I think you’re not supposed to say anything, and then they’ll ask your mom, and she’ll tell them that you just want money…or something.


I don’t really understand how registries work, though…you’re not allowed to say you want gifts, but putting together a registry is fine, but you’re not allowed to say where it is…

@karineh:  I wouldn’t mention the immigration thing at all. Keep it light by saying something like – Our home is furnished and we don’t need anything so if you wish to give a gift of money that would be nice, but just word it a lot better than that.

I don’t think there is a polite way to ask for money. We need to majorly downsize as we both have homes, with fairly new nice things. So we won’t be doing one either. I also wouldn’t paln on budgeting on what you can get back, plan what you can afford and what you want to spend so you don’t end up regretting it.
