b53191:  You don’t need to say anything.  It’s impolite to put any sort of registry information with the invitation.  It implies that you expect gifts. But if you have a registry, put it on your website – that’s fine.  Spread through word of mouth that people can have any boxed gifts delivered to your house but honestly, most people will give cash/cheques.

I wouldn’t put anything about gifts on the invite. People will probably just give a check.

As PP’s have said don’t mention it on your invite. If someone asks directly for your registry details just let them know that you haven’t registered and that their presence is present enough.

I was kind of wondering the same thing. But I want to say it on my invite…. what are you going to do?
