What's your idea for The Knot?

International guests & Newlywed funds

I highly suggest looking into options for international guests -instead of being US centric only- for the newlywed funds, or clearly mark upfront that it is not an option for couples having international guests attending. It turns out you can only contribute to the funds with US credit cards, which makes it unusable in our case. I only wish we would have known that before and looked for alternatives. While I can understand that our linked account, to which the funds go, needs to be a US account, I am totally baffled that guests cannot contribute internationally. Please look into that as I am sure we are not the only couple on here with guests from overseas ;)

        Agree - I live abroad and cannot buy a gift for my sister's wedding because you don't take Visa, MasterCard or any other international payment method just because it was not issued in the US? It's 2018??

        How do you suggest I buy my sister a gift from her registry?

        Just to clarify, we currently live in the US, our wedding is in the US but we have international guests attending. Any last minute suggestions are welcome as we had no idea until now since we had no problems setting up the fund with our US account. The wedding is in less than 3 weeks.
