We just didn’t register anywhere.  People got the hint.

I am in the SAME boat!


We are going on a cruise for our honeymoon. Royal Caribbean allows people to gift you “royal bucks”. Basically they buy u gift cards to use on the cruise..


Just let everyone know you would rather have money. I don’t think they will be upset. IT will save them the hassle of having to pick out a gift!

I just went to a wedding where they registered for very few items and put on the wedding website that cash/checks/gift cards would be greatly appreciated/preferred. They had some people that were pretty upset about it and thought that was rude/tacky, but you’re not going to please everyone. There are honeymoon registeries out there (though I can’t provide links – but if you google it, I’m sure something will pop up). The only thing about those is that usually you  have to already booked the actual trip and then people can buy you drinks, dinner, massages, room upgrades, etc. Hope that helps a little. Good luck and happy planning!

You just don’t register or do a very very small registry.

My friend did a honeymoon registry on there and it was perfect! She was able to customize it exactly how she wanted. 

She also did a traditional registry at Bed Bath & Beyond but only registered for the things she needed. That way it was very limited but nobody was offended.

I would make sure that your bridal party and immediate families know that’s what you want. That way they can spread the word if anyone asks. But I also agree with having a small or no registry. You’ll probably get some off the wall gifts from people who really want to buy something but if you’re okay with that than I think that’s the way to go.
