I just saw this in my feed from an acquaintance:
The best wedding gift you could give us is your presence on our big day, but if you still feel the need to get us a gift, its not too late! Don’t forget about our honeymoon registry! Just a few clicks and you don’t even need to remember to bring that pesky gift with you to the wedding! 🙂
Ummmmm, are registry shout-outs on social media really a thing now?

@april13th: That would rub me the wrong way.

@april13th: they shouldn’t be, especially because I doubt everyone who would see it is invited to the wedding. Just awful.

That is in really poor taste of them…the fact that it’s a honeymoon registry makes it even worse, IMO.

Bad bad bad. I’ve never seen this before and I hope I never do. Ick

Oh no,no,no… not okay in my opinion.

Erm, poor taste for sure.

Rude in multiple ways. One, I assume that she has friends on fb that aren’t invited to the wedding that can see this. Two, don’t mention gifts. Three, ugh honeymoon fund.

Yuck, no thanks. What is it with the registry tackiness lately? A few weeks ago, FSIL emailed me a list of *preferred* registry items (items she wanted more than others i guess?). I was so annoyed, we purposely got her one that wasn’t on her list.
If it’s on your registry, isn’t it already preferred?

Yuck, not cool! I don;t post anything about my wedding since not everyone is invited

Yeah, I’d assume that not everybody that’s FB friends with her is invited to her wedding (although saying your presence is a gift allllllmost sounds like an invite!). I also don’t think registry info should be offered unless asked for.
@QueenOfSerendip: meh, we still had a bit of a hierarchy of things on the registry that were filler and things that we wre REALLY hoping would turn up. I actually had a few contact me asking which items we wanted the most, but I certainly never reached out unsolicited with the info.
