@bombaysapphire_13:  I disagree with bees saying you should complete a small registry. Just say, we’re not registered anywhere. People will get the hint.

I didn’t read all of the PP so they probably covered it, but:

1) It’s rude to have tiered events. Everyone invited to a reception should be invited to the ceremony and vice versa EXCEPT if you are eloping and non one is invited, which is not the case here.

2) No. There is no polite way to ask for cash and furthermore, many people find even the veiled ask for cash of a honeyfund rude too (made even more sketchy by the fact that your guests don’t necessarily know all you get is a check, with honeyfund taking a cut to boot)

You need to really rethink how you’re doing things here.
