Response: The answer to your question depends on where you live. In some areas of the country it is acceptable to say 'No Gifts, Please' or 'Your presence on our special day is all the gift that we ask.' In other areas, saying even that is considered inappropriate since the bride and groom shouldnt mention gifts in their invitation. You know your social circle and your families. If you dont think they would be offended if you mention gifts in the invitation, then go ahead and say 'No gifts' or something similar.
Some couples suggest that in lieu of giving a gift, guests make a donation to a favorite charity. To do that, you would probably need to insert a small card in the invitation to have enough space.
