So like many we want cash, because we have a house and it’s all good and furnished. That said, I’ve been saying we aren’t registering and prefer cash gifts only when asked. But for those who don’t ask… what should I do?
All RSVP will be done online via our website… so most if not all guests will see the site. Should I say/ mention NOTHING about registry and imply that by no registry we want cash or mention something. Please vote.
**I know this is a delicate issues** and I have told bridal party to spread the word if they are asked etc.

We’re not doing a registry and just not mentioning it anywhere on the website.

Here is what we have on our website. It’s on a tab called Gifts.
Having you at our wedding will be all the gift we need! We will have been living together for over three years by the time we are married, so we have everything we need already.
If you really want to give a gift in addition to your presence, we will gratefully accept donations towards our honeymoon. We are planning on spending our honeymoon in Switzerland because it is a very special place for both of us.

I think the general idea is that if you don’t have registry info available to people (through a website, your bridal party, your family) then people will make the assumption that if they gift, they might want to give money. I probably just wouldn’t put anything and have those who are likely to be asked aware that you’d prefer monetary gifts.

We have a link on our web site to apply monetary gifts toward the purchase of our honeymoon. We set up a pay pal account and it will just keep the money there until we are ready to use it. Of course we do not have to use all of it for our honeymoon. We are saving for a house so it would be really awesome to have extra money for that!
