travel wedding and gifts?

Recommended Posts

I am having a destination wedding (like everyone else.) I am having the people who want to go pay their own way. Do I still have a gift registry?

We have one, I had a few people ask about it so we went and put one together. Also you will be having a shower still right? Its handy to have for that as well.

I am so concerned because my fiance and I have been together for 6 years and we don't need any house stuff so we don't know what to register for. PLus I don't want people to feel like they have to purchase anything

I think one way to not make them feel like they have to, is including a sentence or two on your website (if you have one) that says , "we are more concerned with your presence than your presents", but if they want to still get a gift, then I say happy shopping!

I felt the same way at first and didn't want to make a registry - then my MOH told me she would do it for us if we didn't :).. Seriously though, what she said and I guess is true - people are going to get you gifts regardless (esp for a shower or people who can't make it) and wouldn't you rather get things you like than random stuff that you might not even like or want (and usually can't even exchange easily)..

I know some people have done honeymoon registries - I still don't know how I feel about that but it's a thought.. You can register for non-traditional things to - we had some random things on Amazon..

My fiancee and I already had everything we needed because we've lived on our own for quite some time, but we went ahead and registered for things to replace our older things. A new set of pots and pans, new table linens, new coffee machine, new serving dishes, stuff like that. We already have those things, but why not get really nice things :)

I have read many brides who feel this way, and I was one of them. We weren't going to put anything together, but my Mom kept saying well people are going to get you something (especially the people that don't go to our DW) and don't you want to get something you need/want? So we put together our honeymoon registry with Traveler's Joy and a portion of the funds raised through our website will go to Breast Cancer Research Foundation (I posted a thread on this already) - this way they might be still getting us something, but we are also giving back a little too.

And on our website, we did put "your presence is gift enough...that being said, we have had requests for a gift registry" or something to that nature - I copied if from another bride on here
