I am using honeyfund as well. We are putting a little blurb on the website: "while your presence is present enough, for those of you who'd still like to give a gift, please visit our honeyfund website to make our honeymoon wishes come true" or something like that.

My fiance and I live together in a small one bedroom apartment. We have no plans to move into a house until at least 6 months to a year after the wedding (hopefully!). We are also paying for the wedding ourselves....basically we will need money after the wedding and have no room to store stuff that we might use in a bigger house. I know we could upgrade a few things, but I don't want to register for stuff like that, I like finding that kind of stuff on a whim on my own. We have made it be known that traveling to Mexico would be the ultimate gift from a guest, but of course people want to give gifts. I don't get how people think its slightly tacky but proper to ask for 2000 dollar mattress but not cash (in a much smaller amount). I mean, we know how much you spent on us when you buy the toaster that we registered for right? Whenever my dad sends a birthday card, he says my gift is inside in my favorite color: green. I don't think its tacky, I think thats awesome, just what I really wanted and needed!! We registered for romantic dinners, excursions, a furniture fund, and even charities in Puerto Vallarta to donate to, so we did not specifically ask for money only I also made it so if something cost say 100 dollars I would request ten $10.00 contributions that could be divided up among people.
Anyway, my MOH and bridesmaids are throwing me a bridal shower soon. Has anyone had a bridal shower using a honeyfund registry? Any fun creative ideas on how to do this? What if people just brought cards that said what they purchased like, "I hope you all enjoy a romantic beach dinner on us". or am I just totally crazy?
