    Girl if you wanna go to Harry Potter land, don’t let anyone stand in your way!  It’s not tacky if you let your guests know you have not chosen a traditional registry in a classy way.  If you can, send out save the dates and make a wedding website for you and your fiance that puts all the info on there about your honeyfund and clearly and politely lay out that you would prefer a donation to your honeymoon- then print only the web address of your wedding website on the save the date cards.  You can also print “no boxed gifts please” on the wedding invitations and have family and friends circulate by word of mouth that you would like help paying for your honeymoon instead of gifts for your home. It’s really not distasteful at all- people think you have to follow every little tradition, (you don’t) and plus, what were you going to do with six sets of salt and pepper grinders anyways???

    @Kelshock:  I don’t think it’s tacky but I wouldn’t do it. I think those websites usually charge something so your guests pay more than you actually recieve. I would just spread by word of mouth that you and your Fiance aren’t registering and would really like cash. If it comes from your mom and siblings, it can’t be rude, right?

    I could be mistaken, but I read on another thread that that website takes a percentage out.

    FH and I registered with honeyfund. I’ve gotten nothing but compliments on it, and I think its a fun way for people to feel like they’re involved in our honeymoond. But, our honeymoon is already bought and paid for. I would never depend on the registry to fund my honeymoon because you never know what your guests are going to do. We also have a registry with BBB and Amazon. Aany money we get from the honeymoon will either go to honeymoon activities or go towards our next trip, which we’ve also put as an option on our honeyfund site.

    At the end of the day, its your wedding and your registry. Do what you are comfortable and happy doing. Good luck!
