Response: Hello Veronica, Congratulations on your move. You will enjoy living in Germany. To answer your question, it is a major social blunder to mention gifts in any way in a wedding invitation. That includes inserting registry information. The way to make your wishes known is to not register, then tell your parents and members of the wedding party that you are unable to accept gifts and would prefer to receive money. They can then spread the word, as can you when asked. If you have a wedding web site, which can be created for free on theknot.com and weddingchannel.com, you can include the information there, then invite guests to visit the web site.
You may want to be careful about asking for gift cards unless you are certain they can be redeemed in Germany shortly after receiving them. In the current economy with stores and banks closing, you could be left with cards you cant redeem.
