I would like to know more about "wishing wells" and how appropriate (or not) they are. My fiance and I already have most smaller appliances and things needed at home, yet we still need major appliances (such as washer/dyer, fridge, etc). We both agree that gifts are not required from our guests, yet realize some might give us things that we might not have a need for; and realized we rather receive cash gifts instead to contribute to aquiring the things we do need but that would be too expensive to list on a registry.
How can we go about conveying the message in a tasteful way that gifts are not required, yet if they would like to give us something, a small cash gift would be much more appreciated?
Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
