Gifts to a DW?

Recommended Posts

So we're planning on having an AHR, which means I will still register somewhere, but I was wondering what you do about gifts from the people that are coming to the DW? Certainly they won't bring presents and expect us to ship them all back, right? I was actually considering putting on the invitation that no gifts are necessary, but how do you do that tactfully? Or do we just assume that the guests know better than to bring a blender all the way to cancun?

I put something like "reception to follow upon return to the states" on the STD, and it will be included on the invite also, and i am just hoping that peeps will bring it there (if at all).

I've been trying to spread the word via my family and BMs that if a guest is coming to Jamaica that I really don't expect a gift. I think they're paying enough already, so I don't want them to give me anything. I was going to put something like "Your presence is present enough" (sorry, I stole that from someone here...) on my website, but haven't yet (need to remember to do that!). For those that still want to give a gift anyway, I'm hoping that they have enough sense to not bring it with them!!!

I have it on my website. I've also been spreading the word to make sure no one brings a gift to mexico. This is what's on my website. maybe I didn't need the part about the pictures, but I REALLY REALLY want everyone to share their pictures. More than any gift they could give me. We are also having AHR's which I guess some people will bring gifts too. I imagine people will mail us some stuff too.

 

Gift Registry

If you are making the trip to Mexico, please do not also give us a gift. Spending your time and money to celebrate with us is the gift. The only thing we want is for you to share your pictures of the wedding & vacation with us.

 

We do not expect gifts from anyone. Your love, support and friendship is all we need. We understand that people may enjoy gift giving so we will do some gift registries to make it easier to pick things out.

I wouldn't mention anything about gifts on your invites. If you have a website, the registry page is a great place to mention you aren't wanting gifts. Have your family spread the word about not bringing gifts to Mexico.

 

Matt said if anyone brings us a gift, we'll be sure to mention that the waiter enjoyed their toast oven.. lol Seriously though, I hope nobody is that inconsiderate.. even gift cards/cash will be tough in Mexico. Things like that could easily be lost or worse, stollen.

I have def thought of this before. My sister is going to spread the word about my registry for the bridal shower. Hopefully most people who gift will do it there if they gift. I can't imagine bringing back all those presents internationally!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
