Until now, traditional registries were the only polite way to request gifts for a wedding; placing a pretty set of dishes on a list of items you would like from a store is a lot easier for Grandma to digest than telling her "I want some money." But what if you want to buy dishes from a chain store and flatware from a decor boutique you stumbled upon while traveling through Italy, and (since you already purchased a nice coffee maker when you moved in together a couple years ago) would prefer straight-up cash so you can save up for that kitchen reno? Even a giant department store registry couldn't accommodate that wish list! The best way to get everything you want and need is to be gifted cash.
Luckily, we've discovered a new way to register for wedding gifts that accommodates your modern needs: Tendr. It's the Venmo meets Paperless Post of registries. You sign up, connect your bank account, and create an attractive registry page for your wedding or other life event. Friends and family can then sign up and send money directly through the website in a beautiful virtual card created by local artists all for a $3 flat fee. That's less than the cost of gift wrapping at most stores! Take a peek at how it works below, and visit Tendr to try it out yourself.
