FI & I are thinking of starting a honeymoon registry. For us, we have lived apart (long distance relationship) for the majority of our time together & own cookware, dishes, & the like (not great stuff, but it works nonetheless) & would rather our guests give towards our honeymoon fund.
What website did you use to create your honeymoon fund? Honeyfund.com seems to be popular, but there are a lot more out there. What did you dis/like about it? Would you recommend it to others?
OR did you use your resort (Marriott, Sandals, etc.) to create a registry? How was the process? What did you dis/like about it?
Or is a honeymoon registry a complete waste of time & effort?

We had a honeyfund registry but ended up changing it to Traveler’s Joy. Honeyfund says they are free but if you want your guests to be able to use their credit card, they have to pays fees. Plus there is advertising all over your registry page. After you sign up for the ‘free’ honeyfund, they then tell you to upgrade (by paying a fee) so that you won’t have advertising. Traveler’s Joy worked wonders for us and was super easy to use! Well worth the 7% or so.

We used Honeyfund … loved that it was free to use and guests could either give cash/check at the shower & wedding, or they could pay on their credit card (free to them) through paypal and it takes 3% which wasn’t terrible considering it was so easy to use and you can transfer directly into your bank account from paypal securely. You don’t even have to allow the credit card option but in my opinion that was easiest.

My friend used honeyfund for her registry and it seemed to work really well. They only gave cash and check options, and they used the free site (I’ve looked at it so many times and don’t remember ever seeing ads, but I just checked, and there are ads on the right-hand side – no pictures though, just text in colors matching the rest of the page). I know they were able to add options later, because as peope started buying items, they added more at varying price points.

We’re using http://www.wanderable.com/pages/honeymoon_registry – it’s free, pretty and with no ads! It’s quite easy to use. If you’re worried about any problems just read lots of sites on honeymoon registry etiquette – it’ll help you out a lot!

We didn’t use any site. We just tell people that we don’t need any household goods but funds for honeymoon would be appreciated! So for our wedding, most people just gave us cash and checks. (I am sure we break the etiquette rule here, but hey, they gave us something we could really use and sincerely appreciate! 🙂

We are usuing honeyfund.com. Paid a little extra to have nicer layout and no adds (way better presentation). Was really fun to design and share cool details about our honeymoon. Just now sending save-the-dates this week, so haven’t received any gifts yet 🙂 Will see how it works when the time comes….
