I have no idea but why don’t you just split up your $75 gift between both to total $150? We have a honeyfund, but did a BB&B registry for the traditionalists on my side of the family (they’re snooty). I have gotten all towels and pans so far, lol, and nobody has contributed to the honeyfund which is kind of sad. So as a person who has one and would prefer cash for the honeymoon, I don’t see why you can’t split it. 🙂 Buy diving for one person for one of the events and then buy diving again for the other person for the other or something.

My opinion? Go get a physical gift for the shower. Showers are for physical gifts. Don’t want physical gifts? Don’t have a shower.

@gonatgo:  I think that’s a very generous gift! Most showers I’ve been to have had smaller gifts ($25-$50 per person). And they’re always physical gifts, so I’m not too clear on how this translates to the honeyfund.

I usually give $50 for showers and $100-$150 for the wedding.

@classyashley:  +1.

Give whatever you like.  It is not polite to demand a specific gift only.

Shower gifts tend to be on the cheaper side, so I’d stick with giving less at the shower and more at the wedding.
