So I am telling my guests that I do not want gifts for our wedding...to make the trip to our wedding is quite a big expense and I know that some people are sacrificing a lot to be there. I'm not having a shower, that I know of, but I still find that some people still want to get us something and have been asking us to register.
Here's the thing...we have been together for 9 years this April fools and we have been living together for 8. We have quite enough stuff in our tiny apartment and I can't think of one "thing" that I NEED...don't get me wrong if i had a bigger apartment there would be plenty for me to WANT lol !!
I would prefer if they would gift us an experience like a date night, a membership to art gallery or museum, show tickets...etc. Even Money towards a honeymoon, house down payment ...or towards some debt (more likely lol)
How would you go about telling them this? I know people find it rude to ask for money...but for me regular physical gifts would just be a waste. Any suggestions....what would you do?
