I was wondering if anyone can help me out to word an invitation to tell my guests we don't want money or gifts. We are having a destination wedding in April of 2014 and because the guests are spending money to travel all that way to be a part of our day, we don't want any money or gifts from them. We feel like they would be spending enough anyway. HELP
Wording For Invitations To Tell Guests Not To Give Money Or Gifts

This is what I wrote on my wedding website regarding no gifts. You can add something like this on your invites.
We have not registered for any gifts, instead your gift to us will be attending our special wedding weekend!!
43 guests plus bride and groom....

That sounds good. I have difficulty finding the write words and not say "we don't want your money or gifts." Your's is simple but worded perfectly.

We didn't include anything in our invitation.
We did send out pre-travel communication for all of our guests who were attending.
There was a section called : "What not to pack"
And we wrote: "Gifts! Your presence is our present"

I was going to do the "your presence is our present" thing but when I ran it past the FI, he thought it was offensive to even address gifts on our invite or website and to not bring it up at all. If people ask our family, we are simply having them say we do not want anything, We are leaving it as word of mouth. much like we would do had we chosen to register.

I'm not a fan of including "gift or no gift" information on the invitations. We had a line about "your presence is the only gift we wish to receive" on our website because the website is more informal. For invitations, keep it classy and leave out anything to do with gifts. To me, it sounds presumptuous either way.
