This is my second wedding and my fiance’s first. We dont need towels and dishes. He is footing the bill for a traditional wedding ’cause he is an old fashioned guy & wants that. He is also currently supporting me and my 2 teen aged boys because I am a full time student. We are worried that with the expense of a wedding and his single income for us all, we won’tbe able to afford a honeymoon. I have heard that asking for donations to the honeymoon as a gift is boecoming popular, but don’t want to offend anyone. Any thoughts out there?

I have received invitations where the bride/couple is registered with a travel agencey..not sure how it works but you might check with a local travel agent? I think it is getting more common with a lot of couples setting up their homes before they get married so they really don’t need the traditional things….

I’m using honeyfund.com
It’s set up like a registry and people can buy “items” off of it. All the money goes through PayPal so it’s like a monetary gift but people who like to give actual gifts feel like they’re actually giving you something!

we are doing this…
the only person that seems to hate this idea is his aunt… (and when we find out where this gift from, we’ll be returning it… unless it’s super awesome like an all clad) i really could care less lol we don’t need junk. we have everything already. everyone else i know on my side is giving money. we’ve gotten $1200 from 2 people on my side so far. 🙂
i created a website that links to paypal for donations.
