I'm getting married this summer, and between the two of us we already have everything and more than we need in our home. So when it comes to wedding gifts we don't really need anything. (Other than a little extra cash!) Where should I register and what for? My parents, friends, and family all want to get us stuff, but we don't know what we need. Help!

Request that a donation to a worthy charity be made in honor of your marriage.

My daughter's friend had a "gift card shower". They really racked up getting over $1,000 in gift cards!

How about telling everyone to take the amount that they would have spent on your wedding and gifting themselves/their own union with it. "And, in the end, the love you take/ Is equal to the love you make."

The charitable donation is a good idea. I think you have to give people *some* outlet for their gift-giving urges in a situation like this.


When I got married 3 years ago, my husband and I tried to go the "no-gifts-please" route; we even eloped and had no celebration of any kind. But we did send announcement postcards afterward, which triggered the inevitable "shower" of unasked-for gifts. We nearly broke our hands writing thank-you notes (which had been one reason we did everything so low-key and told people "no gifts"). On the positive side, though, we got enough money to almost cover our wedding trip!
