If I add where we are registered to the Bridal Shower invites? It just makes sense to me to add it since it is a shower but still… And if it is okay to include it should I leave it on the actual invite or add a seperate card explaining where we are registered. I have a matching card that was supposed to be used for an RSVP but seeing as how we obviously wont need and RSVP card for a Bridal Shower I can just put it on there that way it is with the invite but not on it.

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. 😉

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. 😉

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 🙂

i feel like shower invites are exempt from the no registry info rule

if you look online on a lot of wedding invitation prints…they always include a line stating where the bride is registered. if you research online what information to include on shower invites, it also states that you should say where you registered. technically, a shower is when they “shower” you with gifts….so i think its appropriate and appreciated.
