    @shawndy:  I think its a good idea because then you wont be bothered when everyone wants to know if you have one. and I think more people might make use of it instead of just winging it or feeling helpless about guessing what you want.

    Technically, you’re not supposed to. The information should have been on your shower invites, and people would get it that way. If you didn’t invite everyone to your shower/you didn’t have one, you can make a wedding website, include the information on there, then include your website in your invitations.

    I made a website like all the trendy kids are doin nowadays. You can find some that are free and they don’t take super long if you don’t want to get intense about them. The nice thing about linking them to your registry is that the younger generation can get on your site, find your registry, and be ordering things in like 30 seconds. The bad thing about it, is that if you direct the older generation to the website, they tend to get twitchy in the eye.

    But deep down, I think that sometimes the only people who think including registry info in with invites is tacky are fellow brides to be who read too many magazines, cause i certainly never thought twice about it until I was planning my own wedding, when suddenly it became the big thing not to do.

    Personally, I don’t think it’s appropriate. But I understand that this is a regional issue. So, if your friends and family have done it or you know that they wouldn’t find it offensive, then it shouldn’t be a problem.

    Keep in mind that people generally do know how to find registry information, even if you don’t have a wedding website, by asking parents, the bridal party or Google.

    @shawndy:  I would go for it. No one is going to get so offended by the concept that they’ll make an issue of it and I truely think that it would be easier considering the age of the majority or your guests. I agree with AllShookUp in that the only people who care are the Future Brides.

    I just got an invite from my cousin who included a card with the registry information and I felt it was very smart. Not tacky at all

     

    Small Edit the asking for money and including fanacial information is very tacky but direction in where to go is your guest would like to buy a gift they know you want is not

    I put the info in the shower invites, and on the wedding website. No one had any issue finding where we were registered to my knowledge. We got plenty of gifts to prove it!

    Our registry info was on the shower invite and is on our web site (web site was on the save the dates, and guest info card in our invites.) The Moms also know, so if anyone asks, they can direct them there.

    Please don’t do this. There is honestly absolutely no benefit. I’ve been married twice, and not a single person was confused about where we were registered either time. Most people will find out from such inserts when you have a shower, others by using the internet, and still more by asking you or your parents directly. But including them, however, you invite reproach and could offend some of your guests. As a good host, you should do everything reasonably possible not to offend guests, whether you think they should be offended or not.
