after a lot of deliberation I didnt want to fill my invites with gift list or poems about giving money so I didn’t mention anything. Afterwards we have subsequently decided to start a gift list with lical department stores. They will be sending out little caRds. We with ought we would make yhiese available on request and perhaps give them to close familiy only.
Do any other bees out there have a similar experience if this? I am a uk bride and our wedding is in July.

I don’t have exactly the same experience, but I did recently make a gift list– only b/c several people asked for one. But I’m in the Czech Republic, where they don’t really do lists. I had to do Amazon.uk, which won’t really help my US friends. I figured at least it will give people who really want ideas somethng to work from. But I find the whole thing very awkward, lol.

I didn’t put anything about gifts on my invitations, because here in the US, it’s super rude and gift grabby to do that. If you have a bridal shower, the hostess should inform guests where you are registered, if they ask. There is no need to send out cards telling people where to buy your gift. If they opt to ask you where you’re registered, that’s fine, but sending a card out after your invitation that says, “Oh, by the way, we registered at …” looks incredibly rude to me.

Don’t send out cards. If someone wants to buy a gift they will ask where you are registered or they will search your names online.

My FI and I are very established and don’t need anything. So we put this on the bottom of our invites…
“Your presence with us on this day is the present we hope for”
