You do what YOU want!  Who cares what everyone else thinks.  You are always going to offend someone whether it’s the colors of the wedding, your choice in venue, food selection, etc.  I’m learning the older I get the less I care what other people think.

Technically, it is not correct to include the cards, but people are moving towards doing so because stores give them to you. They are trying to sell gifts, so I think it is really just the stores trying to advertise and make a profit. Traditionally, people ask family members/the bridal party where you are registered. This works just fine. It is also really easy to search for registries on the knot, or to check all the common ones where people register. You have to decide what you think is correct.

Do not put registry in your invite it is tacky and rude.  Your best bet is to do like other PP have said put it on your wedding website and direct guests to that

I also put my registry information on my wedding website. All of the invites I have received all contained the registry info inside the invite. It doesn’t bother me but because some people are so strongly against it, I kept it out of the invite.

Seriously how hard is it for someone to call/email/facebook the bride or groom or any of the parents to ask where the bride and groom are registered? It’s tacky to put the registry information with the invitation and people can easily figure it out other ways.

We are not registering anywhere, so we won’t be putting a card or any information with our invitations.  BUT….. I have received (many) invitations with the registry cards included and I have never been offended – it’s not like the couple are forcing me to buy things from the registry, only providing information that it’s an option.

I am about to prepare our invitations and plan to list our wedding website that I created.  It has all of the information and photos about us and our venue… as well as a tab for our registry.  I think its a nice way for everone to “get to know the bride/groom” and indirectly let them know where you are registered too.

I like when people let me know because lets be honest here, despite the whole “youre asking for a gift” comments people you invite are going to be buying you a gift!  I rather be told where you are registered at instead of searching your wedding webpage.
