Honeymoon Wishes or Honeyfund

Recommended Posts

great info,  we are looking at going a Honeymoon registry as well.  It just makes more since for us and our guest with it being a destination wedding and not all our family attending.  Even though we have told everyone that gifts are not something they have to bring/give us, everyone keeps asking me "where are you registering".  We both have 2 houses full of stuff when we moved in together last December and had to sell/give items away when we made the move.  Keep us posted on how it works out for you :).

I'm only just seeing this but I set up honeyfund for our registry and have received several gifts from guests so far (mostly the people unable to make the wedding liked the idea that they could still help create memories by purchasing excurisions etc.) So far I have had no problems with receiving the funds or with honeyfund. Everything goes through paypal, its fast and easy!

Thanks for all of the feedback about honeyfund!  I feel better about using it now and think it will be easier than my TA handling the honeymoon gifts.

I just set up our honeyfund website, I got the premium, and I think it looks great! We are just sending out our STD's so I have not been expecting anything yet. I have a paypal account but it said that I needed to be confirmed or set up something special in order for it to work...anyone know what they are talking about?

I'm using Upon Our Star too, and so far it's been great - guests that can't make the wedding have purchased "wishes" for us, all online (& don't have to worry about getting a physical gift to us later) and since we've been living together for some time now, we don't have to have a traditional registry with 'stuff' - the last thing we need is more stuff LOL!!

 You could do something slightly different, but with the same idea to get money/cash to pay for it.

 

My hubbie-to-be's family is Chinese so they are really cool about giving cash - I was a little worried about asking for cash from some of the older members of my family (my friends were fine about it, as they have been in exactly the same position as me!)  so I've set up out list at www.uponourstar.com I've chosen a bunch of cool 'wishes' for us, a lot to do on our honeymoon  (snorkeling, spa, dinner out) , and now my fam can 'buy' us those (& then we get the cash after the wedding, yay!). 

 

Steves' family will still give us red packet / Hong Bao too which will be nice. Also, I'm pretty excited about not getting more stuff, I don't need any more wine glasses or sheets ;*) 

 

I would consider Upon Our Star if you want something a little different!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
