@angie.derek.anderson:  I myself think it’s kind of tacky.  Iam sure you will get cash gifts on your wedding day, perhaps you can use that to fund your honeymoon.  I would also register, most of those things will be purchased for you during your shower, and probably things you will need anyway for your home together.

I’m not familiar with HoneyFund. Is it one where guests can buy you different “items” for your honeymoon?

i.e. a couples massage, a dinner out, etc?

Or is it purely just asking for monetary donations?

I know it all just comes to you has money, but I think it’s slightly better if they are buying you “experiences” rather than just donating money.

Just be aware that some people will decide they’d rather give you a physical gift rather than money and if you don’t have a registry for physical gifts they will get something that they think you want/need.

@angie.derek.anderson: You’re certainly able to do whatever you want.

If it’s the only option you’re presenting people with, I do think you’ll get more donations through the honeymoon registry than physical gifts, since they have no other registry to choose from.

Are you asking if some of your guests will think it’s tacky?  I’m sure some will.  As a guest, I personally wouldn’t like the feeling of being forced into giving cash, but I’d do it since it’s what was being asked.

We’re also paying for our wedding for ourselves, and are considering dropping our honeymoon because other costs are increasing.  If we end up having to do that, we’ll have a small getaway (like maybe a B&B or go to the beach for a day or two), and then have our big honeymoon for our 1 year anniversary.

Another thing to consider: older relatives and friends of the family who do not know how to use computers or don’t have access to a computer won’t be able to use it. There will also be the kinds of guests who love to buy physical presents they can wrap up and give to you, especially if you are having a shower. Make it easier on them AND yourself and just add a few things to a Target or Bed Bath and Beyond registry. That way they know what you actually like and you don’t end up with stuff you hate.
