I don’t think an invitation is the place for registry information in general. Maybe the link to your wedding website with that information listed is more appropriate?

I know there are websites to setup money registries. No experience in that department, however.

I would second what the first reply said – do not put it on your invitation, whether it’s a traditional registry or otherwise. Put a card that directs people to a website, and list the registry on the website. Also, make sure your parents and wedding party know where you registered, and let them spread the word.


That being said – Home Depot and Lowe’s don’t do registries anymore – my FH had the same idea. Sears does one, but it can be quite inconvenient and you can’t add all products to the registry, which can be annoying. We opted to use Amazon for our ‘tools’ registry. The nice thing about Amazon is you can registry for almost anything on there. I highly recommend it if you want to go the untraditional route.

Agreed.  Don’t put any mention of gifts on the invitation, also don’t include any registry cards or anything in the envelope.

We registered for ‘normal’ registry stuff, but we didnt want to have more than 3 registries. So we made our main registries at Bloomingdales and Macy’s and then we used myregistry.com for other items that we could not find at macys or bloomies. You can add any item from any store, and even items that are not online to that registry (so you’d be able to add anything from home depot, lowes etc). We added some art pieces and other items not available in regular stores.

I also STRONGLY agree with the registry info on an invite – don’t do it! We added a seperate card in our invitation suite directing people to our wedding website (which has links to our registry but we didnt even mention the registry on the seperate card). It says something like, “For more celebration details, please visit our website…”.

We’re strongly considering Ikea and Lowes, but putting the items on myregistry.com, FWIW. But go through your things really carefully and consider upgrades. I totally understand where you’re coming from, but I was surprised at what could have used replacing when I did that.

Plus it’s nice to have backups. Our old drinking glasses have recently started cracking in the dishwasher… even though we have cheapies that are probably not meant for reuse, it makes me kinda wish I didn’t have to wait to get new ones. 🙂

@cuvergrl20: I’m using MyRegistry.com and it lets you register for anything from anywhere so you could theoretically have a Lowes or Home Depot registry! Plus if you do decide you want to upgrade some smaller things, that could be on there as well and it would all be listed together. Good luck with your new basement 🙂

People will find your registry no matter what! And if they can’t find it they’ll ask you or your parents where you’re registered.

You can always register on Amazon.com for whatever you want. But I know as a guest I like to shop in a store for a gift.
