WHAT IS A HONEYMOON REGISTRY?
A honeymoon registry is a simple way to register for various experiences on your honeymoon, from a dinner on a catamaran, to a couples’ massage. Instead of your guests buying something for your home, they can buy you a sunset boat tour on the Amalfi Coast. Basically, guests can partially or fully fund any part of your honeymoon instead of a traditional wedding gift.
WHY CHOOSE A HONEYMOON REGISTRY?
These are some of the perks of having a honeymoon registry vs a traditional one:
- You Don’t Have to Worry About Money
You just have to enjoy your honeymoon. Since weddings already very expensive, couples often have to cut costs on their honeymoon, and that is not okay! Your honeymoon is supposed to be the best vacation of your life. If there is ever a time to splurge, this is it! If you do it right, a honeymoon registry can even save you money. You won’t ever skip your honeymoon, right? So why not ask for that as your wedding gift!

- A Honeymoon Registry Makes for Memorable Thank-You Cards
A picture of you and your new husband living it up with the experience your guest gifted you, would make the perfect thank you card. Chances are you will already be taking a bunch of pictures of your top honeymoon moments. Did your college roommate give you an unforgettable cooking session in Tuscany? Did your grandma fund your hotel overlooking Lake Como? Print physical photos and include them when you send out their thank-you cards!
- You Can Do a Honeymoon Registry and a Traditional Wedding Registry
More traditional wedding guest (usually older relatives) either may not be tech-savvy enough to get to your honeymoon registry or might prefer to give you a physical gift. Nothing prevents you from putting together a short and sweet traditional registry with some of the things you may really need as a backup option for them.
