    “Check out our wedding website at  URL” and put registries there. Yes, it is rude.

    @Jacquelinesc84:  it depends on your circle. I’d ask older family members if they expect to see a registry card in the invite. Most bees are going to tell you it’s the rudest thing ever. Personally, I have never once received an invitation that DIDN’T have a registry card.

    @Jacquelinesc84:  I thnk it is generally considered rude, but if it flies in your circle go for it. I think on a website it is generally more accepted.

    Yes [/thread]

    We directed them to the website to RSVP, and the registry was on the site. Worded like a Charm.

    Everyone will say yes, but as a wedding invitee, I personally wouldn’t care. I would assume that the couple was trying to be practical, not that they were tasteless.

    But if you have a wedding website, put it there instead.

    I don’t see any problem with it. I actually find it more annoying when people don’t include details and I have to go searching for them. I would never attend a wedding without giving a gift, so the easier the bride and groom can make it for me to buy them something they actually want, the better!

    It’s not unusual I don’t think in the UK 🙂 I wouldn’t put it on the main invite but include a slip in the pack. We do not seem to object as much as bees in America 🙂 x

    I’ve never received a wedding invitation with it. Culturally, the bride gets gifts during the bridal shower and cash for the wedding. So, the bridal shower invite always has this little card in it that says “registered at…” but the wedding will not. Honestly, I don’t see a huge problem including that card in your wedding invites.

    To me I wouldnt find it rude.  But it would probably crowd the invite a bit.  Personally, I prefer invites to be well-spaced.  I think its crisper.  If you registered at several places then its additional lines.  I have never received an invite with it directly on the invite.  They all had inserts.

    As a guest to a wedding I’d prefer the invites to come with a registry notice added in the envelope. Don’t want to guess or call around to people trying to figure out where you’re registered. I also probably wouldn’t visit your wedding website (just being honest) to look and see if a registry is there. I like having all the info I need right in front of me at the same time. Could be my mild laziness lol
