Is it appropriate to skip the registry and ask guests to contribute to our honeymoon?
Entirely. Look at sites such as thebigday.com, honeyluna.com, and honeyfund.com, which allow guests to fund aspects of your trip (surfing lessons, a candlelit dinner, a hotel suite). Guests feel as if they are buying you a memory instead of a household item. Of course, some friends and family members may not be comfortable with this option, so create a registry―however small―for them.
