    i think they are great, you dont get things you wont need or 100 sets of kitchen towels. I think the registry info should be on the shower invite, but definitely not on the wedding invitation. For the wedding it either should be passed along through word of mouth or on your wedding website. Just my 2 cents

    I love registries. It helps me know what to buy people!! For weddings I normally just give a check though.

    I loved my wedding registry too. It really made me feel loved that people went out and bought what I wanted and took the time to do it.

    I think your question is confusing. Are you asking for or against registries in general or including that information in the invite, because those are two very different questions and will get you very different responses.

    I had a registry & am so glad I did. I got most of my gifts at my bridal shower, althought I didn’t have a “bridal shower registry”. Most people brought money to the wedding and a few brought a registry gift. I had so many people ask where I was registered (due to a mishap with the shower invites) that I can’t imagine not having one. I guess you’ll get more money without one haha or maybe a bunch of toasters? lol

    You should NEVER put registry information in your wedding invite. This info should be on your wedding website or passed by word of mouth through family members.

    I think the idea behind not putting the info in the invitation is that the invitation to celebrate the wedding is supposed to be entirely separate from a guest wanting to gift the couple.  When it’s in the invite it looks like “Come celebrate with us!  And bring a gift”

    Whether a couple has one or not is fine with me. We didn’t have one, though. My Darling Husband was adamant that we not have one. He felt extremely strongly that the purpose of our wedding was not to get stuff from people, and a lot of our friends weren’t exactly flush with cash.  It was probably one of two things in the entire wedding planning process that he put his foot down about.

    We had a page on our wedsite entitled “Regarding gifts” that said, “Your love, good wishes, and company are the best gifts we could hope for. No others are necessary.”

    @FutureMuniz:  Awesome!! Great minds… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Have you gotten a lot of crap from people for not having a registry? I was shocked by how indignant some people were that we weren’t having one. We even got told that it was “inconsiderate” of us not to.
