    I personally wouldn’t have this on my wedding site, with that being said if i read this I wouldn’t be offended, I’d just grab my check book 🙂 the only part I didn’t like was the “we don’t want presents” there are always gonna be people who wanna bring presents! You could register and have a note that says have everything shipped to our house please… Anyways I got side tracked lol I think the poem is totally fine

    I don’t see how it’s any different from putting a gift registry.

    As much as a part of me wishes it wasn’t tacky to let people know what you’d like to receive, I think it’s inappropriate. I understand the desire. Who wants things they don’t need? However, I think your hands are tied here. If you really want to put something, you could do an FAQ section on your website with a link to a honeymoon registry. Perhaps if a lot of people ask? In general, though, I’m under the impression that many consider it rude to even let people know where you are registered unless they ask first.

    I think it’s cute! I wouldn’t be offended. 🙂

    @subtlebee: I don’t see how it isn’t a “real” poem.

    I would probaby give you cash… Until I saw that poem! I’m sorry, I think asking for a cash gift is AWFUL! I would give a LOT less if you were asking for it. I’m sorry! That’s just how I am!

    @PonytailKim:  a ryhme does not a poem make. there is no meter.

    I think it’s perfectly fine.

    people on here are so opinionated about not putting on invites but putting it on your website instead….. Then when the person wants to put it on the website they still think its tacky!

    I put this info on my website because we had a honeymoon fund so obviously we wanted people to know.   We ended up only getting one actual gift from someone that couldnt make the wedding.

    i think the poem is cute, do it

    i personally hate the poems. i think its obvious for a wedding where the couple fly to that money is the best option for a gift

    but regardless i think its better not to mention it. if you say “no presents required” than mention a way they can give you a present it seems like youre asking but trying to pretend not to

    Meh, I’m a fan of bluntness (and only about money/gifts on the website, so invitations!). I would just put a simple, “Hey, we aren’t registered because we are unable to transport any gifts after the wedding.”

    And then people will just know the give money if they give anything.

    But by all means, do the poem if you really want. It just isn’t my own style.

    @subtlebee:  I don’t think she was trying to be Robert Frost or anything…

    I don’t understand some people on here.   You would give someone less money for a honeymoon fund then a gift registry??   It’s the same thing!!!! It’s still a registry and its still asking for something.    What is so wrong with giving a couple something they would like?
