3 Reasons to Swap Your Wedding Registry for a Honeymoon Fund

Every couple is unique and deserves an unforgettable wedding experience. That’s why we’re going to suggest something a bit non-traditional… let’s talk about honeymoon funds!

Now, we know that most people just set up a registry for their wedding. 

However, in today’s modern world– more and more couples are living together before they get hitched. This means that a lot of times, the bride and groom-to-be already have a lot of the things they want to decorate their forever home with. 

With this in mind, it might be time to upgrade your current concept of great wedding gifts. Below, we will list 3 top reasons why you should swap your wedding registry for a honeymoon fund. 

#1 You Already Own All Necessary Hamilton Beach Appliances

If you already live with your fiancée, then you’ve probably already combined your possessions and don’t really need more traditional registry items. Why ask for another toaster oven if you already have one? 

If it’s a destination honeymoon that you and your fiance are after, then there’s no shame in requesting financial support from your loved ones. They’re already in the giving spirit and want to support you. 

And hopefully– if you relieve guests of their societally-imposed obligation to shop around for a gift, maybe they’ll be more generous in sponsoring your honeymoon.

#2 A Honeymoon Fund Is Super Simple to Set Up

There are a few different ways to set up a honeymoon fund…

Honeymoon Fund Websites

If you’re looking for a fast and convenient option, you can consider registering with a site like Honeyfund or Zola. The only downside to registering with these websites is that they usually charge a fee, meaning that they take a portion of the money you’re gifted

Donation Box

Another option is to simply create a physical donation box and place it on your welcome table at your wedding. For added security, you can add a lock, or assign a trusted guest to keep an eye on the box throughout the duration of your wedding.

Pro Tip: Pinterest has a myriad of adorable ways to decorate your box! Get crafty, and make it personal for you and your groom.

#3 Guests Are Actually Gifting You an Unforgettable Experience

As we mentioned earlier, it should be easier for your guests to donate money rather than go out and purchase a gift. 

But if you receive any pushback on this, just gently remind your loved ones that this honeymoon is something you and your future hubby have been dreaming about. It’s not just money that they’re giving– it’s the vacation of a lifetime with your sweetheart.

With this in mind, we have a tip for you while you’re on your honeymoon. 

We recommend taking a photo of you and your special guy somewhere breathtaking. Then, once you return home, you can send out personalized thank you cards with your photo to every guest that financially supported you. 

It’s a simple and sweet way to extend your gratitude to those that sent you off!
