ok, i know some people find it tacky, the honeymoon registries?? and of course, EVERYBODY knows better than to say “CASH”! lol
BUT, in setting up my friends wedding and website, i had an etiquette question.
the website has a registry page. this is what i have so far–
“the bride and groom have already set up home. they are not registering at any particular department store.”
–how do i politely add that guests have the option, of calling the cruise line, and adding “credit” to the B & G’s room/tab? we aren’t doing any excursions, but you know what i mean. onship credit…of course, the night before, it’s transferred into check/cash, but still…

I guess something like
“For those who interested in creating an unforgettable honeymoon for us, you can contribute to it by calling Cruis Line Name at #####”

i really liked what my wedding planner had given me to use on my website for our honeymoon registry:
Family & Friends,
We look forward to your presence on our special day. Of course, ALL we ask is your presence. If you cannot attend, your thoughts and wishes are greatly appreciated. We do realize that many of you may wish to give us a wedding gift to commemorate our union together. We have decided to offer our guests a popular new wedding gift alternative – our Honeymoon Registry! This will allow you to help us create the honeymoon memories that will last us a lifetime!
With all our love,
PurpleUnicorn & Mr. Unicorn
— you can tweak it as necessary

We are using wording similar to lefeym’s
suggestion. We set up a registry with Pampered Chef so that we could be gifted less expensive gifts and also put a mention out there that we would take Carnival’s Fun Ship Dollars Gift Certificates or onboard credit.

If you register a cruise with Honeymoonwishes.com. The guests purchase things for the couple, like money contribution toward the honeymoon, excursions, photos, etc. But what most people do not know is that whatever amount is purchased by guests is actually a lump total applied to the couple’s cruise payment. Just because someone purchased a waterski excursion does not mean that money goes toward the waterski excursion, that amount of money just gets deposited into the couple’s honeymoon bank and then by the date set by the couple the money is sent to the cruiseline. It makes buying gifts a little easier for the guests by just having to visit a website and the couple gets a list of who bought what.
