My mother in law says that at the wedding shower its rude to ask for gifts. So in the invite we should not put that we are registered anywhere because at wedding shower there is no gifts. She says this is wedding shower Etiquette. Has anyone heard of such a thing?

Ummm…she must be confused. The whole point of a wedding shower is to shower the bride with gifts, thus the people invited should know where she is registered.
It is rude to put that info on the wedding invite though.

Isn’t the point of a shower to “shower the bride (or couple) with gifts?” I thought it was technically the only time you were “supposed” to put the registry info on there!

I agree with the others, that’s why brides are always opening gifts at their shower! It’s what it’s for. We put our registry info on the invite.

Thanks Ladies! I needed help with this one. I jus recently went to a friends wedding shower and she had the places she was registered at on the invite. It helped me out to pick something she actually wanted rather then getin her something she wouldnt like or didnt use. So I got it Wedding shower yes..Wedding invite no.

What would you be doing at your shower if not opening gifts? She is confused/ wrong. It’s totally fine to register somewhere and put that info in the shower invite.

You shouldn’t be putting the registry information on the shower invitations, whoever is hosting the shower does that. I didn’t even see the invitations until after the shower.

Yes a shower is to shower you with gifts but it’s ALWAYS rude to ask for gifts and thus I do not think you should put the registry in the invite, the host/ Bridesmaid or Best Man should spread the word verbally.
