I am toying with the idea of using Honeyfund (or something similar) to help cover some of the honeymoon costs. Fiance and I bought our house almost 2 years ago and have all the basics we need for living. I’d still like to do a registry, perhaps at BBB, for the sake of a bridal shower. I am just confused how honeyfund works or any of these honeymoon registries work. Spefically: do you have to plan out your entire itinerary first and people then purchase certain activities for you? What about payment to the resort? Do you pay for deposits, airline tickets, etc. upfront with your own money and then get reimbursed? If anyone body has had an experience with this I’d love any help or advise. Thank you!

You register for experiences like breakfast in bed, dinner, balloon ride, etc. They give you cash or a check directly to “fund” that experience (there is no fee if you do it this way). You use the money they give you to pay for the things they gifted you. You can also sign up to use Paypal, which will charge a small fee, but you don’t have to do that.

I just bought someone a Honey Fund gift and it went to their paypal account.

You need to check these websites to see if they charge a fee to the person to take their credit card information. Some of them charge a percentage of the transaction.

We did a honeymoon registry and because we didn’t know for sure at the time when we were going it’s just set up as a credit for when we do book.
If you know where your going you can set it up so that people can put money towards specific things on your list like zip lining, dinner on the beach, scuba diving, or whatever.

Thanks for the advice!
@RockStar33: which one did you use? We have no idea where we’re going yet, so perhaps we should do that and have the credit!
