Q: We set up a honeymoon registry at a travel agency. What's a tactful way to convey this news to our wedding guests?

A: First, have faith—your friends will make it a point to find out where you're registered. Word-of-mouth (usually spread by your bridal party and close family) is still the preferred way of alerting guests to your wish list. But whatever you do, don't mail out printed registry cards or include them with your wedding invitation—it's about as well-mannered as slapping the words "gifts required" on a birthday invite.
