I would just let word of mouth to get your address out there… if people want to mail the gifts around, they should be able to find out from your relatives or other friends, if not call you up.  I would not bother putting it up there!

Don’t put it there.  If someone doesn’t have your address, they’ll ask you or your parents.

We put it in the ‘Registry’ Tab on our website. We had our registrys listed and then ‘If you would rather send the couple well wishes by mail their address is (address).’

Why don’t you send out one of those “we moved” things to your friends and family. That way it isn’t wedding related, it is just to give them yor new address. My fiancé’s cousin did this and it was such a good idea bc ppl just stuck it in their address book

If you register, the companies will send the packages directly to you.  Otherwise, I would say let it spread by word of mouth.  I personally wouldn’t want my home address on a webpage.

What is the return address  on your invites or the address on your RSVP envelopes? Most folks will know to look on the return address if they want to mail something back to you.

don’t put your address on the net..even if its password protected. If people want to send a gift they will call you or ask your parents and friends for the address.

I agree with not putting a mailing address on the web, open to the public.

That said, if you were going to, I’d just put something like: “Please let us know if your mailing address has recently changed so we can ensure your invitation arrives. Our current mailing address is XYZ.”

Based on my web traffic after sending out Save the Dates, I’m not sure people use wedding websites as much as I thought they would. So make sure you have your address clearly as your return address on your invites/STDs and you’ll be fine.

Typically the gifts are sent to the return address on the wedding invitiations.

That’s how I’ve ALWAYS verified that I have the correct address when mailing a wedding gift.  I’d think it was odd to have to hunt it down online.  (And I hate that my address is online in the public tax records, there’s no way I’m voluntarily putting it on a webpage with my photo!)
