Ask The Celebration Advisor: I am giving a bridal luncheon/shower. The invitation only says bridal luncheon. On the enclosure about the bridal registry, can I say "You may choose your shower gift from the bridal registry" and list the bridal registry or just have the bridal registries listed. I think most people know this is also a shower, but I want to make sure and I want to do it properly. Thanks! Anne
The Celebration Advisor:
A bridal luncheon when held in conjunction with a shower must follow the same etiquette as a bridal shower. Etiquette dictates that registry information should be included with the invitation. However, the wedding registry information must NOT be on the invitation itself. It must be on a separate note and inserted in the envelope with the invitation. The best way to accomplish this is a one-sided note card slightly smaller than the bridal luncheon invitation (most invitation suppliers have these coordinating cards).
