I think that honeymoon budget is quite important. For (edit for TOS violation) to Cayman Islands. But the tickets are the cheapest. As for me, it's more important to spend money on activities and not on tickets. It's the best resort we found. Moreover, it has magnificent views. And there are a lot of things to do. What we love the most is that Cayman Islands offer the best scuba diving in the Caribbean. Given the triumvirate of islands boasts a unique dive site for every single day of the year – and this isn’t just marketing speak – it’s easy to believe them.
I think it kind of depends upon your situation. Most of the people coming to our wedding are close family members and friends. They either understand that we just need money, if anything, and have everything we need or they wouldn't be able to afford anything anyway. However, other people I know it would horribly offend the people coming to their wedding. Maybe they care maybe they don't. It's your choice.I set up a honeyfund (I'm a greedy horrible person omg!) However, I know most people will send/bring cash/checks. They charge a small fee but what do you think is happening when you buy things at a store? Why register at all? Why is it ok to register at Macy's of Crate and Barrel as opposed to on Amazon where it is cheaper? I also said not to feel obligated to bring anything. I meant it. That might seem rude to some...but at least I'm not freaking out on a forum over a question.
At a physical store, you don't buy 12 plates and only keep 11. A honeyfund site keeps a portion of the money. I've never understood people that are okay with wasting money. Why would I as a guest give $100 to a honeyfund when you are only going to get $95. I would be much better off to give you cash or a cheque where you keep it all.
The only time a cash donation site is acceptable is for a true emergency where organizing donations would otherwise be unmanageable. I have a friend who lost everything in a fire and while I wasn't super happy knowing the site was taking a portion of my money, we raised over $25000 in a matter of days that likely would have taken a lot longer and may not have happened at all.
