I haven’t registered for one yet but a few people on here recommended honeyfund.com to me when I asked something similar

@lexmek27:  FI and I actually DON’T live together yet, but will by the summer. We have been buying things for an apt for the last year so we don’t need much. We are doing a honeymoon registry and i think its a great idea!

@lexmek27:  We’re using wanderable.  It charges you 2.5% or 5% depending on whether you want to incurr the guest fees (2.5%).  The only downside of using them is that the dont have a pre-made format, so you basically have to enter all the “items” and descriptions by yourself.  I solved this probelm by starting another honeymoon registery on a competing site, copying their premade registry and adding it to wanderable since they had the most inexpensive fees. Just an idea!

If you are thinking resorts, lots like Sandals offer a personal resort registry.  I don’t think they take a cut, as you will be paying them either way.

@lexmek27:  We are doing one off of honeyfund, and it is free.  We are only giving guests the option to pay in cash or check, that way there is no fee taken.   We are telling guests about it when they ask us what we are doing for registries, but also are linking it to our wedding website – which is where people will have to go to RSVP, so they will see our registry info at BBB and Honeyfund.

We used Traveler’s Joy – they charged 6% (I thought of it like sales tax) and we incurred the fee for our guests. They had a lovely, customizable interface that looked professional but still 100% was our honeymoon. We included pictures of the activities people helped to pay for in our thank-you cards once we got back too – I think people really liked seeing their gift “in action.”

We also had a Bed Bath & Beyond Registry just in case (for people like grandma who wouldn’t use the internet.) Our gifts were split pretty evenly between Traveler’s Joy and Cash. NOBODY used the BB&B registry and only a few people brought their own gifts.

 

Very happy with Traveler’s Joy, would definitely have used them again.
