@amc75:  I have lived with my FI for 5 years (we have been together for 9 1/2 years). We have lots of things, but they are not necessarily nice things. So we put together a very small registry of reasonably priced, but upgraded items. There really is no polite way of asking/suggesting any kind of gift or even a donation to charity. If you really do not want a registry, then don’t register. You will likely get some cash gifts and maybe a few toasters/blenders, etc.

you don’t have to pay the fees the honeyfun website charge to have a honeyfund.  Many offer a free version.  It dosn’t have all the nice pics but that really isn’t necessary.

If you use the Honeyfund website, there is an option to have guests give cash/check only. There is an option to allow them to use a credit card, but there is a fee associated with that. My fiance and I have a Honeyfund with the cash/check only option, and we received our first one in a card yesterday. There is a paper they print out that they can add a message to if they wish. It was so easy to put it together and we liked that there were no fees! 🙂

Don’t register. Most people will give you cash, and those people that insist on getting you a physical gift would have done so even if you had made a Honeyfund.

Don’t register, or use a free honeymoon registry. I used Wanderable and chose to pay the extra because I loved the pinterest style page and how it made things so much easier for our guests.

I think it looks super professional! PM me if you’d like to see mine and I’ll send you the link. I think it was absolutely worth the investment and have had so many compliments on it.
