After reading people’s reactions to Miss Robin’s post about her registry, I was wondering what people’s thoughts are on mentioning a registry on our wedsite?
Personally, I like to know where a person’s registered. It makes it much easier to pick up a gift and I know they’ll like what we give. So I figured I would mention our registry on our wedding website but not on our invites.
I should note that we have a lot of guests who don’t know our families so the traditional way of passing it through the family doesn’t work for us. As well, knowing our guests, they’ll most likely be buying gifts the day before the wedding..lol. So this way they’ll have our registry info without having to phone the day before the wedding.

I think it’s perfectly fine to have it on a website that includes other information about you guys as a couple and the ceremony plans. I’m not personally opposed to informing people in direct ways like Ms. Robin did, either, but prevailing notions dictate that a website is probably the next-best-thing to word of mouth.

We’re posting our registry information on our website for the same reasons. It’s just so much easier, and as long as the tone of it isn’t "BUY US THINGS!" I think you’re fine.

We’re putting our registry on our website in a very subtle way. We have a FAQ section that lists our registry info under the question, "Where are you guys registered?" That way it’s not even on our front page, but guests still have access to the information.

We’re putting it on our website too. From what I’ve read it’s totally "etiquetly correct" to put it there.

It is okay to add your registry information to your website. Many of the wedding websites with templates even include a separate page where you can add photos and links to your various registries. In this time and age, many people like to be notified of your registries and it’s helpful for your guests. As long as it is not mentioned in your invitations or save the dates, it’s okay. It is also okay to add little blurbs like, "Bob and Sally love to cook and William-Sonoma is one of their favorite stores to pick up their kitchenware." It will also give insight to your guest of items that the couple may prefer.

As long as you do not list where you are registered on your wedding invitation (or an insert of such), you’re in good taste.
