    I am curious to know how many brides are letting their guests know a gift isn't necessary? My parents think that we should be telling people know that we consider their presence at our wedding our gift.
    We are paying extra for our 60 guests to have a special meal at the resort, plus favours, welcome bags, ceremony etc....is it rude to expect gifts?

    Also, how do we let our booked guests know that gifts aren't expected without being awkward?

      Hi Chevy, we included it right on our invitations - "Please, no gifts - your presence is all we need" :)

        There are many that would say that it is inappropriate to talk about gifts in anyway. If you don't want to completely discourage it, I would keep a diplomatic silence about it and not say anything on the invitation/website. If someone asks you, then I would politely say they are not necessary and leave it at that. Your family should say the same thing. Let the guest decide what they want to do..

          ...completely agree with SSNM. I would do the same. I kind of mentioned to a friend of mine about my "no gift" idea and she said she actually wants to get me a gift. She doesn't think it's necessary to mention it to people, unless the non-registry brings up the topic...
