So I got the invite my BMs sent today for a shower they wanted to throw me and they put my wedding registry from my website as the registry.
This wouldn’t be a big deal if we had a normal registry with pots and pans but we are using honeyfund! I don’t want a lecture how honeyfund is tacky, we’re having a Destination Wedding wedding we can’t transport stuff, but I think guests are gonna seriously think I’m an ass. I thought they were doing a lingere theme.
<– me right now casue I donno how I feel.
Do I say anything?

Nope. You smile and appreciate the effort. They had the best intentions and isn’t it amazing that they are throwing you a shower when we see so many girls post about how they aren’t having one at all (just keep telling yourself this LOL)

That’s not tacky in my eyes! People are suppose to love you and support not judge you right? I think it’ll be fine. I hate ettiquette and the “rules” of a wedding. Have a great time!

Honestly, I’d say something to your friends just because as a guest I’d be confused if I got a shower invite listing a honeyfund registry. I’d prob end up getting you a gift card to macys or something.

Nope, because it’s NOT tacky. My shower invites, sent out by my mom’s friends, had registry info. I think it’s pretty standard. Also, FI’s sister and many of my friends have used honeyfund and have loved it. I see nothing wrong with it.

It’s a little late now, I wouldn’t worry about it. Honestly, I’ve received invites like that before and have never been offended.

Don’t worry about it. I wouldn’t be offended if I got an invite to a shower with a honeyfund registry.

I wouldn’t be offended if I received a honeyfund registry but I would be confused. Isn’t the point of a shower to shower the couple with gifts? So with a honeyfund registry, do they print out the certificate showing you what dollar amount they sent you or ??? I guess I honestly don’t know (I’ve never used that sort of registry).
Regardless, what’s done is done and there isn’t anything you can do about it now. You could voice your concern to your Maid/Matron of Honor but at this point, it’s probably pointless (since they’ve already gone out).

@milesbella: That is my concern too I think people will be confused. Are they supposed to get us 2 things off our honeyfund?
I am not having a big wedding and I don’t have too many honeyfund items on there to begin with, let alone cheaper things like I’d expect for a shower…
Anyway, thanks, for the input I’m not gonna say anything and we’ll see how it goes.

Six years ago when my friend got married, they did a honeymoon registry. No one had heard of this back then. However, for her shower, I bought her something off the registry like a candlelit dinner or something and printed out the certificate for her to open. It seemed to work fine back then and more people know about this stuff now. You should be ok.
