Ok, one of my contacts was able to give me a suggestion, and I need all of your help. She asked if I had ever heard of honeymoon registries instead of gift registries. I have never heard of this, but it sounds like an ok idea. See, Big T and I already live together and have lived together for the past year and a half. We have all the necessities, and while it would be nice to have shiny new appliances or a set of china that we may never use, or have a place to store for that matter, we would prefer to take our once in a lifetime trip to Ireland. Is that selfish? Would people really pay for a honeymoon registry? I don't want to give the impression that I just want people to give me money. However, I know that people want to get gifts for weddings, and if they are going to spend the money, it should go to something the newlyweds are really going to enjoy and use, right?

I don't know whether to feel guilty about this or if it is really a better option for us. Please give me your opinions. Is this selfish to ask? Thanks!


  1. Honestly, I wouldn't have done it but we married 14 or 15 years ago. Back then it wasn't even ok to put the registry cards in your invites. What do I know? I think it would probably depend a lot on how things are done where you live.

  2. Yeah I agree with Marcia, but then again I will be married 15 years this year. We did how ever put our registry in our invites (guess we are selfish?) But now a days it is your day and you do what and how you wish! There will be some that still want to give a gift but alot will give money anyways! So do what YOU wish cause it's YOUR day and no one elses (see no (space) one....word has imprisoned my brain)!!!
