    Hi everyone, How do you let your guests know where you are registered? Do you put where you are registered on your invitations?

        Traditionally, word of mouth was the proper way for people to share this information. With wedding websites and such, it's become increasingly common to add information there, however, it is commonly done with a disclaimer (Your presence is the only gift we want), so as not to make your wedding seem like a gift-grab.

        Proper etiquette says that under no circumstances, should you include this information with your wedding invites.

        Shower invites are different, as they are intended to "shower" the new bride she would need to set up house, so a registry card can be included with the invite, but it is considered bad form to add that information to the face of an invitation.

              I agree about not putting it in the invitation. I think it's incredible tacky when an invitation comes with registry information. Anyone who cares will ask your parents or bridal party if you are registered somewhere.

                I don't even know if we'll register, because I do not feel right having a shower (most of the people we invited are coming to the wedding and I would rather they spend their money coming), but if we do register I'll just put it on the website or let my mom tell people when they ask.

                    I put the bloomingdales registry card in my invites. I had not discovered this forum before I sent the invites out. I am surprised that I did that though. I remember getting an invite with a card included and I thought to myself "they just want another gift" then a year later, I do the same thing.. shame on me.
