So I get that asking for cash is in poor taste. My FI and already have two complete households so we don’t need anything.
I would like to set up a honeymoon registry though for anyone wanting to give something. Any suggestions on how to word it on our wedding website? I was thinking something like, Your presence is gift enough, but if you’d still like to give a gift, we are registered at….[insert honeymoon registry site here}
How does that look? Suggestions appreciated.
Also debating leaving it off completely and letting people know if they ask, what we want or where we are registered.

@Sweetnsassy: I’m in a similar boat. We don’t need a lot of the traditional things but people want to give a gift. I personally hate giving cash and would much rather give an experiance. I did a honeymoon registry on Travelers Joy (www.travelersjoy.com/budzinskicoxwedding/) and even my mom (who initally thought it was a tacky idea) loves it. I haven’t made it public yet as we’re still ironing out the details but it’s a great site and anyone I’ve showed it to has loved it.
In response to your wanting to leave the registry out, it creates a bit of a pain for those wanting to buy you something. I know it sounds insane but whenever I get a bridal shower invite (because that’s when the registry usually comes into play) and there is no mention of a registry, I then have to search the internet to find where the registry is. It just irritates me, personally. There is nothing wrong with a little “we’re already blessed to have a home filled with everything we could ever need but if you’d like to make our honeymoon extra special…”

Hi, I’m looking for ideas on this very topic. My sister used thankyouregistry.com and it worked really well for her. She listed stuff from shops as well as honeymoon experiences (cocktails by the pool… etc). As a guest I really liked it but checking to see what other options are out there. Shall check out Travelers too.. thanks!
