Registering and Gifts
Moving abroad immediately after wedding and can't take stuff with us....
As the subject line says, we are moving abroad a week after our wedding and can't really take much with us, therefore we don't want any physical gifts for our wedding. We really don't want cash either- we just want people to come to our wedding and have fun. Anyway, several of our guests have contacted our parents to ask what they should do for gifts and our parents have gently told them that cash is probably the best bet. Some of our friends have suggested that we should put together a "registry" on our wedding website so that people can have an idea of what we might be spending their cash on rather than blindly giving us cash. For example, we came up with a list of a handful of appliances, bikes, and camping equipment. Do you think this "registry" is trashier than just leaving it up to people to give us cash? Is it nicer for people to have an idea of what their cash is going towards?
