Chances are your honeymoon will be the vacation of a lifetime. With more and more couples breaking with traditional retail wedding registries and thinking more along the lines of what they truly need or desire, more and more honeymoon registry sites have been popping up. So push pause on the wedding planning, grab your fiancé, dust off your luggage, and channel your inner wanderlust, because we've rounded up the best honeymoon registry sites.
Maybe you've seen Honeyfund on Shark Tank? This innovative online wedding gift registry operates a bit more like a crowd funding site than other travel specific registry programs. Through this service you can register for contributions to your wedding itself, down payments for a home, donations to charities, and most popularly, travel. Boasting no transaction fees for contributors or set up fees, this site allows contributions be made directly to the couple rather than through their service; however, they do offer Elite options for an enhanced site experience, and the option to accept online payments from gift givers for a nominal fee. Simple to use and user friendly, Honeyfund is a great option for couples looking to register for their honeymoon travel and more.
This hybrid registry service aims to bring personalization to each and every registry experience. By acknowledging modern couples have various needs and desires, their innovative registry platform enables couples to register for everything from wild and exotic adventures to cash funds, to any item from any store. Also offering a low cash fee (2.4 percent credit card processing, which registrants can choose to pay instead of guests) Zola truly enables the registrants to create a comprehensive wish list that both includes and goes beyond traditional registry items. Registering for all aspects of your upcoming honeymoon through the cash fund option is extremely easy, and when the time is right you simply request checkout via direct deposit, pack your bags, and get on your wedded way!
Having serviced over 800,00 couples, Honeymoon Wishes offers a variety of free tools to aid in the wedding planning process, including downloadable announcement cards, and an online "thank you" tracker. What is unique about this registry service is that in addition to the option of gathering the funds given by gift givers and dispersing them to you, they also can transfer the funds directly to partnered hotel(s), eliminating you as the middleman. Depending on your preferences, this is an excellent option to truly feel as though you are getting a gift, versus a check in the mail.
Whether your honeymoon dream is to backpack through Europe, stay in a beach house in Malibu, go glamping in Canada, or hit up bed-and-breakfasts in New Hampshire, Traveler's Joy has helped couples turn those dreams into reality since 2004. Their site is easily navigable and it's simple to set up your honeymoon fund page. All gift redemptions in the U.S. are free. Contributors can give a gift with cash or check for free. They can also use a credit card, but will be charged a customary card processing free of 2.95 percent.
Enabling you to create a visually captivating and personal honeymoon registry website, Wanderable personalizes the process of registering for honeymoon contributions. With space for photographs, a storytelling feature, and a specific itemized wish list, Wanderable also allows you to receive your gifts as you wish, whether it be through gift cards (no fees!), a check, or direct deposit.
