@Mrs Hedgehog: I know most people included their registry info in the shower invites on a card, but not on the actual invite.

Hmm I’m not etiquette savvy but I just received a shower invited that on the bottom said “The Bride is registered at ____ and ____” and I didn’t think anything of it. I guess they were kind of informal invites b/c they also said to RSVP via email, but again that didn’t bother me either!

@Mrs Hedgehog: I say go for it. Especially, if you have a separate card you can put it on. You know your guests, do you think any of them would be offended by it? If not, who cares what other people think?

I think the shower invitation typically does include information about the registry. I like the idea of using the separate card; I have seen that done and it’s a nice touch because I can tuck the card in my purse so I have it when I am out shopping and keep the invitation on my fridge. ๐Ÿ™‚

Well how else are they going to know where to buy your purdy presents!? Go for it! We included a separate card on ours, but I don’t think it’s a big no-no for the shower invite itself.

I’m pretty sure the etiquette police expect you to add that info to a shower invite in some way. Unlike the wedding, the entire point of the shower is to give gifts! Even Emily Post would give her blessing on this one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since its a shower i think its expected that its included i think as to which/where you put it is a matter of personal taste, not a etiquette thing.

I think registries are fair game for bridal showers (and even for wedding invites, depending on where you are – cultural differences!)

Add it on girl!

@Mrs Hedgehog: I added my registry on the invites.  I did not want to add the registry cards (from Macy’s and BBB) into the envelope.  To me it is cleaner and simple to have all the info on one invitation card.

I’m a badge-wearing member of the etiquette police, and it is totally fine (and expected!) to include registry info on a shower invite, since that’s kinda the point of a shower.  Just not on the wedding invites. ๐Ÿ˜‰

On my shower invite it said “Pitbullover is registered at x, y and z” and the other 2 showers Ive been invited to recently have had the same thing

I may have misread your OP, but you shouldn’t need to add them to any invitation, because you shouldn’t be holding your own shower.  If you are asking if you can forward them onto the host to include, I don’t see a problem.

I’ve actually never seen a bridal shower invite that didn’t have the registry info listed. I’ve hosted a few showers and I always just put the registry info on the actual invite but if you have the spare card, that would be nice.

@Mrs Hedgehog: Now I totally have “Dream Police” in my head lol

I think it is fine to put it on the invite or ccard. I would appreciate it as a guest. It is a shower, after all ๐Ÿ™‚
