I wouldn’t mention gifts at all.  Let people make their own call on gifts.

I would just leave it out because even if you say no gifts, someone will still get you something. 🙂

I’m pretty sure nobody will think you purposely went through grad school and planned a wedding just for gifts.  Wink  You’re making two significantly proud accomplishments, and your friends and family will want to congratulate you for both.

I would just not mention gifts and let people do what they want.

I’m graduating law school two weeks before the wedding.  I don’t think I’m going to send out announcements, just because I got my Bacherlor’s degree 8 years ago, so it just seemed kind of strange for me.

If I were in your shoes though, I wouldn’t worry about specifying no gifts.  I don’t think anyone should feel obligated to get you a gift either way.  And if it’s someone who would get you both a graduation and wedding present, why should that change just because the two events happened within a couple of months?

Same here! I’m getting my master’s in June and getting married in July. I don’t think I’ll be announcing the master’s thing. I’d agree with previous posters that you don’t need to mention it, and then people can choose. 🙂
