@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!
