I am working on a invitation design for a wedding anniversary party. The couple has requested that their guests not bring gifts. I searched the internet far and wide to find correct wording for the invite to let guests know that bringing a gift or present is not necessary. Here is the list of text and wording samples that I complied:
- Gift us only with the honor of your presence.
- Your presence is the best gift we can hope to receive.
- Please, no gifts. Your presence is a present to us.
- No presents please, just your presence.
- Please bring only your company and your appetite.
- Your presence at the celebration is enough of a present.
- Your presence is the only present desired.
- Your loving presence in our lives is a gift…we request no other.
- Your presence is the best gift you could give us.
- No presents please, just your loving presence.
- Your good wishes are the only gifts that we wish to receive.
- As appreciated as your gifts may be, they are not needed as you will see.
The presence of our family and friends will do, and make our day special too.
Sayings more specific for Birthday, Anniversary, Etc:
- There is nothing she needs, she has toys galore. The very best present, is you at the door!
- There is nothing he needs, he has toys by the ton. The very best present, is you having fun!
- After 50 years, we need nothing more. The very best present, is you on the dance floor!
Whether it be for a birthday party, wedding, anniversary or any other celebration – if you are requesting that your guests not bring gifts, I hope one of these wording suggestions will work for your invitations. 🙂
