    Hi all - so we are starting to think about our AHR invitations (I know, we haven't even been married yet).

    We're going to have a cocktail celebration in August, 4 hours of hors d'ouevres, alcohol, pictures on display and a cake ... basically a time for us to see everyone who couldn't be at our wedding.

    This is not a second reception or a second wedding.

    However, as it is a wedding celebration people will bring gifts .... right? Are we wrong to think that?

    FI and I have been living together in our new house for over 2 years and we really have everything we need and are not planning on registering at stores for anything. However, we would like our guests to help us fund either our landscaping or our basement renos.

    How can we word it in the invite to suggest that we'd prefer a cash gift without sounding brash or harsh or like we're begging for money?!

    Thanks ladies.
