A honeymoon registry is an internet service that helps wedding couples pay for the cost of their honeymoon.
Honeymoon registries were first offered by travel agents and agencies as a way of assisting their customers with the cost of a honeymoon. Some registries are still set up in this way and require the wedding couple use a specific travel agency to book their honeymoon. The newest and most popular honeymoon registries do not do the actual planning and booking of the honeymoon. Instead, they provide the couple with a customizable website to share their honeymoon plans with their guests and accept gifts to offset the honeymoon cost. As honeymoon registries become more popular, traditional registry services have added this option to complement their original wedding registry services.
Most honeymoon registries allow a couple to create and customize a registry website with photos and details of their upcoming wedding and honeymoon. Wedding guests are invited to visit the couple's registry so they may contribute a monetary gift to cover a portion of the honeymoon or a specific activity as detailed by the couple. These activities are organized in a user-friendly format in their customized registry page. As wedding guests browse the registry, they can contribute a gift, typically using a credit card, of any of the listed activities or give a general monetary gift of any amount towards the cost of the honeymoon.
Some services provide a messaging system that allows wedding couples to email notices of their honeymoon registry to wedding guests as well as print out invitation inserts. Tracking of gifts to assist couples in thanking their guests is generally included in the service at no additional charge. Gift redemption is typically via mailed check to the couple.
Couples who create a honeymoon registry benefit by registering for items like dinners, excursions or a sunset cruise they may desire more than physical objects. Also, the increased funds available for a honeymoon can open up activities that the couple may have otherwise been unable to afford.
For wedding guests, contributing to a honeymoon registry, the gift giving process is greatly simplified and usually takes only a few minutes. Wedding guests may also feel their gift will help provide a lifelong memory and be much more appealing to them than a typical houseware gift. This makes a honeymoon registry particularly valuable to those who value experiences over possessions.Immobilienmakler Heidelberg Makler Heidelberg Schnell, zuverlässig und kompetent
