Don’t do a poem. It’s the same thing as saying “give us money” just dressed up in an annoying way. Just don’t go there, seriously.

@stephers11:  if you have to put it in a poem – it should probably not be said. Just nix the poem and link a honeymoon registry (some don’t agree with it, but it’s not the worst thkng kn the world)

I’m so glad to read your comments about registries, because in my culture (French speaking Canadian), gift registries are just the most shocking thing for us! Most of my friends who don’t speak English never heard of them, and when I explain what they are, they can’t believe it! My Fiance is English speaking Canadian, but I explained to him that i just can’t bear the idea of having a gift registry, and he is okay with that ๐Ÿ™‚ So we won’t have one.

But it is funny how Americans and English speaking Canadians are offended by the lack of gift registry and how French speaking Canadians are offended by the very idea of a gift registry ๐Ÿ™‚

@stephers11:  a cute poem doesn’t make it any less rude.

@stephers11:  Lol I like it ๐Ÿ™‚ Because of my culture, I don’t particularly like the idea of gift registries or specifications or hints for gifts, but I do understand the logic behind them : if people are going to spend money, they might as well spend it where it is going to be useful! It is a fun way to allude to that.

I agree with most Bees here in saying there is no polite way in saying “cash only.”

However, I have been to one wedding in which the bride and groom added a personal note in the effect of ” The Bride and Groom will be moving soon and have limited space for items.” Thats it. Many people got the hint.

No. Just don’t register and if someone gives you a boxed gift appreciate the thought and kindness that went into that. 


Also, +1000 to julies1949— @stephers11: a “cute” poem is just a corny way of being impolite.

In the city I live in it’s actually not at all rude to put cash only. It’s normal.

But because of this I didn’t question whether or not I should put it and how to word it.

If you’re questioning it that probably means that it’s not a good idea.

@stephers11:  You’re right.  Everyone is different.  But if you must do something so many of us find “ghastly” at least spell offense correctly.  It’s harder to chalk that error up to individuality ๐Ÿ˜‰
