Honeymoon gift register
As some of you know, my h2b and I currently live in New Zealand. We are getting married in the UK before returning to New Zealand for our honeymoon.
We have decided to ask our guests to contribute to a honeymoon fund, instead of giving us gifts. We couldn't carry gifts back to NZ with us, plus we have been living together for a while so have everything we need. However, with the huge cost of a UK wedding, and the fact that we are paying for it with New Zealand dollars, and having to include flights and UK accommodation in the budget, we are really hoping that our guests will be happy to donate some money to a honeymoon for us.
I'm not sure how to word it to people, as it seems quite cheeky! Plus I'm not sure how to organise it practically. I thought about asking htem to pay it into my parents bank account or something, and then asking my parents to transfer it....but seems complicated and unromantic! Ha ha!
Then I remembered reading about websites where you can have a honeymoon fund, or 'wishing well'?? Can anyone offer advice on this? Does anyone have any idea how they work, and whether it would matter about the different currency?
