I actually ended up leaving it out mainly because I forgot to put it there. But anyway it worked out. :)


Thanks girls

It looks like you got your answer but just in case anyone else is searching...we used this on our wedding web site



We made a commitment some time ago

That together through life we were destined to go.

We purchased our furniture, linen and bedding,
in the fulfilling years leading up to our wedding.

We would love a card with your memories and wishes        

easier to take home than toasters and dishes.

But weddings are more than rings and tossed rice
so please feel free to give some advice.

Your words and love are all we could ask  

Our only hope is you´re up to the task.

Write us a story, a poem or a letter                      

your memories and tips are our gift but better!

    This is perfect! After all, it truly is about the memories.


    Thanks for sharing.

    I totally agree with the not saying anything. I would instead put the bug in family's ear that you are requesting no gifts and just have them spread the word when asked. If anyone does ask you directly, then that's when you could say "we very much appreciate that you're going to be joining us in XXX (wherever your wedding is) and that you're spending the money to be with us for this important time in our lives. For that reason, as much as we appreciate you asking, we're asking that no gifts be given".

    I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015
