I also registered with wwwhoneymoonwishes.com. I found this site from a post on this site. It is a site you can register for unique items but you get the cash. We registered for things like flowers in our wedding suite and honeymoon suite, spa treatments, snacks in the room, wine in the room, local shows (honeymoon will be in vegas), helicopter tours and other unique items that we will probably do but if someone wants to help out, that is great. I also added a Shopping section that actually lists some unique stores in our area they can go to if they want or give us the money to go to them - they are stores we like to shop at like wine and art stores. If we get money for any of these things, we will make sure they get done because we will probably do it anyway.

Money trees, money poems, multiple registry cards stuck in invitations, bride ransoms, ect......just all scream GREEDY.
There is a great site called ettiquette hell with pages of horror stories dedicated to this and other wedding issues.

We've set up a bank account that guests can contribute to for a downpayment on our house and put a note on our website about it. It's asking for money in a way, but we don't need "stuff" for a house if we don't have one. We ABSOLUTELY don't want gifts and I want to make that very clear because I got more than I could ever want/need from my shower and if people want to give...we would appreciate the money more than anything.
tacky or not it is what it is...they asked and we answered.
