I think the general consensus is that it’s very rude to mention gifts on an invitation (or save the date).  Do you have a wedding website?  Put a link to that on your save the date / invite, and then have a registry page on the website.  🙂

I wouldn’t put the registry informatin on the save-the-date or on the invitations (etiquette).  The best way is to spread the information by word-of-mouth.  If you have a wedding website, you can add the registry URL to it and include the wedding website information on the guest information card of your invitation (this is what we did).  The actual invitation really should only include the date/time/place of the festivities.

We have a link to our honeyfund on our wedding website. You can also print small business sized cards from the honeyfund website which we are including in my bridal shower invites. 

Our wedding website is through http://www.weddingwindow.com

I put an additional card in with the invites (called additional information) with hotel accomidations as well as our wedding website. We also did a honeyfund website. I would recommend you break down the costs of your honeymoon so your guests know what they are contributing to (and can possibly help you out with a couple of things on the list). Check my website out http://www.honeyfund.com/wedding/jesseandyesenia

It should be spread through word of mouth.  Writing anything about gifts anywhere is considered rude. 

I actually looked at what you wrote, and the “in lieu of gifts” line sits very poorly with me.  I’d probably reword it to something like “Should you feel like contributing, Matt and I are saving up to go on our dream honeymoon to…”  In lieu of gifts sounds gift grabby/rude to me.

@cieritaqt:  Sure 🙂  Some other good advice in here as well.  Our website is set up at weddingwire.com – it’s quite user-friendly and they have a bunch of different templates, etc.

I put our wedding website on our save the dates, and in our wedding website, there was a registry link where all of our registry info, including honeyfund, was included.

I always thought the little cards go in the shower invites.  When I went to BB&B and Macy’s, that’s what they print for you.

So if they don’t supply cards for the invites, I guess you can just make them.

We had numerous requests from our invited guests if we had a registry so I was much more comfortable in the wording on our wedding website about the Honeyfund registry.  It was phrased that due to the many guest inquiries we had regarding our choosen registry, we decided to construct a Honeyfund one for our honeymoon.  We have had very positive feedback.  Over 70% of our guests are travelling from out of the country to our wedding and liked the idea of assigning their funds to an activty of their choose.

Have you seen the website http://www.wedsite.com?  It’s an interactive ‘wedsite’ that we used for our Save The Date.  We’ve updated it with hotel, venue and the Honeyfund info.  We have had amazing feedback for this unique wedding website as well.  It was easy to set up with the use of their templates.

I’ddo word of mouth, or a wedding website. Definitely not anywhere on the invitation or save the date! (Especially not on the Save the Date.)

By The Way, thank you for not using the word “donation.” That’s one of my pet peeves.

Love honeyfund!  We used it and got a great response!  PUt it on the website, and word of mouth, that is how we did it.  When someone asked what I preferred, I sent them to Honeyfund!

We set up a website through the Knot, since I had all my info already there, it was fairly easy and free.

cieritaqt :  so heres a question. What if some of our family doesn’t have the internet nor uses the internet. I dont think it would be disrespectful if we put on the card “do not need to buy us anything but we are registered at blah blah whatever the store is” thats just my own opioion.
