I’m not creative at all, so here’s a suggestion, but my point is more to bump for the morning bees who are much more creative than me! 🙂

As we build our own family, we’d love to add in some of yours –
Please share with us one of your favorite family recipe!

I love this idea! Technically it’s not good etiquette to mention gifts in invitations, even if you are telling them not to bring you one, because then it’s implied that you assumed they WERE going to bring you one, when really the giving if a gift or not is entirely the guests choice.

That said, etiquette is stupid and if you want my nan’s chocolate fudge pudding recipe instead of a toaster then I’ll keep my wallet in my pocket and be happy.

How about something like this,

Bride and Groom have everything they need for their home, but what they would love is a special recipe to cook and enjoy together as husband and wife. If you have a fantastic sponge recipe or make a mean Thai laksa, please share it on this card and bring it along to the wedding.

Ok, so I stuck at wording too. How formal do you want it to be? I think the wording will depend on the ‘feel’ of your wedding.

Ok, so Abbie’s wording is roughly a billion times better than my suggestion, lol.
