i just wanted to let everyone know that if you create a registry with Macy’s your information will be shared with wedding channel.com and a wedding website will automatically be created with your name and wedding information on it. You may be wondering why I am sharing this with you. If you google your name, one of the first hits will probably be this wedding website. This may not seem like a big deal to some of you. However, if you work in a high profile job or are even job hunting, your name WILL be googled. I honestly don’t want my clients to know private details about my wedding. So I just thought I would share. To remove this link you have to call Macy’s and tell them to disable the Internet setting on your registry.

Yep– while I love this feature for other’s wedding, I am happy I have enough web content at work that it doesn’t show up unless you google my name with my FI’s name.

Every place does this (C&B and BBB for sure). I told weddingchannel to remove ours & they did.

@Soon_To_Be_Mrs_T: I hear a lot of people talking about googling your name an dbeing shocked by what shows up. I google my NAME and I don’t even show up. and it’s not like I have a common name either. if I google my user iD sure, but a future employer (or current) doesn’t know my user id for things 🙂

Fiance and I have our Macy’s registry set to private and you can’t see it when you google either of our names. Our BBB registry is visible though because there wasn’t an option to make it private.

I WISH I had known this sooner. We had a huge family war because some people found out I was engaged before I told anyone by Googling me.
