StL.Ashley:  for a bridal shower, yes it should include registry info or at least list the stores you registered at.

Personally, if i had received an invitation for a shower with no registry info i would conta t whoever is hosting it and find out!

Around here, they always have registry info on them. Did the hostess leave contact info on there? I would assume most people will contact her about gifts.

My shower invites did not have my registry information on them either. I only got one gift that wasn’t from my registry. I think it might have happened anyway since that relative lives in a very small town that has none of the stores I registered at and she’s not comfortable ordering online. I was a little worried too when I first saw that, but it all worked out just fine. Plus the gift that wasn’t on my registry was still very nice and useful (Bakeware set) plus included a family heirloom cookbook that belonged to FI’s late grandmother.

Yeah it should, hopefully people will ask. I would either ask or just look on some of the more common stores that have bridal registries to see if you have one.

Yes, my shower invite had my registry information on it. If I received an invite without the information I would just Google your name and check the popular stores. Where are you registered? If you’re registered at the typical easy to find stores I wouldn’t worry about it.

Have her print out a small sheet of paper with your registry info and stick it in with the invites. I was MOH in a wedding and was hosting the bridal shower and the bride did NOT want the registry info on the cards, but wanted everyone to know where she was registered. I simple printed the information out and made inserts. Everyone got the message.

birchwood29:  +1 to adding a small card/sheet of paper along with the invitations. I did this when I planned my sister’s shower because I didn’t have enough room on the invitations. Also, Macy’s (and similar stores) usually give you those small cards when you register – you could probably stop by the closest one and ask for a bunch!

ETA: Etiquette says that MOB and bridesmaids should answer questions regarding where the bride is registered. I’m sure people will ask if they don’t know!

My shower invitations didn’t have registry information on them and so far it hasn’t seemed to be an issue. The ladies that are coming to my shower are all super close with either me or my mom (or both of us), so we’ve gotten a lot of people asking where I’m registered. My shower is this weekend, so I guess I’ll find out if it was a problem haha!

Side note – I don’t think you sound like a brat at all, but I get how you feel. I always feel like a brat anwering the question of “Where are you registered?” Even though they’re asking, I just feel like telling them sounds like I want gifts lol
