If you’re at a loss for ideas on what to buy for your best friend since 3rd grade- who met a great guy/girl 2 years ago-is getting married- and has everything, we have just the thing: a house!
Yes, programs like the FHA Bridal Registry, Hatch My House(www.hatchmyhouse.com) , and Down Payment Dreams (www.downpaymentdreams.com) allow couples to register for funds to be deposited into a savings account in lieu of wedding gifts, to be used as a down payment on their home. Many attest that this is the best way for couples to acknowledge that cash gifts are acceptable, and earn interest on their “gifts”, while others think it’s chez gauche.
What do you think??
