Yes. Not good. Put website on info cards, then have registry info there.

Edit: There being the website, not the info cards. :p

Agree–registry info on invites is poor taste.

I agree that it’s not really appropriate, but I”m sure that there are some social circles that still do it and find it totally acceptable – I’m sure most of my guests wouldn’t think twice if I did it, because it’s not really that big of a deal here. (I won’t be doing it, because I think it’s a little rude, but I’m just saying..haha)

I can see why it’s still taboo to include a registry card.  But I just think it’s more convenient so I know where to go to buy instead of having to go to their website.  It’s skipping that extra step! 😀

I think its tacky.  The people invited to your wedding know you and your fiance.  They will ask you where you are registered (or ask your family or wedding party or other friends).  People will know where to go with out putting the registry info in or on your invitations.

I know it’s considered bad taste, but honestly, as a guest I appreciate it, because I don’t have to go to some wedding website, or if i lose the info card I at least havea store in mind and can look up their names….

I don’t really understand the bad taste part. People who want to buy gifts will buy them regardless, people who aren’t going to bring gifts aren’t going to just because there’s a registry note on an invite.

I also wear white shoes after labor day, so perhaps i’m just a rude individual. Hah.

I agree with fiya. As I guest I much prefer just get a wee card with the invite.

IMO this issue has become about being ‘technically correct’, and not what’s practical and convenient for your guests (which is what I think etiquette is TRUELY about!).

Who would ACTUALLY be offended by a registry card, other than someone who was nitpicking for the sake of following ‘the rules’?

We will be including information with our invites, and I hope other couples who invite us to their wedding do the same 🙂

cre– ive definitely gotten more than a few websites with registry info here in texas. i never thought a thing of it until i got to weddingbee.  i also don’t understand who would be offended by the inclusion of a registry? i mean, aren’t registries the norm these days? and isn’t bringing a gift what is socially acceptable? i just dont get why it is in such bad taste i guess…..

With the internet, it’s so easy to find someone’s registry, so I don’t ever need anyone to tell me where they’re registered. Smile

Before websites, the proper thing was to register at the major stores in the area of the wedding/most of the guests, and have the Maid/Matron of Honor discreetly pass the word along.

What a PITA!

Yeah really….my mom and/or mother in law are not going to”discreetly” pass anything along. Haha. I love them to death but their approach might end up turning a few more heads than a lowly little info card stuck in an envelope.
