@skippydarling:  You already got what you asked for, so I don’t think you should ask for more. Imagine Great Aunt Gertrude tells everyone that she purchased your entire honeymoon for you. Well, won’t you look like an ass asking for even more.

I’d register for some small items and call it a day. Anything extra from what you already received is a bonus.

I am going to disagree and say you should register at some bricks and mortar stores for household items.  Guests appreciate having the guidance.  You are far enough out, that people won’t even know about any registries yet unless they’ve specifically asked.

I would say do not ask for more cash, but do register for things.  Some people, myself included, prefer to give stuff over money.

(ETA: we only registered for anything about 5 weeks out from our wedding.  Very little has been bought from our registry. Most guests buy within the week of the wedding, and just today I was asked by 3 people where we are registered.)

@skippydarling:  Obviously the person who did this for you is very generous, but they may comment to someone that they did it. That would confuse guests if they saw there was still room on the honeyfund, and it would also piss off the generous gift giver.

I’m sure there are at least a few things you want from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Everyone can use more towels! Everyone!

@SeaSalt:  This. I hate honeyfunds, but I wasn’t focusing on that. I prefer to give stuff than money and I hate being asked for money. Giving guests some tangible options is a good idea (at least in my opinion).

@skippydarling:  I’d definitely beef up your non-honeymoon registries.  I prefer to give stuff over cash (mostly because I can’t afford to give much), and it always frustrates me when there aren’t any registry items left in my price range.

I’m going to disagree. I love honeyfunds and love gifting to them. They make my life easier. Add money to it so people like me can get your gift online rather than having to go to a bricks & mortar place (which i personally don’t like & try to avoid depending on which persons wedding I’m going to)

@skippydarling:  Check your registry regularly to make sure things haven’t been bought or discontinued. There should always be a good selection of items in every price range. If all the <$75 items are taken, then you should go in and add some more.

 

Like I said, we only registered about amonth ago, and I had no shower, so this hasn’t been a problem for us.lol Almost nothing has been bought from our registry so far, but that’s cool.  Next Sunday might be a little more like Christmas. 🙂

@skippydarling:  Registering for small stuff is hard!  There’s plenty of little stuff I want, but most of it is disposable (candles, etc), and I hate registering for things that won’t be around in a year.

@skippydarling:  I agree with @SeaSalt in saying that you should definitely register for more items, however I would not add things on to the honeyfund.
