I'm really stuck up about the stuff I decorate my home with. I like to hang only my own art and photography, and make linens and decorations and stuff or find them at thrift stores and local boutiques and stuff like that, places that you can't register at. Let's just say I'm not really a Target and Bed, Bath, and Beyond type person. My fiance loves my style and the way my place looks.
In addition to this, shortly after getting married we will be backpacking across Europe for 6 months to a year and everything we own will go into storage. We need all the financial help we can get.
I had this idea, instead of including a card in the invitations that says we're registered at some chain store, making a special website just for this that has a list of equipment we need for our trip, how much it costs and where it can be bought.
So basically I have two questions: Is it messed up to ask people for money instead of useless crap, and is the website a good idea?
