Tell close family and friends where you are registered.  The word will get around.  Also … register at “obvious” places (such as Target, Beds Bath and Beyond, etc…), if you can.  I always check these stores to find registries if the couple hasn’t specifically told me where they were registered.

People will figure it out. Registry information isn’t typically included on invites

I honestly don’t know what current ettiquette says but I’ve seen on WB that it’s not cool to put registry info with the wedding invites.  That it’s best left for shower invites. 

They are stamped and sealed.  I would say let them go and have your closest family and friends try to “leak” the word about your registries.  Just my opinion.

I agree.  You’re not supposed to put registry’s in your wedding invitations (though guests don’t see the bad ettiquette, they actually appreciate it!)  But, word of mouth is the best way to go.  If most know about the wedding website, then keep the info on there and allow word of mouth to do its thing.

If most people don’t know about the website, get the word out and when guests question registry, that’ll be the first place they look! 

I would mail it out and consider it done!

Thank goodness for that mistake! Invitations shouldn’t include registry information. It is considered "poor etiquette".

I think you should be all set with the website info having been on the Save-The-Date Cards. And there’s always word of mouth.

Just put the registry infor on your website and then also on your shower invite

In some regions, people are in the habit of putting registry information in invitations. Most etiquette books and guides will tell you however, it’s bad form to do so–it suggests that attendance is conditional upon gifting. So I think it’s a blessing that you sent them off without. 

Trust me, even if the registries weren’t mentioned anywhere, including your website, people will never assume that you don’t want a gift. They would call your parents, your Maid/Matron of Honor, you directly, for that information–some still might, even though most people will just consult your website these days. I wouldn’t worry about it.

People will either ask you or buy whatever they want to 🙂  You can officially not worry about it!

Just put the registry info on the website and on shower invites. Word of mouth (FMIL and mom are great for this!) works wonders. Also, remember $$/checks is common as a gift.
