Would it be impolite to have a card that is for both rsvp
and registery? I am trying to be solvent, and eco friendly. Plus, I have a wedding website for all that!! Thanks!

    Your registry info shouldn't be anywhere on your invites at all.. that is what the wedding website is for

    A registry doesn't belong on an invitation suite. Just have your website listed on the RSVP.

    I would put your wedding website at the bottom of your invite if you aren't doing a details card. If you put it on the RSVP card that gets sent back to you then your guests no longer have that information handy.

    I second this.

    Registry info on invites/RSVPs can come off as gift-grabby. I believe you're the opposite of that

    Agreed to all - just put your wedding website. If you're trying to be more eco-friendly, you can do your RSVPs all online

    Registries and gifts should never be mentioned in your invitation.

    I'm the total opposite. I personally dislike and don't have a wedding website. I think its completely rude to ask someone who may not be savvy at all with technology (most people I know) and ask them to figure out how to navigate to a website just to get basic info they need. That's horrible to do to someone in my opinion and I'm someone in their mid-20's mind you.

    If you have a wedding website then put it on your invitation, not the RSVP so they can keep the info handy. But you could also do what I did and make a nice little card stating that their presence is more than enough and you just look forward to spending the day with them but if they still wish to get something then put your registry info. I've received numerous compliments on it from people saying "I'm so glad you put that in there or else I'd have no idea what to even look at or what your house colors are or anything". It all depends on your crowd as well. I knew people wouldn't be offended with what I did but people you know may be the opposite.

    I’m sending my formal invites out next week. On my RSVP I have my website listed.

    I only sent one invitation front and back. The rest was done on the website. It’s not impolite now, it’s a lot more coming.

    Registry information never goes on the invite, it just goes on the website. I'd list your website on the RSVP card and that's it.

    Did you say something like "more information on back of card?"

    On the back of the card we have a picture of us, 2 little cute sayings, and then said, "Please visit our wedding website for more details and to RSVP by September 11th, 2019 - 'put the full website link'"

    It took me forever to get the wording concise and eloquent. Feel free to use that to save yourself some brain power on more important things!

    We actually hand wrote our registry on the inside of the envelope flap so that when you open it you can see it! Not traditional but it’s worked for us!
