Is a Honeymoon Registry Tasteful?

Let’s talk about the classic wedding gift registry. Traditionally, the couple getting married registers for certain items at a store they both like in order to fill their new household with all of their houseware necessities. Their guests, then, choose their gifts off of the registry list, presenting the couple with pots and pans, cookware, fine serveware, bedding, bath towels, etc. This system works great for couples who will be moving in together for the first time following the marriage.

But what about other couples? These days, it is much more common to see couples getting married who have lived together for months or even years. These couples have already filled their homes with basic living necessities, and they may not have need for a typical wedding registry. If you are one of these couples, why not try a honeymoon registry instead to help pay for those expensive honeymoon packages?

What is a honeymoon registry?

couple buying onlineThe typical honeymoon registry is an online service that allows your guests to contribute a desired dollar amount to your honeymoon fund rather than purchase gifts off of a gift registry. This simplifies the entire process for your guests and helps you finance your honeymoon. It’s a win, win for everyone!

Aren’t honeymoon registries in poor taste?

When first introduced as a service, honeymoon registries were considered by some to be in poor taste, however many others disagree with this. Your wedding is about you and your spouse, and so is the gift registry. Your guests just want to contribute to your future happiness; they won’t care how you prefer they do that. If you think some of your guests might prefer to get you a traditional gift, you can always do more than one registry! After all, there’s nothing wrong with giving your guests more options for showering you with gifts.
