I think this is tacky any way you look at it. I've seen invtations that say something along the lines of "monetary gifts to go towards the purchase of our first home" etc...its a bit tacky but i think its more graceful than saying, monetary gifts only please.

they have online honeymoon registries that allow your guest to put money towards your honeymoon (which is essentially the same thing, giving money) but i think its alot less tacky than asking for money straight out.

i dont think there is a good way. i'm asian and most of our guest will give us money anyway but it's rude to ask them straight out to give you money

i agree with the other girls. i dont think theres really a way to do it without the risk of looking really tacky. if you're set on doing it though, i think mentioning why you only want money is the right route to go. that way people at least know where their money is going.
