So the fiance and I already live together and we dont really want to register for things we already have. We were thinking about maybe just registering at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and possibly Home Depot (we like to entertain but we need to build a patio first) which leads me to ask..which websites are the best for honeymoon registries? i’ll register for the sake of the guests who aren’t very fond on donating money, but we’d appreciate the help with the honeymoon. I heard honeyfund is good and doesn’t charge a fee like honeymoonwishes.com, but I’m not really sure how to pick one. Which do you recommend? plase help

Honeyfund.com seems like the go-to honeymoon registry that I’ve seen.

Our resort, St. Regis, hosts their own honeymoon registry. Maybe look into that?
ETA: But other than that, yes, HoneyFund is the one I’ve seen used most and seems people like.

I’ve seen other brides complain that some people weren’t able to use cards, but that may be worth if for my piece of mind.
Here’s another questions…exactly how are you supposed to tell others about it? I’d assume you don’t send that with your formal invitation..or do you? I love the idea of honeymoon registries and wishing wells, but how do you tell others without being so blunt? I guess I just don’t want to offend anyone, but again there’s no point in getting yet another set if dishes or tupperware. Do you send out a seperate card for this kind of announcement?

We used Wanderable.com and it worked well for us. There is no fee from the site but all payments go through Paypal which does have a fee.
We included the links to our registries on a tab on our website. The info card insert in our invitation had the website address so we weren’t directly giving our registry info. It seems that everyone found it ok.

A wedding website sounds like a good idea. And spreading the word by mouth will be awesome as I am hispanic my side of the family is very Americanized and totally understand todays culture. Some of my fiances family is still first generation and only speak some English although their children may get it, they may not so at least this will get around to everyone one way or another.

We used honeyfund and it was great. With PayPal, people could pay however they liked. They can also mail checks. Our MoH and best man spread the word.
When we are on our honeymoon, we are going to get specific pics so we can include pics of what they pledged to us with our thank you cards. 🙂
We also had an amazon universal registry just in case it made someone uncomfortable.
