      So for everyone using this, what do you do for bridal showers? I really don't want a bunch of new towels and dishes and such, but I know of a few different people who want to throw me a shower. I love the idea of a honeymoon registry, but I don't know if my mom's friends would really enjoy throwing a shower where all I do is open envelopes that say :"$100 for a romantic dinner for two." They're very old fashioned and like to ohhh and ahhh as gifts are being opened.

      Oh! Idea! We could also register at Sun & Ski Sports for ski gear. We're getting married on the beaches of Jamaica, and then (hopefully) going skiing in Australia for our honeymoon. ... but how many ski jackets and warm socks does one couple need? ... hmmm... maybe not such a great idea. Any other thoughts on shower gifts if you aren't registered for "stuff"?

          Let me know if it doesn't work for some reason....

          I ended up adding on a Target and Crate & Barrel registry as well, because we ended up inviting almost 200 ppl (only about 40 are coming) but those people as well as a bridal shower people - I figure the physical registries are good for the bridal shower, and I couldn't think of anything else for the Travelers Joy registry. Especially because we are only going to be there for a week, so we might not have time to go to all those places listed either...

              We are using it too, and some guests have given us things from it, even for the shower. And we've gotten lots of positive feedback from guests that they think it's a great idea. (We're also registered at Target, REI and Crate and Barrel and BBBB - we wanted to give people lots of options!)

                Thanks for all of the advice! It's hard to decide between all of the Honeymoon Registries! We decided to go with Traveler's Joy because they charge only a fee to us. I don't like how the other sites charge a fee to us and a fee to our guests, I'd rather just one or the other.

                As a guest at a friend's wedding, I purchased a gift from the honeymoon registry was charged a fee. I just assumed that the bride & groom were passing the fee onto their guests and not being charged themselves. Now I realize that they were probably charged also (they used Big Day). I think it should just be a fee to one or the other, not both.

                  Lisa_K - thanks for pointing out the difference between Honeymoonwishes and Traveler's Joy! We've been deciding between these two and we were leaning towards Traveler's Joy after reading a New York Times article on them. I think this helped seal the deal for us!

                      Hi ladies, just thought I would post this website here that I came across that compares all of the honeymoon registeries out there today. This way you can look at them side by side and decide which works best for you.
