Newlywed Fund in Canada
Hi There! I am sure you have received many comments regarding this! This idea is extremely unique and I haven't been able to find anything similar for Canada so if you're able to make it happen that would be awesome! Our wedding is in September so sometime this spring or summer...as I am sure it is that easy to do! (kidding) :)
Thanks for reading :)
Thank you for reaching out about The Knot Newlywed Fund. This is still a very new addition to The Knot and we are excited so many couples are looking at using this for their cash registry solution.
Right now, the Newlywed Fund is limited to being linked to US Bank accounts both for the couple and for the guest. This means that a US account is required to set up the fund and a US issued credit card will need to be used to make a gift for a couple.
We are hearing from a few couples and guests that are other places in the world and would love to know when this might open up to their countries and banks. For now, the US banks will be required, but we are definitely looking at an international option and keeping track of where these requests are coming from. This is still a brand new offering for us and we definitely want to make sure it is just right the way it stands before we offer it to a broader range.
Thank you for your understanding.
Enjoy your planning!

Hi , we've been invited to the wedding of friends using your website. We can't donate to their wedding fund as we have an Australian address/credit cards. Do you have any other suggestions so we can get the funds to them before the wedding? Maybe your company could check out PayPal or something similar for the future. PS I did send an email to you but no answer. Thx
