You never put anything about registry or money on invitations. The best way to get this out is word of mouth or do a honeymoon registry

iItto...gift info of any kind NEVER goes anywhere near the invite. That would imply that the invite comes with the obligation of bringing a gift. www.thehoneymoon.com is a great way to register for cash or www.ourwishingwell.com. Then you can put registry info on your website or spread through word of mouth. People will usually ASK you or a family member where you're registered. They could direct them to these online cash registries or just tell them you prefer cash

I would never put anything on my invites about my registry... These things are normally spread through word of mouth or through inserts with the bridal party invites...
I think it would be totally tacky if I received an invite that said that the couple only wanted monetary contributions...

I am not really sure how you let people know that... maybe just dont say anything????

You should never put anything about your registry or gifts in your invitations. It's beyond tacky. I'm personally offended if someone has the bad manners to say they'd rather have money. If someone sent me an invitation that said that, I think I'd opt not to get them a gift at all. Think about where you'd be spending that money and figure out some gifts you could ask for. You could always ask for a gift card to a store you frequently shop.

I agree with the other ladies. This day & age it's more "acceptable" to put the "couple is registered at..." cards & word monetary &/or gift cards prefered... it is tacky. What would you think if you got a wedding invitation that said "Come to our wedding and give us money!"
In essence it's exactly that. You can tell your close friends/family & they can spread the word *if asked*... but that is my personal opinion. Sadly, etiquette has gone out the window with very much these days.
