I have many brides that ask "We already have everything we need... And we can't just ask for cash... What do we do?" My answer? HONEYMOON REGISTRY!!!! This is where your guests can actually help fund your honeymoon. How great is that!? It is very new and upcoming. At first, people felt it may be a bit tacky. However, year by year, it is becoming more popular and accepted. Peter Post (the President of The Emily Post Institute) said "A Honeymoon is a perfectly appropriate gift to request. There's no objection to it from an etiquette point of view." So there you have it... totally tasteful!!
You may be thinking "What kind of things can my family & friends fund?" The options are endless!! I've had brides tell me they were able to have a private candle lit dinner on the beach or take an excursion to swim with the dolphins ALL because of their Honeymoon Registry. I had a girlfriend of mine that got to zip line across a rain forest --- across a BEAUTIFUL rain forest... with her new husband!!! Just think snorkeling, a day at the spa - umbrella drink in hand of course - a wine tour, a dinner cruise... you name it! There are so so many fun & memorable options. These, after all, are experiences that may not happen without the help of a honeymoon registry.
Where to start? I've been told by several people that Honeyfund and Wanderable are the two most popular sites.
I would love to hear feedback on your thoughts ... tacky or tasteful? Or, even better, share the fun things you got to do with your sweetheart because of your Honeymoon Registry.
