I think that if you’re having a mage informal affair then ok – but I would maybe find a place to put it on an insert of some sort.

Come to think of it – where would you put not only that, but the  "registered at" portion. I have a pocket fold….where did/are you putting yours. 

 

I hope that throwing in a little spin off added question was ok…:-)

I think putting your wedding website address on an insert of some sort is fine (maybe an accommodations card, or a directions/brunch card if you’re having those?  Something smaller that people will hold onto, so not the RSVP since they’ll be sending that back).  I wouldn’t put it on the main invite, as I think it would take away from the importance of the rest of the details. Plus, a http://www.weddingwebsite.com doesn’t necessarily look pretty

Sweeney2Be…. I am not sure that putting your registry information anywhere in your invitations is a good idea.  Some people (often of older generations) may be offended by this, as it can be seen as asking for gifts.  Even though it is pretty much assumed that guests should bring a gift, it is still more of an unspoken request.  Chances are your guests will already know where you’re registered if they were invited to your shower (where it is okay to include registry info on the invitation because someone else is hosting it for you, and the purpose of a shower is to "shower" the bride with gifts).  Your next best bet is to depend on word of mouth.  Tell your immediate family and your bridal party where you’re registered (if they’re not already asking!), and I’m sure they’ll spread the word.  If people ask where you’re registered, by all means tell them, but it could be construed as impolite to include this information in your invite.  

Sorry to hijack this post with my opinion And I hope that didn’t come across the wrong way…. I have just read a lot about this top and I don’t want you to chance any of your guests being offended!

Cupcake, thanks so much I didn’t know that I really don’t want to offend my guests. I never thought about it until the web site thing came up on an invite. Thank you for your input – it was totally helpful!!! THANKS! I’ve never been offended byu seeing it on or in inviites but I can see how older folks could be put off.

 

Thanks again!

Thanks for not minding my opinion   It could also be a regional thing — I’m in the Northeast and I’ve never seen registry info on an invitation, but if you’re in a different part of the country maybe this is more of a customary practice where you are.  Just wanted to put that warning out there for you in case you have any super-traditional old folks getting invitations!

I agree with cupcake.  I put it at the bottom of one of my inserts.  Those in our generation will know the registry info can be found on the website.  Those who are not web savvy are probably in the generation that would A. be offended to see registry info on the invite and B. know to contact your parents to find that info out 🙂

It’s funny – before I was married I didn’t think twice about the registry info – but now that I’ve gone through planning a wedding and reading up on etiquette – I pay attention!!  It’s one piece of etiquette that makes sense and I think should def be followed.  I’m not necessarily offended when a couple lists the registry info on the invite – but I definitly think it’s VERY TACKY!  🙂
