Where are you getting your bags from?
We just finished playing around with our honeymoon registry after an all-out brawl with my parents about registering at all. My Mom is really passive about most things! I am shocked she got all up in arms about us having a no gift policy!
Anyway, let me know what you think...
She and I compromised on the wording on our website, directing guests here...
This registry has been the toughest part of our wedding planning. First and foremost, because we are laden with your love and support and don't need much more. And also because we feel so grateful that so many of you are coming all the way to Maui to be with us on our special day.
We honestly considered trying to have a "no gifts" policy, but after speaking to some of our family and friends, realized that wasn't realistic. Let it be clear that your presence and/or support is the best gift that we could receive and that no more is expected.
As two "thirty-somethings" that have combined two households of "stuff", we currently have one (or in some cases, two) of everything we could possibly need to furbish a home. We are both repetitively told how difficult we are to buy gifts for due to our love--OK, LIZA'S love--of impulse buying:) Therefore, what we would really love an opportunity for is adventure and amazing memories.
In lieu of tangible goods, we suggest donating to our honeyfund. We have put together the most amazing honeymoon on Kauai and Oahu complete with some incredible adventures that we are planning to celebrate our new life together. If you would like to treat us to something that we have planned, it would be greatly appreciated!
And here is the registry site...
The thing I struggled with the most was trying to guests to understand that we weren't looking for them to provide us with a free honeymoon. We are planning on doing all of these activities regardless of "help" from our friends and family. It is all budgeted... Not sure how to get that across!
PS! I FINALLY posted a pic, just for you Illinois girls. Hee hee! Bet you can't guess where it was taken:)
