@DuckEBee:  Honestly, I think a fund that specifically requests cash is tacky. It’d rub me the wrong way, and I’m not a member of the older guest crowd.

If I were you, I’d register for the household items you actually want. All you can do is hope that your guests buy those items or give you cash.

I would not donate to any fund that specifically asks for money (unless it was a charity fund that made sense to you personally)

I would have a VERY small registry. People will give money.

My advice is to make a registry for the household items you do need, and tell your parents and wedding party to spread the idea of giving cash via word of mouth. I do think it can come off tacky to ask for cash outright, but spreading the word (through parents and wedding party) that while you do have a registry, cash gifts would be most appreciated it totally fine.

I wouldn’t keep your registry small and just *hope* that people give you cash, because you don’t want to chance having someone go rogue and get you a gift that’s neither from your registry nor cash.

@ImmaBee:  +1 to all of that

I’m not a fan of “funds” when it comes to weddings. Register for those things you listed and leave it at that. Must people will get the hint and give you money. If not you can return or donate the item.

I would just prefer to give money. I’m not a fan of “funds”.
