No, I agree. I think that’s pretty tacky.

How was it listed by priority, exactly? I’m just curious how it was worded on the invitation.

I think if it’s listed in that order with no specific mention of priority, then its fine.





(Then in fine print:)

But I have a feeling the invitation you got may not have been that simple.

Ew! I think it’s beyond tacky… 

I can’t stand when couples ask for money for their honeymoon, but this is even worse because they’re asking for money for the honeymoon and flowers, AND gifts. 

I think if people want a honeymoon or flowers then they should pay for it themselves. If they can’t afford an expensive honeymoon then they should just go for a road trip, and if they can’t afford flowers they should find some quality artificial ones. These are luxuries! If you’re planning a wedding you should take flowers into account when budgeting, and you should save up for a honeymoon.

If I were invited to such a wedding I would just take a gift.

The registries are usually on a separate insert with the invite.

However you list them, people will choose a gift according to what they can afford and their personal preference for gift giving. I’ve never been a fan of websites that take money – they take a cut so you don’t get the full benefit of the giver’s present. I don’t care one way or another, but rest assured many people won’t donate to the fund. They would prefer to give you cash instead.

@lovelylight99:  they have to list them, since there’s more then one, if it didn’t mentoin please contrihute to honey moon fund or you could shop at such and such store, then I don’t see the big deal.
