Is it in poor taste to include registry information in bridal shower invitation when it lists the registries according to priority? The top of the priority list was a honeymoon fund, followed by requests for money to help pay for flowers, then a registry from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. I know it is okay to include registry info in shower invitations…THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO ME, but SOMEONE I KNOW. Is it presumptious to ask for money so blantantly like that? I have never been a fan of honeymoon registries. This person is asking for $4500 for a honeymoon, money to cover her and her FI’s flowers, and having a traditional registry. I personally think it is WAY TOO MUCH and in poor taste. Am I in the wrong here Bees?

No, I agree. I think that’s pretty tacky.
How was it listed by priority, exactly? I’m just curious how it was worded on the invitation.

@windcriesamy: It wasn’t on the shower invite, but on a separate insert. The first thing listed was the honey fund for their honeymoon, then gift cards to help with their flowers, then their BBB registry. I thought it was incredibly tacky too.

I think if it’s listed in that order with no specific mention of priority, then its fine.
(Then in fine print:)
Ashley P is registered at
Rita’s Roses and Ribbons
Bed Bath and Beyond
But I have a feeling the invitation you got may not have been that simple.

Ew! I think it’s beyond tacky…
I can’t stand when couples ask for money for their honeymoon, but this is even worse because they’re asking for money for the honeymoon and flowers, AND gifts.
I think if people want a honeymoon or flowers then they should pay for it themselves. If they can’t afford an expensive honeymoon then they should just go for a road trip, and if they can’t afford flowers they should find some quality artificial ones. These are luxuries! If you’re planning a wedding you should take flowers into account when budgeting, and you should save up for a honeymoon.
If I were invited to such a wedding I would just take a gift.

The registries are usually on a separate insert with the invite.
However you list them, people will choose a gift according to what they can afford and their personal preference for gift giving. I’ve never been a fan of websites that take money – they take a cut so you don’t get the full benefit of the giver’s present. I don’t care one way or another, but rest assured many people won’t donate to the fund. They would prefer to give you cash instead.

@lovelylight99: they have to list them, since there’s more then one, if it didn’t mentoin please contrihute to honey moon fund or you could shop at such and such store, then I don’t see the big deal.
