Just a quick question on advice. I am about to graduate with my Masters degree, but then 40 days later I will be getting married. How do I request no gifts when I put my graduation announcements in the mail since I dont want to look like I am grubbing for money with the wedding so cloase by. I just dont want people to think I am greedy and asking for a gift twice in a few months.
Do I just not say anything and let people do what they want? Or do I type up a little slip and put it each envelope asking for no gifts?

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. 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. 🙂
