    It’s cute, but I don’t like it- I want to be able to thank our guests for any gifts we receive. Reminds me too much of the tip jars at Starbucks.

    I like it for spare change/bills at the house, but I wouldn’t put it out at a reception.  Like PP, I think it seems like a tip jar if you do that.

    @sarahbabs:  Don’t care for it at all.  I’ll be thankful for whatever I get.  I shouldn’t have to set up something in hopes my family and friends will pay for my honeymoon.  If I couldn’t afford one, then I wouldn’t go.

    I don’t want to offend anyone, but I personally think they are very tacky.  I wouldn’t put one at my wedding, and I wouldn’t put money in one at someone elses’ wedding..  I think it’s even worse when it’s somewhere like the bar. Then I would think the bartenders would get less tips, because the extra dollar someone might bring up to the bar to tip, might go in the Honeymoon Fund instead.

    Erm… I’m not a fan.

    I’m personally very hush-hush about money. Don’t ask for it, don’t set up a tip jar looking thing at your reception. Set out a discreet card box or just don’t have a registry, people will get the hint. I just think blatantly asking for people to give you money is too much.

    we actually have a Wedding Fund jar that I bought at CLAIRES of all places in our bedroom, that we toss our change and dollars from our pocket at the end of the day into.

    Having one of these at the Reception is SO tacky!!

    I don’t care either way. I’ve seen this and saw it again this morning and wondered when it was going to show up on the bee haha

    I think it’s cute to put next to where you put your keys when you come home.  At a reception?  Oh, no.  I’d laught, whisper something about how rude you were to the person sitting next to me, and NOT put any money in it.  I really don’t bring much cash to weddings, anyway.

    If I saw one of these at a wedding reception, I wouldn’t jump on the “tacky” wagon at all.  I’d even most likely contribute a few bucks and my spare change to it!

    Take my opinion with a grain of salt however, this is coming from a girl who enjoys dollar dances at all the weddings I’ve been to. 😛

    FWIW, I wouldn’t have one at our reception.  Our money is something I find to be very private, and I’d rather not display to our entire family how much we have even if it’s for something silly like a honeymoon jar.

    oh boy! i have a feeling the etiquette police will be all over this as “rude” and “tacky”… i wouldnt bother me to see this at a wedding, and it would be seriously awesome if i was handed a magical jar full of honeymoon money, but i would not do it myself just because it would feel like it was too much on our guests after travel/hotel/gifts/etc

    Don’t like it, at all.  Wouldn’t do it.  I’d be embarrassed to do so.

    SOOO tacky.

    It’s almost worse than that thread where someone said the bride and groom bought their booze beforehand overcharged to make a profit off their self-stocked bar.
