we looked in to carnival.  that is if you want a cruise. i think you look under weddings at the bottom of their home page. depending on when you are getting married you may still have to wait to book the cruise.  If you get lost there let me know when we looked into it we got lost.

I’ve heard some good things about Honeyfund…travel agencies also do them, but obviously you’d have to book your trip through the agency.

We are using honeyfund. I recommend it.

The way it works is that you set up a simple account and create a wedding website. On the site, you can break your dream honeymoon down into segments – like "horseback riding at sunset" or "romantic dinner" – and attach prices to each. Guests have the option of purchasing these segments using Paypal (you have to set up a Paypal account if you dont already have one), or cash/check at the wedding. The site emails you every time someone buys you a gift and keeps track of who sent what so you can send thank you cards later.

You can request a disbursement of the funds in your PayPal account at any time. However, since we wanted to go away right after the wedding and didnt want to wait until people started buying us gifts to plan (especially since most people wait until the last minute to purchase gifts) we already booked our trip and the gifts will really just offset the costs and provide us with some extra activity money…so the "gifts" were somewhat imaginary. But if your honeymoon will take place later, you could actually use the funds to plan your trip.

The only thing that bothers me a little is that PayPal does take out a small percentage for processing fees. It comes out of the gift; it is NOT tacked onto your guest’s payment. So if someone buys you a gift for $60, you really only get $57.96 in your account. I think it’s a small price to pay for the convenience, and probably less than most would pay on shipping.

We also set up a Target registry for those who weren’t too hip to the whole honeymoon registry thing…so far no one has gotten anything off of it! I guess they can tell the trip is more important to us 🙂
