    Thanks for this.  It's very helpful.

    2) Put it on your wedding website. I have had a few friends write on their site (under a link to “gifts”) something to the effect:

    “Your presence at our wedding is the best gift we could receive.  But if we’re honored with a gift from you, a monetary gift or a gift card would help us fill in the missing parts of our life together. If you prefer to give a gift, we have also registered at the following stores…”

    Something to that effect lets your friends and family know your preference but doesn’t sound pushy at all.

    3) Register with a bank. Some banks let you create a registry so that people can give directly to a “wedding fund” or something that you want. In this economy, I wouldn’t recommend that!

    4) Register on the websites where you want the gift cards. Most stores let you register for gift cards… that will definitely make it clear to your guests.

                  Congrats Ladies on becoming aunties!

                  I sure hope I don't become one anytime soon cause my sisters are only 19, 20 and 22 and I better have one before they do! lol

                  side note(I am 36 so there isn't much time left ) and my FFIL just tonight said that the only thing he wishes for is that I announce I am pregrant at our AHR in July!! Oh boy, no pressure right?

                    Thanks Lisa! It was my second nephew and my sis is going to be 34 in Nov. Side note: I am 35 and have no kids, so I'm right there with you :)
