Has anyone ever did a cash fund on their registry?

    I did mine for zola!

    just be mindful that there is a fee for every transaction.

    I think zola has the smallest fee at 2.5%

    This is a very divisive topic, and many people, especially those in older generations, find them tacky. I personally think they're pointless. They all charge a fee for the pleasure of being an unnecessary middle man. At least in my area, 99% of people give the couple cash or a check in a card as a wedding gift, even if they have a registry. We had a wedding registry, and only 1 person out of our guest list brought a physical gift. Every other person gave us cash or a check (and 2 people actually Venmoed us lol). I've never brought a physical gift to a wedding, always opting to put a check inside a card. The registries are usually used for the shower. If you want cash, I would just skip the registry altogether or create a small one of physical gifts. People will get the hint and there won't be any fees.

    We used Zola as well, and we did a cash fund, I couldn’t think of anything that we needed since two years ago we purchased a home, I also added blinds to the registry as well.


    Hope this helps, good luck!

    Awesome. We are both military and won’t be buying a house for another five years and that’s when we will do a registry for a house warming

    Yes, so I was told also if you don’t register anywhere people will catch the hint and bring cash to the wedding.

    We used the Knot's website and fund. I don't think there was much of a fee, if any. It might have been a small one on the guest's ends...

    It worked very well for us, because we could transfer any time, as opposed to being limited to a few times.

    We are using The Knot's cash fund registry. I've heard that people don't really mind paying for the fees, only *if* they were going to gift us a physical gift to start with, since a gift would have taxes and it would be the same thing.
    And I think with covid, with a lot of the guests not being able to make it to the wedding to give us a card or cash gift in real life, they liked that they could send us a little something.

    You know what Jenny, you are absolutely right!!! The small fee that they will pay is the same or maybe even less they would pay with taxes. Honestly, I would gladly give someone cash because it takes the stress of looking for a gift away.

    Honeyfund has a tiny fee too. It was really easy. We did that and a small registry at two retail shops for anyone uncomfortable giving money.
