You can “Hide” that page if you would like so that there isn’t even a visible Registry tab… but you might get more people asking/searching for where you are registered that way.

I would just make that tab hidden in your case. I think not registering speaks for itself and for the couple people who do ask just tell them you aren’t registered.

I know some couples who have done this on the registry section of their website – it makes a lot of sense, since that is where people will look to see if you are registered.

Some ideas:

<div>Here is the list of text and wording samples you might find useful (disclaimer: I found these online haha):</div>

  • Gift us only with the honour of your presence.
  • Your presence is the best gift we can hope to receive.
  • Please, no gifts. Your presence is a present to us.
  • No presents please, just your presence.
  • Please bring only your company and your appetite.
  • Your presence at the celebration is enough of a present.
  • Your presence is the only present desired.
  • Your loving presence in our lives is a gift…we request no other.
  • Your presence is the best gift you could give us.
  • No presents please, just your loving presence.
  • Your good wishes are the only gifts that we wish to receive.
  • The presence of our family and friends will do, and make our day special too.

My thoughts: Maybe leave it off with a “we cannot wait to celebrate with you” or “we so appreciate your desire to celebrate with us!”
