@iarebridezilla:  I think is just as bad as the wedding one, possibly worse since she flat out acknowledges it’s questionable to share the link and does it anyways. Kind of like saying “no offense, but…” followed by an insult.

*That being said*, I wouldn’t have a reaction at all. I’d keep right on scrollin’.

@iarebridezilla:  I think that’s totally fine. She did it respectively IMO.

Ack, very not cool. One should never post where they are registered bridal or babyshower wise on FB.  Sorry thats just reeks tasteless to me.

No sorry that is super tacky, too. It’s not hard to google people’s names and find a registry.  If people are asking, tell them every time someone asks. No need to announce it to people who haven’t asked.

Prefacing something with I’m being gauche, doesn’t make it more acceptable.

Yeah no… I don’t care if it was Kate Middleton posting this on FB.  Tell when asked… (That said I don’t care about inserts in invites, it helps those too lazy to google! lol)

@iarebridezilla:  wait, is this a registry for a baby shower or is the baby already born? I’ll start off by saying if the baby is not yet born and they are posting the name that is BAD MOJO and you shouldn’t participate. I’m not afraid to preach my superstitions on that one. If the baby is already born and people have been asking about the registry I guess it’s OK. Baby items are needed more than wedding items, y’know? Diapers vs. monogrammed dish towels, there’s no comparison.

Ugh. How much effort does it take to say “We are registered at ______,” when someone asks and wants to give you a gift?

I think it’s tacky.

A girl who was once in my sorority did something similar recently. She CREATED AN EVENT on Facebook and invited over 700 people. She basically said since she can’t be arsed to make it to this neck of the woods, she was having a virtual baby shower, and here’s where she was registered. I was invited, even though I haven’t seen this girl in six years. I was appalled. You are not entitled to gifts from essentially strangers just because their reproductive systems function as intended.

I said nothing at the time, but I do hope someone signed her up for that poop-by-mail service.

@iarebridezilla:  Honestly, I think it’s just as bad as the wedding one. Which is to say, I think it’s rude but it wouldn’t have any effect on my day. If people have asked you where you’re registered, tell them. I’m pretty sure FB didn’t collectively ask, so you don’t need to make a general announcement.

@iarebridezilla:  LOL Oh I do see why you’d feel it was different because it’s “for the baby”. But… come on…. the baby is gonna get what the baby needs. The registry is so the parents don’t have to buy it themselves!
