BWAAAHAHAHAH!! I love the advice to take the blender out of the box and wrap it! aaahahahahhahaha, that's priceless. Don't actually do that, it would be a bit spiteful, but frig, I can just see the look on the brides face!!! I'm in stitches here....

This is especially true since there was no registry information included and no website to look at to find out where the couple is registered. I don't know...maybe it's me and this type of wording is perfectly acceptable. LOL
Hey I got a wedding invite in July that said "monetary gifts only" LOL. I guess they didn't beat around the bush like "No boxed gifts"

You could always look at it like this: Gifts can be expensive, depending on what people put on the registry. Some people are reasonable, some have very expensive taste. If you give a check, you can write it for whatever amount you want to give, instead of trying to find a gift in that exact amount.

Oh, yeah, I think they are tacky, but I'd follow their tacky rules to my own advantage and give them whatever I wanted to give, not what they might be expecting.

Wow!!!! This is so incredibly tacky!!!!! Ewwwwww! It is my own personal opinion that if a couple feels compelled to ask for monitary gifts, then they should not be putting on such an elaborate wedding and should keep it simple and within their means. What a horrible idea to even "tell" guests what kind of gifts are acceptable! Although I always give gifts from registries, people should graciously accept whatever their guests can give them. I personally think that reading something like that on an invitation should be the first indication that the entire wedding might be tacky....personal experience!

 

We indicated "no gifts please" on our reply cards, not the invitation itself.

To me...that is the greatest offense. A gift is just that...a gift....
