I know this is an old post but it caught my attention. We registered at a travel agency for our wedding and it went over well. The whole point of registering for gifts at a wedding is to get what you want and need. Well, we already had a house and had been living together for many years so we didn't need nor want another toaster. A few people got us other things which was nice but in the end, we went to Southeast Asia and it was paid for. Our hobby is traveling so it was nice that our guests could provide us with a gift that we would remember for the rest of our lives.

You shouldn't have to have a traditional registry because that's what people are expecting. You shouldn't tiptoe around wanting to go on a trip just because other people may not have the opportunity. If someone is so annoyed by the fact that that you want to go on a trip and they can't, well then they can buy you some oven mitts.
