Wow, not only is that tacky, it's also VERY unsafe. Why would ANYONE put their bank account information out there in black and white for anyone to steal or gain access?
That is ridiculous ... and that is also why there are honeymoon registries.
We have a honeymoon registry (only my sister has used it, though) and AAA Vacations also set up an account if anyone wanted to contribute -- but no one has.
I think we will likely get a lot of money for gifts at our AHR ... but it would have been nice to have to help get things paid for ahead of time. lol
Either way, we really are not in need of anything, so we have asked for no gifts, regardless. We only registered b/c people kept asking -- so I tried to give different options (Honeymoon Registry, AAA Vacations account, Macys, Bed Bath and Beyond, and Home Depot).
