@Dizbee:  advertising the registry info on the bridal shower invite/wedding website/word of mouth is perfectly fine. Advertising it on facebook and tagging people no less is classless, rude and greedy! some people have no shame!! Is this what people are using social media for?? Heaven help us!

@Dizbee:  

Oh my. I don’t know how he could possibly think that such a brazen attempt to solicit gifts from his family and friends would be well received. His poor Fiance may be mortified when she sees this.

I had a friend who did this multiple times. They also registered for food. It was bizarre. He is removed from my feed.

@Dizbee:  I was hoping the status might be an attempt at humor, but it doesn’t really sound like it was.  (And, let’s be honest, even if it was meant to be funny, it really wasn’t.)

I’m not a stickler for etiquette either, but I’d definitely see this as rude.  It really makes it seem as though the couple is getting married solely for the gifts.  (I’m sure that’s not the case [at least I hope not!], but that’s the impression it gives.)

Fiance and I didn’t even put our registry information on our invite.  We are just doing word of mouth.  I know that lots of couples these days put registry information in the invitations and websites which some people still think is rude.  I think FB might be a little TOO “progressive”. lol
