Hiya, Broke-Asses! Our wonderful partner Bliss Honeymoons is back, and this time they’re easing your worries about how to pay for your honeymoon. If, like many couples, you and your love have shacked up together before your nuptials and just can’t fathom how another toaster or blender will fit into your living situation, then take a deep breath and check out how easy and awesome it is to register for that amazing post-wedding experience: your honeymoon!
If there is one challenge that almost all engaged couples share, it’s where to come up with the funds to pay for their honeymoon. And while nine out of ten couples would love to ask for money for their honeymoon, finding a tactful way to ask for cash is hard! Fortunately this problem can now be a thing of the past, thanks to a honeymoon registry.
Let’s face it… weddings can drain your bank account faster than you can say “I do”. Many couples have considered postponing their honeymoon because they just can’t see how they can afford it. Your honeymoon registry offers tactful way for you to ask for money from your wedding guests, and its fun for the guests too!
Once you’ve nailed down the details of your dream honeymoon, your honeymoon planner can set up an account for the two of you. Your registry can be customized to your honeymoon destination with items like spa treatments, golf, zip lining, an upgraded room, etc. You’ll be provided with a link to your share with your family and friends, so they can easily jump online and make a contribution to your honeymoon registry.
Your guests will love it because they can purchase a wonderful gift with just a few clicks of the mouse with no boxes to ship and nothing to gift wrap. They can even leave you a message telling you what they’ve purchased and offering their best wishes for your fun in the sun.
The gifts in your registry are not physically purchased or set up. You’ll receive the gifts in the form of a check from the registry company. It’s secure, easy for you and your guests, and a sure-fire way to get you and your honey where you want to go.
Let’s face it-we’ve all given gifts that we suspected might end up being re-gifted. Great honeymoon memories are always a welcome gift. Your guests will be honored to be a part of the memories that you’ll have for a lifetime.
There are several ways to ensure your guest feel like a part of it all. Once you return post pictures of your trip and of the two of you enjoying some of the activities on you registry. Or, send postcard “Thank You notes” from your location. Unlike a gravy boat, a honeymoon gift creates memories you can share.
Oh, the registry. Whether you’re picking out the perfect crystal serveware or raising funds to take skydiving lessons, nowadays the options are endless – and so are the ways to add them to your wedding registry. So much so that it can get uber overwhelming, uber fast.
SimpleRegistry keeps it just, that … simple. Rather than juggle a traditional registry from a department store with your rockin’ registry at a less generic store you really love, drop them all in one basket and step in the cash-out line. With SimpleRegistry’s barcode-scanning mobile app, you still get to scan all the cool stuff you see out shopping without having to take notes. In fact, the plethora of rad-tastic tools SimpleRegistry offers for organization will have you feeling like a kid in a candy store as you load up on those purple appliances and huge wine glasses.
Because they get broke-asses, SimpleRegistry can break up the portions of those big-ticket items, like the flat-screen TV or tix to Opening Day, so all your friends can chip in and get you something you’ll be sure to never stop thanking them for.
Oh, but wait. Did a better model of that TV just come out? No worries. SimpleRegistry
redeems all gifts into cash, so you can go ahead and splurge on a slightly fancier television. (“Downton Abbey” looks so much better in 3-D.)
And when all’s said and done, you’ve said your “I do’s” and are checking out spa amenities for the couples’ massage you registered for, you’ll remember to send Cousin Lily a huge thank you … because SimpleRegistry helps keep track. They keep all the info about who gave what and their contact info super organized, so you won’t forget to send out the love.
What if I told you that anything you can source online, OR apply a monetary amount towards, can be instantly added to your wedding or honeymoon registry? Bed linens from Crate and Barrel? Handmade trinkets from Etsy? Done and done. A luxe European getaway? Why not? SimpleRegistry lets your guests team up to make your dreams come true with Group Gifts! Crafting your registry while you’re on the go? Use SimpleRegistry‘s iPhone app to instantly add products by snapping a photo or scanning a barcode! Brilliant!
