Honeymoon registry + destination wedding too much?!

Recommended Posts

Urg, I just got my wedding invitations and am all ready to send them out and I completely forgot about a gift registry! I thought that the honeymoon registry would be a good way to do things so that we didnt end up with a bunch of stuff we didnt need since my FI and I already live together... when I ran it by my mom she thought that since we were having a destination wedding already it wouldnt good to ask for people to contribute to a honeymoon since we were already vacationing... kind of excessive she thought. Now I am worried about what to do?! feedback.gif

well here's my two cents ¢¢. hehehe

 

You have already had the invitations printed. Send them out as is. If people ask where you are registered just say "we are already asking a lot for people to join us in Los Cabos and to us that is enough and we didn't want to have to lug back a bunch of gifts so if you are inclined we made a honeymoon registry."

A lot of girls here had both ! I had both and I actually received a lot of money on my registry !! And not only from people who were not coming...

 

I also put my TTD package on there... divided in 15 pieces... the good thing about a honeymoon registry is that you do what you want with it...

I would send them out and not worry about it. If youu want to register somewhere, and you are unsure of registering for the honeymoon, think about registering with a photographer! They tend to be expensive and in the end everyone gets a picture of the two of you so they see what their money was spent on!

I agree.. send them out as is. I am personally against including registry cards in invitations. If people want to know where you are registered, just say like what Jean-marcus mentioned above. Also, let close friends and family know that info as well so they can pass around the word if asked.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
