@Legallyblondiebride: having people address the cards themselves I’ve seen, and didn’t think twice abotu it it’s alot of addresses to write. not a big deal to me.
the FB post was tacky if it was bride, but if it was the Maid/Matron of Honor – still tacky but i wouldn’t think much of it.

I feel the envelope thing is somewhat rude but I’d get over it..but the FB thing?!?!?! Listen, I love my registry, I’m obsessed I can’t stop looking but I would NEVER pimp it out on FB. EVER.

I think we spend a lot of time worrying about what’s rude.
I’m taking careful time and energy to write out meaninful thank you letters to put inside the envelopes and it ensures that I have all the info right. It’s also something thats sometimes out of your hands when a Maid/Matron of Honor or someone else asks such a thing at a shower. I’m busy enough planning a wedding I cant be policing everything someone else might do in my honour.

@antalyn: I agree!
My Maid/Matron of Honor had everyone fill out envelopes, and no one seemed to mind. I actually have never been to a shower where we didn’t do that, so I didn’t think twice about it. I took lots of time to write heartfelt and personalized thank-you notes to all my guests, a few people even remarked they were (pleasantly) surprised by all that I wrote. Maybe it’s a regional thing or something? No one at my shower was offended, so yay! 🙂

I’ve seen the envelope thing before and at the time it didn’t strike me as rude… but I was much younger. When I threw a shower for my cousin last year I liked the idea of prepping thank you cards so much that I addressed them for the bride, I didn’t ask the guests too.
The facebook comment though, that’s definitely rude.
