Proper Etiquette

Postby kjm26 » Tue Jun 16, 2015 9:01 am

Hi Ladies,
I need help with proper etiquette with wording or if i should just eliminate this from the invitation all together.
My SIL is registered at Bed Bath & Beyond & Target which I have zero issue including on the bridal shower invite, but they also want gift cards to Lowe's for improvements they are doing. How would you or would you include this on the invite?
TIA

They do not offer that option. I called our local Lowe's to ask....

Bummer. They must have stopped offering registries...it was paper and pencil. :)

Word of mouth- I don't have an issue with it being on the invite (gift cards to Lowes also appreciated) but I can see some people taking that offensively. So simply mentioning it in passing to those you feel comfortable mentioning it to might be the compromise.

This! I may be old fashioned but it doesn't jive well with me when it's on the invite.

I agree. And every family has the loudmouth aunt/cousin/mother that you could enlist to help you spread the word as well.

My thoughts exactly. :good:

(If they call to RSVP it can be a good time to slip it into conversation.)
