for many years, it was assumed that the bride-to-be would be setting up house with her husband from scratch. straight from mom and dad's house to her very own and that's where the traditional wedding registry comes in - dishes, linens, small appliances........everything a young couple needs to begin their life together.
but what if the couple already has their household needs covered? nowadays that's often the case. if so, a honeymoon registry might be the way to go.
when we got married, hubby and i were combining our households - okay, technically, we were moving my household into his house and getting rid of all his boy stuff. you know how that goes ;-) but we had decided that if our friends and family wanted to give us gifts, it made the most sense to contribute to our honeymoon. and instead of just asking for cash, honeymoonwishes let us list specific events our guests could contribute to - an opportunity to still gift us with something personal while helping us cover the costs of our trip.
honeymoonwishes provides tools for you to use to let people know about your registry, you can set up a wedding website and even a photo album.
so if you'd like to do something a bit more personal than asking for cash - and let's face it, that's a bit tacky - the honeymoon registry is the way to go!
