there are ways to just open a “cash fund” on reg websites like “myregistry.com” you can name the fund something like “cash for career” or “honeymoon fund” and then maybe explain the situation short and sweet. like… we have all the little trinkets we need, if you feel so inclinded, please contribute to one of our funds! 

then be sure to explain where your honeymoon is what you are planning to do yada yada… people want to know where their mulah is going

 

hope this helps

I agree with Jessoverall.  My fiancé and I are thinking of doing something like this since we’re both in graduate school and honestly have everything for the house already (we’ve lived together for 2.5 years).  But since we’re $120,000+ in debt from grad school, money would be awesome!

Hope this works out for you!  I think a cash registry is the way to go.

I’m not all about the open statement asking for cash.

I would think the cash registry would be a better way to do it.

I wouldn’t mention that you are using this wedding gift to forward your career.  A wedding gift is for both of the couple.  I wouldn’t want to fund this, even if you later end up using it for this purpose.

I am against asking for cash in general.  Guests who want to give cash will.  And there will always be people who will be offended.  Personally, I would never want to risk offending my loved ones for a little bit extra $.  Cash is what a lot of people give as a wedding gift anyway.

@SimplyChic11:  Hmm… I do not like the idea of asking for money regarding your career.  People give money for you AND your fiance to start your new lives TOGETHER.  Not for you to pursue a career.  I think sometimes if you sign up for a honeymoon registry it can be turned into cash?  You’ll have to research it, but I swear I read something like about that on a blog before.

@HappilyEverAfter54: I agree–honeyfund sounds like the way to go in your situation.  We’re using it for a true honeymoon registry, but in the end, you just get the money via Paypal.

Honeyfund +1 here. Why not just honeymoon in LA as well?
