How to Share Your Registry with Your Guests

comments 2

One question we get all the time from newly engaged couples is how to share your registry with your friends and family in a tasteful way. You want to make sure it’s easily accessible to your guests without being too pushy, and most of all, you want your guests to feel comfortable and excited to celebrate this big moment.

Option 1: On Your Wedding Website

The most common way couples share their registries with their guests is by including a link on their wedding website. We definitely recommend this so that all of your wedding information is one place. However, we also suggest using one of the options below to complement your wedding website.

Option 2: With Your Invitation

A more recent trend is including information about your registry within your actual invitation. Since there are usually multiple cards in the envelope (for directions, RSVP, etc.), it feels natural to include information about your registry as well. Guests are looking for it, and that’s an easy place for them to see it!

Option 3: With Your Save-the-Date

If putting your registry information in your invitation feels too forward for you, we suggest including the information in your save-the-date. It’s a less formal card, and it’s helpful to provide your guests with a link to your registry as early as possible.

No matter which option you choose, the key to sharing your registry is being polite, gracious, and never making your guests feel like they are required to get a gift. If you stick to this etiquette, you can’t go wrong.

What are some other ways you suggest sharing your wedding registry with your guests?

      Hi Casey,

      Thanks for writing in with your question—no need for apologies, that’s why we’re here! I’m more than happy to provide some recommendations on what you should actually print on your invitations. I would keep it simple with something like this: “Find our registry at http://www.zola.com/registry/caseyandpartner.” Or, if you are short on space, you could just include the web link as you suggest (“www.zola.com/registry/caseyandpartner”). If you feel funny about including your registry info directly on your invitations, you could print it on the back of the invites, or on another card included in your invitation suite (for accommodations, directions, etc).

      Do you have a wedding website? If not, I highly recommend you set one up—Zola has tons of gorgeous website designs you can customize, and they’re totally free. Find them here: https://www.zola.com/wedding-planning/website. A website is an ideal place to store all of your registry information, and your Zola registry will automatically integrate with your Zola website so folks can shop your registry directly from your website. Pretty cool! Once you set up your wedding website, you can then include it on your invitation as an alternative to listing the registry link. So that would look something like this: “Visit our wedding website for more details: http://www.zola.com/wedding/caseyandpartner.”

      I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions that I can help out with, and good luck!
