Registry and invitation question - good idea or not?

I went to papersource this weekend and saw this beautiful invitation set that had a small separate card that said "in lieu of gifts we would like funds for our honeymoon." I think this is a great idea though I have heard it's kind of tacky to mention gifts in the invitation? What do you think?

hey that sounds like a nice idea. Sounds like they were trying to accomodate those exact requests (how to tackfully say "we want money for our wedding")

Funds for the honeymoon is a great request (the people who give like to know what you do with the money!) but I still think it's tacky to include it in the invitations. Let your family and friends know, so they can spread the word.

We had a honeymoon registry but we didn't put the registry info in our invitations (I have an uncle who was offended when other relatives did). What we did was put a little card that read "For more information, please visit our website" and gave our website url and had a link to our honeymoon registry there.

I second the idea of directing people to a webpage with your registry information listed. That's what we plan to do.

I'm sure your FI can whip up a snazzy site for you guys.
