Don’t register and have parents spread the word.

I personally don’t feel it’s tasteful to put a mention to gifts on an invitation, though I know many people disagree.  I would spread the word and maybe register at a place like amazon or do a honeymoon registry.

Register at wishpot.com or http://www.myregistry.com. You can register for monetary amoutns there. MyRegistry charges a small fee but if it’s money that you need, it’s a better way to ask for it.

I would think it would be okay to post it on your wedding website and not put it on the invitation.

You can do at home cards and put information on your website, “after the wedding the couple will reside in Another Country.”

I would put it on your wedding website and not on the invitation.  There is no tasteful way to put it on an invitation, etiquette wise, so just make sure people spread the word.

I wouldn’t put information on the invitation. IF you have a wedding website, thats where it should go and be sure close friends and family can spread the word. Chances are people will realize your situationand will get you cash. Keep in mind that it is inevitable that some will get you a gift, so be understanding and gracious toward them. If its something you can live without, return it and get cash.

Also, I’m not sure if its worth opening a registry just to request monetary donations… people can get the point without one.
