    Hello!

    I am planning a renewal of vows in Nassau, Bahamas July 3, 2010 and we were planning to stay for a week afterwards as sort of a honeymoon. Well, I stumbled upon the Honeyfund registry and I thought it was pretty cool, but would it be awkward to have our wedding in the Bahamas and then the Honeyfund says it's for our Honeymoon in the Bahamas?

      Nope; that is what they are for. People expect that you will have a honeymoon and a honeymoon fund is gaining popularity; doesn't matter that it is in the same place. :)

            Honeyfund...cute idea! Is there a website where you set this up? I've never heard of this before!

              Please don't take offense to this-just wondering for my own sake but...are you supposed to give/receive gifts for a vow renewal? I've never heard of that before.

              But I don't think that's weird at all if you are staying in the same place. You can register for fun activites like zip lining or snorkeling or nice thing together like massages or dinner.

              Congrats!

                OMG my family and friends love the Hunnymoon fund we set up at our bank. They keep telling me we are the easiest to by for. We are having our Groom/Bridal/Engagement party this weekend and we keep seeing the dollars rise..... GO FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                  No offense taken!

                  Well for us, my husband and I got married when I was 19, he had just turned 20, and he had just completed basic training for the Air Force and I was just a sophomore in college, so we were both essentially broke, so we got married at the courthouse, with just me, him, and the JP for $36. So our vow renewal, which will be on our 7th anniversary, is the wedding we always wanted but couldn't afford when we got married over 6 years ago. So except for the fact that we are already married thus no need for official docs, I'm treating it like a regular weedding. However, I didn't really expect gifts since it is a vow renewal and we are pretty much set, but I have family and friends constantly asking me for a registry, so I thought the honeyfund would be a good idea.

                  Thanks!

                    Awww.... cool story creoletexan :)

                    I like the idea of these funds and websites, but I hate the fees that they charge you.

                      I was thinking the same thing as NaM, but after hearing your explanation, it makes perfect sense for you to have a Honeyfund! Great idea! I say go for it!
