    Personally, I could care less if I receive wedding invitations with registry info.  In fact, the majority of invitations I’ve recevied (and we had like 6 weddings this summer) have included registry cards.  Maybe I only attend the weddings of tacky, rude people, lol.  🙂

    I wouldn’t be offended, but I would think about how she didn’t know etiquette and was a little rude.

    I never knew it was rude til my best friend got married and I got a look at the wedding planning world. To me, as a guest, I love it because it makes things simple.

    But we’re not doing it. We’re linking registries to our wedding website, and putting that info as a separate card within the invite.

    @Mrs. Spring: same here.

    I never knew it was rude until I was planning my own wedding.

    I never knew it was “tacky” or rude before either, until I started planning. I think it’s helpful. I think we might include them, because I have a lot of not-so-computer-savvy relatives that wouldn’t want to go to the wedbsite- I have relatives that don’t own a computer! So I think it depends on your guests and how you think they’d react, too.

    I really think the whole thing is ridiculous!!  Of course people are going to give you gifts, why not make it easier for them by puttitng a stupid little card in the invite! you are RIGHT! the people that put the website are basically doing the same thing. If someone told me “I think it is a little rude for you to put the registry card in the invite” i would punch them in the FACE!! LOL  i feel very strongly about this obviously 🙂

    Pretty sure all 8 wedding invitations we received this summer had registry info cards.  I don’t care for it, but it’s hardly the end of the world… especially since I give cash and never, ever get anything off registries 🙂

    most invites we received have the registry card included – i have no problem with it. personally i dislike websites with screaming love songs at full volumne as pics of the happy couple flash past my eyes before im directed to the registry link

    I won’t be doing it because I’m aware of the rule, but I received an invitation with a registry card in it not too long ago, and I didn’t care at all.

    Just mention your website somewhere on the invite. Or don’t at all, and let people ask you. Everyone will be able to find your registry either way, and no one will give you or your etiquette-no-no-registry-cards dirty looks.

    Honestly, almost every single invite I have gotten recently has included it. Mine didn’t, but it had a link to our website which had it on there (online rsvp). I am not fond of the obvious inclusion of it, but I also am not going to spend too much energy getting worked up about it.

    I recently received a wedding invitation that included a little card containing the *four* places where the couple was registered. Immediately following was the line “There will be a CASH BAR at the reception” with no fewer than 4 exclamation points following it.

    All important info, yes. But it’s not the message–it’s the way it’s delivered.
