Honeymoon Registry Opinions?

Hi all - what are your thoughts on a honeymoon registry?  My fiance and I live together and already have a lot of the things that would be on a typical honeymoon registry.  I think they're a great idea.  It seems like a lot of people are against them on the etiquette board - what are your thoughts here?

Re: Honeymoon Registry Opinions?

  • My opinion is to ignore the etiquette board, they will rip you to shreds because they have no lives and that's all they do. As far as doing a honeymoon registry, I think FI and I are also going to do that. They've become very popular recently, although I would suggest still having a traditional registry for your more old fashioned gifts. We will probably use Honeyfund =)

    I personally don't like them. A lot of the sites I've read about keep a percentage of the gift and the person buying you the gift might think they're buying you a swim with the dolphins excursion but what you're really getting is a check for part of the amount.



  • I've never heard of one. We'll probably just register to upgrade some of our appliances.

    I've heard this too. For that reason, I wouldn't do a honeymoon registry.<div>

  • This was an old post, but I'm going to make an account on Honeyfund so I was seeing if there were any old posts about it. The only way you get charged is if someone pays with a credit card to your paypal account. Has anyone else looked into this?
