Don’t do anything. When they ask, tell them that. Inform your mother and maid of honour too. Be honest that your needs are monetary right now. The ettequette gods will shun you if you so much as put ANY sort of gift insert inyour invites.

I never knew either! I thought I’d register and print something cute telling them where to go. Apparently its a rule that everyone know except people who are planning weddings.

Don’t say anything. But know that some people will buy you gifts no matter what and you may not like what they get you (I registered and some people still got creative at my shower).

Maybe you could do a honeymoon registry instead??? 🙂

We didn’t register either because we each had our own house before moving in together. When people asked us or our parents, we just said “we have two of everything and we have half the closet space, so we really don’t need anything for the house” 99% of our guests got the hint and gave us cash. We received a few gifts, some we kept and some we returned.

We also didn’t have a shower, which I think is really important in your situation. It’s counterintuitive to say “we don’t need anything so I’m not registering, but I’m having a party thrown to get “showered” with gifts”….

@futuremrshc: I see well no biggie! If your not comfortable with it then I say no need for it! If someone asks you if your doing a registry just say politely no. I’m sure you’ll still get gifts but you wont have to open those infront of anyone so that should still be ok. 🙂

@futuremrshc:I’ve seen invitations that say “your presence is our present” which is a line that basically means “no gifts”, but most people (if they have any sense about them) will still bring you money or a gift, because it’s a celebration and it makes people feel good to give.
