I’m not doing a honeymoon registry and I’m not sure I’d "buy" anything off of one–I’d rather send a check to the bride and groom that they can use as they see fit (and do so without all the site fees that some of these places charge). But I don’t think it will take away from your other registry… if I want to buy someone a gift, I do, and if I want to give them money, I do. I doubt you will convince anyone to change their minds. 🙂

I’m doing mine through Marriott, since that is where we will be staying. I love giving people gifts off their honeymoon registries, and since we are having a honeymoon shower, it seemed very appropriate!

We did a honeymoon registry through our resort.  We don’t have any other registry, although I was thinking this morning that it might be a good idea to give people the option.

I love the idea.  Of course it will take away from your other gifts, but it will go toward something else you really want–contribution to the honeymoon.  A friend of mine is using Honeyfund and she’s been happy with it.

Fiance and I live together and lived on our own before moving in together. We have a lot of the stuff we need already so we decided to do a honeymoon registry. We are having two small registries at Target and Bed, Bath and Beyond to upgrade a few things (pots and pans, mostly kitchen stuff that we got second hand or very cheap to get through college). We’re using honeyfund.com for our honeymoon registry, Fiance is basically in charge of it so I’ll ask him but he seemed to think it was easy to navigate. I disagree with your Maid/Matron of Honor I don’t think it’ll take away from your other registry, I think it’s just a nice way for people to buy more unique than a toaster, some people aren’t traditional registry fans. Take my Fiance for example, he hates the idea of giving someone another pan (even if they need it) I think for someone like him giving a memory like a spa day or bottle of wine in your room is a great option.

I am going through my travel agent and she is not charging us $100 for setting up a wedding website, letting people use credit cards online (not paypal where they take a certain percentage so it is free for our guests) and also putting our registry on her website.  She is also throwing a honeymoon shower for us, no one is allowed to bring gifts we are just having a theme shower (basically it is an excuse to have a party) of things that we would eat and drink in the Dominican Republic.  I would rather spend the $100 upfront so my guest don’t end up paying for it.  Everyone I know is so excited about giving us experiences instead of "stuff"!  I say at least my guests will know that I used their gift!

I too would prefer money, and the best way I see of asking for money is by doing a honeymoon registry. I’ve read that a lot of people think your parents should spread your desire for cash by word of mouth, but I don’t know …

Has anyone used the Sandals registry through weddingchannel.com?

We’re doing honeyfund & I have mixed feelings about it because my parent’s say its tacky. This honeymoon isn’t going to pay for itself though! lol.

Here, here, @legallyblondebride… my Fiance and I have a [email protected] honeymoon planned that will cost just about as much as the wedding (yikes!!!!), and we’ve lived together for years, so we don’t need coffee pots and toasters, etc.

My mom was a bit surprised, but I told her it was ‘quite the thing these days’ because more people are living together before they get married… and so I don’t think she’ll put up a fuss about it
