@kimmo416:  So you’re not invited but still being asked to give a gift? Totally rude. I’d rethink friendship with someone like that. She shouldn’t have send that link at all, but if she really felt the need, only the wedding invitees should have received it.

Yes, that is tacky. I wouldn’t appreciate getting an email about a gift registry if I wasn’t invited to the wedding in the first place.

I try to avoid the use of the word “tacky” That is just plain rude- perhaps ignorant and unknowingly rude, but rude nevertheless.

I’m usually pretty relaxed when it comes to etiquette, but reading that made me cringe a little.

Ew. Not just the mass e-mail, but the wording implying that the recipients were actually invited, leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

You’re not invited but you can still buy us a gift? Super tacky.
