How to say no gifts?

While doing invitations I was thinking how do I properly state that they won’t be expecting gifts but will be accepting cards?

    Found this online :

    We're so lucky to be able to spend our wedding day with all of our friends and family; your presence is truly all the present we need. Because we [have all the basic household supplies covered/have a ridiculously tiny apartment] if you'd like to get us a gift to celebrate, we've created a registry fund that we'll use to [enjoy our honeymoon/save for a down payment/furnish our home together]."

    But just a thought it doesn’t need to go on the invite. Most people give cash anyways and you can just spread the word within your family so they can inform anyone who asks about a registry.

    For my wedding we didn't state this on the invitations or anything but we also had our wedding out of the city so it was kind of a "no-duh" since we clearly wouldn't have room to accept them. If anything I would just post it on a wedding website if you still have a registry explaining that if they insist on a physical gift for the wedding to send it to your home address.

    Just don’t have a registry and people will get the message that you don’t need/want boxed gifts

    I didn’t write anything! No registry, and no mention of gifts.

    I agree with Vinod! “No Boxed Gifts” is generally used.


    We left our invites blank as we don’t have a registry so people will get the hint!

    No Boxed Gifts is a general way to let your guests know. Another phrase used is Monetary Gifts.
