You don’t mention gifts on the invitation, I would just have  your mom and the bridal party spread the word.

Or you could put a card in for your bridal shower saying gift cards are appreciated, and the word could spread that way….

I agree with other bees about not mentioning it on invitations and just letting the word spread through the grapevine before the shower.

Also, if you don’t make a registry, you’re likely to just get cash. I’ve heard some horror stories about bees and others getting gift cards with numbers that had been stolen so when they went to purchase items the cards were down to nothing! Maybe cash isn’t all that bad.

I don’t think you should mention gifts on your weddiing invitations.  However, I think it should be mentioned on shower invites.  Ours stated, “the couple is registered at Crate & Barrel and Macys.  they would also appreciate gift cards to Home Depot and Lowes”.  We got a ton of those GCs for shower and wedding presents.  I think everyone sent their husbands out to get them.

You can’t word asking for gifts of any kind nicely.  Just don’t register and most guests will take the hint and give you money or gift cards.  Yes, you will probably get something weird from someone but most people get that no registry=money/gift cards.
