A good idea is to invite guests to pay for their ticket for the reception.
Simply state that Gifts arent required but you would appreciate help with the high cost of the reception ie ticket purchase.
That way, you dont have that cost burden, you don't have the vulgar cash question and your guests dont have the hassle of finding gifts.
You don't even need the hotel etc to sort the tickets - its cheap to get some printed and you can send them out yourself on receipt of payment.
It's also a good way to know how many will be there - like an RSVP
I wouldnt be doing that. If you cant afford a wedding dont get married.

It is actually rude to ask for money or add a gift list inside a wedding invitation. I looked up proper etiquette when I got married.
BUT, if someone asks you what you would like, if you have a gift list... then it is more then okay to ask for money or tell them where you gift list is located.
If I am invited to a wedding where cash is requested or a gift list is inside the invitation I am insulted. And I don't respect their wishes, only because I handmake them a gift instead, as this is what I want to give them. I actually find it offensive that people get married and don't care about the romance or the love of the occasion.
95% of the time my gift is appreciated more then a cash gift would have been anyway.
Oh and what is it with people asking for £50+ gifts on the wedding lists???? Not everyone can afford £50!!!
What supplies do they need?
