How do you let guests know where you’ve registered at? One of the places I’m looking to register offers small, business-like cards announcing our registry.. Is it polite to put these in the invitations? I’m also planning to put a link to our registry on our wedding website.

I’ve seen it included in with the invitation.

A lot of people will say that it’s rude to include those in the invitation and that you should only do it by word of mouth or your wedding website. But in my family that would never work out because 1) half don’t know how to use the internet 2) you can never really rely on word of mouth and 3)my family told how easy it was to just bring that card in to see the registry. So I’m all for sticking the little card in with the invitation I think it makes it a lot easier for everyone.

I’d stick to adding the information onto your wedding website and giving the cards to whomever is hosting your bridal shower to include in those invitations 🙂

We had a bridal shower with invitations sent out, so my Mother-In-Law sent the registry info with the bridal shower card. Most of the females invited to the wedding were also invited to the shower, so they got the info. The rest of it was word of mouth or wedding website. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with slipping the card in the invite though. Most people find it convenient rather than rude.

Isn’t this something the bride doesnt need to worry about to begin with? When I register I will give whatever card or info for my registry to the BM’s and let them decide. I know some people who will complain about getting the card and some people who will compain about not knowing where the couple is registered.
I would complain about not having the card or registry info, haha. I dont want to make a bunch of calls esp if Im not super close to the B&G or its not family, to find out where they are registered. People need to stop thinking “What will offend?” on this matter and think “what will make it easier for the guests?” Just my opinion.

I think this is a bit of a generation thing. Traditionally, registry information is not included in wedding invitations, but can be included in shower invites. I’m in my late 30s and was raised in a very “proper” kind of social circe, and so I’ll admit I’m a little bothered by registry info being sent with the invites. However, it seems that most of the younger bees are fine with it, and I can certainly see the point about it being easy and efficent.
If you have a large enough guest list that word of mouth won’t work for the registry, I wonder if you could put the cards in the younger guests invitations, but maybe not put them in some of the older, more tradtional guests?
I even felt weird putting registry info on our website, but finally did. Our guest list is small, and most people are travelling to our wedding and so I don’t expect gifts from them anyway.
