    I like honeymoonwishes.com, for what our needs are. I was able to designate different items (and break down the price), as well as add on custom items. So, for instance, I have "Upgrade us to First Class" and have it broken down into like 20 increments of $40 each. I've aeady had one person purchase from there. So, we've got horseback riding ready to go when we get there. We also have "Casino Chips", "Romantic Dinner for Two Under the Stars", "Romantic Couples Massage", "27 Waterfalls Excursion" ... etc etc.

    Bottom line, though, is we will just get a deposit of the funds from things that were bought. We can use it for whatever, but it makes it more personal for the gift-giver and we plan on using that money for whatever people purchased, since I only used that registry for things we would want/do anyway. Does that make sense?

    As far as fees: You can set it up 2 ways ... the gift-giver can be charged an extra 7% at the time of purchase ... or the 7% fee can be taken out of the funds deposited to us. We chose to have them deducted from our deposit, so as not to further inconvenience the buyer.

            I really like it. It's my favorite registry, because truthfully, we could use money towards our trip more than tangible goods ... but this makes people feel like they aren't just giving us money, you know?

            You can look at mine, and what I have registered for on our wedding website. . Just go to the "Gift Registry" page and it will be the first one listed. Click on that link and it should take you right to our Registry page for honeymoonwishes (I think it should take you there without having to do a last name search...).

              Hhmm... Not sure about that. It had my actual resort listed and filled in the available amenities ... then I added extras and custom items...

                  my resort isn't listed either, but the town does - I guess that means I can use it? not sure!

                    Oh, I did just walk through the checkout process, and there is a $1.50 "Handling Fee" for credit card processing ... but looks like that's the only extra fee gift givers would be charged as long as you have the fee deducted from your gifts rather than added to their cost.

                      Sure you can. You can just "Build" your own registry from the list of items that are offered.

                      I added some things that didn't automatically load from the resort and then customized some things on my own.
