Anyone doing an "alternative registry"
Posted 24 February 2009 - 10:10 PM
FI and I are planning on purchasing a house this summer, and have found a company that offers a "Bridal Mortgage Registry." Same thing as the honeymoon registry, except the money goes into a high interest account with ING.
Has anyone heard of this? Is anyone doing the honeymoon registry? We are tossed up between the two, but aren't planning on taking a honeymoon until late 2010, if not 2011. (We're heading down a week before the wedding for a pre-DW honeymoon)
I'm not really sure if the Bridal Mortgage is appropriate... thoughts?

We aren't doing a mortgage one but I didn't even know they existed! We are doing a charity registry but we have registered for gifts at more "normal" venues. We've been telling our moms and BMs and such to tell people to donate to our charity but for the more traditional folk we have the store registry.
Personally, I think register for what you want. If you want to do the mortgage registry do it, but also register for a traditional store so people have a choice of what to do.

If you only go with the mortgage registry, it might be taken as asking for money. While that may actually be the most useful thing to get, the underlying message/idea may not go over well with some people.

I'm just a little worried that it would offend some of our guests, but in all honesty we'd much rather have money to go toward our house
