THE GOOD BEGINNING
If you've been out on your own for a while before tying the knot, you might just have all the kitchen gadgets and towels you need. In that case, check out The Good Beginning, which streamlines the processes of accepting donations in lieu of gifts from your guests. Set up a wedding registry for one or more charities of your choice on The Good Beginning, and your guests can donate to your causes straight from your registry. As gifts are received, The Good Beginning generates a list of who, how much and which organization each guest gave so you can send thank you's to your guests.
P.S. We're also fans of their blog, The Daily Give.
