Yeah, it’s rude to ask for any gifts I think.  You shouldn’t expect any gifts.  If you don’t want anything for your apartment, don’t register.  Ultimately, people who want to give you an actual gift are going to anyway.

@Rps392:

It’s incredibly rude to ask for monetary gifts. My suggestion is to just not register and hope that your guests get the hint.

I haven’t really seen a tactful way to do this.  as missyjane77 said, maybe just don’t register at a store or find somewhere that lets you return for cash (not sure if that exists).  Or if you are doing a honeymoon, look into a honeymoon registration.  Some people have mixed thoughts on that one but something to look into.

PS:  Just a friendly heads up since you are new but all caps translates to yelling and its also hard to read 🙂

If you don’t want household gifts, don’t register. Some couples are registering at honeymoon registries where people can help with the costs of the honeymoon, or purchase experiences e.g. ziplining  during the honeymoon.

It is not acceptable to put “cash preferred” on the invitations. You will have to depend on your family and close friends to get the word out.

 

ps please don’t use all capital letters in your posts.

One of these is going to be incorporated into our invitations: –

 

For a couple of years we’ve lived in sin
we have a toaster, a kettle and stainless steel bin
Saucepans and towels we have many
Corkscrews and flannels we don’t need any
We just want you with us to celebrate our day
But if you insist on a gift anyway
What we’d really like is the gift of money
We hope you don’t think we are being funny
We will put it together and buy something that’s best
As a reminder of our day and you our wonderful guest

 

We really hope that you can join us on our special day
You make our memories complete in every single way
We do not have a gift list and know you understand
Our house and contents are complete with pots, plates and pans
But should you really want to give and celebrate this way
A gift of money would be lovely for a rainy day

 

Please do not feel obliged to give a gift, its your presence and not
your presents that is important to us

Please take your caps lock off. It hurts the eyes and is considered yelling internet wise

@ksx:  That is hilarious.  I don’t think I’d have the guts to include it (well maybe option 2) but its an interesting approach to keeping the request light and not just a demand for money
