Hello, I have a question about honeymoon registry. We are a older couple and have both been married before but have never had a wedding so have decided to have a wedding because of our past and finally finding our true soulmates. So I am not having a bridal shower because we just moved in together and have everything we need. We are taking a cruise and Carnival offers a honeymoon registry so we did it. Now most of our guest are on facebook where we have an event page but we didn’t create a website his family lives few hours away so it’s hard to do word of mouth we were wondering if we should put our registry cards in our invatations? I’ve been seeing lots of post about how tackey it is to add it to your invatations but if i were the one getting the invatation I wouldn’t think it was tackey. So should or shouldn’t we add them to our invatations?

I have read the same things and find it rediculous! My personal opinion on this is… If I have to track down where you are registered it frustrates me AND I feel like when ther isn’t a registry card you’re implying “we want money” which is worse in my opinion. Guests should have other options to give you and making it easy to know what you want by putting a card in the invite seems like the best way to do so! I say who cares what others think is tacky, do what you want otherwise you will get a bunch of things you don’t need and guests will be confused on what to get you, etc. Registry cards just make life easier.

People really need to relax about how the bride and groom deal with their registry.
90% of people are GOING to want to know where you are registered – can we all stop pretending that people are not going to give us gifts.
I’m my own person, I’m a good person and the people that are guests at my wedding know this – there is no need for them to assume I’m a greedy, money-grubbing bride if I decide to tell them where I’m registered before they ask. If they don’t get us a gift we won’t bat an eye. I don’t live my life out of an etiquette book.
I don’t think it’s offensive for you to mention it.

@corkeyjenny26301: I would do word of mouth only. It is in bad taste to put registry inserts into invites. Since you two have been together so long, people will likely want to give you cash anyways 🙂
