Alternative Wedding Registries

Hatch My House
Saving for your first house? Hatch My House lets guests log on and purchase the windows, door, or even the roof of an engaged couple's virtual dream home. Funds are deposited directly into a paypal account, so couples have immediate access to their cash gifts.
Using this handy website, users can register for items sold at a variety of online stores. You can even sync your existing Target,, Crate and Barrel, and Williams-Sonoma registries to so guests can view all of your wishlists in one convenient location. Bonus: The company recently debuted an iPhone app which turns any iphone into a barcode scanner. Any time a user scans any barcoded item, it's immediately added to the registry.
