I’m hosting a bridal shower for my Maid/Matron of Honor who is also getting married this spring. I’m wondering if its ok to include where she is registered in the invitation? I know that it’s a faux pas to include registry info in your wedding invites, but does the same etiquette apply for a shower?
I’m thinking its ok to include it since the point of a bridal shower to shower the bride with gifts.
What’s your take?

It is OK, not sure why it’s OK, but all the etiquette sources give you the go!

You’re exactly right – it’s ok to include registry information in shower invites because a shower is a gift giving event – literally, to shower the bride with gifts.
Likewise, the reason you don’t include registry information in a wedding invite, is because you are asking guests to celebrate with you, not bring you gifts. (although etiquette gurus also maintain that a gift is required to bring to a wedding. gets tricky, haha!)

ok. That’s what I thought, 🙂 Thanks!
