If you don’t like that the honey fund websites take a cut of the money then why not tell your guests you don’t have one or a registry and their company is better than any gift you could ask for. I suppose if they really want to contribute they could just put it in your bank account?

  • Wedding: October 2017

I also live abroad and doing our wedding in Europe, our guests are from the States and we did Zola. The convenience of having people be able to do it online and not worry about checks or cash is a huge timesaver and even though there’s a fee for the credit card processing, it’s totally worth it for me. I would rather not have to worry about guests needing to get Euros or ending up with a lot of American dollars. 

If you PM I can send you a link to Zola and we’ll both get a $50 credit.

MarocBride :  I don’t get the thinking of using one of those sites if you recognise they are dishonest and a rip off. If people ask you directly why can you not just say “we are not having any registries, your presence is gift enough but if you really feel like gifting then we are saving for our honeymoon/house downpayment/renovations”. The guests will then just give you cash.

MarocBride :  Thankful Registry allows you to register for items or cash gifts. They don’t take any of the money from you. You pay a small fee to register, but then you keep every penny that is gifted to you. We really liked it.
