Instead of doing a honeymoon registry, we just had our families say that we had all the stuff we needed and that we would prefer cash.  We did have a small registry for stuff though.  I like the word of mouth better than honeymoon registries because then no one has to pay any fees.  Plus I’ve noticed a good portion of people give money anyway.

What will you do if you get only a part of a honeymooon?  You can’t afford to pay the difference, so I am not sure it is appropriate to register for something that you may very well not end up even getting.

We’re using MyRegistry.com which lets you have a regular registry and a cash gift fund together on the same registry… so we have a honeymoon registry and regular registry combined. I think this is the best way to make sure people visit both registries and consider all their options. If you want people to use your honeymoon registry more though you should just keep the other one really small. Then they’ll get the picture.

We’re using http://www.wanderable.com/pages/honeymoon_registry – which is free, and lets you combine whatever kind of registry. The other option is to have a wishing well at your wedding so people can just deposit money there, but I’m more inclined for the honeymoon registry. I guess the problem is that you can’t expect people to pay for something you can’t afford. If you’re thinking of going at a later date, just make sure people know – I would suggest sending thank you cards twice though, as I think it would be a bit rude to not acknowledge someone elses gift when given, and it’s always good for your guests to know where there money has gone! Good luck!
