If this is the norm where you come from, is it necessary to put the info on the invitation?  

I personally would leave off any mention of gifts at all. Most people say it is ok to put registry info on them though. I’m just a weirdo like that though.

@Imean:  Ahh, I see. Thank you for clarifying since this is not something I’d heard of. 

Perhaps something along the lines of “A contribution for a group gift would be welcomed/appreciated.” or something along those lines. Then the gift giver could decide what amount to give.  Or if it is custom to list a suggested dollar amount put that in. 

I find this concept interesting. It seems great to pool resources to get larger gifts for the bride to be, especially if there is something large you really want, like pots and pans, knives, or a stand mixer. 

Happy planning!

Oh interesting! Can you talk to your relatives and see how it is usually worded?

@Imean:  As others have said, if it’s the norm there should already be an established way of getting the point across. Ask your aunts! They probably know.

@Imean:  Well what’s it in Spanish? Will it not translate? If you want to post it I can try to translate the idea, rather than the direct translation.
