I feel like that is simple enough. 🙂 But if I were going to your wedding, I would def still bring something.. even if its just a gift card!

I tried what you are doing and it did not work out.  People called me and said either I register or they buy me what they want.  I also go calls saying it was outright rude of us not to let our guest buy us gifts.  I finally caved when some guest bought some very expensive gifts that I would never use.   I hate returning things so we registered at Bed Bath and Beyond for inexpensive things that I would use (nothing over $80).  We have been recieving gift and one person bought 15 items off our list!!  I still feel that them coming and sharing our day is gift enough but in the end I caved.  I hope it goes better for you.

Maybe you could add something like. “If you’d really love to express your joy for us, please make a donation in our name with [your favorite charity]”

Hmmm….what if you made no mention of gifts at all and, if people ask you, tell them what you would have put on the website?  I think what you have is coolio, but if I saw that on a website, I would probably call you or your mom and ask what you’d really like/need.  You might be setting yourself up for answering a lot of questions.

I can understand not registring and your reasoning behind it…it was probably the worst part (for a variety of reasons) of wedding planning for me.
