Selecting each item that you want to go on your wedding registry can be one of the highlights of your wedding adventure. The only better feeling, really, is when these gifts start showing up at your doorstep, in your hands at your shower or your wedding day. But when your wedding adventure begins, you may find yourself wondering the best way to tell your friends and family where you're registered. We've got you covered with this list of six appropriate ways to share your wedding registry with guests.
Get It Over Right Away
When you send out your save the dates, if you have already gone ahead and registered, you can make a mention of that then. It may be seen as too early or even taboo, but the truth is, it's just informative for guests who are planning to come to your wedding and want a head start on picking out the perfect gift for you.
Spread the Word Digitally
One of the biggest perks of having a wedding website, that you can make in just a couple of clicks for free, is that you can list all of your registry info there. You can then share that website with guests via email or even social media, if you'd like.
Ask Your Friends and Family
Inform your friends and family early on about where you're registered and ask them to spread the word. That way, when people go to them wondering where you're registered, they can spit out that information super easily.
Add an Insert to Your Invitation
Instead of printing where you are registered directly on your invitation, which may be seen as traditionally tacky, you can include an extra insert with extra wedding info, including the places you're registered.
Give out a first hint of where you're registered by including that on your bridal shower invitation. If someone else is taking the reins and planning this for you, you can have them include a sentence or two on the invitation or e-vite letting the guests know where they can find your registry.
Do It Yourself
Be the person who hands over that information yourself. Be open about it and let your friends, family, and even coworkers know about some of the cool items you decided to include on your registry.
