What goes on save-the-date cards?
I had a friend say that I should put my registry website on my save-the-date cards. Is this usually done? If not, whould it be ok or should I just wait to put it on the invitations?

Most people consider it tacky to mention your gift registry on either the save-the-dates or the invitations because it screams "We expect gifts!" Unless you have a wedding website that has additional information on it along with your registry information, I wouldn't include it at all. Word of mouth (through family and the wedding party) is considered the best way to spread the news if you don't have a wedding website, but many guests will ask anyway because it is so common these days to have a registry...

As a wedding planner I dont suggest putting the registry with the save the date cards, people dont generally buy gifts that soon and by the time the wedding nears they may have misplaced or lost the registry card. The save the date card is more to let people know the date ahead of time incase they need to make arrangements such as flights or taking time off of a job. I would stick with putting registry cards with invitations.

It's Okay To Put Your Registry On The Save The Date Card It Will Allow More Time For People To Purchase You A Gift.

I agree with putting your wedding website on the save the dates. You can add any info you want your guests to know before hand as well as the registry. Im not sure i completely agree that it would tacky to add it to an invite or save the date, I think mosts guests would find it more convienient, I know I would. We all know that a wedding normally would suggest a wedding gift. But, thanks to etiquitte we have to find other ways to make that info available to guests. Another thing I did as well, with my invites I had a directions insert, and in smaller font than the directions I put where we were registered. Guest would keep the directions card and still have the registry info on there as well.

As a professional wedding planner, I would have to advise you to only put the date of the wedding and state more information to follow.

My recommendation is that you put date of the wedding and the location if that is decided; indicating invitation to follow. You can put your wedding website on - that is a good idea. Do not put your registry.

Your registry should be listed on your wedding website though.
