I’m wondering who broke tradition on this and what kind of responses you got for doing it. Not necessarily with registry information ON the invites, but also WITH the invites.
These threads always turn heated which I am trying to avoid. I’m merely seeking to hear the experiences of those who gave “tradition” and “etiquette” the middle finger on this subject 🙂

I did not for anything, including showers. People asked when/if they couldn’t figure it out on their own. I’m just personally not a fan of getting the info on invites I receive, so didn’t do it for ours.

I did. I had a 5 x 7 invite. I had an RSVP card and i had an “information” card which said, “for other salient information please visits http://www.xxxx.com” (Our wedding website.)

It’s a cultural/location issue at the moment.
In the UK everyone does. That’s not an exaggeration – I have been to at least 15 weddings in the last 10 years and every single invitation had registry information (or cash request or honeymoon donations or charitable donation request) in it. But I haven’t (yet) heard if a US bee doing it…

I had online RSVPs, and our registry was on our website if that counts. I didn’t mention anything about gifts/registries on our actual invite, I did have the website url though.

We had it on our wedding website but not the actual invite.
I did receive an invite shortly before our wedding that included the little printed cards from BB&B, and the black ink rubbed off all over their invitation. It was not cute.

We have registry info on our website, but not on our invites!

@ashleyr0512: It doesn’t matter if you have the wedding website info on there and the registry info on the website. That’s proper etiquette.
@Westwood: YIKES! There’s a good reason not to stuff random papers in with your invitations if I ever heard of one, lol.

@just_me: I agree! We are a mixed US (me) and UK (him) couple so we weren’t quite sure what to do. In the end, we decided that since we are getting married in the UK, we’d do it the UK way….So we put the information on our “important information” page, along with timings, directions, and nearby places to stay. After all, it’s a WEDDING registry…so I decided I wouldn’t lose sleep over it and anyone who wanted to be angry could be angry 🙂 Can’t please ’em all!

We also put them only on our wedding website, but not our invites.

We didn’t put registry info on our invitations, but we did put our wedding website on our save the date magnets (in little writing at the bottom.) This was more for guest information than anything else though; our wedding is pseudo-destination (we live in MA and my friends/family are here, but we’re getting married in NJ where FI is from, and where his family and a lot of his friends are) so we wanted to get hotel and location info up.

we put a small card in our invites and on our website. from what I heard no one minded because it saved them the hassle.

We’ll be including an extra info card with details.

I have to admit I’m always baffled when I see this question. I have to chalk it up to one of those geographical, cultural, social circle things.
I have literally NEVER been invited to a wedding that didn’t include an additional information card with registry info. Around here all the stores provide you with little cards to slip into your invitation suite just to make things simpler.
I honestly wouldn’t bat an eye at someone giving me registry info and don’t know anyone in my personal life who does.
lol It’s so interesting how these things vary from place to place.
But yeah we will be including registry information along with directions and hotel information in our additional info card.

@SupermarketGirl: I just attended a wedding in the fall and the invitation had about 4 or 5 little ‘stickers’ on it…all registries.
