- Wedding: June 2012
So we’re going a wedding in the US, but I’ve also got a bunch of relatives in China. Pretty soon right after our US wedding, me, fiance, my parents, future in laws, future bro in law and his fiancee, are ALL going to China for another wedding there so the family there can celebrate. A trip to China costs about $1,000 in roundtrip airfare alone, and I’d love help in paying for it.
We will probably go on a real honeymoon about 6 months after the wedding and have a couple of destinations in mind, but don’t have any solid plans yet and certainly won’t be planning it in the time before the wedding.
So, my question to all you bees is this: Is it ok to have a honeyfund for expenses for the China wedding trip? I know some people already think a Honeyfund is bordering on the tacky side for a real honeymoon, but for a wedding-related trip that is not a honeymoon is that even worse? We will also still have a traditional registry as well as an alternative, but we won’t have a ton of items there because we’ve been living together for years and are getting pretty settled.
The alternative that I’m leaning towards is just sort of making up our 6 months later honeymoon, without planning for it. If the destination changes, I don’t think any of my guests who contributed will throw a fit or anything, right? Just want to make a sensible registry without offending anyone.
