Is it tacky to note where we have registered on the invitation? I know I’ve seen the registries mentioned on invitations before, but I’m not sure how well it’s received.
How else would people know where to shop?
Or, would it just encourage more "cash" gifts if the registry isn’t mentioned??

What about the people who don’t have internet access? Those do exist, you know!
I think it’s an assumption that people feel like searching and hunting for a wedding registry or racking their brains for what to get you. You also take a chance with them never bothering to see your site since you won’t mention the registry is on there. It might sound awful of me to say, but I don’t want just any old tacky junk to lug back to NYC from Atlanta. That probably completely sounded bridezilla-ish. Please don’t chastise me too much for that, but you don’t know some of the people I know! They photo copy invitations to weddings and think they’re invited.

Putting gift registry is up to the couple. Things change. Young people nowadays are busy and are practical enough not to be sensitive about this.
I would want the couple to like the gift they are going to get from me and I don’t like the burden of second-guessing what to give. What is good enough for me may not be for you. So I don’t mind receiving an invite with a gift registy but of course, this is just one of the opinions you may get.
If you want to play it safe, then just don’t put the gift registry. That way you won’t hear anything negative even before your big day. Wish you luck.
