    As a guest I don’t care for it and as a bride I didn’t do it. We are attending a wedding in early March and have recieved in three seperate mailings the registry information…enough is enough.

    Etiquette is loosely interpreted these days so it is really up to you. I would suggest indicating your wedding website instead (perhaps as an included card) and put your registry details on the website instead.

    I’d recommend against it; traditionally etiquette is against it and with the internet nowadays, it’s really easy to find where a couple is registered at. If the moms/aunts wnat to; they can spread the word on where you are registered at.

    Actually, I kinda see their point in this instance.  If Mom is insisting that you do it, then go ahead and do it.

     

    But then, I don’t live my life by the etiquette rules, sometimes real life means you have to make an exception.

    what we did was put our wedding website on our save the dates and then put our registry info on there.

    also people who want to know will just ask; i personally still wouldnt put registry info in with my invites.

    Wouldn’t do it if they paid me $1000 bucks. They want to know? Oh look, I can just tell them verbally!

    We have ours on our website (on a separate tab that isn’t “in your face”). That was as far as I was willing to go.

    I wouldn’t do it, if people want to know where you are registered, they will google ypur names and your registry will pop up.

    Doesn’t registry info usually come with the shower invite?
