Where do I put my registry info?!?!

So I bought invitations that I will print out myself (I do this all the time so it's not what I'm worried about).

I have the invitation and the response cards. The response cards come back to me so I can't put them thereeee.

Do I put it on the invitation or do I make a different paper? And how do I word this?! :/

Because we registered at carnival.honeymoonwishes.com so people can buy us things for the honeymoon, such as drinks, massages, ect.

    Usually you pass the registry cards off to your MOH, Aunt, or friend that is throwing your Bridal shower. You don't put registry information in with your invites.

    The only other suggestion is to make a wedding website and tell people that they can look on there for more information. The website can be on the direction/map/hotel info card if you plan on making one. Then on the website have a link talking about your registry. -or- if you are printing Reception cards it can be on the bottom of those too. But I would put a wedding website not the registry site.

    Do NOT put registry in on the invite!!!!!! do you have a wedding website? if so, on the enclosure card, put your website on that. if you don't have an enclosure card, i suggest making some small card to include with the invite. make sense?

    usually, your MOH will pass the registry info along.

    I know that it's rude tp put the registry info in the invites, but how come every wedding invitation I've ever recieved has the registry included?

    My registry (Macys) sent me a little pad of notes to give out... so I gave them to my MOH to include with shower invites. I agree with everyone else, it is tacky to include that info in the invite, the website is a better place for that.

    I agree with the others, on it being tacky, but am just wondering why so many people do it...

    I think a lot of people just don't know what the proper way to do things is... I don't think most brides intend to do things that look tacky... but you're right a lot a people do it.

    Not quite sure why brides include it with their invites. obviously they either don't know it's tacky & rude or they just don't give a siht or some other reason i can't think of. most likely, they just don't know the etiquette.

    Why do we have to have this debate over and over and over again??? Why is it always such a big freaking deal. If someone wants to, then give them advice on how/where. If someone doesn't, then DONT! Geez people.

    I put them in mine. I would make a separate card that simply states, James and Jennifer are registered at wherever

    I'm having a small/simple wedding (50-80 all family and super close friends). Not having a bridal party, just us two; no MOH, no nothing. Our website is on the carnival honeymoon wishes but we don't use it or update it or nothing. AT ALL. No bridal shower. No hotel info. No STDS.

    I don't know what to do now.....

    Are you sending out hotel info or any other little flyer. You can put it at the bottom of that. If you are sure that no one is throwing you a shower, then it is fine to include.

    What did people do before there was such thing as a wedding website and/or save the dates?! My parents and fiance's parents would NEVER be able to figure such thing out online! So frustrating! Smiley sad

    I agree with The Potters ... I don't know who exactly makes up the rules of etiquette, but obviously I'm just "rude and tacky" because I think alot of it is just straight BS and should not be considered law when planning your wedding. I think if it fits your situation and you know that your family and friends would appreciate the information regardless of how they get it then it should be up to you how you want to send it out. In the invite, on a billboard , or yelled across a room... Alot of these rules just add stress and unnecessary expense.

    My cousin put it at the bottom of her invite and I didn't think anything about it. Didn't think it was tacky or rude or whatever. It was just small in the bottom left corner "The couple is registered at (store) and (store)". Made it easy IMO but I know the "rules" say not to put it on the invite.

    The following is a how to make a gift registry enclosure card to include with your invitations... according to this site it is only against the "RULES" to print it on the invitation... again I think that is completely up to you as a bride but if you want to include an enclosure here you go... if you want to add it to the invite itself I like Nik's cousins wording very simply "The couple is registered at _____" If you are registered at more than one store I would definitely go with the enclosure.

    I believe one of the biggest reason it is considered improper to include registry information in your invite is that it may seem to the guest, "you may come, but you must bring us a gift". It makes it seem as though it is a condition for attending the wedding and reception. Just a thought, and I know it's know what the OP asked. Her question has been covered.

    In the olden days, registry information was passed by word of mouth. Do you have relatives or close friends who could spread the word? Also, when people ask where you are registered, you are allowed to tell people where to find your registry.
