    I included them. To me it was more rude to make people go hunt down our registry (especially the more computer-illterate that probably wouldn’t even have realized you could find that online). And I didn’t want a bunch of phone calls to me or my mom/MIL both of whom work wonky schedules.

     

    ETA: I’ve only had two wedding invites NOT include registry info – very common in my area. If I hadn’t come on the Bee, I never would have known it was such a big deal.

    I put the little square in because everyone I know has… I think it depends on what is the norm in your circle of people, I actually didn’t even know it was a big no no until the bee!!

    I put our website info on our invitations (because that’s where they had to RSVP). On our website, I had our registry info.

    I didn’t because everyone in both our circles gives money at the wedding anyway.

    On my “information” card with my invitation, I said: For registry and acommodation information, please visit our website…  so they know that i am registered- instead of just putting the website. i explained what was on the website

    We directed everyone to our wedding website on the reception card and spread the info to non-internet using invitees through word of mouth (mostly our parents…).  That seemed to work pretty well, though I don’t really mind getting the registry card in invitations.  We had a big discussion about this before sending the invitations and ALL of my older relatives and both sets of parents actually thought it would be better to include that information as a convenienced, so guests wouldn’t have to go to the trouble of looking it up.

    We did not send them. We had a little info card in our invite that had hotel/tradition information and indicated more wedding information could be found at our website. We also made our registries publicly searchable (so people could just google our names to find it). Anyone who wasn’t computer savvy asked our parents or if people asked us, we told them. Everyone figured it out! 🙂

    I said “hotel, venue, registry info and lots more available at our webist” and put the website address on a little insert.

    I have never gotten an invitation with registry info in it. I thought those little cards were for shower invites, not wedding invites.

    I registered for a few things to satisfy my mother and aunts. I don’t really want gifts and my friends know this. I realize that I’m in the minority on that, but I’m a little older than most on here. I set up my first home ten years ago and don’t need any of tue traditional home items. 🙂

    I’ve never gotten a wedding invitation with registry information on it. I didn’t even want registry info on my shower invites, but I’m told that many get annoyed when it’s not included. Ours didn’t have it…it’s not on our website, either. Seriously, all you have to do is Google the couple’s name, and usually their registry pops right up on the Google search, so I don’t really think it inconveniences people not to include it.
