Do you have time to reprint them? I’d do that!

Honestly…we didn’t put it on our invites and people kept asking where we were registered. Lol I know it’s considered a faux pas by some, but I wouldn’t lose sleep over it.  It sounds like it’s inconspicuous and I wouldn’t be offended to see it on your invite.  That said, if you’re still uncomfortable, then your idea of a sticker seems like a good solution.

tpot23 :  where are you located? In the UK it’s fairly common and not rude to include registry info on the back of the invite or on an insert within the invite envelope

I wouldn’t worry too much. I guarantee someone will be offended by some aspect of your wedding no matter how careful and considerate you try to be. At least this faux pas will be useful to many of your guests.

I would leave it be. I honestly think the idea that putting registry info on an invitation should not be concidered rude or anything like that. People are going to come to your wedding. Majority, if not all, are going to bring you gifts because that’s common courtesy! It’s a billion times more convenient to have the registry info given to them rather than y’all getting multiple phone calls about it.

Eh I would let it go.  You said it’s on the back.  I included where we were registered on a little slip of paper separate from the invitation, and no one batted an eye.  People are going to ask/want to get you a gift.  I got so nasty comments on here about it though so apparently some people really think it’s tacky.  If that’s the case within your social circle then I would consider reprinting.  But for what it’s worth no one in my 250 person guest list complained.

I know a lot of people think it’s *tacky* to put registration info invites, but I personally wouldn’t think twice about it. If anything it’s helpful. Plus it’s on the back. I’d say leave it and don’t worry about it 🙂

Just leave it! You did yourself and your guest a major time saving favor! And if Aunt Ethel will be offended… meh.

If it’s buried on the back with a bunch of other details, I think you should be fine! It’s when it’s prominently displayed on the front with all of the important information that I’d raise my eyebrows. Like, “the wedding is on this date and time, at this location, and make sure you bring us one of these specific gifts.” If you have things on the back like hotels, travel info, etc. then it’s kind of like a wedding website in print form and it’s fine to put registry info on there. 

However, you’re the only one who knows your circle and whether your great-aunt Sally will clutch her pearls over it. If you think there might be a few, maybe consider reprinting a few just for them? Or add the sticker?

Etiquette is regional and situational; if it’s the norm in your social group for people to print registry information on the invitations, then you can figure your guests probably won’t be bothered. If you’re not sure if it’s the norm, or you do think certain people would think poorly of you, then you could reprint or put stickers on just the invitations of people who would be bothered!

I think it’s ok. Some people are fussy about that kind of stuff here, but I’ve found that in real life no one would bat an eye.  Depends on your friends and family, who you know better than us!

I personally would not care at all if I received an invite with registry info. I’m not sure what typically happens in my region but I know I’ve struggled to find registries before. This would just make it easier for me to get you a gift (which I want to do if you care enough about me to invite me to your wedding!)
