Having spent her wedding fund on a return trip to Italy and detour to the French Riviera, Amanda Knox is asking well-wishers to contribute up to $10,000 each for her nuptials, per the Daily Beast. "Instead of a traditional registry, we are asking for donations towards the cost of the wedding" because "we don't need any more stuff," Knox and fiance Christopher Robinson write on the registry section of the website for their space-themed wedding. Visitors can contribute $100 toward the couple's handmade costumes, special effects, or a time-travel machine. But donations are also accepted to help cover the cost of the venue, dinner, dessert, drinks, decor, photography, live band, games, and hair and makeup, for the couple's special day: Feb. 29, 2020.

"Whether you're attending or not, all are welcome to donate to specific costs, or at a patron level," reads the site, where well-wishers can also donate $500 or $1,000 to get a shoutout on the dance floor. Donations of up to $10,000 can also be sent with the click of the button, though "we don't really expect to have any donors this generous." Each donor will receive a signed copy of the couple's book of love poems, per People. "We're still figuring out our crazy costumes, sets, props, and food," Knox writes on Instagram. "Fashonistas? Prop wizards? Chefs? Got any advice? I'm all ears." In case you're wondering, the space theme is continued from last year's marriage proposal, which saw Robinson stage a meteor strike.
