Honestly I feel uncomfortable putting together a plain registry, but since Fiance and I are young and haven’t lived together long-term, it would be nice to get some home-related items as we’ll be in his first condo. But for me, the wedding rings are our gifts to one another, and I would just feel wrong if somebody else had purchased them. As for a honeymoon, we chose to have our wedding a year sooner, with the generous financial help of our families, so we’ve elected not to have a honeymoon and will likely have one during the winter or my spring break (his office also gets super busy in summer and he needs to be there).

I would still feel pretty uncomfortable with being given a gift toward my honeymoon, but at the same time I’m taking getting married as an opportunity to learn how to graciously accept gifts. I’m awful at accepting gifts, it makes me so nervous, and so I’m working on that 🙂 I guess it’s the thought that counts, and if someone were to say ‘this is for your honeymoon’ even if I didn’t have a registry, I would thank them and do with it as they asked, just honour the thought behind it.

@littlemisst08:  It just reinforces the most annoying notion that the wedding ring is always a given. It’s not. It is a beautiful thing to be able to have but it is first off, not required to be married, not the most important requirement of getting married, and I don’t know a single person that would rationally justify giving another human being money for something so petty in the grand scheme of things. That is just my opinion, to each their own I guess.

MrsBonJovi:  when it comes to how the ring is being paid for, I guess it’s largely based on circumstance. I am entering into an international marriage. My children and I currently live with my parents after being widowed suddenly 2 years ago and then my business partner absconding with over 50% of the business income and inventory, I wasn’t left with a whole lot and I am gradually picking myself back up, however, I wasn’t going to expect them to pay for a second wedding so we are going to have a simple affair, carefully budgeted. Because my fiance is paying the immigration fees, looking for another place to live that will be large enough for a family of 4 (he’s currently in a one bedroom apartment), and paying his portion of the wedding expense, my mother offered to buy my wedding ring that would coordinate with my engagement ring and bake our wedding cake and groom’s cake. We very humbly said “thank you”.

This is very typical during the process of planning Mexican weddings. The husband of course buys the engagement ring, but god parents buy the wedding sets for the newly weds. The purpose is for the couple to start off the marriage with no debt, but a wedding ring registry is a new concept that is definely new.
