If you are not familiar with what a honeymoon
registry is, you should be!
Today, many couples are already living together
prior to getting married. For some, it may be
a second marriage. As a result, the need for the
usual household items as wedding gifts often does
The natural solution to the wedding "gift
giving" dilemma is the popular and growing
trend toward honeymoon registries.
It's perfect! You get a great honeymoon and your
guests can feel good about giving you a gift that
they know you really wanted. Something personal
A honeymoon registry is very similar to the usual
gift registry. The difference being that instead
of getting pieces of crystal or china as gifts,
you will get "pieces" of your honeymoon.
What a wonderful idea!
When you join a honeymoon registry, your chosen
destination package is broken down into affordable
"pieces" and listed just like a normal
gift registry. The airfare may be broken into
several smaller pieces. Each meal or activity
you choose will be listed. Your guests can then
search your registry and purchase a desired piece
of your honeymoon for you.
There are many honeymoon registries to choose
from but all are not created equal.
A good registry will...
... be simple to use. Remember, not all of your
guests are computer savvy.
... provide both email and postcard notification
of your registry to your guests. Not everyone
has a computer and postcards are just more personal.
... provide your guests with a visual and physical
accounting of their purchase. A gift card to present
to the bride and groom as well as a receipt for
their own purposes is required.
... have exceptional, personal, customer service
complete with a 1-800 number so that guests may
contact them with any questions they may have.
... have a proven track record and specialize
in honeymoon registry service and travel.
... be bonded to ensure protection of the money
in your registry account.
... pay out your collected honeymoon funds in
a timely manner.
Call them. Talk with them. Make sure you are
completely comfortable with your choice before
As a polite gesture on your part, take pictures
of your "gifts" while on your honeymoon.
The guests who contributed to your happiness will
appreciate a picture in your thank you card!
