I think cash registries are rude personally.  I would feel uncomfortable asking for money – even in one of these alternative ways.

Register for some nicer items that you don’t want to buy yourself.  We are in the same boat as you but are planning to register for things we would want a few years down the line when we buy our “real” house.  

I wouldn’t assume having a small registry or no registry means people will automatically give you money.  People that want to give a physical gift will – and if you have a small/no registry, they will give you something you may or may not like.  My sister had a huge registry and that didn’t deter people from buying things not on the registry.

So, although we prefer money, we are playing it safe by building a decent sized registry so people will be more inclined to buy off the registry than something random we don’t want or like.  People who wnat to give cash will always give cash regardless of registry options.

I think including a link to honeyfund.com or something similar would be fine on a website, but I’d also recommend a traditional registry as well because you’ll likely have guests who aren’t comfortable with cash/money gifts.  Have you considered a registry at somewhere like REI or Amazon? That will give you more options. 

As for the cash/checks– deal with it. Just get a nice card box, and if you’re worried about it, get a locking one, and on your way to the honeymoon stop off at the bank asap.  Another option is to have an opaque box (like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/90597013/diy-wedding-card-box-kit-to-make-your?ref=sr_gallery_6&ga_includes%5B%5D=tags&ga_search_query=wedding+card+box&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery) and have a family member empty it throughout the day and store them in your getaway vehicle to keep them safe.

I think it depends on the normal for your area. If honeymoon registries have become common place where you live then go for it. But if you come from somewhere thats very traditional then just register for things you like.
