I’m using honeyfund.com. It is free compared to other sites which charge a fee and/or a percentage on every gift. With honeyfund, the site doesn’t actually collect money for you, but let’s your guests print vouchers for specific honeymoon items and give/send you checks or cash for them. Also, guests can opt to give through paypal, but paypal charges a small fee.  I’m happy with it. 

 

There are several posts about this already, so if you search the boards you’ll find more opinions. Good luck!

we’re using honeyfund as well. They “skim” less money off the top than other sites since they go through paypal. We’ve had great results so far!

We are using honeymoonwishes.com They are the ‘skim money off the top’ (charge like 7% which can either be deducted or additional, paid by either you or your guest,type, but it was the first  that we set up and we love it.

We chose Traveler’s Joy over Honeyfund because Traveler’s Joy doesn’t have ads on our registry page and it is much easier to use for our guests, especially those that want to give a gift over the phone. We also considered HoneymoonWishes but soon learned that in addition to the 7% fee, they actually charge gift givers another 3%!

I am going with Honey fund as well.. haven’t got is set up just yet, but are sure this is what we are doing.

no fees = cheaper…. site not handeling guests CC info = safer. all in all = better.

we’re using http://www.depositagift.com  i have to disagree that not doing credit cards is safer. if you use honeyfund and it’s done IOU style and people bring the gifts to the wedding, someone has to watch the envelopes…it’s too risky for things to get lost or stolen. if you use a secure site, your credit card info is totally safe and it’s way more convenient for guests. plus they can get points! depositagift.com has the best customer service out there and easiest to use interface. we’ve been really pleased.

Yeah, IOU style would have me a nervous wreck, I don’t want to even worry about a “card box” at the wedding, I am in avoidal of that! 

We are using http://www.uponourstar.com and it is a “wish” registry- so it has both some honeymoon gifts as well as more traditional household stuff- but some is bigger ticket items.  We have zero complaints to far!

If you use a honeymoon registry that means you cant take your honeymoon right after the wedding right? Usually you should be booking quite a few months before you want to go on the honeymoon. My SO and I both agreed we want to leave for our honeymoon the day after the wedding. So a registry is pretty much out of the question?

Not with ours (www.uponourstar.com) but it isn’t just a honeymoon registry.  It is like a universal registry- we do have some honeymoon excursions on there but we also have household items, furniture, tile and cabinets for our house projects/fix ups.

We are leaving that Monday for our honeymoon after our Saturday wedding, so our registry has no impact on that- I don’t think it has to- just like if you rec’d cash or checks at the wedding, it is likely you won’t cash/deposit them all if you were going immediately on your honeymoon.  

Holy crap- TWO WEEKS! 🙂
