Some wording ideas are:

The gift i’d appreciate most is your presence, your presence is your present. please just bring your hugs and kisses.

 

Some games include:

Subcategories

The Gist: A game that puts those vocab skills to  work How to Play: Create a chart by labeling pieces of paper  with the bride’s name written out across the top margin and several categories  down the left side (flowers, cities, restaurants, movies, colors, etc.). Give  each guest five minutes to come up with words that fit each category and start  with the letter’s forming the bride’s name. When time is called, the host calls  out each category and each guest reads off what they wrote. Answers chosen by  more than one guest are disqualified. The guest who has the most unique words  takes the prize.

 

Love Story

 The Gist: It’s like the story-telling version of mad libs. How to Play: Players take turns thinking of lines to add to  a romantic story about the bride and groom (example opener: “Tess and Toby met  at the office”). Pass the sheet around and have each person write a new line,  folding the paper to only reveal the freshest sentence. After everyone has  contributed, the final piece is read aloud to the bride.

 

Two Truths And A Lie

 The Gist: Guests recall their funniest moments with the  bride. How to Play: Each guest introduces herself and  dishes about three experiences she’s had with the bride – one of which isn’t  true. The person who correctly picks out the lie gets points. The best part? The  truths can be wackier than the lies (cue the hilarious story swapping).

 

Etiquette 911

The Gist: Have guests answer extreme (read: hilarious)  wedding etiquette questions. How to Play: Write a wedding  etiquette question on an index card — the more outrageous the scenario, the  better. Think of some nuptial nightmares like: What do you do if the best man  sprays champagne all over the guests? If you accidentally knock into the wedding  cake? If two bridesmaids get into a fight at the altar? If you see the groom’s  aunt stealing items from the bathroom amenity basket? Hand out one etiquette  card to each guest and have her write down an honest response to the situation.  Then, have the bridal party gather all the cards and read the questions and  answers aloud. (Put Auntie in handcuffs, perhaps?)

 

Fill-in-the-Blank Vows

The Gist: Helps the bride and groom write their wedding  vows. How to Play: Tell the group that they’re going to help  the bride write the couple’s wedding vows, but each person only gets to write  one sentence. Start circulating two clipboards, one with the header “I (the  bride’s name) take you (groom’s name) and promise to” and the other with the  reverse. Give each clipboard to one guest and instruct her to write a vow phrase  under the header: “I promise to … not roll my eyes when you yell at sports on  TV”. The first guest must now fold down the first line so that it’s hidden  underneath and pass to the second player to add her sentiment. After both his  and her versions have made it through the group, read the vows aloud for all to  hear.

 

 

I hope this helps 🙂
