Need help with wording re:guests not having to bring gift to the dest wedding but we will accept them? haha

Recommended Posts

hello brides,

i'm having trouble with wording for my website. i want to let guests know that are coming to the wedding that they don't need to bring a gift since they are already spending so much to come. however, for the other people who can't make it and friends/family who want to get us something, i need to put the registry up. any suggestions on how to explain this situation? Thanks!!!

This is what I said on our website:  Where are we registered?  We are not. Your gift to us is your presence, whether in person or in spirit.  We understand that not everyone will be able to make it to Exuma to celebrate at the wedding with us.  We have invited you because it is important to us that we have your love, support and happiness as we begin our journey together as husband and wife.

 

I know this isn't exactly what you're looking for, but hopefully this helps a little.

I am wondering the same thing. We don't want people to bring gifts to Mexico, like you said them being there is enough, but we are also having an AHR and two bridal showers for me, and we wanted to register for that..and if anyone wanted to get us a wedding gift that isn't coming to Mexico;).

 

I have seen people put something like "your presence is a gift enough, however if you feel inclined to congratulate us with a gift, we have provided the following registries for your convenience". This is a hard one!

Got this from another bride. Think it works well!

 

Please know that gifts are not expected, needed, nor required.  Your presence at our ceremony and celebration is the best gift that we could ever ask for!

However, to make things easier, we have registered at the following stores since we have had a few inquiries.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
