I think the decision to do a honeymoon registry is unique for every couple and wedding. My FI and I chose to do one because we've been living together for 2 years, and even though we have a roommate and will eventually have to divide items when we move, we are not moving any time soon. Our house is small, so while some items from a registry would be useful to us now, most of them would have to be stored somewhere until we move into our own place. We are also inviting 250 people and come from big families who believe in giving money at weddings and gifts at showers. When we first brought up the idea of the honeymoon registry, the family and friends we talked to thought it was a great idea. They liked the idea of helping to give us a nice vacation rather than buying us a new blender. Bottom line. Do what works for you. It's 2012 and I personally think the etiquette rules on how things need to be done are in dire need of revisions. So many people lead so many different types of lives that I think the basic rule of thumb is, if it works for you and your circle of friends and family, then do it. Hope this helps. I got blasted for saying we have a honeymoon registry, but everyone who knows about it told me they thought it was a brilliant idea.Posted by futuremrsbruno

We are using Sandals which is powered by Honeymoon Wishes. Our guests LOVE it! Just six weeks till our big day and we are super stoked! we have nearly $3000 in gifts including a couples massage, an off-road jeep safari and Sandals has this awesome foundation so our guests are giving $150 to this charity. If this is what you want, create a honeymoon registry and together we can re-write the etiquette rules!Posted by brookethebride1
I think the idea to go to a honeymoon registry is totally worth and it is also very nice experience for the bride and groom. It gives us a lot of exciting offers and places where we can enjoy thoroughly. My cousin suggest me to go for the honeymoon registry to Our Wishing Well. We have registered with them and I am very exciting about my honeymoon.
I love all the takes on this post. It works for some but not everyone. There is a new company out there that does it a bit differently, it doesn't charge the couple for the credit card processing (the reason they can't be totally free) so they get the whole pot and it doesn't have you piece your honeymoon into meals, airline tickets, guests just give you money. They also don't have any advertisments on your registry so it's really personable...worth checking out: http://www.gftgthr.com/Posted by aihtnycnnyl
