So we created a PayPal donation button and are asking people who insist on gifts to help us help our loved ones who can't quite afford to join us. Here's the wording from our website:
We do not wish to receive gifts, your presence at our wedding is our present!
We've been told, however, that some people will run out and buy us something anyway. If you are in this camp, instead please consider donating to our scholarship fund for guests we'd love to have, but who can't quite afford to attend. Nothing could be more personal than the gift of allowing someone we love to share our wedding with us.
