    I think it’s adorable! I’d much rather give a couple something I know they want. It’s a really important gift (and a really cute idea). Hope it works!

    I think your poll isn’t really worded to get clear results, but I think it’s inappropriate personally. People are already bringing you a gift.

    Guests are already bringing a gift. I think it’s rude to try and hit them up for more.

    Guests are already attending & bringing a gift. They are not responsible for your honeymoon.

    Really rude. you shouldn’t be chasing after your guests for their pocket change. Do a honeymoon fund instead of (not in addition to) a registry.

    I personally think it’s inappropriate. I already brought a gift so I would not be contributing anything else. Why don’t you cut back on the wedding a bit and use the extra money for a honeymoon?

    ETA: your poll is confusing. I wasn’t sure if I should vote “yes” it is rude or “no” don’t do one.

    It’s not your guests’ problem that you want a honeymoon you can’t afford.  Honeymoon registries themselves are conrovertial as to whether they are rude or not, but a jar at the reception asking for even more money (on top of attending the wedding and buying a gift) is incredibly rude.  If you would rather have cash gifts that could potentially fund the honeymoon, don’t have a traditional registry or just register for a few things.

    Yes, it’s rude. Please, please, please don’t do it. It’s rude to in any way ask for money.

    i remember seeing some jars at the bar labelled ‘honeymoon slush fund’ but that was 15 + years ago.  i haven’t seen anything like that recently.

    why don’t you just do a honeymoon registry instead?  the other option would be to wait and plan a honeymoon after the wedding.

    In Australia, instead of gifts, “wishing wells” are very popular. basically cash in cards. 

    However i wouldnt expect gifts and a contribution to the wishing well too. 

    I have actually never been to a wedding and bought them a physical gift, here in australia its usually a wishing well or a payment to a travel agency/honeymoon registry.

    I voted no but I meant yes. Yes, it is rude to have a collections jar to fund your honeymoon.
