#DestinationWeddings #HoneymoonRegistry JESS Kalinowsky JESS@FriendsTravel.com

A honeymoon registry is a service, typically on the Internet, that assists engaged and married couples in financing their honeymoons.

Honeymoon registries began in the 1980’s as an additional service provided by Friends Travel, LLP. Some are still set up in this manner and require the wedding couple to use our travel agency to book their honeymoon.  

Friends Travel, LLP will  provide the couple with a customizable web page to share their honeymoon plans with others and accept gifts toward the honeymoon. As “non-traditional” registry options such as a honeymoon registry became more popular, Friends Travel, LLP added this option to complement their “traditional” fare in 1985. 

The typical honeymoon registry service

Most honeymoon registries allow a couple to create and customize a registry web page with photos and details of their upcoming wedding and honeymoon. Wedding guests are invited to visit the registry site so they may contribute a monetary gift to cover a portion of the honeymoon or a specific activity as detailed by the couple.

For example, a couple may list dinner at an elegant restaurant, scuba diving lessons, or portions of hotel and airfare. These activities are displayed in an organized and user-friendly inventory format on their customized registry page. As wedding guests browse the registry page, they can make a gift, typically using a credit card, of any of the listed activities or give a general monetary gift of any amount towards the honeymoon.

Etiquette

As noted by The Wall Street Journal review of popular honeymoon registry services:

“A honeymoon is a perfectly appropriate gift to request,” says Peter Post, president of the Emily Post Institute, a Burlington, Vt., etiquette think tank. “There’s no objection to it from an etiquette point of view.”
