Registering for gifts? That is one of the most fun parts of your engagement (besides cupcake tasting of course). In the past, the couple to-be always registered at one or two big department stores. After the wedding, they were well stocked in towels, flatware, and gravy boats. But what many couples really wanted was cold hard cash for that dream honeymoon or a down payment for a new home.
The good news is that asking for money is now becoming a very accepted practice. In fact, Jim and Pam did just that for their recent marriage on the hit show “The Office”.
With a new company called FundBunch, it can be practical and easy for your guests. Couples can easily create their own personalized website to securely accept contributions from friends and family. You get to post a picture of yourself and write a personalized message to your guests. They can even post positive messages to your site! How cool is that?
Guess what I'd like to save for? Hint: A lifetime supply of a small coveted sweet treat.
