FI and I finally decided where to go and everything is booked…sweet! We are going to The Riviera Maya, staying at an all inclusive resort for a fantastic price for a week. AND we are doing a honeymoon registery through Liberty Travel which to my surprise HAS NO CHARGE for everything. So no charges for our guests and no charges for us. Lots of negativity out there about this process, so I wanted to clear the air and let brides who are interested that there doesn’t have to be a charge. Apparently, if you do an ONLINE registery then it’s through paypal which charges you or your guest or both I guess. And, we are including this info in our invites unlike a lot of nasty posts saying that this is “rude” for some reason.
So for all you brides out there who like to “break the rules” and be non-traditional, I give you my support and encouragement! LOL! Anyone else “breaking the rules??”

Awesome! More power to you. I never like the ettique rules anyway. When I told people about the ettique rules I’ve read on here, people look at me as if I made them up.

I threw out the rule book the day that fmil unsolicitedly told me “your honeymoon registry is wrong and no one will like it because you are supposed to pay for your OWN honeymoon.”
Good for you!

LOL – good for you! If you would rather a contribution to your honeymoon rather than cash for your wedding then speak up!

Kudos! I think rules against these things are stupid anyway.

Good for you! It’s nice to see someone asking for what they really want, rather than feeling pressured to register for a food mixer!

Good for you!!! It’s so nice to see people breaking these so-called “rules” it’s your wedding, and your honeymoon, and you should do exactly what is best for you!

i’m amazed that no one so far told her how tacky it is and how they would give you a toaster just to spite you.

I wouldn’t give you a toaster to spite you or anything like that, but you’re really posting on the etiquette board to say that you don’t like or want to follow etiquette? Regardless of what kind of registry it is, yeah it is rude and bad etiquette to put registry info on the invitations. Unless you mean your bridal shower invites – I hope you mean that and not the actual wedding invites.
I think most etiquette it pretty much just about being polite to your guests, I’m always surprised to see how bees bash it. What’s wrong with guidelines to make sure you’re being polite? I know some of them get a little crazy, but most just seem like common sense to me.

@KatyElle: Indeed! One of those people you really wonder what they would have gone on to do if given more time
