Cash Wedding Registries That Don’t Feel Icky


Once upon a time, for the cookie-cutter weddings of yore, it was customary to register at places like Macy’s and Crate & Barrel for things like blenders and gravy boats, because there was a likelihood you didn’t yet live with your betrothed and didn’t have your own set of house-things.

But maybe now you do. Or maybe you’re paying for this wedding yourself and could really use the cash instead of another set of candlesticks. Or perhaps you’d rather put some money toward a kick-ass honeymoon or a house. Maybe all of the above.

Whatever your reasons, it’s totally acceptable to ask for money as a wedding gift. You just need to be crafty about how, and thanks to the internet, it’s easier than ever. Below, five sites where you can register for cash gifts in a totally tasteful way.

Honeyfund: With no transaction fees for couples or gift-givers and no set-up fee, Honeyfund makes it easy for guests to give you money without getting charged anything extra. You just set up an account to let them know what you’ll be spending your money on (airfare, a down payment, and so on) and all your gift payments come directly to you, or for a small fee, through WePay or PayPal.

Zola: In addition to physical items from virtually any website (including its own selection), you can register for a honeymoon or cash fund on Zola, which lets you personalize everything with your own notes and pictures. They do deduct a one-time 2.5% cash transfer fee, which you can personally pay or have guests pay for instead.

Blue Print Registry: Set fixed increment amounts or allow guests to contribute any amount toward your funds with Blue Print, which is free for you to use (but passes a 2.5% credit card processing fee onto your guests). You can also choose to receive the cash equivalent of any gift instead of the item itself, with the final payout available through PayPal or direct deposit.

Zank You: This registry, which includes a mobile app, lets you receive contributions directly into your bank account, so you can spend money as you receive it. Zank You is available in nine languages, and payments can be made from anywhere in the world — ideal if you have international family or guests.

Tendr: A cash-gifting-only site for weddings and any other occasion (birthdays, bar mitzvahs and the like), Tendr lets you link to a bank account or Venmo, meaning you’ll receive gifts as they come in. There’s a $3 service fee plus a 2.7% credit card charge, but if guests give via bank transfer or Venmo, all they pay is the $3 fee. You do have the option to cover all fees for gift-givers as well.

This is a no-frills way to get cash for your wedding, with no option for physical gifts involved. Guests sharing cash gifts can choose from some 12 different e-cards for a more personalized feel, and you can send thank-you cards directly from your registry.

Eight organ transplant survivor Adam Alderson weds fiancée


A man who survived a multiple organ transplant has married his fiancée two years after being told he had just weeks left to live.

Adam Alderson had organs including his pancreas, stomach and spleen replaced after contracting a rare cancer.

The operation took a team of 30 people about 17 hours to complete.

Mr Alderson, 36, married his fiancée, Laura Blanchard, in Hornby and said: "After everything we've been through this is the icing on the cake".

Mr Alderson, from Preston-under-Scar, near Leyburn, was diagnosed with pseudomyxoma peritonei in 2013 and at one stage was told nothing could be done and he was sent for end of life care.

But, after learning of pioneering surgery carried out on England rugby league player Steve Prescott he underwent the same procedure at Oxford's Churchill Hospital.

Mr Prescott died from complications three weeks after undergoing the operation but the same surgery was successful for Mr Alderson.

He is believed to be only the fourth person in the world to survive the operation.

Speaking after the ceremony he said: "I'm an emotional wreck today. I never thought we would see this day."

His wife, Laura, added: "We've been to hell and back, but it's what makes you really. It means the world to me and I'm absolutely thrilled."

Among the guests at the wedding was surgeon Georgios Vrakas, who led Mr Alderson's operation.

"It is probably the biggest operation someone can have today. It is a massive undertaking," he said.

"You have to really be fit and have the mental motivation to undergo this so, it's amazing to see that he's actually leading a normal life now."

The couple will celebrate their wedding by taking part in a 15,000 mile rally to Mongolia to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support and The Steve Prescott Foundation.
