"Asking" for gifts in regards to your wedding can be a tricky, but maneuverable situation. First of all, you should never, ever mention gifts or anything related to them on your invitations. That's the biggest no-no. Most wedding-goers will balk at the idea that you expect gifts. In smaller towns, stores might publish in the local newspaper a list of names of couples who've registered for their wedding. That's one great way to get the word out. However, with the advent of the internet, many larger stores have registry lists online, making it even easier for your guests to get you just the right thing. As always, the best way to get the word out as to where you've registered or what you need in terms of household starters is by using good, old-fashioned word-of-mouth. Enlist the help of your close family and friends to be the ones to mention where gift-shoppers can go to get you just what you want for your wedding.

Now that the wedding is called off and if you received 'gag gifts' it is not necessary to return those gifts, but if you were given gifts such as a watch or something else then you should give the gifts back to the people who gave them to you (most of your friends would probably want you to keep the gifts anyway.)

People that ask for wedding gifts?

If people you know are asking what you would like as a wedding gift then in your wedding invitations it is acceptable to put the list of bridal registries at different stores so your guests will know what you and your husband to be would like and not duplicate a gift. People who are getting married shouldn't readily tell others what they want as a wedding gift as it's poor etiquette.

How do you politely notify people you do not want gifts for your wedding?

It is considered rude to mention gifts at all (a desire for them OR for none) in invitations (wedding or shower) or "save the date" cards.

What you do write for reply against gift recieveing?

It is inappropriate to make any mention of gifts on an invitation, even to say you don't want them. If you don't want gifts, don't register (if it is a wedding) and spread the word that you don't want gifts. Should anyone ask what you'd like, simply say that you don't need anything. However, some people like giving gifts, and will insist, no matter what you do. In that case, the only polite thing is to graciously accept.
