We are both in our 30s and have accumulated too much stuff already. And, we live in San Francisco where space is a very real issue; seriously, the only enclosed room in our apartment is the bathroom. We just don’t have the space for more stuff. As such, we are not currently planning to register anywhere.
We understand that we are asking you to fly into a place that has notoriously expensive airfare, pay for rental cars and hotels, and invest precious vacation time to be here with us. Honestly, your presence and support on our big day is the best gift you could give us.
If you must spoil us, we’d greatly appreciate tasty consumables, like a nice bottle of wine or some good bourbon. Modest contributions to our honeymoon sailing trip in the British Virgin Islands and/or ‘we’d like to buy a confusingly expensive home in California some day’ funds are greatly appreciated with a heartfelt card, too. If you’re interested in this option, we will have a card basket/gift table at the reception, or you can send them to our home:
2011 3rd Street, Apartment 11
San Francisco, CA 94107
For those of you that prefer online money transfer, we’ve set up the PayPal buttons below . Just type in the amount you would like to give in the ‘item price’ field.
NOTE: If you already have a PayPal or Venmo account linked to your bank account, you can save us the CC processing fee by logging into your account and sending your gift to firstname.lastname@example.org using the ‘Send money to friends or family’ option. DON’T USE BUTTON’S ABOVE.
If you don’t have one, but are interested in setting up a PayPal account, click here for more info and instructions. NOTE: to avoid the CC fees, you’ll need to first establish a link to your bank account – this typically takes a few days to complete. Don’t worry too much about the fees… they’re pretty small. But heck, why pay ’em if we don’t have to!
CC fee = ([your gift amt] * 2.9%) + $0.30. That equals $3.20 per $100.
