Very common in the UK too. I really don’t like twee poems asking for money though. I’ve found this wording on the Internet and if we don’t have a gift list, I’ll amend it to use:

As you all know we have lived together for many, many years now and so have all the possessions (kitchenware, bedding etc) that we can make good use of. Therefore, we are not intending to produce a gift list.

The one thing which we are working to save towards is a memorable honeymoon, so if you did wish to make a small contribution to that fund then we would be very appreciative.

Ultimately, just attending our wedding is an expense for everyone who is travelling from far and wide and so we really do only wish for you to join with us and share our special day.

It sounds like you would like money towards purchasing your marital home so you would have to alter it accordingly.
