Yeah I absolutely would not be giving my CC info over the phone to someone.  Sorry, that would skeeve me out.   I’d rather just give you cash…

I don’t like giving my credit card details out over the phone. I would just give cash.

I wouldn’t be contributing. I would give cash or a gift card to Target.

don’t do this. 

if you don’t register you are more likely to get cash gifts.

I would simply give you cash or a gift card. I would not be okay with giving my information over the phone to anyone. We had a situation where someone took down a family member’s information for something they ordered for a bride and groom and the salesperson wrote our info down on a post-it and threw it away when they were done…well, someone fished it out of the trash and used their info.

we are doing this exact method, will be interesting to see if people actually use it. Let me know how it works out for you.

We are debating between travlers joy (which a friend used ananand loved) and wanderable…..

 

I loved buying stuff on my friends honeymoon registries, it feels like you get to be a special part of their relationship …not just a random item in their kitchen or bathroom.

I generally think that honeymoon registries are in poor taste, but this also seems very complicated and too much trouble.  I would probably just pick a different gift or give cash.

Considering the fees and potential discomfort of your guests, I would forego this idea.

ecrowe1218:  I am now looking into Wanderable since their fee is only 2.5% if paying by credit card or no fee if they send a check. 

<div style=”overflow: hidden; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;”><br />I’m sorry but that last part makes me chuckle.  They won’t charge me a fee if I don’t use their service and just give you a check or cash?  Wow…how generous.  </div>

<div style=”overflow: hidden; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: left; text-decoration: none;”>I guess I don’t understand why you would set up a service to take a part of your gift?  When all you are getting is cash anyway.  Why not go the polite, way and not register?  People are not dense and will get that you would prefer cash. </div>

I like honeymoon registries, but I wouldn’t give info over a phone.  I might be willing to go to the office and do it in person though.

Edit for typos.

Honeymoon registeries are very common where I’m from in the UK but it should be done in a way that is as easy as possible for your Guests.

We are opening one through Trailfinders UK where Guests have an option to pay online by card (no fees), do it over the phone or send a cheque. If people would still prefer to bring an actual gift or give us cash then we’re making it clear that that’s fine too!
