How would you encourage cash gifts? If you don’t create a registry, people will get creative. Those who want to bring cash will and those who want to come up with their own gift will do that. I personally love writing checks. It’s easy for me and who doesn’t LOVE money!?

I have a friend thats doing a “honeyfund” kind of wish we did the same..

You could do this, and have a registry with a few things you guys need on there also, so that way it looks like you’re giving options..

Don’t “encourage” cash gifts. Everyone knows cash is a nice gift. Just make a small registry and you should be good.

A cash registry is pretty awful. If you have all the stuff you need, don’t register, or do a charity registry. People will get the hint and give you cash, but then it is their idea and not you sticking your hand out.

LavenderMama89:  honeyfinds take a percentage of what people gift you. DO NOT do a honeyfund! If you want money, accept checks and cash. Those sites are a rip off

Can’t you request gift cards from Home Depot or some such? Since you own a home, there will always be little things to do around

Oooof. You cannot “encourage” cash gifts. Make a small registry and leave it at that.

Asking for money is just tacky.

Here is my experience from my wedding.  I created a large BBB registry, 50% of the stuff was bought.  I had a very small honeyfund and I received quite a bit of cash from it.  People gave me way more cash in envelopes, at the wedding, than I was expecting. You don’t need the honeyfund, they will put cash or cheques in an envelope without you having to ask.  They prefer to do that than go through a website, I regret creating the honeyfund because it is a bit tacky.  I think still have a small registry of things you would like to upgrade in your home because people like to bring things to showers and people will still buy you things you don’t want regardless.

We’ve also been living together for over 2 years so when I went to create my registry I was thinking I’d have nothing to put on it. But I actually found a lot of stuff. I put some stuff we don’t absolutely need but would be fun to have like a waffle iron. And I added a lot of stuff we have but upgraded or just new versions like pans, new knives, a better cooking thermometer. You should look you might be surprised. But if you just don’t want more stuff then don’t make a registry. People will give cash.
