JazzyGirl85:  We did something similar and put a line like that in the invitations. We also made sure to tell our guests, usually when they rsvp’d or just in general conversation that we did not want any gifts, their presence there was gift enough… We still got a few, but nothing crazy!

JazzyGirl85:  I agree with the OP, and the thing with etiquette is do what you think is right. I would rather spell things out then hope that everyone one gets the info by word of mouth. Good luck!
