If you’re getting married soon and are wondering where to register, you may want to consider a honeymoon website. These are a great option if you are looking to do something different or perhaps you think your guests would like to contribute to your honeymoon. In addition to sharing where you’re going and what you want to do on your honeymoon, it is a great option for guests that are coming from out of town.
Honeymoon registries give your guests the convenience of purchasing something online that doesn’t have to be shipped or carried to the wedding, and it also allows them to give the gift of an experience – sometimes an experience of a lifetime!
You can dictate how you want your honeymoon registry to be set up – whether you want to ask guests to contribute to the overall cost of the honeymoon, or have guests give individual activities, money towards flights, nights at the hotel, etc. While most honeymoon websites include a service and transaction fee, your guests won’t have to pay any sales tax or shipping fees.
There are many honeymoon websites available so we decided to review the most popular ones. And no matter which one you pick, don’t forget to customize your honeymoon registry with pictures and a description of what you’re planning for your honeymoon – it will make your honeymoon registry more personal!
Cost – Free setup. Free for guests. For the couple, there is a 7.5% service fee that is deducted from the total cost of the gift given.
