Honeymoon Registry - Have the Honeymoon You've Always Dreamt Of

Mar 22, 2008
We all know what a wedding registry is all about. Department stores allow engaged couples to manage the purchase of gifts for their wedding. The couple creates a list of items that they would like to receive, then let their friends know where they've registered. Guests interested in buying gifts can then consult that list and see which items that the couple needs and wants. No obligation to buy but if guests do they know they're getting something the couple will value. Win-Win!

The idea of wedding registries has been extended to include honeymoons. Things and activities a couple will typically pay for on a honeymoon can be included on a honeymoon registry. In the same way as a wedding registry, the couple simply let their guests know about it. This way the guests can help the couple make their well-deserved dream trip.

However, unlike typical wedding registries, some honeymoon registries do cost up front. The arrangements differ widely, though. In some cases a flat fee is charged. In others, a percentage to anyone purchasing a listed gift for the honeymoon couple.

These charges cover the costs honeymoon registry services are making to get the best deals with tour operators, hotel chains and airlines.

There is a whole array of gifts that can be added to a honeymoon registry.

It may be 500 airfare miles packages to help the couple cover airfare - one of the biggest expenses. Or it could be a romantic sunset cruise, helicopter tour or guided horse back ride.

Sometimes guests who have chosen a gift from the registry only pay a deposit. The full amount is then paid afterwards when the couple has used the gift.

So read the fine print carefully because policies may vary widely from service to service. Gift dollars may never expire. If the couple did not take advantage of some of their registry gifts during their honeymoon they still can take advantage of it whenever they want.

Purchased registry gifts may expire too. In that case the money minus fees may or may not be returned. There is nothing wrong with it. It's up to you to read the contract carefully and if it's not included ask for it.

Honeymoon registries have their pros and cons. Sometimes prices can actually be lower for those who book through the hotel's online website, for example. But a honeymoon registry can also be a convenient and effective way for friends and loved ones to give the couple a Jeep safari in Africa or a private bungalow in Aruba.
