Asking for cash of any kind is rude. If you don;t need household items, then register for fun stuff.

I also agree asking for cash is rude.  I would simply not register.  A good friend had a tiny reception, asked guests not to get her gifts as it’s her 2nd marriage and doesnt have any need for household items. 

She was mostly gifted $$.

I know you said you don’t have space but could any of the stuff you own need an upgrade.  That’s what I did for my wedding registry.  I went for an upgrade of stainless steel looking appliances.

And yeah, there’s really not any nice way to ask for money. 

Or, what about starting a honeymoon registry? They can pay for parts of your honeymoon.

People want to buy you gifts. If you don’t register, you will receive a ton of stuff that you don’t want and can’t return anywhere. So register for fun stuff that you want so you don’t have to find a home for it elsewhere.

Folks in general find honeymoon registries as equally offensive as cash registries and prefer that you pay for your own honeymoon that you can afford yourselves.
