I have a registry but I stuck to mainly activities instead of lodging, airfare etc like some people list. I did put a room upgrade on there as an option and just listed the approx cost. I think when you break it down like asking for 10 of $50 etc no one can really guess the exact cost anyone. I just tried to be reasonable and listed things like cocktails starting at $10 up to things that were $100. Anything over $100 I broke down into multiples for people.

We put up our specific costs. Or round abouts anyways.

I put the actual cost per quantity.  For example, 2 tickets to ATV’s was 1 x $79 and they could pick 1 or 2.  For the drink package on the cruise I put that we wanted 22 x $15 and the could pick any quantity x $15.  Probably anything over $100 I would break down.

We made stuff up. Ours went towards a 6-month trek through Asia, so things would have been estimates, anyway. We basically stacked the list to show a variety of things in price ranges from $20-$200, so everyone could afford something.

I’m making up numbers… I don’t need people to know exactly how much we are spending on things, that is just asking for judgement!  Instead I’m doing what you are doing, “x amount at x amount” even if that is not the actual cost.   I’m also not expecting the honeyfund to be used to actually cover the honeymoon, more so as an easier way for those that want to give us cash to be able to, so all of my numbers will be estimates or made up.

i tried to guess what the numbers would be and then i sometimes broke it down so more than one person could contribute towards it.  I was also really set on using the money for the activity specifed, so i did not have a lot of items. I only put stuff that i would really do.  so rather than listing a bunch of activities, i put my top two and made them more expensive than the other items. that way, if someone bought, i would be sure to do it!  it worked out good that way.

We have a honeymoon registry.  We didn’t list lodging or airfare.  Kept it to activities like kayaking, sunset sail cruise, and admission costs.  We didn’t put the total cost, instead broke it down into smaller gifts.  For example, the sunset cruise is $150 so we asked for 2 $75 gifts.  Hope that helps.
