A friend of mine is getting married this Summer and is registered at several local and national stores. She nixed the idea of a wedding website (too cheesy) and felt it was tacky to advertise where she was registered with her invitation, so she's notifying guests of her registries only if they inquire. Her friends have also provided registry information for those who are attending her bridal shower.

I'm not married, but this situation got me thinking about the best way to spread the word about a wedding registry. How do you think guests should be notified?
