Im getting married in August and I am about to send my invites out and need some there a nice/polite way of telling guests that you have a gift list? would rather not put the printed cards in that Debenhams supply, as I dont want guests opening the invite and it falling out first and thinking its cheeky! image

Was going to print something out and insert it into the invites as I have other information about accommodation to include and maybe add something about the list at the bottom of this??

    Oh no, I wrote a really long reply, but it got deleted!!

    I said how about an A-Z? It's been said a million times on here so you may be able to find a few different ones, I'd be happy to post mine if you'd like to see it.

    Brides name and Grooms name will appreciate your presence at their wedding celebration more than your presents. However, if you would like to make a gesture they will have registered a gift list with John Lewis. For details please see accompanying card.

    we didnt like the cards our gift list (honeymoon) company sent either, so we made up a poem, printed our own little cards and popped them in. People have commented that it was a really lovely thing, no-one thinks its cheeky. Remember, that no-one is obliged to buy you a gift and most people know that, no-one will think its cocky hun xx

    thanks lpb, quite like the wording of that and not so worried now.

    Any other tips/suggestions gratefully received!

    We just gave details about where our wedding website was and told guests to check it regularly for updates, maps etc... Our gift list is a page on our website. That way, anyone who is looking for gift ideas can find it, but it doesn't look cheeky at all.
