(Invite by Michelle Mospens)

As a wedding+event planner, I often turn into the go-to gal for etiquette info with friends and family. Over the holiday, one of my relatives brought out a wedding invitation she recently received and as it got passed around it became a topic of debate, until it finally made it into my hands for a final verdict.

The scenario: The very lovely invitation included not one, not two, but three registry cards from various retailers. One was even nice enough to include a coupon.  The question that arose—is this acceptable?

The verdict: Absolutely not. You should never include any mention of gifts in your wedding invitations. This is acceptable in shower invitations, but not in the actual wedding invites. You can also include this information on a wedding website!
