Instead, Prince Harry and royal-to-be Meghan Markle have asked for donations to charities near and dear to their hearts. The couple, who will wed May 19 in Windsor, have chosen seven organizations.
"Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle are incredibly grateful for the goodwill shown to them since the announcement of their engagement and are keen that as many people as possible benefit from this generosity of spirit," reads an announcement from Kensington Palace.
Here's a look at each of the charities:
Chiva, or Children's HIV Association, supports kids who are growing up with an HIV diagnosis, teaching them and their families to live up to their potential.
The charities include @chivaprojects, which supports children growing up with HIV and their families. The charity helps to create a more hopeful and optimistic future for them, ensuring they achieve their greatest potential. https://t.co/W3AQovuL2H pic.twitter.com/BvnZjmzPOl— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) April 9, 2018
Crises works with those who have recently been homeless, aiming to help individuals rebuild their lives and to eradicate homelessness for good.
.@crisis_uk has also been chosen by the couple.

Myna Mahila Foundation
The Myna Mahila Foundation employs women from the slums of India to make sanitary pads in an effort to make them more accessible. The foundation is also working to change the taboo around menstruation in parts of the world where girls drop out of school after getting their periods.
"Young girls' potential is being squandered because we are too shy to talk about the most natural thing in the world," Markle wrote last year about the need for organization's work.
Next up is @MynaMahila, which empowers women in Mumbai's slums by providing them with a trusted network, stable employment & the chance to grow as individuals & businesswomen, and breaks taboos around menstrual hygiene. https://t.co/suzul1y9cw pic.twitter.com/eIG3GP6bW7— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) April 9, 2018
Scotty's Little Soldiers
Scotty's Little Soldiers works to provide support to children whose parents were service members that were killed in action.
The couple have also chosen @CorporalScotty, a charity that offers vital support and activities to children who have lost a parent while serving in the British Armed Forces, helping them to smile again. https://t.co/23tYNy7rSC pic.twitter.com/G6CISr2TvU— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) April 9, 2018
Street Games works to bring sports to disadvantaged communities.
Also selected is @StreetGames, a charity which uses sport to empower young people to kick-start a cycle of positive change in their own lives.
