Most 50 yr. anniv. you state on the invitation that your presence is your gift. But most people will bring something small or dinner gift cards. For my aunt and uncle's 50th my sister painted their house, it was beautiful. I gave them a card with a story of back when. She was soo touched she looked at me with thanks and a tear in her eye. I have money that I could have bought her a gift but that was the best gift I could have given.
I think it would be tacky to register, but only my opinion. If my parents would have made it to 50 we would have asked for everyone to bring on a note card a special story that they remembered about Mom and Dad. If Dad is still with us on their 50th I am thinking of getting ahold of everyone and asking them to send him a card with their special story on it.
