A traditional registry would include picks of home goods such as pots & pans, bathroom towels and accessories, dishes, vases, and the sort. Completing a registry is FUN! You get to have your own little “gun” to scan any amount of items no matter how much they cost.
But, a lot of couples (my husband and I included!) choose to offer a honeymoon registry instead. Sites like The Big Day and Honey Luna let your guests log-on to the site and choose specific amount gifts for certain activities like Scuba Diving lessons at $100.00. The couple then receives a check in the mail for the total amount of “gifts” minus a small fee.
Of course, the couple doesn’t have to use the money for their honeymoon, they can use it to pay bills or part of their wedding costs!
The honeymoon registry option doesn’t seem to be as popular as the traditional gift registry at the chain stores, but it is very convenient for couples and guests. What do you think?
