buy-our-honeymoon.jpgSo, here's the deal: you've been together for years. You've got all the towels and plates and silverware you could ever need. You don't want any more vases, and you're not interested in candlesticks. But you are planning a three week adventure honeymoon across Argentina, and you have no idea how you're going to pay for it after putting on the wedding.

Enter buy-our-honeymoon.com and their honeymoon gift registries

Unlike some honeymoon registries (which take a cut of each gift) buy-our-honeymoon.com just does a one-time fee of $64. They have a bunch of non-froofy design themes, and keep their branding to an absolute minimum on your registry pages. You can upload your own photos for each item you list (Snack in Buenos Aires: $15. Night at hotel: $100), and organize your items into as many categories as you need, and display a second currency for each item, with the site managing the currency conversions for you. Oh, and their customer service is suuuper attentive, which is awesome if you're on the non-geeky side of things

Check out this sample registry for a couple who's honeymoon is Vancouver BC's pride weekend and imagine how you might put yours together.

Since buy-our-honeymoon.com doesn't take any commission from gifts, you can manage the payment however you want: by cash or check, or by linking your registry to a PayPal account so guests can use their credit cards to pay the couple directly. Buy-our-honeymoon.com doesn't hold onto your gifts — they're available to you from the moment they're given.

So, if you don't need plates or vases or flatwear or new bedsheets, head on over to buy-our-honeymoon.com and start assembling the little bits and pieces you'll need for your honeymoon.

Comments on Honeymoon registry from buy-our-honeymoon.com

  1. Hmm. I know a lot of people use them and I’ve even contributed and that’s all well and good, but *personally*, I’d feel icky asking people for honeymoon funds. I know the flatware, etc. gifts aren’t always wanted or needed (although that’s kind of how all gifts are – you’ll get some things you want and need and some things you don’t), but this is just another way to ask for money as a gift. And somehow itemizing each vacation-related expense (unless you do it in a super-funny way) makes it seem even MORE tacky. I dunno, it’s probably just me.

  2. It’s not just you. I think it’s tacky as well. I have no issue with getting the word around that y’all are saving for a great honeymoon, etc and hoping people give you some money,but asking for somebody to buy you a snack is a bit strange to me.

  3. Ugh, I’m so sick of people saying that asking for cash is tacky, while asking for gifts isn’t. Asking for anything could be considered tacky, but guiding your friends and family toward what will actually be useful and meaningful to you if they want to give a gift is just smart. If it’s not tacky to register for Waterford and crystal, then how is it tacky to suggest contributing to something more ‘your style’ – a vacation, the downpayment to a house…
    Sorry – I get a little worked up on this one…

  4. I have a problem with asking for anything as an “established” couple. If I can’t afford to pay for my wedding and my honeymoon, I shouldn’t be having a large wedding or going on a big expensive honeymoon.

  5. I’m with Liz. This can turn some guests off since it’s something that seems more extravagant than crystal knicknacks. People tend to give money to the couple at weddings anyway. I think that it’s best to just register for something modest and then see what happens.

  6. I’m gonna put the kibosh on the “is it tacky” debate — it’s a debate with no end. Some ideas are great for some people, and not others. If you don’t like the idea of a honeymoon registry, then you absolutely shouldn’t do one at your wedding.

    I will say that as a wedding guest, I’ve been super stoked to give friends $30 for dinner in rural Mexico — most of their gifts were in the $20-$50 range, which is hardly extravagent. I loooooved contributing to their honeymoon.

    I trust that each engaged couple will be the best judges as to whether their circle of guests will appreciate giving experiential gifts like those on a honeymoon registry. Personally, I love it.

  7. As an established couple, I think we might do 3 things –
    1)register for a few things we could use (new pots & pans or bedding)
    2)information for donations in our name to several animal organizations
    3)information on the honeymoon we are planning and how guests can help
    I know when I go to a wedding, I want to give something from me that the couple will enjoy. Even if I think something is kinda odd, if it is something they want/need… so be it!

  8. i am not asking for gifts or for a honeymoon. i will have a gift registry but only those who ask will be given the information. the most important gift i can recieve is their attendance at my wedding.

  9. i’m with ariel on this one. did those of you decrying the “tacky” and “extravagant” nature of a honeymoon registry actually look at an example?

    $30 for room service, $20 for a play/show or even $80 for a couples massage all seem like reasonable, affordable and AWESOME gifts.

    i mean, i’ve given many couples, ones i know have everything and want for nothing, gift certificates to restaurants, theatre tickets, etc. why not allow them to enjoy these things on their honeymoon?

    i’m going to try to do a honeymoon registry myself with my limited HTML skills and paypal. in addition to $20 for “treacherous bus trip down the Albanian coast”, it will include $10 carbon offsets for our air travel and $15 donations to charities in the countries we’ll be visiting.
