    Yeah…I wouldn’t go this route 🙁  And honestly, if we were your guests…we’d have nothing to give you.  We don’t carry cash around.

    engagement party – er no not right at all

    i dont like them at weddings even. but particularly not for an engagement party. i dont think people should bring gifts to it, maybe a bottle of wine. but nowadays with engagement party gifts, bridal shower gifts, bachelorette and wedding gift – its very expensive

    I agree with a PP that I wouldn’t have anything to put in the jar because I don’t carry that much cash. But I would send you a check later if your engagement party turned out to be a wedding.

    @LionLove:  I love this idea. It’s more subtle. The only other option is to get close family to spead the word if asked!!

    I see nothing with registering for a honeymoon if that is what you want although some people are up in arms about that.

    I just find it distasteful and odd to have what is basically a “tip jar” out at a wedding. I spreading it quietly or word of mouth. So for example if people ask you parents what you need they tell them.

    Keep your honeymoon fund jar on your kitchen counter, not at a hosted event ever.

    @becky2198:  thing is, in that case i wouldnt have thought people would have much cash on them. i pretty much use cards for everything so i would literally only have pennies to give you =S

    i still wouldnt do it. if people offer – awesome. but i dont think you should ever do anything that can be construed as asking for gifts
