Let’s face it, while the fertility statue from Fiji that your Mother-in-law is thinking about giving you as a wedding present would be, um, interesting, you’d really rather have the cash.
Eventastic has tons of non-gift related features to make your wedding planning a snap but probably no other single feature will be as useful as the cash gifting option.
As you’ll see , asking for cash gifts is easy and it will be fun & satisfying for your guests.
With Eventastic you can choose to have cash gifting in conjunction with a wedding gift registry with items from any store anywhere or you can convert your wedding registry to cash gifts only. When you set up your cash gift registry, if you wish you can leave a general message to set the tone and also an individual message explaining each cash gift item that you have listed. This way people will understand each request on a personal level. If you are having a larger wedding make sure you add a lot of ideas thus giving guests greater choices. They’ll wish they had an option like this when they got married!
Many couples getting married nowadays are already well set up with household items but they could use a hand with the cost of other things like putting in those hardwood floors or new counter tops. You could even have guests contributing towards a down payment for your first home together, honeymoon or home renovations. If this is a second marriage you could put money towards a larger home for your blended family or list a registered educational savings plan for your children’s future!
Cash gifts are a great option for destination weddings where gifts just aren’t practical. Your guests could contribute towards honeymoon activities like hang gliding, a day at the spa or extending the vacation. No matter what kind of honeymoon you have planned you can cash out early and use the money for your trip.
If you are feeling particularly blessed consider stating you will give a portion of the cash gifts to a charity that is dear to your heart.
Remember that even if you choose to have a cash only main wedding registry, you can have other individual gift registries on your site for other wedding events like showers.
The possibilities are virtually unlimited and cash given this way could not be more personal. Your guests will be pleased to know they are giving what you really want, making it a wonderfully meaningful gift. They will have a real sense of pride and ownership in making your life together the happiest it can be.
We hope this has been helpful.
