It is against formal etiquette to put it on your invites.

Traditionally the information is spread by word of mouth but couples today are putting the information on their wedding websites.

They ask.  That’s the only way I’ve ever known to find out.  Your relatives will ask your family, your friends will ask other friends and others will ask you directly.  I’d tell your immediate family and your bridal party so they can all spread the word.  I’ve even just looked up the bride or grooms name in the most common stores, like Macy’s, Bed Bath Beyond or Target, and I’ve gotten lucky.  Also, if you have a shower, the people hosting it can include that info in the invitations as its not you asking for gifts, its them asking for gifts FOR you 🙂

Registry information can be included on shower invites, but not wedding invites. Usually guests who attend your wedding know where you are registered since they went to or were invited to your shower. If you didn’t have a wedding shower, I would try to get the information out there by word of mouth.

Have you gotten any registry cards? I have passed them out to my mom, FI’s mom, Fiance, and some of my friends and family to get the word out.

I am putting our website on the “accomodations” insert to our invites.  I just said “for more information please visit our wedding website at…”

I put some hotel info, local restaurants, etc on the site as well as the registry info.

Our registry information is included on our website, which our STDs direct people to.  We also might include our website on an extra business card sized insert with our invitations.  We’re also relying on word of mouth.

Definitely do not put it on your wedding invitations.

However, your shower hostesses can freely list it on your shower invites. Since the point of a shower is typically to “shower” the bride with gifts for her new home.

A wedding website is a popular way to get the word out, as well.
