We sent the invitations out about two weeks ago. Due to the printers and the mix up on the location, we were late getting them out so just rushed and only sent the invitation. I wanted to include an accomodation card with directions since our venue will be tucked away in a remote location.
My mom was saying today that we should make a card that has the accomodation information, directions and where we are registered and mail them out within the week. I can make them up quickly and print them, I just don’t know the ettiquite behind this. Would this be rude? We have a wedding website but only a few people have actually gone on there. Most people just facebook, text or call us and a lot have not responded yet (of course it’s only been two weeks so I’m not expecting the responses until that point) and, being in the hurry that we were in we said to RSVP by phone or email. That’ll be fun trying to keep track.
So should we send this out or should we just tell the people who ask?

I totally agreed with th supplement until you said registry info! Don’t put the registry info anywhere on the invite or supplement. People will know to ask your family or wedding party!

@BrandNewBride: That’s what I was thinking, that’s why I wanted to ask. My mom keeps saying we should but I don’t think that’s appropriate. And quite honestly, I don’t care what we get or if anything at all. That’s why I haven’t registered yet. My mom pulled up a bunch of sites today to register and I added a couple $20 items but didn’t do anything really. They could give me something I had absolutely no use for and I’d be happy, or they could get me nothing at all and I’d be happy.
A few people have asked about the registry. I just don’t even feel comfortable having a registry. It just seems a bit… Greedy to me. But my mom insists on it and on including it on the cards. Maybe I’ll put “for any questions please call 555-5555” and put her number so she can tell them if they wonder?

@kris325: Oh my goodness, I think I love you! I’m the EXACT same way! My FI registered, becuase I’m just not comfortable with the idea of telling people “Hey, you should get me that!”
I’m so happy someone else feels the way I do!
