For those of you who have/had a honeymoon registry, how did you promote it? I did not send any registry information in the invitations and my Maid/Matron of Honor already sent out the bridal shower invites with only our gift registry information, which is fine because giving cash at a bridal shower isn’t really done where I live… We have the link on our wedding website, but I’m not sure how many people are actually going to go on it…
So how do I promote it in a discrete, non-tacky way? My mom is terrible with technology so having her spread the word by mouth is a little difficult…

Hmmm….I printed mine on the Save the Date (Sandals website and registry) cards. But for you…..is there anything else that needs to be sent out to guests? I was thinking maybe you could discreetly do it if you had to send out a wedding day schedule, or any other wedding related info….
Do you have the traditional gift registry as well as the honeymoon registry? If so, I’ve seen where you can add a few “notes” or “remarks” on the store registries. Maybe you can put something there giving your guests another gift choice? Directing them to the honeymoon registry?
This gift thing has been tricky, especially the honeymoon registry. We only did the honeymoon registry and no store registries….hopefully this will help or at least get some ideas going for you!

Ya, I was thinking maybe it’s best to just tell me mom to spread the word that we would really appreciate cash donation which will go towards our honeymoon… since it’s too complicated for her to explain what a honeymoon registry is to my aunts and uncles, lol.

Consider Traveler’s Joy honeymoon registry because they are a partner with The Knot and WeddingChannel.com so it is super easy for guests to find your honeymoon and other registries. Have you seen the Registry Center on WeddingChannel.com that puts all of your registries in one place? Also, having a link from a “Registry” section on your personal wedding website is probably your best bet. Don’t include any registry information on invites or save the dates, it is considered super tacky. Just tell your close friends and family (they’ll spread the word) and use a wedding website!
