It can be pretty much anything you want. We’re using our web site to relay travel information – hotels where blocks of rooms are reserved, suggested airport and rental car companies, also suggested tourist attractions/activities. We’re also going to include photos of us as a couple and little stories about our relationship.
My family lives about 3000 miles away, so a web site is an easy way to relay travel and event logistics.

Pretty much every invitation I’ve gotten has had a separate slip of paper that says where the couple is registered. We were planning on doing this….it may be tacky, but I guess I’d rather them know where to go instead of guessing!

I guess I will figure it out… THANKS !!
