    I don’t see any reason why you can’t have both. Just put in a note saying that in keeping with Jamaican tradition you have registered at the bank if guests wish to contribute a monetary gift. For those guests wishing to forgo that tradition you’ll also be registering at Bed Bath and Beyond. I’d definitely include note because I could see how it could be misconstrued by those outside of that culture. Maybe not use the words I put exactly but something that would convey that idea.

    I wouldn’t put a bank account number on there.. i don’t know what it is but asking for money directly from guests comes off as rude to me.  Not that you are, just that I have read a few posts about that sort of thing and a lot of people don’t really like it.


    Then again its your wedding so really you should jsut do what you feel is right.

    You should totally use depositagift.com! That’s what we’re using and it works really well.Your Jamaican friends will be cool with it because it basically lets you give cash, and your English friends will like it too because it’s just like a traditional registry. You set it up like you would at any other store, add absolutley anything to it, and when your friends buy you a gift, they’re really just sending you cash. Works great!

    I also think something you do is not give the English people that information, and just give it to people who know or understand the tradition!

    I think you can find a way to do both…however, I don’t think having a registry will prevent people from giving cash or vice versa….if it’s the norm than I say go for it!
