When do you normally make your registry? We have been living together for almost 2 years, so w...
So my FH will be 40 this year, and I'm 32... we've got stuff coming out of our ears at our own individual homes, and as most people do our age we have all the gadgets and gizmoes we like already.. I'm wondering how to ask people to just give us cash, or "gift" to us the money we want to use toward our home purchase... is that tacky?
I've gotten all sorts of mixed responses so far amongst my family, and although Patrick and I have registered at traditional places like Target and Dillards, what we really want is to (a) buy our own home and (b) have an awesome time on our honeymoon.. We are pretty frugal with our money and would really like to do something like go on some really cool adventures and "splurge" while we are vacationing on our honeymoon, and be in the position to purchase our home as easiest as possible.
So I will throw it out to you: Is it taboo to just ask for cash or set up one of those honeymoon fund registries and forgoe all the household stuff we could really just buy on our own? We of course will want some things for our new home, but we've got to be able to purchase it first!
Let me know what you think, and what sites you've used if you have personally done a honeymoon registry for your big day.
