My mother and Maid/Matron of Honor are annoyed that I won’t put registry information on my website. I don’t feel right doing it, but they’re convinced no one will find out where we’re registered. 80% of our guests are from my fiance’s side, so word of mouth doesn’t work and Future Mother-In-Law isn’t all that interested in wedding planning. Who’s right, me or them?

I do see a problem that you aren’t putting it on the website and his parents won’t tell people where you are registered. I don’t see how people will know where you are registered that way, except maybe through shower invites!

But isn’t it rude to put it on the website? I thought it was supposed to be word of mouth only.

It’s rude to put it in your invitation. Websites are perfectly acceptable (and expected).

I’m kindof ‘anti rules’.. so I say.. put the info where YOU want to put it! Not what some thousand year old etiquitte rulebook says. 🙂

Most of the time I see the registry info included with the wedding invitation by way of an included card or small note.

I agree that putting the info on your website is ok. Especially since word of mouth isn’t going to work with your FI’s side of the family. I believe it’s against etiquette to put the info on your wedding invitation, not on your website. Guests usually rely on that for extra info that isn’t included in the invitation, so they will probably be expecting to find your registry info there.

That’s kind of what websites are for. It’s considered poor etiquette to include any registry information with your invites, but that’s why you have a website! Word of mouth is good, but utilize the resources you have to get the word out to your guests. They will appreciate it!
