    I can accept that honeymoon registries are becoming more common and less taboo. Putting money on display doesn’t seem so awesome.

    The picture reminds me of the “help raise money for the little league team” jars at the dry cleaners.

    I don’t see a problem with it and I don’t think its rude. They don’t have to contribute if they don’t want to but its there for those who do want to. More than half our guests didn’t give us a gift though so I just see ANY gift / registry or honeymoon fund as EXACTLY THE SAME THING. There if they WANT to use it, but not required.

    Absolutely, positively rude. If I saw one of these at a wedding, I’d probably suffer from a self induced seizure caused by rolling my eyes with such force. Please don’t do it. Just… don’t.

    In Mexico there’s a tradition where after the 1st dance, guests an dance with the bride and groom, but they have to attach money on the dress/tuxido with a needle for they honeymoon.

    I dont want people putting needles in my dress or his tuxedo, so… i guess i’ll put a jar or bowl instead

    I voted rude. I think it’s offputting and shows a lack of class. I also don’t think it’s appropriate for adults to be asking guests for tips at their wedding. If they want to give you money, they will.

    Just from the thread title I knew this would be something rude.. I’d be so put off by this, I’d probably resent giving them anything at all. How presumptuous and a certain word starting with ‘t’.

    @leannamari3: I think it probably depends on if this sort of thing is common where you are (region, culture, whatever). That being said, I have never seen this before so I would personally be taken aback by it – I wouldn’t say I would necessarily find it rude, but it may come across as gift-grabby since most people have already brought a gift/card to the wedding and this would appear to be a secondary solicitation for money.  I do understand though that in some places this is totally common and so guests familiar with it may not think anything of it, so I think this is a case of knowing your guests/audience.

    I would not be mad or anything if someone had one, no ones forcing you to contribute. But its up to you. If its all of your close family and friends, Im sure they would be glad to help out. Its almost like a dollar dance.
