I think some many have an issue with paying for your honeymoon (that's what this is right?). Perhaps you can have your close friends and family help out, but I think its a bit rude for anyone beyond that.
In essence, yes. They can pay for certain activities, or dinner one night, or one night of the hotel stay, all sorts of things. We figured we would have that option, and also have a regular registry for guests who do want to buy gifts. This may be our one chance to take a real nice trip until Liam is quite a bit older.
