Ah, we’re doing our honeymoon registry on http://www.wanderable.com/pages/honeymoon_registry – which is free, pretty and has no ads! My sister also did one, and didn’t have any problems. The key point is to use appropriate honeymoon registry etiquette – I know it sounds a bit vague, but google it cause there are quite a lot of points to it. 

Let people know why you’re using it, don’t write about it on your save-the-date or wedding invites, tell your close friends or family and helps spread the word via word-of-mouth, things like that, really. Oh! And another big one, make sure you can afford whatever is on your honeymoon registry and be specific for each thing you do. People will be more willing to offer you money if you are specific and make it feel as if they’re sharing the experience with you. 

Nowadays, I think honeymoon registries are becoming more well known, and as most people already have most of their household commodities, people are happy to give money if they know where it’s going.

Hope this helps!

I am not doing a honeymoon registry because I feel like it’s the same as asking for money and I don’t think asking for money will ever be appropriate.  I feel uncomfortable asking for people to fund a vacation for me.  Some people will say that having a gift registry is asking for gifts so what’s the difference?  In my opinion, the difference is that a gift registry is supposed to help a newly married couple get on their feet with things they need for their house (and of course, the registry is never advertised like on the invite). There is a difference between things you may need for your house and funding an unnecessary trip (although we all want to go on our dream honeymoon!).  People have different opinions about it, I think it depends on your guests and how they will receive it.  However, if people think it’s rude, they simply won’t contribute.

I definitely would not say “most” couples do this. Some people see it as inappropriate. I don’t, but it would make me feel uncomfortable to do it myself.

Most couples do not do this – not saying that makes it wrong, but traditional store registries are much more common. Whether or not you see it as inappropriate depends on the person – many of my relatives would of, if you’re inviting many people odds are some of them would. For this reason I chose not to have one.
