    I think they are growing in popularity and I understand that you have a lot of stuff already so just go ahead and make both! I’m sure some people will get the point of it and contribute 🙂

    Honestly, I don’t care for the idea because it is essentially registering for money. Many of the honeymoon registeries charge a fee per guest gift, so you are not even receiving the full amount. Also, from what I understand, you don’t actually “get” the things that they gift you (like a dinner on the beach, for example), you get a lump sum of money, minus what the company takes out. I find it “tacky” because in my opinion, it is deceitful to the guests. Every site may be different, this is just my experience when looking into it and something to think about if you do go this route. 

    I do understand where you are coming from. We have lived together for over a year and have everything that we need, plus our apartment is TINY and don’t have room for a lot of stuff. We are having a small registry to upgrade some things, but our guests know our situation. If they feel generous and want to give cash, they can do so without a registry.

    My fiance and I are in the same boat- but I have always heard that if you don’t register then you will get a bunch of things that you really don’t need. We decided to let people know of 2 charities that we spport and would love for donations to go to. then we registered at Target for a handful of things at different prices if people really want to buy us stuff. We explained this all on our website so hopefully  people look at it! 🙂 the honeymoon fund sounds like a nice idea- I am not sure how well they work. But still register for a small amount of things to help your mom out. Good luck.
