    Ok.....this is all terrible. But:

    "Send personalized, handwritten thank you cards directly from your computer."

    I've found a whole new way to be sad about the world.

    But guys, they let you track who has hasn't opened it so you can B List the rude guests who didn't event bother to look at your bucket list-cash registry (sarcasm font not available on iPhones.....maybe I'll register for that!).

  • The fee is 6% and you can either absorb it (so you get $94 of the $100) or it can be added on to your guest's gift so their $100 now costs them $106.

    I would probably flip my shit if I had to pay a 6% processing fee to give someone a gift (granted I would never do this anyway, if someone had one of these I'd ignore it)

  • Isn't this exactly the same as a honeyfund? At least this one is more honest about what it is...?

  • What bothers me is that at least with a honeyfund the "gift" is masked as wedding related, i.e., dinner on the beach.

    This can be masked as anything (even though it's still just money so in that sense it is the same). They're not even trying to make it seem like this is wedding-related. It's things like, "fancy coffee," "gas," "books." While these can make lovely gifts (though gas...really?) that's never what I would give to someone for their wedding.

    Did you see the sample registry?

    "After three weddings in three cities, our dream honeymoon is to travel Europe by van. 8,976 miles, 30 bottles of wine, 60 coffees and ZERO arguments about directions!"

    So they are asking for money for a honeymoon after a wedding tour.  I can't even. . . 
  • "Envelope is a beautiful way to ask for money on your big day"


    at least is it bold right on the first page of the site what it is! a 6% fee wow outrageous!


    "It can be awkward asking your friends and family for money as a gift. So we've created Envelope to tackle this delicate issue. It’s simple: your guests contribute to any item on your registry and we transfer you the cash... oh, and we made it beautiful too."

    no its rude, not delicate or awkward..

    Oh and

  • But they made it BEAUTIFUL!!! 

    Ugh... so ridiculous. And very random price points... I clicked on cheese, and put in 2 grams, which equalled $2. Pretty sure fancy cheese costs way more than that.

    Is it really $1/gram? Because that would be $448/pound. I would like to know what kind of cheese this is, or if there is a ridiculous upcharge for the service fee. :)
  • It's $1 a mile as well and you can only buy in blocks of 10 miles....

    Oh you're right. My math is WAY off (I should just stay away from mental math questions... :P). But yes, on the site it's $1/gram. Perhaps that's generic/simple numbers for the purpose of showing the site off?
