  • yes...just like a wedding invite says the couple is registered here. people would rather know what you want/need than get something you wont be able to use or will have to return. just a small note saying "mommy to be, is registered at ....." wherever she is registered

  • yes usually you do put a thing saying where you are registered so people know what you want

  • I would say yes but to be completly ettiquette friendly that information would be given out when the guest RSVPs

  • It is considered tacky to do that, honestly. The way to do that is you send the invitation. Then when they call to RSVP, the guest should ask something about where they are registered, is there something particular that they are needing or a theme they are going with, etc. THEN, the person hosting the event says "Well, they're registered at ___ and _____".

    Otherwise, it looks not so much like an invitation to celebrate the birth of the child, which, incidentally, 99% of us bring gifts to as part of the celebration, and it looks more like a shakedown / solicitation of gifts.
