Sounds as though you’re going about it in the right way – you have registries, people will have the option to get you actual gifts, but you’re not registering for things you don’t need. If someone looks on your registries and doesn’t see something they’re interested in giving you, they’ll likely go for the gift card.

You can also try to get the word out through family and friends that cash and gift cards are fine with you.

@Plantation:  We bought a “fixer upper” so we would really like cash to go towards the home. We tactfully stated that on our wedding website. I also am going to put it in the invitations with the other registries.

I would heavily advise you to not mention anything to do with your gift preferences in your actual wedding invitations (and that includes actually listing your registries in your invitations). Save it for your wedding website, bridal shower invitations, and word of mouth.

In general, I think a lot of brides worry too much that if they don’t register for specific items that their guests will just start purchasing tons of unnecessary gifts. Have a bit more faith in your guests… they know what they’re doing! Most of them will realize that you probably don’t need a ton of housewares right now and will opt for a gift card/$$$.

Don’t sweat it!
