My fiancee and I are both closer to 40, live in a one bedroom apartment and have A LOT of stuff. We definitely don't need more, that's for sure. So instead of a traditional store registry we set up a honeymoon registry. That way, we can plan our dream honeymoon and our friends and family can contribute to it by purchasing various pieces of it. You can break the large price items into smaller units to make it affordable for everyone.
I did my research and decided to go with honeyfund.com because there are no fees and they don't take a percentage of the money. You can set up a paypal account for people to pay with credit cards (paypal charges 3.5%, which is still better than the 7-10% of most honeymoon registries). The site is pretty easy to set up and they offer sample honeymoons for ideas that you can pull from for your registry. They also allow links to items if you would like to show your guests directly some of the nifty things you will be doing. I can't wait to see what people think of our historical trip to Salem where we will be staying in a carriage house next to a castle!
