Wedding registries are commonplace and ARE used for everything from fancy china to high-end bedding. but there’s a whole new level of these registries where couples are registering for stuff they really need, like cash!

Money is useful for buying a house, a car, or planning that honeymoon, and having a honeymoon registry has taken off as the latest hottest option.

In a honeymoon registry, the couple asks wedding guests to help pay for their honeymoon trip. You may be giving cash for the wedding gift anyway, so here’s how to make sure it gets used in the way the couple really wants.
