Oh no…another “how to ask for money” post.  Personally, I don’t think there is a classy way to ask for money.  I tend to cringe at “Monetary gifts appreciated” in the invitation. Your call…but I would just spread your request by word of mouth through your parents/bridal party.

The most “tactful” way is for Future Mother-In-Law to spread the word to her side of the family that you will be moving and small gifts or cash is best. 

Its not unreasonable to rebuy the gifts (other than a lot of work and if the stores will allow it), but maybe you could designate one spot to accumulate the presents such as the last place you will end up. Since you know you are moving 3 times I am assuming you know going. Is someone there that can receive your gifts and hold on to them?
