Okay guys please nobody be rude lol. I wasn’t aware that including registry info was a bad thing or rude/tacky. After reading all the forums on this it’s really bugging me!! I did put in a registry slip that bed bath and beyond gave us when we registered and my invitations are addressed and stamped ready to be mailed. But I’m really contemplating buying new envelopes and stamps and just opening the invitations up to take out the registry slip. What would you do?

    What how do they know about our registry if we don’t tell them? I didn’t know you couldn’t tell them where you are registered I’m confused

    I guess by word of mouth? Lol and everyone is saying registry info is for bridal showers not wedding invites. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    That is a ridiculous rule. As a guest I would be annoyed if they didn’t state their registry with the invite 🤦🏻‍♀️I’m doing it so I guess call me tacky lmao.

    How much more time and money would it cost to get new stamps and envelopes? I'd just leave it or try the steaming method. Maybe steam a corner open and tease the slip out


    The whole being coy about your registry is a bit of a farce IMO. The registry info is on a separate slip, not on the face of the invite, so it could be worse

    Honestly I think it’s ok to leave it aha it sounds like it’s a lot of time and effort to undo this

    I think you should definitely KEEP them in there. People want to buy you guys gifts and are going to be asking non stop where you are registered at. We weren't going to insert them in ours but everyone i spoke to said we should definitely have them in there and have it somewhere easily accessible for people to see.

    I completely agree! People would rather know what you would like than guess and waste time and money on something you don't want. Also a lot easier on the guest, they dont have to go hunting for your registry information.

    Same. I had a details card in my invitation envelopes, one side was online RSVP info and the other side was where we are registered

    I would redo. You could do that for shower. The registry is more word of mouth.

    This is an extra invitation I gues on the bright side if I don’t redo them it’s not the first thing you see, the slip is behind the rsvp card

    Girl do what YOU want! I personally would feel it was silly to open an invitation and not see registry info. I don’t want to be left guessing what to gift I’d rather some direction. Maybe those who think it’s rude have a snooty crowd lol

    I say leave it. If it's already all the way on the back it will be fine. I would not be offended at all to have that in the invitation.
