I received an email today about working with the brand, Honeyfund. Never having heard of them, I did a little google search and came up on a small debate:
Millenial couples are saying no thanks to the latest Toaster and are instead asking their wedding guests to contribute to their honeymoon. The question then becomes…
Is that tacky?
I’d say no. When I got married (the first time), I spent a good deal of my reception in a corner finally realizing I had stressed and planned this day for other people to eat drink and be merry while I was shoved into a sweetheart necklined, sequined straitjacket. It made no sense to me. Asking these very same partygoers to fund a significant event in your lives seems very very fair!
What real value does a tea set have in a new couples life? Not much. But a trip to Figi? That’s helping to build their foundation of memories.

Now you weight in: Would you ask guests to donate to a Honeyfund? If asked, would you donate to a friend of family members Honeyfund?
