Including gift registries on wedding invitations is considered unacceptable. To spread the word, give your mothers and maid of honor a list of the stores, mail-order catalogs, Web sites and other places that you are registered to share with guests when they ask for gift ideas. It is also acceptable to list registry information on a wedding Web page or enclose a separate registry card.
