You can’t.  It isn’t polite to ask for money.  Just do not have a registry and people will figure it out.

Agreed. There is no polite way.  We were in a similar situation, we each had our own house so we didn’t need anything really, we had no registry.  For the bridal shower MIL put the word out that we were looking to paint the house so people got us GC’s or money.  And all we got at the wedding was money.

Haruyou:  Don’t register. That’s the best you can do. If cash gifts are common in your area (like they are in mine), you’ll likely get $ at your reception. Otherwise, you may get some random assortment of cards, giftcards, random gifts, and cash.

People will figure it out if there is no registry! They’ll give cash, a few people will probably give you gifts, which you can return if they’re really not something you need.

We had it passed around by word of mouth by our parents and MOH. Then we made a very tiny registry for those who would absolutely prefer to give traditional gifts of things we could still use (luggage, a new blender, picture frames, a tent, a breadmaker). We got mostly cash and had enough along with some of our own savings for a down payment. 🙂

HannahGrace:  Exactly. It’s so rude to ask for money. Just skip the registry and wait and see. Your wedding isn’t about cash, dear.
