    @Jen51287:  yes. it’s basically asking for money, which is never appropriate.

    @Jen51287:  I wouldn’t do it because it seems similar to the dollar dance which I loathe. To me, blatantly asking for money just seems tacky. Your guests will likely be bringing gifts/money anyway. Why not use the money you recieve towards your HM?

    I saw this too, and I thought it was pretty cheesy. I wouldn’t do it.

    I think its kind of cute, but I’m not super uptight about things like that. I think most bees will think its rude.

    Not a fan just because I don’t think guests should pay for your honeymoon.

    Asking for money is rarely ok, unless you’re working for it.

    Honeymoon jar should be in your home to catch spare change at the end of the day. Not at your wedding.

    @Jen51287:  At what other social occasion would anyone put out a jar begging for money from their guests? I don’t invite you over for aparty  and put out a jar begging for donations to cover my next trip home to visit my parents.

    It is totally inappropriate.

    @Jen51287:  OK I know this word is hated on the Bee but all I can say is T-A-C-K-Y. If you can’t afford a honeymoon you know what? You don’t go on one! Your guests are obligated to you for one day, technically only a few hours with the exception of the bridal party. What happens after that is no one else’s responsibility. Good grief, if I saw something like that on a gift table I’d feel inclined to spit in it.

    I have seen it on Pinterest, and I think it’s cute. I don’t know if it’s entirely appropriate, though, since guests are probably bringing money anyway for the card box. I like the idea of putting it in your house though! And that shape so it’s harder to get money out of it, haha. 

    Slightly related, this one makes me laugh:

    I’d so do this one if I was okay with cake-in-the face. Tongue Out

    Op your instincts were right; it would be very rude. Your guests have already bought you a gift – it would be in extremely poor taste to beg them for money.

    I certainly wouldn’t be putting money in it, that’s for sure. I’d probably roll my eyes and move on.
