I found this website: http://www.honeymoonwishes.com/ (it even shows sample "honeymoon registries"). I found it by searching google for "honeymoon registry"

 

Hope that helps!

Honeyfund is what we are using, and what miss love bug used too! they dont charge a fee, only if you go through paypal they charge a %. But you create it as you would a real registry, get creative with it! I stole some ideas from LoveBug for sure!

I’m using Honeyfund.  I think I did a better job designing my site than the samples.  If you want to see mine, let me know, but I won’t post it here because it has personal info.

Hey hesallmine!

As someone above said, we registered with Honeyfund.  When you set up a registry with them, you list items such as airfare, hotel costs, food, etc. Just as you would a toaster, dishes, etc.

If you check out their site, there’s a pretty good explanation of how it works, with examples.

Just remember, you can be as creative as you want with it; you can list absolutely anything as a gift, because in the end, it’s all just money that’s being given to you.  We registered for room service, extra towels, cab fare, a memory card for the computer – all kinds of stuff.

If you have any other questions, just let me know!

I haven’t officially released it to the guests.  I think most will receive it well.  I asked one of my non-wedding forums what they thought of the idea and most thought it was cool and wished the idea had been around when they got married.  The more creative gift givers on the forum rejected it saying it takes away the creativity of the gift giving process.   Of course, there are no rules that say one must use a registry.  The drawbacks are explaining to people that we don’t need another toaster no matter how much they insist.  I expect to hear that more from the older crowd when my bridal shower invites are sent out.

Another concern of mine is what the bridal shower guests will do.  If they use the Honeyfund, I will have nothing to open at the shower.

To answer your second question, we haven’t had a single problem or complaint with our honeymoon registry.  In fact, it’s been really well received; guests have combined items to make gift "packages" for us, even!

Just be sure to explain the process a bit on your website, for the older (not so technically hip) generation.

we’re going to do this, but it’s really meant to be just for our friends. we’re not going to advertise it to family members for my bridal shower and things, as we also have 3 traditional registries. i just think that for younger people, it’s a little more fun than getting a piece of china or some towels.

We did honeyfund too, and Ireland.  just be carefuls with inflation and currency though.  Unless you’re planning to book the trip now, I would suggest you add an additional 10-15% to everything in euros.

we did honeymoon wishes for our HM registry. i wouldn’t do it again if i had to do it over. no one responded to it, really. ONE person did and what sucked was that honeymoonwishes doesn’t say who gave what… so if that one person hadn’t said what he got us, we would have never known who to send the thank you to.

We just set up our Honeyfund account and people seem to love the idea of it! We’re still two months away from the wedding and about 3 weeks away from the shower, so people really haven’t bought anything off of either this or our "traditional" registry, so I’m not worried. And really, it doesn’t matter. Basically it’s just money anyway. 🙂

We registered for our Disney honeymoon at Disney, and everyone seemed enthused about it when we explained it and said that they would definitely be getting something from it, but only 2 people actually used it.
