I personally think it’s tacky; I think it would come off as though you expect to receive gifts from your guests. You should let your close family and friends spread it to the other guests through word of mouth. Good luck and congrats!

So you’re not making a wedding website?  I would just make a free one and include your website address on your future invites. 

I would think it’s a little odd to have a registry info on an invite for an engagement party.  I personally am alright with people doing it with  the official invitations because it seems like a lot guests expect it nowadays…but I would find it a little weird on an engagement party invite.

@kes18:  +1 on it being weird to include the registry info on the engagement invite

OP I wouldn’t do it, it’s tacky. It looks like a gift grab IMO

I didn’t know gifts were expected at an engagement party. Actually, I’ve never been invited to one, but I would just assume that with a wedding and possibly showers for guests to buy gifts for on the horizon, a couple that chose to throw an engagement party for themselves would not expect gifts for that too. I would probably bring a bottle of wine or something small like I do for any party host, but not more than that. Including registry information would definitely make it clear to your guests that you expect gifts, if that’s what you want.

From past experiences it seems tacky and greedy
