By creating a honeymoon registry, engaged couples have a place to direct wedding guests who ask "What kind of gift would you like?" A honeymoon registry allows you the chance to select when and where you want to honeymoon and enables your wedding guests to buy a travel experience as a gift rather than a toaster or dish set.
Many couples getting married now a days are older, well established and already merging two apartments or homes. The last thing you need is yet another toaster. Signing up for a honeymoon registry could ensure you get what you really want.
A honeymoon registry generally works by allowing a couple to select elements of their honeymoon (airfare, hotel nights, meals, tours, sports, spa treatments, admissions, spending cash) that friends and family may buy for you in increments as wedding gifts.
Many travel agencies also provide travel registry services.
As with anything else, you need to be a smart consumer when choosing a honeymoon bridal registry. The last thing that you want is to have the value of your gifts eroded by a high "service fee" that can reduce your take by as much as 15 percent. That means before your honeymoon, you typically receive a check for the total gift cash contributions minus the company's percentage, which could represent a considerable loss to you.
Here are some questions to ask when choosing a honeymoon bridal registry:
- What does it cost to register?
- Are there other fees involved?
- Is your business a travel agency?
- Do you help customers announce their registry?
- In what form do we receive our registry gifts and when?
- Can they be redeemed for cash?
- Do you notify us every time a gift is purchased?
- Can the registry be integrated onto our wedding Web site?
