etiquette

ok so we sent our invites without the registry info on it.  As on a previous post we all talked about how its rude and bad etiquette and bla bla well my mom tells me that evreyone haas been calling her asking her for my registry and guests are complaining why wasn't it on the invite?  Also guests are calling and asking about dresscode and why was that not specified on the invite?  Whats the deal?  People were really expecting registry info ont he invite and my mm said that its how she did it for her wedding too.  Just thought I'd share.  Is anyone else getting those phone calls or e-mails?  I'm sending out a post card next week with that info on it :)

i think you should continue to let your mom handle....if you send it out it looks like you're soliciting presents....and NO, you were right not to include it on or with your invites....it does NOT go out with the invite....

As far as etiquette is concerned you do NOT put it on your invite. You can put your website address on your invites to the wedding or your shower and have your website list all of those details or your MOH can include registry info in your shower invites. But mostly use word of mouth your families can spread the word.

I found this article:



Q.


My fiance and I recently registered at two department stores, and we're having a bit of a problem when it comes to letting guests know where we're registered. I'm not having a bridal shower, and I'm definitely not going to send registry cards in the invitations, so my question is: How do we let people know?



A.


The only way to let people know is to tell them. It may seem impractical and frustrating -- to wait for people to ask -- but there it is. Just make sure your parents, wedding party, and other close friends and family know where you're registered, so that when people ask them they can let them know. People know to ask someone when they're ready to buy you a present. And remember that if people ask you where you're registered -- or even what you would like as a gift -- it's okay for you to tell them the names of the stores. It's not as if word can be spread only by those close for you. By and large, you shouldn't worry about it too much. People will ask and let others know.

I just think people are so used to getting them in the invitations. I have gotten many many invites with the registry in them, but never one without it in there. I suppose it could be rude to some people, but what a pain to have to call a bunch of people to find out information that could have been a "hit two birds with one stone" sort of thing.
