You aren’t supposed to put anything about registries on the wedding invite.

Word of mouth or wedding website or something like that to let people know.

We aren’t putting anything in our invites about our registry.

Just the wedding website address for more info. Our registries are on our wedding website.

It’s not just okay, it’s normal! Don’t include a card, just put it on your website, or tell your parents and your bridal party so they can spread the word to your guests.

We didn’t put anything about registry on our invites.  I am having folks RSVP via an email account specifically for the wedding, and I will reply with wedding details to each guest individually, including registry information.

I am including a Details card with some extra info on hotel block and transportation, and I make mention that our registries are listed on our wedding website. That way if people want to know, they can go look, but the names are not included in the actual invitation. I asked this on WB and a big debate started and I almost took that out, but then I changed my mind. I personally don’t think it’s a big deal to inform people where it’s located, but I do think it’s unnecessary to include it in the actual invitation, only because I don’t want to draw so much attention to it.

We didn’t include registry info in our invites. We don’t have a wedding website either. We are just relying on word of mouth if people are interested.

I made our invites (not in a vacuum, showed them to fiance every step of the way, sent scans to both sets of parents for opinions), and right when I’m about to start printing them, everyone says, “But what about our gift registry? How are people going to know?”

Not through our invites! I realize everyone does this nowadays, but I don’t want to jump on that particular wagon. I just found it interesting that it’s now seen as the practical thing to do, because otherwise how will people know where to shop?

They can pick up the phone and call any of the six of us! Or email, twitter, fax, whatever. If you can’t reach us through any of those methods you probably shouldn’t be invited!

I didn’t include a registry card.  We requested RSVP by phone/email and nearly everybody who’s rsvpd as asked abotu our registry. So, the word is out there.
