You should not include any gift information on your invitation. Your friends and relatives should let everyone know if you have a registry set up. Additionally you can put this information in your bridal shower invitation. It is also considered impolite to request andquot;cash only giftsandquot; and remember you do not have to open any of your gifts at the wedding or reception. If this is not the bride’s first marriage, that is not important, she can still wear white if she wants too, even if she has children. If this is not your first wedding then you shouldn’t have a veil, train or carry orange blossoms as they are a sign of purity. After your first marriage you should be paying for the wedding, not your parents. If you are good friends with your ex and it is fine with your fiance/groom then you can invite your ex-partner.
