Im curious as to how i can ask for money as a gift for our wedding. I am making a website and i have a registry for Target but would realy like to have a part in the registry to say i would love for them to help contribute to our honeymoon. Looks like we will be just going on a cruise and i can book last minute because its off season but how do i nicely say this and how i would prefer it?

it sounds like you’re a perfect candidate for a “honeymoon” registry… hopefully some other bees have more specific advice on how to do that, but they do exist!

You can create a honeymoon registry. I, unfortunately, do not have the slightest idea how to go about doing so, but I know I’ve read of other ladies on here who have them 🙂

Depending on who you’re booking through, you can definitely set up a honeymoon registry. So, if you’re going with Apple Vacations for example, they can help you out with that rather than you saying on a website somewhere that you just want the cash for your honeymoon. This will be a much better way to say it!

Our wording for our honeymoon “registry” was this :
We feel that your presence at our wedding reception is the greatest gift that you could give us.
Since we have been living together for some time we have already accumulated a lot of household items, both traditional and obscure, and therefore we will not be having a traditional wedding registry list.
However if you would still wish to give us something we ask for you to please contribute towards our honeymoon to the Great Barrier Reef and Sydney, Australia.
Wedding gifts will be gratefully received either by post (please write to Steve at Steve and Tash’s home address – contact us if you need it) or at the wedding reception.
We feel like it gets the point across whilst being very relaxed and “us” about it.

There are a bunch of honeymoon registries available online. Google honeymoon registry and you will find many options. We did Traveler’s Joy because they were very user friendly and had a nice website but there are many different sites.

I have been looking at honeymoon registries online and they require you book 45-64 days in advance using what money you already receive and your own… i know my guest and most will be waiting until last minute. We are going to be spontaneous and just choose a cruise leaving one of our two ports the week after our wedding and usually runs alot cheaper closer to the date.. i have miami and fort lauderdale ports here. I would need a registry that does not require much so far in advance if i go that route…. littlemissmoo i like what you wrote!! I previously thought about costa rica but in reality i would need alot of pre planning and money is tight. We are paying for the wedding ourselves.

You could also consider not registering for a lot of gifts and having people say that you prefer cash for your honeymoon if they ask your families. Most people get the hint.

one of my co-workers was actually telling me about the honeymoon registry..you can check out http://www.honeymoonwishes.com she was saying that people can get you stuff for your honeymoon (ie: night out on the town, excursions, spa treatements, etc..) it sounds pretty cool…

melv0802: I looked at that site and to go on a cruise with them :they use carnival: it is 60 something days in advance. Those registries are good if i already have mine planned out and paid for and guests just contribute to other items etc… my problem is i need to see how much we will receive give or take so we can actually plan it.. thats why i was looking for a nice way to ask 🙂
