I’m curiuous if peoples’ opinions about honeymoon registries is related to age and/or geography. Can you reply to this post with answers to the following questions:
1. Are Honeymoon registries a DO? or a DON’T?
2. What state do you live in? / Where did you grow up?
3. What is your current age?

1. Depends on the couple… and be careful when you ask “do’s and dont’s” on here…it can turn into an all out cat fight and you will get all sorts of different answers… We just got married on July 19th this year and did a honeymoon registry…everyone has their reasons for liking or disliking honeymoon registries…

I personally would neither have nor contribute to a honeymoon registry.
I have lived in most major regions of the USA. My etiquette attitudes were largely shaped by my mother, who grew up in the mid-Atlantic.
I am in my mid-to-late thirties.

I say do whatever you want but personally I wouldn’t do it and I think it’s kind of tacky.
I’m in BC, Canada and 35.

If it’s actually for experiences during the honeymoon and not just money, sure. Otherwise I think they are silly. No registry – I’ll probably give a cheque and no cut is taken

1. A don’t for me. Any request for cash in any form unless a deep seated cultural tradition, is tacky. Gift registries are to assist people who wanted to give a gift but do not know the couples personal tastes. There’s a difference.
