We are planning to have a coin wedding…meaning we do not want any gifts,we prefer money.I know alot of people think this is rude.But honestly,we do not need anything…if we need or want something, we go buy it ourselves.
My question is: Do I have this announced on the invitations,that it is a coin wedding? AND I could use some help DIY card box.Pictures would be GREAT!

@aechic914: if you really want just money, i would just not register, but not put it on the invites either…. just spread it by word of mouth. we would really love just money as well but i did register for a few things that id like (that id never buy for myself) just to give people options.

We’re actually doing the same thing. We’ve been together for 8 yrs, living together for 7 yrs; bought our home 4 yrs ago; so there isn’t anything we really need. Its not proper ettiquete to say that on the invitations … in fact, you’re not even supposed to be the registry information in the invitations either. (Research I’ve done says the invitation is inviting them to join you on your special day, not because you want something). I don’t know, but that’s what all my “ettiquete” research said lol
It’s supposed to be spread by word of mouth. If there is no information of a registry, what do ppl normally do? Give money. 🙂 So, word of mouth.
Now, we’re having a bridal shower where I’m registering at like a home goods store … and that’s for ppl that fee awkward about giving money. At least they can do a gift then. Registry information is going on that invitation.
I’m working on my DIY card box as well. We’re taking something plain white and adding shells, starfish, sandollers, etc on it. (beach wedding) I’m afraid I don’t have pictures yet. But, I”m a fan of the bird cages! lol
