You aren’t supposed to put it on your invitation.  It can go on your shower invite, or as a separate card in your shower invite.  but technnically its supposed to be word of mouth, or on your website if you have one.

I wouldn’t include it with the invitation.  People can find this out through word of mouth or if they just check popular registries.

We’ll put website info with the directions/accommodations insert in the invites.  Registry info will be on the website.

Listing your registry info is dictated by etiquette. Are you following etiquette? Then the registry information cannot be on any invitation nor including as separate insert cards. As many of the above readers posted, technically this is suppossed to be word of mouth.

We listed our website (freebie through BB&B) on our hotel insert. Logging onto the website one was able to figure it out from there…

Hmm, I think that I will put mine on one of my inserts. I know that logging into my website will lead people where they need to go – but some people don’t have or know how to use it.

Plus I’m making pocket fold invites, so I’ll have more then enough space to stick it somewhere with out it being overly noticable, but still there to be found. And it’s not overly formal invite or wedding so I think I can get away with it.

I think you know, things change, times change and each wedding and set of guests is different. Do you think that anyone will be offended if you have it on there because it;s not following etiquette – sounds like for your situation they would prefer it be on there to make things eaiser.

I’ve received a wedding invitation with those small cards  (about 2"x2") from C&B and Macy’s and I thought that was the worst thing I could say about the invitation.  Granted, we are young and everyone our age knows about wedding channel or the knot to find people’s registries, but it stuck out and was just like screaming "oh and here’s what we want!"

Etiquette wise, it is not appropriate to include your registry information in your wedding invitation. It sends a message to your guests that you are placing much importance on your gifts regardless of whether they come or not.

If you really want to you can include a wedding website and include your registry information there. Otherwise, usually people will ask you or you can do word of mouth.
