    IF (and only if) some one asks for your registry information is it proper to divulge it.

    Based on that; you could keep a few with you and give a few to your mom, his mom and your Maid/Matron of Honor (the people most likely to be asked about where the couple are registered) so that when someone does ask, you can pass them one of the cute cards.

    If the shower hostess is putting registry info on the shower invites you may give them to her, but they should not go inside wedding invitations.

    I got one of those in a wedding shower invite. I think that’s fine…but certainly not the wedding invites…

    I can understand them for the shower invites, since the hostess is the one sending out those invites and the gifts are not for her, and that showers’ main purpose are for gift giving. Other than that, never.

    I’ve only ever seen them with shower invites. You’re required to bring a gift to a shower so they aren’t rude.

    Everybody I know puts them in the shower invitations. I think that’s what they are really meant for. Shower invitations to me are a more acceptable place for them. Since the purpose is to shower a bride with gifts it stands to reason that providing the registry information would not be out of line.

    “we have this wonderful registry… but we just cant let you to know about it!!!!”

    whats the point of having a registry for guest to use because they might want to know what to gift, but you cant send registry cards with invitation or anything else? 

    whats the point of even having a registry if its “bad etiquette” to tell people about them?

    @SherylAA:  Because really you are telling people “this is where you can buy me a gift” and wedding invitations shouldn’t come with conditions or expectations.

    Thats my thought at least. There are PLENTY of other ways for people to find out your registry info other.
