Why You Should Have a Honeymoon Registry

As soon as you get engaged, the number of decisions that need to be made about your wedding can be overwhelming. From finding the perfect location, to selecting the dream dress, to color choices and picking out flowers, the last thing a lot of couples think about is their honeymoon or honeymoon registry.

For so many engaged couples, a wedding registry is a no brainer. But in the last couple of years, honeymoon registries have become more and more popular. Not only will creating a honeymoon registry help fund a trip of a lifetime, but your guests get to pick out unique and nontraditional wedding gifts. You can’t find the gift of an over-the-water massage with your spouse at Crate and Barrel now, can you?

Planning a honeymoon just got more fun  

With a wedding registry, the sky’s the limit, and the possibilities are endless. If you want to swim with the pigs in the Bahamas, add it to your registry. If you would like to arrive at your resort by helicopter in  St. Lucia, add it to your registry. Looking for an adventurous honeymoon to Maui to go surfing or off roading in an ATV, add it to your registry. A honeymoon registry doesn’t just have to be the extravagant extras, you can add on the minor expenses also. Need a rental car, bikes to ride around town, or a bottle of champagne waiting for you in your room? Simply add it to your registry. 

Planning your honeymoon through a registry lets you think about all the memories you will make after the wedding!

Your Budget will not be the deciding factor   

As more and more couples are paying for their own wedding, one of the biggest stressors can be the wedding budget, while completely forgetting about the honeymoon budget. 

With all the immediate cost of the wedding, it’s easy to undercut the honeymoon, but that shouldn’t be the case. That’s why with a registry, especially one like WeddingVibe’s honeymoon registry, you can plan your trip early on, so that you can share with your guests at all the pre-wedding events and showers. Having the option to buy you an excursion or an experience over another set of bath towels will really excite some of your family and friends. 

Your Guests will have different options from your registry

One thing that we all know about weddings, is that they can become costly even for the guests. Going to an engagement party, a bridal shower, a bachelorette party and then finally the wedding, can all add up fast. Why not allow your guests the option to gift you part of your honeymoon, while considering they all have different price points?  

Your honeymoon registry allows you to pick price points for all ranges. When your grandparents give generously, they may be paying for part of your resort room or your airfare. Whereas your friends or coworkers who might also be planning their own wedding or finishing up school, can give you a candlelight dinner on the beach. Better yet, by setting up your honeymoon registry with bigger items, for example, a $400 spa day, into smaller gift amounts, you’re giving your guest endless options to go in on gifts they otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford.

It becomes more personalized

I guarantee that your guests will love looking at your registry knowing they can help make your dream honeymoon become a reality. More so, as you enjoy your honeymoon, you can think of the thoughtfulness of everyone who contributed. Remembering that your friends contributed to your spa experience or that your aunt and uncle wanted you to have the royal experience with a room upgrade will make your honeymoon feel even more special. Lastly, when you write your thank you cards, you’ll be able to tell your guests about your experience, making it more personal and heartfelt. 

When you look back at your big day, you won’t remember that your Aunt Linda gave you that blender. You will remember the excitement of your wedding, spending it with loved ones, and celebrating the best day of your lives. In addition, you’ll have all the lasting memories of your honeymoon spent as newlyweds. Starting a Honeymoon Registry is without a doubt the way to go when planning your dream Honeymoon.
