Hey Wedding Bee’s I am newly engaged and new to the site! My fiancé and I will be married in the US where my friends and family live and will be living in Ethiopia where we met and both have jobs.
Since packing, shipping or taking gifst with us in our luggage is going to be a terrible burden or expense I started looking for alternatives to traditional gift registries.
Have any of you used Upon our star? http://www.uponourstar.com/
You register for “wishes” and then get cash at the end of it all. It looks like it could be perfect, but I want to hear anyone’s experience with this site first.
Please let me know!
OR if there are other alternative registries that would be AMAZING!

I just set up my registry there too. I’ve love feedback from anyone who has used it. I tried to Google for any reviews but this is all that came up!

I have friends who used honeyfund – it is advertised as paying for your honeymoon but it goes into a paypal account – they were able to use some for their honeymoon and the rest for other gifts for themselves. My Fiance and I are in a similar situation although not so far…wedding in New Husband and living in TX…and we are going to register for just a few things – but I’m guessing people will give us mostly cash and gift cards to prevent having to ship or take things with us!

I’m registered with Upon Our Star at the moment, so far it’s been great – nice website, easy to set up :*) The wedding isn’t until Jan 2011 but so far so good.

I am using the site (www.uponourstar.com) too!
(I was googling for reviews too!) and so far, I am really happy with feedback from our friends/family… People think it is really a fun idea, since we really tried to mix it with fun “Wishes” as well as practical things we need like paint for our fixer upper!
It was so easy to set up and so much fun to add things I, can’t wait until the wedding is done and I can start using my “wishes!”

We are in the same situation, have not received our funds and it has been more than 14 business days since we did the “collect” process. Emailed repeatedly to ask about it and have not heard back from them.
Did you ever get your funds?
