I'm new to posting on the knot but thought I'd give it a whirl. We recently moved to Seattle from Wisconsin for work. We decided to have our wedding back home so that we wouldn't have to burden our friends and family with spending a bunch of money to attend a wedding in Seattle. My question is, what is your advice on gifts/registries? We can't afford to ship all our gifts from WI to WA, but at the same time there's the whole 'asking for money' etiquette debate. Should we register with online stores and ask specifically to only ship to our place in WA? But that leaves a logistical nightmare as we live in an apartment and we aren't home most of the day - and the doorbell doesn't work, ha. The reason I ask you guys is because you'll be brutally honest. My groom wants to just ask for money as it's the most convenient. I'd ask friends/family but I'm sure they will be amicable but that's just because they are friends and family! Thanks for the advice!
