I live in a city, such that anything shipped to our door and left on the doorstep will be gone in short order. We set up our registry with FI's parents address, so anything shipped through the registry, we won't have to worry about.
However, I'm concerned with any gifts that aren't shipped through the registry. My plan is to have the return address on the invites coming back to us, not either of our parents' homes. My question, though, is this: if people decide to mail a gift without going through the registry, are they likely to default to the invite return address? Or are they likely to ask someone where to mail to?
What's the best way (obviously, nothing about gifts on the invites) to communicate that nothing beyond a card should be sent to our home address?
Oh that's a good one. A POBox is probably your best bet. Otherwise maybe talk to your parents and see if they would be alright with intercepting the wedding mail and having the return addresses be to their house.
In the past I have usually sent gifts to the return address on the invitation received.

Commercial offers and spamming the board. If I want to read a bunch of ads, I'll go to Craigslist.
