    I don’t like the Honeyfund type of registries.  I find them deceiving since you don’t actually get whatever you registered for, just cash.  I also think they are rude because it’s simply a veiled attempt to ask for cash and asking for cash is never polite (at least in the US).

    However, I do love giving experiences over physical gifts and I know I am not alone.  I think the Sandals’ registry is MUCH better because you actually get a coupons or upgrades or whatever for the items actually purchased and not just one big check to use at your discretion.  If I buy you a shark feeding tour, you actually get a shark feeding tour.  And I wouldn’t mind any fees since they would be handling fees to actually set up said appointments or whatever.  I always thought it was dumb to use a website that charged fees to simply transfer a guests’ money to you.  It doesn’t cost me anything to write a check!

    @kat912: I’m using Honeyfund and it’s been wonderful! We’ve recieved many gifts to pay for the honeymoon and I plan on taking a photo doing what each guest paid for and sending it to them in our thankyou cards as an extra thank you to show how much we appreciate it!

    I should mention, we are going to Europe so I’m assuming a Sandles registry wouldn’t have worked for us anyways. I actually liked the flexibility of the gifts instead of actual vouchers, bc you never know when until you get there if timing works for all of your tours and excursions.

    I am more okay with a Sandals registry since it is not for cash. I do not like cash registries (which honeyfund is) and think they are rude and deceptive.

    @kat912:  Honeyfund is more flexible  – for example, if you get there and your kayaking trip gets rained out, will Sandals refund you the money or apply it to something else, or is that gift just lost? With Honeyfund, since the gift is cash, you could just choose an indoor activity instead (massage, fancy dinner, etc). As a gift-giver, I would want you to have something you enjoy… even if whatever I had picked ends up not working and you choose something else to do with the money instead. 🙂
