    we're thinking of doing a honeymoon registry when the time comes. we've both lived alone for many years and don't really need that many household items.

    who's done this? experiences? thoughts?

    I would like to do this as well. I think I'll talk with my TA about their ideas.

      We signed up at Honeymoon Wishes - Honeymoon Registry where your wedding gift is a Romantic Honeymoon ... plus our TA started a separate account for us. Both are listed on our website, but we're not advertising the registries otherwise unless someone asks. My sister got something for us from the registry for my birthday and said it was simple and unique. It gives people the feeling like they are still buying you something tangible rather than just giving you money, even though in the end you get a check for whatever is purchased, so everyone is happy!

        that's the site i was just looking at too! i love love love love love the idea! and i would think guests would rather buy an experience over a set of bath towels... IMO anyway, i'd much rather give the gift of swiming with the dolphins over some lame towels!

        we thought about it but when we were registering we weren't planning on a honeymoon. let me know how it goes.
        Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!

          Exactly! I added a bunch of custom options as well to ours. I also chose the option of having the 7% fee taken out of what funds are sent to us rather than having it added on to the gift givers charge. 7% really isn't very much to take out of whatever funds we build up through this.

          I did only sign up for things we actually want (I broke down a lot of the prices too so it's lots of affordable items rather than a bunch of high-proced things) and we will try to do evrything that is 'purchased' for us. (My sister got us "Horseback riding on the beach" which we will definitely do (although I think the resort offers it for free anyway...) :-)

            so what if people "buy" you more than you have time for? do you just get the $ back?

              The funds are put into an account and you actually simply have that money direct deposited or a check sent to you for the amount (at your request) so you truthfully can use the money for whatever you want ... it doesn't actually purchase tickets for that event. Does that make sense?
