Invites/ How To Word 'No Gifts Please'
I was planning to put on the back of our invite
"We are not registered. Your presence is present enough."
I really don't want people buying gifts.
I read another discussion on here that said any mention of gifts on a invite is tacky, but that was to someone who wants money. Is it still tacky if I'm saying, we just want you there, not a present?

I don't think it is tacky. We are having a destination wedding and really want to treat all of our guests while they are there. I was going to do something similar as we already have a house full of stuff and really if we need something we would just purchase it ourselves.

Your presence and blessing are grift enough.

Thanks, ours is actually a destination wedding and that's why I really want to make sure people don't worry about a gift or giving money. I appreciate the quick response! I'm going to order my invites now

It is tacky to tell people what to buy you or to only give you cash.. it is NEVER tacky to tell people that gifts are not needed.

We didn't put anything on the invite, but included our website address. On the website if you click registry it states that your presence is our gift.

I don't think it's tacky at all. We are putting 'Your presence is the only gift we desire.'
