I'm not sure I agree with that. One of my best friends from college was getting married last year. The ceremony was private with only immediate family, but there was a reception that afternoon. In a handwritten note she wrote that at their ages, 58 and 68, there was nothing that they needed or wanted beyond the enjoyment of spending the afternoon entertaining their families and friends; therefore, just bring yourself, your good wishes, and nothing more. That's exactly what everybody did and a great time was had by all. :icon_smile:No gifts means no gifts; however, it is actually in poor form to write on an invitation "no gifts"
