Bed Bath and Beyond Gift Registry
We registered with Bed Bath and Beyond and they gave us some registry inserts to hand out, or mail with our invites. Would it be tacky to send them out with the invites? I have recieved an invitation with a registry ticket before, but I was 15 and did not care at the time. What are we supposed to do if we don't send them out? Thank you for imput! =)

It is not tacky at all to send them out with your invitations to your shower. I would definitely do that. Its especially nice if your name is on the card because some people like to take those with to the store if they are uncertain of the spelling of your name.

what we did was we used tiny label stickers and typed where we were registered we stuck them on the card with the directions with our Invitaions (wedding). I really wouldn't find it rude to find a registry insert in a wedding invitation, because nowadays most people bring gifts anyway and it would make it easier for me rather than have to do research to figure out if the couple registerd anywhere or not. So if you don't want to mail the inserts out you can do similar to what I did. Sending them with the Shower invites, is good, but not everyone that you invite to the wedding will you invite to the shower right? So, not everyone would get one. Good Luck!

Etiquette states that the registry information should not be placed in the invitation because you are telling your guests to give you a gift. Now although that is the concept let it not "show" that intent. You can as Christina mentioned mention the information with the shower invitations..You can also have a website with wedding information and you can list your registry information on that. My company does offer a service that when guests RSVP for an event we advise them of where the couple is registered.

If you need my assistance, please feel free to email for more information.

I wouldn't put them in with the invitations, but my bridesmaids are using them with the shower's a start to getting the word out...

I've seen it done, and I'll probably do it. I think the etiquette behind it is outdated (in my opinion a lot of etiquette is).

Tanya and Matt,

It would definitely be somewhat "tacky" to send the registry inserts out with your invitations.

You seem like two very nice people... I'm from a very large family.
I've helped with a lot of wedding planning.

Most of the time, the over the phone, word of mouth is enough to let people know where you're registered. Also....many people who've attended weddings in the past, will automatically (especially the women of the families)...check with Macy's, Target,etc....

In other words, both of you, register where you desire,and most people will check when shopping for you.

Good luck and God bless !
