I understood.

The wording was better than what I can remember


*I received an invitation like that. The bastards didnt send a thank you card.

*I do not like invitations like that. I prefer that the person/couple just says 'no gifts, your gift is your attendance' and the people that want to give cash will give cash regardless.

they didn't out right say that wanted cash...but when you don't register ANYwhere....that's exactly what it implied. LOL

I think it would be better to ask for gift cards only or do like my brother's friend did and have ppl pay for different parts of their honeymoon. 


yep that is normally what no registry means


by the way this is for a birthday party, not a wedding, graduation, or baby shower

I'm all for it with weddings. 
Your presence is the greatest present.. BUT if you just have to give.. give me $$. LOL
 
My sister is getting married and they do not need anything.
Gift registries are for those that need the items/ starting new etc..
 
Now for Birthdays.. I think thats tacky.
Even asking for gifts after a certain age is tacky to me when it comes to birthdays.

Yes, most people will give when you say it like that.

I also think some people want cash because most people really don't know what "cover your plate" means nor they very intend on doing with a gift equivalent to it. People love coming to events uninvited. My cousin came to my mother's 60th bday party with a PLUS !in SEVEN.!!!!! Other family member brought people I didnt even know I was related to.... We ran out of food. It was a catered event that was NOT buffet. 

Sorry for the rant....that ish was 2 years ago and it still makes me hot.

SL why do i remember you making a thread like this before? One in which glamrock was against the whole thing, i believe? It was re: weddings and i remember one funny story where the couple had champagne demands and ginger ale pockets. Clearly I've been here too long?Embarrassed

Ive never received an invite like that. But it is commonplace at weddings/baby showers to see an insert from the bank or building society with account info etc etc. in the invitation OR via text msg (baby shower) and it makes sense to me esp with the jacked up prices out here. Let's say they register for crocker which costs $300 USD if it were bought in the states it would be $100-$175 USD better i give them that $300 and it pay for a month's rent or car loan payment/towards kid's college fund.

I agree...if you working paying bills and ish... there is really no need for gifts from anyone.

people don't understand the cost and how catered events are run

I had people not show up for my wedding and say they would cover their plate

I really doubt they would have paid what their plates were....come to think of it they never even sent a gift

My friend is getting married next month.  Her invite said something along the lines of, "The couple would appreciate monetary gifts".  They aren't even registered anywhere.  So give them money, or nothing at all.  I ain't mad at it.  You already have a home together where the two of you consolidated what you each had on your own--how many toasters do you need?

ETA:  For a birthday party?  Call me what you want to, but I rarely, if ever bring a gift to a party, particularly if it's at a club/restaurant/something.  Maybe it's just me, but after a certain age, I stopped expecting birthday gifts from anyone besides my parents and s/o.

been on here for almost 10 years, so it is possible I have made this thread and I am sure I have participated in one like this before

I never heard of anyone doing this for a birthday party though
