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

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.

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