    We were going to one. Its kind of like a Wishing Tree, People write wishes on a card & put it in a box (or in my cases a box that looked like a well) I was going to do it instead of a guest book

    Like a well full of water people throw coins in to make a wish?

    I’ve never heard of doing this at a wedding. For a shower, yes…but usually for smaller things like utensils or gadgets.

    No, I would not ask my guests to give me money.

    Be careful. There was a post about this about a month ago, not good at linking it. It comes off wrong to people and To be honest if I were at a wedding I would be offended. Its ok to prefer cash and many people today give money but you need to register even if its something like honeyfund where they send the money to you and get a certificate of what they are helping you get. If there wasn’t a registry and people assume cash and yes I would give cash but my gift is always smaller if there is no registry. I want to know what you will be using it for.

    No.  And I strongly advise against anyone doing them.  Asking for money is rude and can be offensive to people (at least in the States, apparently it’s ok in some countries). 

    If you prefer money, either have a small registry or none at all.  If people ask what you’d like, you can tell them you aren’t registered but are saving up for XYZ.  People will get the hint that you’d prefer cash.

    Must share.

    When I was little I loved Snow white – and you know how she sing that “I’m wishing for the one I love to find me -” Song into the well at the start of the movie

    well.. I’m quite the actress- so when I was 3 my mom stuck snow white in for me and when she came to check on me I was gone! she starting looking everywhere-

    she finally check the bathroom- where I had slipped on my snow white dress and was leaning over our toilet singing “I’m wishing for the one I love to find me today!”.

    Its been told over a million times in our family…

    so you can only guess that when I read this I got an image of my mom decorating a toilet and sticking it at our reception.

    Oh man!

    We always joked that since I wished in a toilet I’d get a turd! I am so glad I didn’t!!! yay fi!
