    Yes, it would be bad to include the registry information in your wedding invitation.  If people want to know where you’re registered, they will ask (either you or your parents) or there are ways to search online for registries.

    It depends on your family. I recently received a shower invite with 3 listed, and their wedding invite had 5 listed. I personally thought it was bad form, but the bride grew up in a different state than me, so I’m assuming it’s considered appropriate in her circle. My family would have balked & we only give out our website (which has our registries listed). Do what makes you feel comfy.

    Personally I don’t think registry information should ever be listed on the wedding invite. Do you have a wedding website you could put details on? If not, I’d say word of mouth is the best way to go.

    It really depends on your friends and family, I’d go if it’s ok in your circle include it on a seperate info card and not on the actual invite.

    It’s rude to include the registry info in the wedding invite. It should be spread by word of mouth only since not everyone attending will be invited to the shower or able to attend that event. Just because some people don’t find it rude doesn’t negate the fact that it really is inappropriate.

    There should be no reference to gifts in the invitation in any capacity.  People who ask can be directed to the registry.
