Is it in poor taste to put in the invitations that you do not want gifts? We have most things we would want and feel that if anyone wants to do something for us, they could give to a favorite charity instead. Also, with people paying to attend the DW, we feel that it would really be asking for too much to expect any gifts. Any advice?confused.gif

I think it's perfectly okay to mention that you do not want gifts on your invitation.. You could write something like "Your presence at our wedding is the only gift we hope to receive from you.." etc If people still want to give you a gift then they'll ask and you can direct them to your fave charity :)

I agree with Meghan, doesn't matter what you write, people will do what they want in the end anyway! :)

 

I dont think it is rude at all after all people are paying just to go to our weddings!

We didn't put it on the invitation but spread the word verbally through friends and family. We have everything we need and everyone is already spending enough to come to our wedding.

We decided that we do not need or want anything and that our guests presence is enough. We used the line 'your presence is our gift' in both the save the dates and the invitation. We are having a reception when we return and on those invitations we have provided charity options if people feel compelled to give a gift.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
