So I'm reviewing everyone's response to the poster who asked about how to/if she can ask for just money "in a cute way" instead of registries. Everyone seemed to confirm what I suspected - that it's never okay to ask for money, it's best just to register for a few small things and let people assume money would be most useful.
My fiancé and I are in the same boat, but instead of already having everything we need, we're trying to get rid of most of our stuff, as we're moving from the Midwest to London, perhaps indefinitely. What would actually be very helpful are IKEA giftcards, since there are locations both here and where we're moving. Is there any way to ask for this? Do all the same rules apply in our situation too?
Thanks in advance for your insight!
