I think most people use honeyfund.com – I doubt anyone will post their actual links as it would give away their pictures, full names, possibly addresses, etc. Too much personal info to share with a bunch of strangers on a forum.

I’m one of those who wouldn’t post a link to my registry on a forum, but I can still answer your questions.

We’re on HoneyFund.com. We like that it can be used as an anything registry, not just for travel.

We have a lot of regular household registry items listed. For these we tried to recreate the traditional registry information as much as possible. So the item is listed by name (KitchenAid Stand Mixer #xxx-xxxx in RED), a little blurb on why we’d like it/how we’d use it, a picture, and a link to the item on the KitchenAid website.

For Honeymoon items, we chose to have experiences but not actual travel costs (so no flights or accommodations). We’re doing a 28 day cruise so we’ve included a few special dinner upgrades (they’re $20pp) and listed them as “Special Onboard Dinner”, described how they’re different than regular dinners, and put a picture of yummy-looking food.

We also listed the excursions we’d like to do. Some of these are pretty expensive (up to $200pp) so we’ve broken them down in to smaller denominations. They are listed as: Port name, Excursion name, Excursion details/what we’re looking forward to seeing or doing, and have a picture representing the activity. For those who contribute to these, we’ve promised to take a picture of us enjoying their gift and include it in their thank you notes. (We plan on writing them while on Honeymoon and mailing them when we get back).

Hope that helps!

We did a honeymoon registry with a local travel agency. People can make contributions towards our honeymoon in any denomination they wish, and the travel agency doesn’t charge us to do so (just their initial booking fee which was about $50). Is there something like this you could try in your area?

If you just go on honey fund.com, you can search random last names to check out others (brown, jones, smith, etc)
