  • ooo...i'd be careful b/c people may construe that as you inadvertently telling them to get you a gift.  I'm not sure how you would phrase it on a card for that very reason.  You may end-up getting mocked.  Why include registry if you don't want them to buy you anything.  If they want to buy you something in spite of that, then they should just go ahead and pick whatever they want.  I really would refrain form including registry info if you

  • your presence is present enough

     

     do not include registry information, let it spread by word of mouth

  • if you do not want people to feel obligated to buy you gifts, DO NOT put registry info on the invite.  If they want to know if you're regiestered, they will ask.
  • I think people will buy you a gift anyway. Unless you tell them not too. But I've found that very few people buy registered gifts. Only one person bought something from our registry at our baby shower. The rest were handmade items and cute clothes. But I'm not complaining. We loved everything.
