My fiance and I are moving to Taiwan after the wedding, where my fiance intends to get his PhD, so we faced the same issue of not wanting to accumulate a bunch of stuff. I ran the poem idea by my fiance, but he thought even that was too tacky. So we've just left it on good faith. We haven't registered anywhere, and those who ask about a registery, we just politely explain that we will be moving overseas and thus unable to take things with us, so we haven't registered. People seem to get the hint.

That is so thoughtful of you!! I'm sure that your guests appreciate that you did this.

I think you should buy a blender, take it out of the box and wrap it up as the gift
LOL.....I wouldn't do that...but....others might not let them off of the hook so easily. My mother always says...if they knew better...they would do better.
BTW...I thought that it was indeed bad etiquette to place the registry info in the invite.....glad that you confirmed that. Truthfully...I do not mind that so much since I like being able to purchase something for the shower off of the registry.
