What is the Honeymoon Bridal Registry?

Traditionally, wedding guests gave the wedding couple gifts to help them set up their new home together, such as cutlery, glassware or a toaster. Today, couples are generally established owning their own household items (and even their own home) and quite often are already living with their future spouse. These circumstances have instigated the move from the traditional Myer/David Jones household goods Bridal Registry to the more modern Honeymoon Bridal Registry.

As all movements from convention, this new registry has it’s sceptics. This does not hinder the wave of couples moving from the traditional registry to the Honeymoon registry. The main attraction of the Honeymoon registry is that it eases the financial pressures of getting married and all the bells and whistles that come with it. It also gives the guests the opportunity to give something meaningful to the wedding couple and not just another toaster.

The honeymoon registry works like any conventional registry. Once the couple plan their honeymoon, the honeymoon bridal registry service provides the ability for the couple to break down their honeymoon into gifts that can be purchased by their guests. For example, the couple may want to go scuba diving, or have a romantic dinner, these are gifts available for purchase by the couple. Airfares and accommodation can also be broken into gift amounts that guests can purchase.

There are some key factors to keep an eye out for when selecting your honeymoon bridal registry host.

  • Does the company allow you to create an itemised registry? Some travel agencies advertise a honeymoon bridal registry however this usually only includes guests paying money towards your honeymoon booking. Your family and friends will be more comfortable with an itemised registry where they can select to purchase you something meaningful e.g.: romantic dinner for two.

  • Does the company allow you to book your honeymoon through any travel agent? Many places provide a registry if you book your honeymoon through their company or partner company.

  • Is it easy for your guests to purchase? Can guests ring in their purchases? Pay on line? Or send a cheque? Or direct deposit? It is important to remember that many of your guests do not live locally, may be even interstate or international guests. You need a registry to cater for all of your guests.

  • Are your guests supplied with an invoice or documentation as proof of purchase? As the wedding couple, will you know who purchased what for your thank yous? Do guests have the option of making an anonymous contribution to your registry?

  • Does the company specialise in honeymoon registries? Or is their registry service a side business? When organising something as important as your registry, it is best to be dealing with people who know their business.
