Help! This is actually my first post on Weddingbee! I need some advice…
My fiance live in Georgia, but our Wedding is going to be in California… we have done a Honeymoon registry, but I know that some people may still want to bring a gift… how do I request no boxed gifts politely otherwise we will have to send all of them back to GA which can be expensive.
How do I say this without sounding snobby especially since this isn’t typical in my culture.
Any help is much appreciated!!! THANK YOU!

You shouldn’t mention anytihng about gifts. I wouldn’t do a registry if I were you, and maybe have your parents spread it via word of mouth? Personally, I wouldn’t ever bring a boxed gift to a Destination Wedding because of the headache for me to get it there AND you to get it home.

Have it passed around by word of mouth.

It’s impolite to mention anything about gifts on a wedding invitation. Most people give money for DWs because they don’t want to haul a gift to the Destination Wedding and therefore they realize you won’t want to haul it back home.

Thanks for the advice! I will go ahead and spread it around by Word of Mouth! 🙂
