Just give us cash....
Posted 06 January 2009 - 12:39 PM
Since planning our DW we decided to not sign up for a gift registray, since it kinda feels like, my FI and I go to a store and go on a shopping spree of a bunch of useless stuff that are 'nice to haves' but not really needed...
I have been asked a couple times , what do you need.. but how do you say.. 'cash to help pay for the wedding and the AHR' as we are paying for all our costs our selves...
SO to date, I have told people, get us whatever you like.. the choice is yours...
anyone else facing this issue... ?? kinda funny.. in a way.. but I don't want people to think we are being greedy...

You would think that everyone who has been married or even been on their own would just realize how much money is needed for this time in your life, but for some reason I guess folks just want to have a gift to wrap and hand over instead of an envelope.
We have not registered yet, but plan to for a few things. We have not figured out yet how to let people know we need money more than anything. I know it seems rude and greedy, which is why it is so funny to me...because honestly that is all we need!!

You can also set up a registry just like a HM one, but customize it. For example, you can do a "New Home Registry" and people can buy you "kitchen cabinet knobs" or "paint for the living room". It works the same way - they just give you the cash and you buy the knobs or paint.

But.....I was reminded by two of my friends that if you don't register, people will buy you things you don't want or things they think you should have instead of giving you cash. At least if you register for some things, you'll get something you kind of want or need instead of random gifts.
