MatriMoney

Looking for an elegant way to ask for a monetary gift from your wedding guest? Need something other than kitchen appliances or new towels? With HRECU's MatriMoney wedding registry, you won't have to worry about returning gifts or not getting what you wanted. MatriMoney allows you to receive the gift of cash, so you can conveniently spend your money where you want, on the things you really need.

MatriMoney provides a sophisticated way for engaged couples to request cash that is similar to retail registries. Your wedding guests can give you a monetary gift in a secure way by making deposits into your MatriMoney account, where it starts earning interest immediately! You can use the money to help pay for your wedding, take a honeymoon, save for a down payment on a home, or anything you'd like! Best of all, Hampton Roads Educators' will match the first $100 in gifts!
