I’m thinking of having a separate card in the invitation that tells people to go to the website so that they can see the hotel block, get directions, see registry info, etc. But I don’t want to mention gifts anywhere in the invitation, I thought it was tacky… or am I supposed to? What do you think I should do? Has anyone else ever done this? The website was on the STD (and it has 600+ views at this point!) but several people have asked me to remind them of the URL, so I worry that some might throw away the STD when they get the invitation and then need it from me again. Thoughts?

@MrsPeachMartini: I did this. I figured it was a good way to sneakily remind people where to find the registry (so they didn’t have to ask) without ever using the word “registry” or “gift”. I just included a printed card that said “information about all wedding-related activities like the rehearsal dinner and next-day brunch can be found on our website at http://www.XXXXXXXX.com“
After all, not everyone is as neurotic as me when it comes to keeping Save the Dates!

I put mine on the Directions + Additional Information card. It’s a little buried at the bottom, but definitely doesn’t scream out gifts as we’ve had a few people (usually the less tech-y) ask our families where we are registered.

I included an insert card with my invites but it only referenced our website address in case guests needed more details, and we left it at that. I read on other threads that it is tacky to mention registry info and not considered proper etiquette so I went with that direction to err on the side of caution, and did not mention anything about our registry. It’s worked out fine, I only had 2 guests ask about our registry everyone else seems to have figured it out, last I checked almost all of our registered items have been fulfilled.
So I think it would be fine to include an insert card just referencing your website as a reminder that guests can go there if they want more info or include your website address on your Details/Additional Info card in your invitation suite.

I would reference it in the invite

I would not reference gifts in the invitation. I think referencing the website is fine. We are referencing it on one of our inserts. We have:
1. Main invitation for ceremony
2. Reception card information
3. RSVP card
4. Recommended accommodations/directions, and then at the bottom we’re putting something like “For more wedding details, please visit our website at _________”
