Wording for Wedding Gifts

United in Love InvitationA common inquiry related to wedding invitations is about how to include wording for wedding gifts.  This may mean providing information about your gift registry or maybe requesting only monetary gifts.  As tempting as it may be, it is not proper etiquette to include this information within your wedding invitation wording.  It tends to imply that you are expecting a gift.  Word of mouth is the best way to spread these details.

Many of your guests may already know at which stores you are registered from your bridal shower invitations.  If they are still looking to find out about any registries you have, they can contact you directly or your parents.

Another option is to have a personal wedding website and include that information on an insert with your invitation.  On your website, guests can find all kinds of information – the story of you and your fiance, who’s in your wedding party, directions to the wedding venue, hotel information if necessary for out-of-town guests, where you are registered, etc.
