Q: My fiance and I are getting married and I need a little advice. Being that we already are living together, we do not need any gifts. we have already paid for our honeymoon completely. Instead of the gift/bridal registry as the norm, we wanted to include that monetary gifts would be the preference for us. How should this be worded?
A: You may not ask for money in writing on your invitation. You can, however, use the word-of-mouth system for letting people know your preference. Tell you parents, attendants and a few close relatives that if anyone asks them, they may tell them that your most appreciated gift would be money. You may also say that to people who ask you directly.
