We’ve registered at Bed Bath and Beyond and Honeyfund.com.  Of course, the wedding is still 2+ months away, but we’ve gotten positive feedback from everyone we’ve mentioned it to.  Of course, in our situation, I’m 30, Fiance is 40 and everyone has already seen that we have enough household goods for three homes…

I think it’s fine.  You’re giving your guests lots of options.  Those who want to buy a physical gift can go to the store that they like better (or browse the registries you’ve made for the perfect gift) while those who don’t want to go out to the store or who don’t have time (or who don’t want to pay shipping costs if they can’t make it) can give you a fun honeymoon “gift certificate”.  It’s more personalized and special than just sending off a check.

We’re only registered at honeyfund. We just don’t need housewares at this point. We like it so far, though we’ll have to pay for the honeymoon ourselves and just get reimbursed by our guests.

That’s interesting, I have never heard of that. Does the website charge or make any money out of this?

We are doing a honeymoon registry as our only registry. We were planning on using honeyfund, but the layout and the way the site works seems a bit tacky to us. Also, if you want it to look decent, you have to pay for the upgraded version. So at this point we are considering using one of the paid websites like honeymoonwishes.com

We’re using Honeyfund, of course we have no idea when or even where we want to go yet so that should be interesting…

ETA: We also have two other registries- Macy’s and Williams Sonoma

We just registered on honeyfund last week!! I did a lot of research and found that it was the easiest for our guests and it doesn’t charge anyone which is awesome, too!! We also have 2 other “normal” registries for our household stuff :]

we are registered at BBB and honeyfund, I did the upgrade on their website which cost me like $29. It was worth it. My shower is next month and so far I have gotten lots of great feed back on the honeymoon registry. Some people had never heard of it and thought it was a great idea. We have 2 excursions paid for already 🙂

We used honeyfund – and I’m glad. But, I will tell you that only about 3 guests actually used it – But, when I did get cash – I pretended that people used honeyfund and put amounts we received. I think since honeyfund doesn’t actually collect the money for you – people don’t get the point – but, if you register they do understand that you want $$$$!

i registered for honeyfund before thoroughly researching it and now I’m not sure if we’re going to use.

on your website, do guests say how much they are going to give you, then send you a check for that amount?
