Help me out girls- I registered for my bridal shower but now want to pull it off because honestly, what we really need is money. we’ve lived on our own long enough to have the basic living necessities and are now trying to save for a house… We thought we would just register for something like HONEYMOON.COM which is a site that people can pay for things on your honeymoon. That would help out greatly.
My question is, how do I incorporate that into my invite without being tacky? Do I add a small card inside the invite, or leave it alone, wait for people to ask and explain what we really need is help with our honeymoon or saving for a house?
Im worried if I dont include any registry it will make people get us things we may not need. What should I do? What is the etiquette for this? Help!

Etiqutte rules state that you absolutely do not include your registry information in the wedding invite. Major faux pas.

maybe you can add your registry information on your wedding website 😉 That’s what I’m doing 🙂

You definitely should not put registry information on your invitation. There is really no situation where this is appropriate, as it implies that gifts are expected. Bridal registry information is passed by word of mouth. People will want to know and they will ask, so make sure that the people hosting your bridal shower know what to reply when people inquire.

I put mine on my website. But what you should never do – is put it on the RSVP card. I receicved an invite last week that actually had the registry info on the RSVP card… um, I mail that back to you… that doesn’t even make sense!

We just had an enclosure card with our wedding website directing guest to view it for more registry, directions and additional information and that way we are able to put anything on there 🙂 Perhaps that’s an idea.

ok, how you guys have time for a wedding WEBSITE, along with work and wedding planning is beyond me! But, I gotta go with the flow right ?
Where do I set up this free site? What is the best one to use? I like the idea of it because then I dont have to include a map in the invite either…

Although I had never heard of the rule to not put registry info on the invite, to me it does make sense; HOWEVER, where I’m from, every invite I’ve ever received always had it on the invite or a separate card so it was available. Do what you think your guests will find appropriate is my advice. Personally, I will be including it on my wedding website since I have extended family I am inviting but don’t necessarily talk to a whole heck of a lot–the whole family list drama is my issue right now!

tell people that like to talk and know your guestlist to spread the word, but don’t put it on your invite!

Kcolbyd, you can get a free site just about anywhere – theknot.com, brides.com, getting married.com, even JC penny will give you a free wedding site.
I vote def do not put it on your invite.

Put in on your wedding website and then you can include a card with your wedding website info in your invite. Also, get family members (like moms) to spread the word about registries on both sides!

Go to a site like mywedding.com to make your wedding website. It will not take that long to set up at all, and they have great templates. That’s where my registry information is.

I second the putting it on the website. It doesn’t take long to set up the website. Just pick a place that has the free website (I did mywedding.com since they had a lot of choices for templates.) And then add only the info you feel you need on there. Mine has a home page, with general info on the wedding, an accomodations page with info on our room block, and a registry page with info on our registries. It might take you an hour to set it up, and then you can go back and edit it as you need to.
