Honeymoon Series: Honeymoon Registries!

A few months back, I discussed honeymoon registries. I still do believe that it's a great alternative for couples who have been living together and have most of their housewares. However, there are a few things to watch out for when selecting your Honeymoon Registry to make sure that it's right for you.

Honeymoon Registries act almost like a bank account. Your registry consists of anticipated activities and trips, and your guests can pay into those activities. You get a check or deposit for that money and can use it accordingly once a gift is given. From that money, the registry takes up to 8.85% to cover their costs. Be aware of these fees.

Also take into account that the excursions and items you register for may not get purchased. However, in order to ensure that you can take advantage of them, you may need to book them well in advance. You will need to front that money with no guarantee that someone will purchase it for you. Register wisely to avoid purchasing items you ultimately cannot afford.

Thank you for mentioning the benefits of a honeymoon registry and describing the attributes behind this increasingly mainstream registry option for engaged couples.

It is great to see how popular the honeymoon registry is becoming. When Traveler's Joy first started accepting Members over five years ago, we realized there were a large number of engaged couples that were not satisfied with the diversity of the traditional wedding registry market. Since then, the honeymoon registry has become a mainstream option for brides and grooms and the industry has experienced significant growth.

We are proud to have helped tens of thousands of couples honeymoon at destinations they may never have considered - a great feeling for everyone at Traveler's Joy.

I encourage you to contact us with any questions about our service. Most importantly, enjoy your honeymoon!

Best Regards,
