We didn’t have a wedding website for that reason – 70% of our guests are older family members who wouldn’t make use of it. We put inserts discreetly in with the rest of our invitation suite & haven’t had any fall-outs.

If that’s what’s done in your social circle, go ahead and include the registry info with the invite. It’s only tacky if people aren’t expecting it.

Your other option is leaving your registry cards with your parents – and having them pass the information on. We were going to do that, but not everyone would ring to check, especially friends, so we risked it.

Maybe you could go for a split decision. Put a registry card in the invitations to people whom you are sure will be ABSOLUTELY DEVESTATEDLY LOST WITHOUT ONE, and forgo it for the internet-savvy. Everybody wins?

My opinion is that the stacking of the insert cards doesn’t matter that much, and you’re better off including it only for the people who you feel really will be looking for it.  I totally know what you mean about older folks who aren’t compuer-savvy.  But for younger people who are up to speed on wedding websites, online registries, etc. it might seem a little strange to put a card in your invitation telling them where to buy your gift.

Are you having a shower?  Then you can put in your registry and not feel like its tacky.  I think its a regional thing.  We wouldn’t put our registry info in the wedding invite, I have never had it in any invitation that I have received.  Maybe put it in the invites for people that are traveling.  They would be the ones to me that would worry about it the most.

Sounds like you feel pretty confident you 1) need to include the registry info and 2) no one will be offended.  Reading your comments, it sounds like you’ve answered your own question!  🙂

Things are ONLY tacky if they’re unfamiliar. If every wedding invite you’ve received has had the information on it? Go with it.

If thats the way its done in your circle then i think its alright to include it in the invitation. Dont make it harder on your guests if they are used to having the info right on the invite. I dont care for these wedding “rules” too much, you should just go with what works for you and your guests.
