“If you’re looking for registry info, you can find it on our website. Technically, it is poor etiquette to put registry info on the invitation because it can give the impression we are looking for gifts, when we’re really not! thanks for your concern”

Bah. Her inquiry should NOT make you feel bad.

Agree, people do things differently so if she’s just asking then it’s perfectly fine you did it another way.  We didn’t even have a registry and my sisters had a lot of people asking where we were registered but no one asked us why wouldn’t we have included the info with the invitations.

Don’t even worry about questions like that!  You did the right thing by not including the info.  Word of mouth, the wedding website and the shower invitations are the only way guests are supposed to find out about the registry.  You will start to get a lot of questions, some dumb or annoying, others totally valid and helpful.  Its all part of the… fun!

We didn’t put ours in the invite and no one had problems figuring out that it was on the website.  In some locations, it is still pretty common to put registry info in the invites.  People will figure it out, but make sure that your parents and BMs know the information in case someone asks them.

Our invites haven’t gone out yet but I have people asking me why I’m not going to put our registry info on the invites and I keep saying, “Get a copy of Emily Post and you’ll understand.” lol  I don’t really say that but it’s what I’m thinking.  I politely say, “Because I don’t feel it is necessary and people can find out through word of mouth.” lol

If people are talking to your Future Mother-In-Law, that’s great because she can pass along the info. They are doing the correct thing by asking if they want to know about a registry, and she should do the right thing by letting them know your wishes. Where’s the problem? 🙂
