That sounds like a good idea! I’m always scared to do a honeymoon registry, because I’m unsure of the etiquette for it. But I think if you register at a site catered towards honeymoons it should be fine. If your BMs plan a shower for you, maybe they can make it a “honeymoon” theme so people will buy you that instead of random gadgets. Good luck 🙂

i think people are split are whether its etiquette-wise to do one or not. however, before i ever knew anything about wediquette, i heard of Honeymoon registries and thought “awesome!”  and i have one, and my guests have already bought us stuff on it.  and they all told me they thought it was a great idea. so i say do it!

I just finished making our Honeymoon registry today!!  We already live together, so we really don’t need “things”

@TheFutureMrsLamkin: i used honeymoonwishes.com, and they have registry cards you can print. i put them in the invites. however, i kinda regretted it after when i found out it was highly against etiquette to put registry cards in with the invites. although anyone i talk to in real life said they thought it was normal.  if you have a wedding website, you could put a link to it there too (which i also did and hence the regret with the registry cards, looking back i feel it was too much to advertise it both ways).

We too already live together so are not in need of anything household. 
We registered at honeyfund.com

I had the registry website printed on my information cards (also includes hotel info and our wedding website) that I mailed along with my invitations. I am not having a bridal shower (this is my 2nd wedding).

I am unsure how I feel about it etiquette wise, or how it will be received by other, but it is the best option for us.

@TheFutureMrsLamkin: It’s something I thought about, but I guessed we’d have to pay the difference anyway between what we received as gifts and the actual cost of where we wanted to go. Also I didn’t want appear to be cheeky, which I know sounds silly. Plus, I do need stuff for the home.

Yes we’re doing one as well actually. We’re using Honeymoon Wishes. I called a few of my older relatives to ask them their thoughts on it, and they thought it to be wise and unoffensive. In terms of etiquette IMO its a matter of guaging your audience. Although, you do not know how each person will react, I say that if you don’t need gifts and it would be a waste, then register for something you do need. I hope that you get all the contributions that you and Fiance need to have a fantastic honeymoon. Many Blessings!

We did one, it was through TravelersJoy.com. It was great! We put it on our wedding website, and just said:

Welcome Friends and Family!

Thank you for visiting our honeymoon registry. We know this registry is a bit unorthodox, but since we have been so fortunate to have a lot of the “essential home items,” we felt this would be something different and fun!

We hope you find this registry as a way to help us make our honeymoon come true. By contributing here you will help us to have the honeymoon of a lifetime! Our honeymoon will be an opportunity for us to create memories that we will cherish and look back on for years to come.

We will do our best to document our experience via photographs and share it with you when we return. We are grateful for all of your support and to have you all in our lives.

Please don’t feel obligated to contribute to our registry, we feel truly blessed that so many of our family and friends will be there to celebrate the beginning of our new lives together.

We did also register at Target for some more conventional items that we can call “ours”, so you’re welcome to take a peek there if you prefer. We thank you for any contribution to help us make a home together, whether with memories or the more traditional things that will make our everyday lives a little brighter.

Love,
Us

we registered for our wedding itself cause we need to pay for that before our hoenymoon can be considered.  We created our own registry at

mydagsite.com

We plan to do one. We’ve been living together for a year and dont need stuff. Our honeymoon itself will already be paid for but we will register for excurions, massages and upgrades to make our trip as memorable as possible. And we will be using Honyfund too since thats the only one that does not charge a fee to you or your guests.
