Three Important Reasons to Use a Wedding Cash Gift Registry

Wedding Cash Gift Registry | Photo Credit: Nuno DuarteAs we reach this new digital age, the concept surrounding wedding registries has changed for the better. Here are three great reasons why couples really benefit from signing up for a wedding cash gift registry.

 When More Stuff Is Not What You Need

Without an online wedding registry, couples may find themselves receiving gifts from selected stores that they don’t want or need. Rather than dealing with the hassle of returning items in exchange for store credit, a wedding cash gift registry allows guests to contribute towards a variety of gifts.

An online cash registry allows couples to use money towards things beyond that kitchen appliance or television set. Friends and family will be able to contribute towards honeymoon activities or a down payment on a car or house; pretty much anything not listed in online stores.

You’re Never Stuck With Any Particular Gift

Couples that find themselves tired of the latest trends and have already placed a trendy gift on a registry list will be able to use that cash for something else. For example, high thread count bed linens were attractive for their softness but ultimately rejected by consumers because the cloth didn’t allow the body to breathe easily and caused many couples an uncomfortable night’s sleep. If a couple had heard about that issue and already added high thread count linens to their gift registry, they can easily use the cash later for something they really want.

Reinventing The Cash Gift

The cash gift has had a blemished history of feeling impersonal. Although it might be a break from tradition, it is common for the guest to want to give more meaningful gifts. An online wedding registry allows each guest to see what they are contributing towards. Whether they’re helping out with a newly renovated kitchen or a funding an exciting honeymoon excursion, guests will feel happy knowing they have contributed towards something desirable instead of guessing what the couple needs.

With a wedding cash gift registry you can remove the awkwardness of asking for cash while still using the money in any way you want. Wed&Wish provides guests a wish list without couples being restricted in what they can ask for. Check out an example wish list here.


Unique Wedding Registry Ideas

Taking The Plunge

So you’ve decided to take that step, you’re going to get married. Congratulations, we’re truly happy for you and hope that you’re feeling wonderful! What we don’t wish upon you, or anyone else, is the stress that can come with all the planning that comes with and surrounds a wedding. What we would like is ease and simplicity in at least one part of the whole experience and so we offer you Wed&Wish.


Easy To Use and Access

Wed&Wish is a unique wedding registry, aimed at giving you exactly what you want, without any hassle. Guests locate your registry on the website, select their choice from available options and make a payment through PayPal, an industry leader in payment transactions. It comes immediately to your account – as cash. If you’ve never used PayPal ask a friend, it is exceedingly easy to use. That’s it, withdraw funds from PayPal whenever you wish, however you like with no hidden costs for doing so.

Being an internet gift registry, most everyone can access it easily. This internet service can be used by anyone who can open a webpage. No more concern about local outlets, communication times, or shipping. Suddenly the only transportation concern you have is people, and not trunk space or presentation.


No Restrictions on Gifts

If you’re concerned about actually using Wed&Wish, don’t be. It’s free for you to register, set-up, and use. The costs of the service are paid for by the guests, and it will most commonly be a five dollar fee, which both you and your guests will agree is worth it, being able to do it from home, while knowing they’ll be sending exactly the right gift. Site navigation is effortless as well, with no restrictions on what sort of gifts you can ask for. Who wants to be restricted to certain products, brands, or availability? This is your dream, why let a traditional wedding registry muddy the experience?

Just imagine. You sign up with Wed&Wish (free to register), only add what you want, receive the cash with tracking of who donated how much to each gift, and withdraw money at your leisure. If only we could make the rest of your wedding planning this easy!

The Freedom of an Online Honeymoon Registry

Friends are getting married, some already have children and soon it’s going to be your turn. But you don’t want your guests to experience difficulties finding the right gifts.  You want, well, something perfect, that’s all. Dealing with finding a certain items, getting a kiosk clerks attention, or worse looking through a binder of photographs to choose gifts is not perfection. Why is any of that necessary when most everyone has a smart-phone in their pocket or access to a computer? Introducing, an intelligent and well-designed online gift registry.

Beyond Antiquated Traditions

Wed&Wish makes a few departures from the antiquated gift registry methods to create a truly enjoyable experience. Most obvious of the changes was moving the gift registry to an online format. Everyone with access to the internet can get to your registry. People with desktops, smart-phones, even WebTV users (if they still exist) can find your gift list. This clearly reduces difficulties drastically; those travelling, far away, or just in the boonies can all log on easily.

The Creativity of Cash

The next difference is in the cash registry format. While you may select actual products or services to list, your guests will be sending cash. This ensures you get exactly what you want, without any outside interpretation, miscommunication or duplication. Since it is a cash registry, this gives you the freedom to list whatever you like. Anything. You can be as specific as you like, break it down into multiple gifts, or one large package that everyone chips in on to make it happen. If you’d like a trip, you can list it as one giant package gift with smaller contribution allotments, or separate it into flight, hotel, massage, food and entertainment… you’re limited only by your own creativity.

Secured Transactions With PayPal

As proof of the commitment to an easy pleasurable experience, Wed&Wish uses PayPal for payment processing. Your friends and family select which gift and an amount, and PayPal does the rest, depositing it in your account. It doesn’t make any detours and no-one tries to hold your money hostage. PayPal takes their standard fees and directs the balance straight to you. Once in your account it’s your money and you’re free to spend it as you wish. Just have fun! Isn’t technology great?

A Great Wedding Fund Provides Wedding Ideas For Modern Couples

Wedding Fund | Wedding Ideas | Photo Credit: AlphaOnline wedding registries like Wed&Wish provide the perfect opportunity for modern couples to get the gifts they really want. Most modern couples already have much of the typical home goods that a normal registry provides and may be looking to downsize with the merging of two households into one.

This is where a great wedding fund can really enhance a modern wedding. Instead of struggling to find a registry that is perfect, or signing up for multiple registries and confusing your guests, couples can ask for gifts like down payments, air travel and destination honeymoon funds.

Honeymoon Fund With No Upfront Fees Or Credit Cards Required

Photo Credit: Andrew Morrell | Wed&Wish Honeymoon RegistriesA New Twist On Honeymoon Funds

A popular article on CNN travel talks about the ins and outs of a honeymoon registry and explores the non-traditional service that allows couples to ask guests to chip in on much more exciting gifts than the standard wedding registry provides. Instead of a new mixer, guests can chip in on a balloon ride or cruise!

The article makes some good points about different types of honeymoon registries, like the fact that some are booked through travel agents that charge a fee, not to mention that for some cruises and hotels a credit card must be used to make the reservation, and the cost can’t be refunded. If the couple was planning on going anyway, it seems like less of a problem, but it’s good to be aware that there is no guarantee that guests will cover the costs.

There is a type of cash gift registry that offers no upfront fees or credit cards to get couples on their way to that Maui Beach house rental or Cruise to Grand Cayman that the article failed to mention. They are not a free service but the small fees they take come out of the gift amounts the guests pay when they choose to purchase a gift through the couple’s registry website, meaning there is no bill to pay at the end for the couples which is a nice touch.

Wed&Wish is a unique service in the cash registry industry because they are able to offer couples a measure of security that other registries can’t. They offer an added layer of security, meaning that they never touch the couple’s money. Unlike other registries that hold the couples “gifts” in their bank accounts before forwarding them to the couples (minus fees), Wed&Wish never holds any of their customers money in their accounts. They simply get permission to extract a fee when the money is on the way from a guest’s purchase to the couple’s account. This all happens mid-transaction thanks to PayPal.

Most people are never aware that companies are holding their funds and it can take days or weeks to receive their gifts. With Wed&Wish the gifts are deposited instantaneously and are immediately available for the couple to spend.

Another great thing about these types of registries is that there are no credit cards required. Couples can ask for any gift they want. Take a honeymoon cruise for example. Couples can name the gift 7 Day Bahamas Cruise. There is no need to specify the date. The total amount of the cruise can then be split into affordable gift amounts of $80.00 to $100.00 each and couples can set the amount of times a guest can choose to buy that gift.

Those that have never researched these types of sites will be in for a pleasant surprise. These types of services are becoming quite popular for modern couples who tend to be a bit less traditional. It does afford couples some exciting gift ideas and hey, it never hurts to ask right?
