I would caution against asking your guests to pay for your wedding.  Host the wedding you can afford.  If you need money instead of gifts, then either don’t do a registry at all or do a small one (who couldn’t use a few more towels and sets of nice sheets, right?!?!) and spread via word of mouth that you’re saving up for <yadda yadda yadda> and let people decide to gift you cash.

that seems very odd to me. if i were a guest i would be a little turned off by that.. maybe you should just ask for cash instead?

No one is going to gift you your videography. If you want it, find a way to adjust your budget to afford it. If you can pay for it with credit and then pay off what you owe with wedding gift money, then so be it.

As for registering for the honeymoon, most people use Honeyfund. Rates of giving are pretty low. It’s easier to just get cash.

How would you even register for that?  I mean, you have to book your videographer and pay a deposit and sign a contract?  What happens if no one gifts it to you(which as I guest I would roll my eyes if I saw that).

@rylee13:  We had the same problem of having everything we really needed, and we lived together for 2 years before the wedding, so a lot of things we had TWO of!  So, because our families are fairly traditional, we decided to have a small-ish traditional registry where we could upgrade several items as well as stock up on sheets, towels, and other housewares.  We got very few off-registry items, but were gifted a generous amount of cash.  We also decided against a honeymoon registry for many reasons, but suffice it to say that our very traditional minded family members would have found it in poor taste.

If you don’t want the physical gifts, don’t have showers. Showers are for physical gifts and there is absolutely no rule that you need to have them. I can’t imagine ever not being able to sue new sheets and towels and things though. Darling Husband and I lived together for 3 years before we got married and I ahd been married before so already ahd a lot of wonderful kitchen items, but we still found plenty to register for: fresh towels, new sheets, better quality pots and pans (like All-Clad, Le Creuset, etc). But, if you don’t want the stuff, don’t register and skip the parties. Then your guests can give you cash for wedding gifts.

@rylee13: I think that Videography is usually pretty pricey. If anyone close to you offers to get to a really special gift or something and asks what they can help with, maybe you could suggest that you’d love some help with videography, for the reasons you’ve mentioned earlier?

Check with your videographer of choice if they can help set you up with a “videographer registry”; I know of at least one company in Chicago that does that.
