My husband and I got married in November. I was 30, he was 31. We had a ton of kitchen stuff (at one point we had two KitchenAid mixers) but no cash and a lot of debt. We set up a honeymoon registry and made it really fun, so people could buy us drinks, massages, parts of a plane ticket, a tank of gas, a night in a yurt, daily coffee so we could "stay awake to do married people stuff," etc. We made it so there were $10 options and $100 options. I found that a lot of people wanted to buy us gifts and this gave them a fun outlet — where they almost felt like they were helping plan our trip. It helped us take a wonderful vacation to celebrate our marriage without going into even more debt.
