@Candace From BC: I don’t understand what the question is?  You just don’t mention it.  If anyone asks you, you can tell them that you just want to celelbrate with them.  If they insist you can direct them to something you would really like.

The destination wedding part doesn’t really factor in.  You would do this regardless of wedding locale.

I’m having a Destination Wedding and we told all of our guests that their presence was their gift and we did not want anything from them.

I have only seen wishing wells at showers within a certain region. Is where there is a basket where people put small gifts in it (like spices, or kitchen utensils etc)

 

So I am not sure if a wishing well is the same thing or not. If you dont have one and they bring a gift, they will take it back with them. No harm no foul. If you have one and they didnt bring a gift, they will feel bad. Skip it.

You can still register for things you want/need. There will be invited guests who are unable to attend who do want to give you something.

I’m not sure what you mean by a wishing well. I thought that was a decoration at a shower.

@Candace From BC: a cardbox? People still might bring cards to the wedding.
