I went the ‘don’t put registry info’ on the shower invites and boy I wish I had.
For my more formal shower (old family friends) they stuck with registry stuff.
For my friend shower (an awesome cocktail party!) everyone went more lingere stuff and random stuff that was well-intentioned but ended up in the trash – and while it was fun to open those things and I was grateful for the geasture – most of it went back (not my style AT ALL).
I would have much rather prefered kitchen stuff off my registry and LOVED the gifts I got off registry…. and had I included registry info on the invite, it would have been clear what I wanted.
Granted – I didn’t realize it at the time – but I really wish I did that. ESPECIALLY since we didn’t really get all that much registry things at the wedding (also likely because we didn’t put it on the invites – only a link to our website which NO ONE looked at). So, again – I almost wish I included it on the wedding invites (at least to DH’s side).
Edit to add: as a future shower guest – I know I’m going to be buying you a shower present, too! So, I might as well know what you really want – vs. guessing at something you’ll likely not really like (in other words – help me NOT waste money!) 🙂
