@alheur:  I think it would be very practical then to look into one of those sites where you can gift funds for honeymoons or a future home or whatever.  Knowing your situation I wouldn;t think twice about putting my wedding gift in those areas.  Lots of couples do this and they aren;t in your situation.  I can put myslef in your shoes though because my Fiance is in the military and we were thinking we would be moving to a tiny island too, and I was trying to get rid of stuff i didnt need. lol

The best thing to do if you don’t want to risk offending anyone is to have a small registry for things you can use (like you should be replacing your pillows yearly… so you could ask for those… sheets, towels, a few upgrades on the kitchen items you do have…could you use a better frying pan? a new toaster?), tell your parents you are hoping for cash and let them tell those who ask, and then trust your guests to be smart enough to put 2 and 2 together. 

You really should not directly ask for money. That’s an etiquette no-no.
