    In my area I would say about 50% of invitations I’ve received have the information. It definitely doesn’t surprise me or upset me when I see it. I’m not doing it, but definitely normal in my area.

    I think on east and west coasts it’s totally viewed as tacky. The midwest and the south tend to get away with being a little more tacky or not viewing it as tacky at all. My family is from Texas and GA and all of my cousins invites have it.

    @MsBrooklynA: Originally down by Mankato but live in the twin cities now. Even for weddings in the cities haven’t seen that done either

    @MsBrooklynA: I didn’t and would never. 

    I didn’t mean to offend, but in my opinion it’s tacky.

    People often include registry cards in the invitations here. We didn’t though but put the information on our website only 2-3 weeks before the wedding (only because people kept on asking).

    I did that with our invitations. The ones we receive ALWAYS have registry info and I didn’t think it was not appropriate. It wasn’t until last week that I saw people were offended by that. In Ohio (again, the midwest), it’s perfectly acceptable.
