views on gift lists

I just wanted to get peoples views on guest lists. I do not like the idea for my wedding as I do not want them to think i just want gifts but Iam thinking of doing one as saying they do not have to bit it's a idea. We be just moving in together so we will need some stuff. What do you think?

    We have a gift list for our honeymoon.

    I totally understand what you mean about it appearing to guests that you are expecting gifts, but most people will probably want to buy you something - after all, you are paying to host them for the day! I would never go to a wedding and not buy the couple something! A gift list is a great way to direct people towards items you would prefer for them to contribute towards, rather than just spending their money on something you may not want or need.

    We got little cards to pop in with our invites that explained to our guests how they could contribute if they wanted to.
