Help with writing about our registry

    You can't tell you people to give you cash.  It's just rude.  What you can do is not register anywhere and have your WP and parents tell guests WHEN ASKED that you are saving up for home improvement project/honeymoon/new car/etc.

    I agree, you can't ask for cash.  Have a small registry for those that would really like to get a you a gift, and when asked, your closest WP members can let folks know you're saving for.....

    Horrible idea to include any kind of poem, rhyme or "word savy" ways of asking your guests for cash.  This is incredibly rude, no matter how you word it.  That's probably why you are having trouble wording it. 

    Just don't have a registry and people will figure it out.

    Basically, I dont want any gifts, but some people are going to want to give us something, Im good with none and have no intention on asking for money, just a way to get that said. Its a destination wedding and dont want people to feel obligated to give us something. We are not going to register any where, but my family members said that people will still bring gifts to vegas regardless if we register anywhere. Which is kind of them, but I cant bring everything on a plane. So Im just wondering how to say Dont bother with gifts, you coming is a gift. you know?

    You can't say that, not as a preemptive statement at least. You could only say that if someone asks you or your wedding party directly. Sorry. I understand your intentions but mentioning to your guests gifts anywhere in an invite, save the date, basically anything besides a direct query - even to say that they're not necessary - is improper.

    To me putting registry cards in the invite is rude. But you dont know my family, the wont get the hint.
