We’re doing a honeymoon registry (on honeyfund) and a Bed Bath and Beyond registry.  People have been pretty positive about the cash registries, but I think it’s important to have a specific goal in mind, versus just money for the sake of money.  E.g. a honeymoon, down payment on a house, etc.

We are using Honeymoon Wishes, it’s been great so far! No offense to those using Honefund but I did a lot of research and Honeymoon Wishes collects the money (even if people want to use a check) and they don’t put ads on our webpage. That was my main reason for choosing them.

We are able to blog about the wedding and upcoming events, share pictures, etc. So it’s a useful tool if you’re not a pro at creating your own website. We have had great responses and people are very excited to purchase us “experiences” instead of gifts we don’t need (same as you, we’re in our 30s and don’t need a toaster/blender, etc).

You can book the things people buy or cash the money out! It’s a great registry. Hope this helps- good luck! 🙂

We already owned a home when we got married so we registered for just a few fill in things that I never really bought but could use sometime.  Other than that, we had people spread the word that we would like cash because we were moving across the country right after the wedding and didn’t want to transport a lot of things.

You can always ask your guests to make donations to a charity that has meaning for you and your FI.  This is one of the things we’ve done and it’s gotten a good response. (we make more than many of our guests, and so it seems silly to ask them for money).

Well, at Bed Bath and Beyond you can register for all kinds of things: home decor, furniture. New towels? Upgraded pots and pans, or extra dishes? Little cooking gadgets you might need or need replaced?

We’re also registering through Amazon for things like games, books, electronics and camping equipment. You can register for candles, pillows, pretty much anything through Amazon.

Honeymoon registry or on amazon you can register for all sorts of things – camping equipment, movies, other things related to your hobbies. However, after looking at upon our star – I love it – really tasteful & cute. I would still register for some “stuff” because there will probably be some that want to give you a tangible gift. Good luck!

we’re doing Honeyfun, and we’ve created an alternate Target registry for those who’d prefer to give a traditional gift. FI and I have lived together for the past 2 years, and we’re pretty self-sufficient also, so a huge registry didn’t seem practical to us.
