Hi yall like the title says I wasn't sure if I need my sign to say cards & gifts or just cards since we're not registering for anything. I thought just "cards" would suffice right next to our card box.

    We just had our card box out. No sign next to it saying cards.

    Mine will just say cards but all the venues I toured told me that people will still bring gifts even if you say no gifts so make sure there is a table just in case.

    Hi,

    I'm doing gifts and cards on ours. We didn't register either but usually some guests prefer to bring you something.

    Is going to be at lease one or two.

    Okay thanks! I'll probably have the card box in the middle of a rectangular table and then if someone brings a gift it can go on either side

    We didn’t have a sign but we had a table with plenty of room and a card box.
    Our guests were so much more generous than we anticipated, we did have a registry but just 1 guest bought from there. I’d make sure there was enough space. I think we had a 5 foot rectangular table and that was plenty.

    Tina’s right. At our local reception, of the people who gave us something (1/2 did cash via a card or Honeyfund) about 1/2 gave gifts (some off registries, some not).

    We had no registry either. We just had a basket out for cards, no signs.

    I agree with this!!! At events and weddings that I've been to, having a table is very useful!

    People will more than likely bring cards/gifts no matter how many times you tell them not to.
