Technically, you’re not supposed to put registry info on an invite, so maybe she meant to “forget”?  Hopefully word will be spread by mouth!

My Maid/Matron of Honor didn’t leave anything off, but she did write “RVSP” instead of “RSVP” on all of them.  No big deal, I didn’t even notice until my brother pointed it out to me!

@Willow1991:  Hmm, maybe you’re right and I’m confused!  Either way, most people will ask her when they call to RSVP so just make sure she knows the right info and you should be ok!

I’d bet that people who are interested in buying off your registry will ask where you’re registered when RSVP’ing. Or they could find out through word of mouth or even just typing your name into a few of the main stores where people tend to register to see if your name is there. I’m sure it’ll work out! ๐Ÿ™‚

None of our registry info ended up on either my wedding invitation or bridal shower invitation, and things all worked out okay.  At my bridal shower, I ended up receiving a lot of lingerie anyway.  And there’s nothing wrong with that… ๐Ÿ˜‰

People will probably ask when they RSVP, or they’ll ask you directly. (One friend lost her invite, and asked me the day before)

Its pretty easy to find registries online if a guest wants to.

My Maid/Matron of Honor was 8 months pregnant when she threw my shower and had the classic brain fog associated.  She wrote the wrong month but the right date.  So it was set for a month before and on a random Tuesday (May 19th instead of June 19th).  It was only realized pretty late and everyone had gotten the Tuesday off but I had asked for the date it was supposed to be off and  for a while it looked like I wouldn’t be able to make it to my own shower.  We asked everyone what worked for them and set it for the 9th of June instead.  Everyone laughed it off as the crazy pregnant woman’s error. My poor Maid/Matron of Honor.  She gave birth just over a week after the wedding but she was having contractions through the ceremony.  What a trooper.

My future sister-in-law threw a “his side” family shower for me, and forgot to include the date on the invitation before she had them printed. They caught it though and wrote it in afterwards. It was still a beautiful invitation and an lovely shower ๐Ÿ™‚
