Is It Really OK to Register for Cash? How Can We Make It Feel More Personal?

Absolutely! Guests love getting you gifts you want. They also love when they’re able to get you something that could remind you of them.

Two tips:

  1. Make cash an option gift. Pair your cash fund with a more traditional wedding registry. Create a standard registry filled with more traditional home, decor, and travel items, even if it’s just a few things. Then add a few cash fund options to round it out. This way, guests who really want to get you something physical, still have options. With Joy, you can easily add a mix of physical gifts and cash funds into a single registry.
  2. Create smaller, more personalized cash funds. Guests will love contributing to specific things and experiences you two care about.  Instead of creating a “Honeymoon Fund”, create smaller funds like “Tokyo Tour”, “Day Trip to Nara”, “Dinner at Sukiyabashi Jiro”, “A Visit to the Ghibli Museum”, and “Sake Tasting.” That way, your guest can contribute to something specific, and you can write them a thank you about the experience!
