Welcome to the can of worms! Technically yes, the advice you received was correct. It is considered bad etiquette to include registry info with your invitations. If your guests want to know, they’ll likely call you, your parents or a member of the wedding party for that info. BUT there’s the other side, where you know your guests best and if you think they wouldn’t be offended by having that information put on or in your information, add it. You know your guests best 🙂

This is a heated topic on the Hive. Some believe its tacky to include the registry info in the invite while others see no problem with it. I’m personally on team tacky but I think alot of it has to do with region. Some things are more accepted in different areas. 

We will be including our registry info on the shower invites as well as our wedding website.

Personally, I would not include registry info with your wedding invitations.  People will ask you or your family where you’re registered, word spreads.  Or maybe if they don’t know they’ll write you a check instead 🙂

Once I make a registry I am going to put it on my wedding website which includes tons of other information including menu, how we met, pictures of the venue and us, etc. I am going to include a little note in the invitation with our wedding website address.

We are putting it on our wedding website, but at another family wedding I heard from people that were annoyed because it wasn’t easy to find out where they were registered. So we may or may not put something in the invites….. 

 

I know its a hard balance but at the end of the day either way it will be a moment of gossip and nothing more. If people are annoyed with your actions either way they will get over it!

@salsaje: a wedding website is a website that your guests can visit to get more information about the wedding.

 

Our website is through mywedding.com (there is also theknot, ewedding, etc..)  We included our “story”, info about the bridal party, registry info, hotel information, activities to do, etc.!
