Plucky Ducky: What is the proper registry gift giving etiquette?
I ordered a gift off a wedding registry that will be sent directly to the bride and groom’s home. Will it suffice to just bring a card to the wedding? Do I need to reference the gift in our card?

You should consider yourself done.
there’s no need to bring a card to the wedding if you have already purchased a registry gift. We are getting married in two weeks and every day we have deliveries from either Macy’s or Bed, Bath and Beyond of wedding gifts. One room of our condo is already filled almost to the ceiling with wedding gifts. I hope those people don’t bring cards to the wedding.Answer by Eve R
If you want to bring a card you can, but if anything it would make it more awkward if people think that the card was your gift.Answer by fizzy stuff
That is one reason I dont like sending the gift directly from the registry. It doesnt allow me to attach a card, or wrap the gift beautifully. But thats just me, I like the presentation.
To answer your question, you do not need to bring a card to the wedding IF you included a note with the gift. Did the website give you the option of attaching a note?Answer by BBG
If you sent a gift you do not need to bring a card to the wedding. It’s redundant. 🙂
In fact, it’s just one more thing that someone has to pack up and take home. Gifts and cards should be sent either before or after the wedding and not taken to the actual ceremony.Answer by Kelly
Bringing a card since you already sent a gift is fine. I’d omit mention of the gift though.Answer by truefirstedition
You’re done. No need to bring a card to the wedding unless you want to.
