The problem with saying "no gifts" on the invitation is that some people will automatically assume that's your way of asking for cash instead.  We're getting around that by not mentioning anything regarding gifts on our invitation... and on our website where we can be a bit more wordy, we've included a little note asking for no gifts, that the time & money involved in coming to our wedding is more than enough, blah blah

Another way to go is to not include anything about gifts,registries, etc.  And when people start to ask have your bridal party/family inform them that you do not want people to buy you a gift.

I don't think it's in poor taste at all! We do not want gifts either, and just didn't mention them on the invitation or save the date except to say "your preseence is your gift to us, whether in person or in spirit" or something like that. If some asks if we are registered, I just tell them we are not registered and their love and support is all we need!

 

I did ask my mom to put on my bridal shower invites something about no gifts though. I didn't really want a shower in the first place, so I wanted it to be clear that I do not want gifts. Although I'm sure some people won't listen but there's nothing I can do about that!

 

What did you decide Brenners??

We're planning on mailing something to only the guests who will be attending our DW a few weeks in advance (travel info, perhaps a luggage tag?). I think we might put something in this info just for the people who are attending that their presence at the wedding is the best gift we could receive. Will have to play around with the wording though to get it just right.

 

I wouldn't personally put anything about gifts on the invitation themselves. Perhaps if you have a wedding website you could put it on there though?

I agree, I don't think it's rude to ask for no gifts, but I would put it on your website, or even a shower invitation, but it might look a little tacky to put it on the actual wedding invite. With that being said, I hate all these silly rules about how things should be worded, what's considered rude or tacky, wedding etiquette is overwhelming and frustrating and times!

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
