I think that should cover it

Anyways, like others have said, I wouldnt add on to the Honeymoon registry. I dont think its appropriate they are asking you, and if it were me I’d respond with some cheesy line about “your presence is presents enough” or however it goes. They’ll figure it out themselves and bring you cash or a generic wedding gift.
Showers are for physical gifts. Period. If you want to be showered with cash, I know a place where you could work.
@skippydarling: Wow. People are so rude. I’m so sorry. I think Honeymoon registries are amazing.
Now, back to handling your honeymoon registry… is there anything that might be nice to have specifically FOR your honeymoon? Like, beach towels, sunscreen, a “travel” care package?? One of my friends got a honeymoon package of goodies (towel, swimsuit coverup, and a cute “nice dinner out” dress) at her shower and it was AWESOME. I was super jealous of her. 🙂 Maybe if they want to contribute to the honeymoon, that would be a cool way of doing it?
I seriously don’t get what people have against people who have honeymoon funds or ask for cash.
I didn’t register for anything (no honeymoon fund, no stores), but as a guest I HATE shopping for gifts off registries. I love when people have honeymoon funds because I have a feeling they’ll enjoy it way more than a crystal pitcher or something like that.
Maybe just acknowledge on your website that someone was very generous, and because of that generosity you decided to upgrade your honeymoon and add a couple more things?
I don’t know what site your Honeymoon registry is through, but I know some guests prefer the CC option. To avoid insulting your guest that bought the whole registry, what about adding a line along the lines of “Keep the honeymoon going! give give us a date night idea for our first months as newly weds!” And then provide x number of options for $x dollars.
I would just tell people exactly what we’ve all said on the previous thread “I am so grateful that some very generous person bought out the registry and I’d hate for him/her to feel like I was “lessening” the gift by adding more for others to buy. I’m really grateful for your generosity, but we don’t want to step on anyone’s toes by adding more to that particular registry!” Maybe they’ll just buy you some champagne or something to take on your trip!
Do you have more you want to add? If so, I say go for it! Obviously if people are asking about it they don’t think it’s “rude”! For us the honeymoon is really going to be a once in a lifetime thing so we are trying to pack our honeymoon with activities so I’m thinking you can probably find more things you would like to do, unless you plan on relaxing more 🙂 I also think that it was very kind of someone to buy out the entire registry but I don’t really understand why they would feel put off by you adding more things (like other bees suggested).
If there is truly nothing else you would like to add just point them to your other registries.
Yea – Fiance and I were discussing it and our honeymoon is now packed (thanks to the generous gifter) with things to do and to be honest…..we could add more but then the honeymoon might actually get stressful with so much obligated activity
One of the couples wrote us back today and said they’ve got some “ideas” for us and the gift they want to give us. I’m sure it’s honeymoon related and they’re a super creative couple so I’m excited for what they have in store.
Some of you people are crazy!!!
I didn’t have a honeymoon fund but I don’t know what is so upsetting about them?
Showers are asking for gifts. Registries are asking for specific gifts. Did you all not register at all? I hope not with your attitudes! Who cares if she’s saying she would like 4 hand towels or 1 couples massage? It’s up to the person buying the gift to determine what they think is a good gift choice. Having a honeymoon fund as an option is allowing guests to have more options.
