How do I let people know where I am registerd at? I have seen some people include it in the invitations, but I thought was against “the rules.” I don’t have a problem including maybe a seperate card in the invite…. I just am now sure what to do. We do not have a wedding website, and most of our family does not usually access a computer. Any advice would be greatly appriceated!!!!

@eurotripsummer: I wouldn’t include it anywhere in the invite, but you can include a website and list it on there. My bridesmaids also listed it on my shower invitations, which I think is totally fine. Just make sure your mom and bridesmaids know because people tend to ask them.
**edit – sorry, I obviously read too quickly! IF computers/website isn’t an option for you, I’d just rely on word-of-mouth. If people want to know, they’ll ask.

Usually through word of mouth. If they want to know where they’ll ask you or your family.

@eurotripsummer: Don’t put it on the invite. Just spread via word of mouth.

People will ask or just give you cash. Especially if they’re not in to internet shopping. Lugging huge boxes to a wedding is sort of passe these days.

Here is my reply to when this was asked a few days ago. We, too, will have guests who won’t have computer-access.
I will be including our registry information within our invitation. While it’s frowned upon here, every invitation I’ve ever received has included registry information. I, personally, have concluded it depends upon where you’re from. I started a topic about it: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/where-to-put-our-registry-information
A majority of who we’re inviting does not have the internet and are older (so ordering online or going to a wedding website would not reach many of our guests). Plus, going under the assumption that people will ask around is expecting too much of people. For example, FI’s family doesn’t communicate with each other and goes months without talking to each other, even when they need information. It’s so frustrating. The theory of asking the groom and brides’ mother won’t work for us, since FI’s Mom passed away a year ago and my Mom is disabled and can’t speak and hear well, and my Dad is disabled as well and not good at remembering information. And I think it’d be tackier on our part if Fiance or I were to mention our registeries when talking with our invitees.
We plan on including a line that gifts are not required, but if one is so inclined to get us a gift, here’s where we’re registered.
In the end, do what’s best for you. That’s my theory.

I think every single invitation I’ve received has had the registry information included, usually on a separate business card sized insert. I was surprised to find out that it was considered rude.
I totally would have included it with the invitation except, for real, we weren’t even registered before the invites went out.

We have it listed on our wedding website. I believe there was also an insert added to my shower invites…I would NOT put it on the actual wedding invitation though.
