Kudos to all of you ladies who will make the Charity donations or who don't want gifts. We are the other hand are welcome to the gifts/moneyâ€¦
I have talked till I was blue in the face about this topic with my friends and family. Consensus from them is, donâ€™t write that on the invitations. If people want to give you a gift they may feel itâ€™s impolite to state that for everyone to see 'to not give a gift'. After all it is still a wedding, your wedding.
I am asking for people is to come on Saturday night for the wedding. The rest of the time is on them, itâ€™s their vacation, no mandatory events. Just as you would go to a wedding and give a gift, itâ€™s accepted to give a gift at a destination wedding. People are coming because they want to share this time with you, people also donâ€™t want to be told to give a gift or not. JMO!
I was very adamant about not receiving gifts and my bridal party and immediate family, was offended. I was confused at first until I heard their opinions. All in all, I have been to theirs and given $300 and up. So now they go on a mini-vacation, see a loved one most important day of their lives (that's me) and give maybe $100 instead. I can honestly tell you that I am DEFINITELY not expecting gifts...but I DEFINITELY won't turn them away.

ITS BETTER TO REGISTER AND GET THE ITEMS YOU LIKE VERSUS GETTING RANDOM STUFF THAT YOU WILL NEVER USE AND HAVE TO TRY TO RETURN.

I think you are just fine and not rude at all to let your guest know you don't want anything. Who knows maybe after having to pay for their vacation it might be a little relief!
