On our invites we simply put:

Your Presence is Your Present


However…some peeps still brought gifts.  We just kindly accepted them and put them and any envelopes in a separate room so other didn’t feel badly.

We got a TON of gifts. I had never been to an engagement party so I didn’t know what happened really, and was surprised that most of our register was bought out. Literally, I had to put more things on the registry so people wouldn’t be mad when it came shower time.

If you don’t want gifts, I would ask people to start telling people (parents, inlaws) by word of mouth.

Some people like to give gifts at engagement parties. It’s fine if you wish to stipulate “no gifts please” by word of mouth. We did that and voila!–we got no gifts 🙂
