Wedding registries can be a tricky thing. Not just in how you set them up, but also in how it’s presented to people. At times it seems easier to try and learn a dead language or calculate theoretical physics than navigate the ever-changing world of wedding etiquette. Here are some tips to help your wedding registry get to the right people without the old-fashioned,“Hey, just to let you know…”
- Conscript Aid
You need at least one person completely in your corner to pass this information along. One obvious choice is parents, but it helps to get direct aid form the maid of honor or best man. This actually isn’t tacky. These are the people that should be in your corner for the majority of your wedding plans. It might be a strange etiquette loophole, but it’s different when a friend lets people know what gifts you need/want versus you coming out and saying them.
- Post Details on Bridal Shower Invitations
In case you didn’t know, yes, it’s not considered to be in good taste to drop your registry info in your wedding invitations. It says, “Hey, it would be wonderful if you could make it to my wedding, oh and while you’re there.” If they know proper guest etiquette, then they’ll bring a gift.
The Bridal Shower, on the other hand is a great opportunity. It’s about gifts so it fits with the spirit of the event. Usually the MOH sends out these invitations so this meshes perfectly with number one.
- Link, Link, Link
It’s not uncommon for wedding couples to create their own online space. This might be its own domain, a WordPress or Facebook page (or group). Not only is this a great way to keep everyone in the know on all of the wedding details, it’s the perfect place to link or create tabs for your registry. This is all-encompassing, so there’s no foul. If anything, it actually gives your guests a useful guide that they can return to.
