Proper way of asking for gifts???

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

We would like to have a registry, but are worried that guests will be offended, since they are already paying to travel to our wedding.

 

What is the proper way of asking guests for giftshuh.gif

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

We did register at two places since my coworkers kept bugging me about it. On our webpage, under the registry tab, we put a little note :

 

Because this will be a Destination Wedding, gifts are not necessary. However, we have been getting some requests to register anyway, so we will register at a couple of stores

 

To be honest, I don't think you should expect your guests to buy you gifts on top of already spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on your trip. That being said, you can always just put out a registry anyway (power of suggestion) and say it is for co-workers.

we registered as well, because friends and coworkers (and a few family members, especially those who can't attend the wedding) were harassing us! it is usually considered poor etiquette to say where you're registered on your invites. if anyone is going to throw you a shower it should be listed on your shower invitations tho! we also posted it on our wedding website. this is how we worded it, with a link to our actual registry:

 

The greatest gift we could possibly receive is if you would join us in Mexico. We need nothing other than to be surrounded by our family and friends for our wedding to truly be a "wedding in paradise!" The costs of attending are substantial, and we wouldn't dream of asking anything more. Your "presence" will be our "presents!"

 

That said, some of you are stubborn and will insist on gift-giving ... for you, we have registered at Target.

My maid of honor included registry inserts in my bridal shower invitations. We also included information on our website and made sure to note that our guests' presence at our wedding was the best gift we could ask for.

My friends are inserting a special page along with my shower invite that will say where we are registered and have directions to the shower. I'm not expecting any presents at my DW. =)

I am definitely not expecting any presents for our wedding!! But, like many of you have said...certain people insist anyway. So that being the case, I guess I will need to let people know there is a registry should they feel the need...I just don't want anyone to take it out of context.

Thanks!!!

;o)

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
