So I would like everyones honest oppinion. I got a wedding invitation in the mail the other day that annoyed me a bit. It had an insert that said and I quote ” please visit this store or website when you buy us a gift”. It had the store name where they are registered, the website and registry number. I already knew where they are registered from the bridal shower. Meanwhile this is the same person that said they hoped none of those inserts would be in my shower invite and how tacky they are. Her words not mine. And yes I do realize that registry info in a shower invite is completely appropriate. Oh and her website is on the invite as well. So anyone who didn’t already know could have found out. Assuming they are somewhat computer savvy. I didn’t put registry info in my wedding invite. Nor, would I make an insert that said WHEN you buy us a gift. So what do you think, tacky or not tacky?

this person would get a punch bowl with a nice note “sorry, didn’t know where you were registered”

While registry info etiquette is kind of all over the place nowadays, I think it’s pretty bs that she told you you shouldn’t have any of that info in your own invites, and then put them in hers…

Beyond tacky !!
Double-dose of tacky when you consider she pointed out the Rule of Etiquette to you to begin with.
Lol, it is RUDE to do anything intentionally in retaliation… but I’d sure be wishing I could come up with some really great tacky gift to give her to make a statement (most definitely not something from “the Store”, or “the Registry List”)

Although i don’t think it’s tacky to put a registry card in your invite itself, i think she could have worded it differently.

Not exactly in best taste, but some people just don’t realize it may turn others off.

I probably wouldn’t care. I probably would of been like “OH, cool now I can get a gift they want.” But, that is just me, I don’t know all the traditions and etiquette of weddings and such. I just sorta go with it.

I think the issue isn’t that it was in there (around here it would be strange not to) but the way it was worded and that it sounds like this person was already judging you for putting this same information in a shower invite, where MOST people exspect it.

@chasesgirl: I agree. It doesn’t bother me when people include registry information with their invitations (we’re not doing it, but it doesn’t turn me off when others do) – but the wording here is tacky.
Also, yes, it’s fun to get gifts, but they shouldn’t be expected from guests, so to imply that there is a “when” guests buy them a gift is extra rude.

Tacky! I mean they already have the website on there, how much easier can it get?

Registry info is fine to me, but her wording choice is really bad. And it’s pretty ridiculous that she tells you not to do it, but then turns around and does it herself.

I’m generally okay if others put registry info in invites ( i wouldnt do it personally) but the thing that would get me about this invite is the “when buying us a gift” THat’s rather presumptous. Although, I’d like to give her the benefit of the doubt that she’s not rude, just a bit clueless!

@iheartsquishy: agreed. I like registry info in the invites, but her wording is really off-putting. It seems like much more of a demand vs. info if you want it.
