Getting hitched...and on the cheap!

November 5th, 2009 at 07:30 am

So boyfriend finally popped the question! Like me, he's a fellow saver so he got the ring at an antique shop in Montclair NJ at a fraction of the cost. Beautiful, a great deal and eco friendly (recycling in action) to boot -- perfect!

Instead of having the big white wedding thing, we're opting for a destination cruise in February -- just us and immediate family. It's still costing us $20K but significantly less than what a traditional wedding would cost...without the drama and stress.

Here's my question to you fellow savers: any ideas on the best way to do the registry? We don't need any gifts (I'm in my late 30s and he just turned 40. We both have established households and pretty much have two of everything...and thus no need for more stuff) but relatives and friends want to know where we are registered. We'd like to register to benefit local (CT & NJ) food banks but after checking some sites, there does not seem to be any easy way to do this. Any thoughts?
