Ask for experiences instead of things. There are all kinds of platforms where guests can gift a dinner date or cool activity for your honeymoon. If you do ask for physical gifts, make sure they’re things you’ll actually use. You don’t really need that fondue set, do you?

"As the proud parents of a rescue pit bull (who also happened to be our ring-bearer) and as people who already had more stuff than we knew what to do with, my fiancée and I wanted to offer our wedding guests an option to make a donation to a cause that mattered to us in lieu of going out and buying us a gift. We chose Smiling Dog Pit Bull Rescue because our pit bull, Kaya, brought so much love and enjoyment into our lives that we wanted to support a group that helps people make that same type of connection and give loving homes to great dogs."
