Gone are the days where wedding registries used to be all about setting up the couple’s new home. In the 21st century, gifting kitchen supplies for couples who may already be living together is pretty redundant, and not a little frustrating for the guests.
The advent of the internet has provided an option for young couples to register for their heart’s desire. One of the up and coming types of wedding registries is the honeymoon registry. This option allows couples to ask guests for help to fund their once-in-a-lifetime trip.
Even though it was once a taboo to ask for gifts in form of cash, the honeymoon registry has made this more acceptable. It’s much more convenient on the gift givers and it fulfills the true wishes of the newlyweds.
Are you looking to create the perfect wedding registry and accurately get what you wish for? Here are the three popular honeymoon registries for you to consider.
Zola has become a popular choice for couples who are looking forward to a variety of gifts. The most amazing thing about Zola is that it offers a wide range of goods, in different categories and from different brands. Their products are not limited to just one brand. Their registry’s funds section includes cash and honeymoon options. Cash fund allows guests to buy a cash fund contribution as part of your honeymoon. This may be anything ranging from traveling airfare to other items. The payment is processed by Zola then directly deposited to your bank account. However, remember that you or your guests have to pay a 2.65% credit card processing fee. Zola has reinvented how guests buy, ship and share wedding gifts. Couples can personalize their wedding registry, making it a fun process for everyone.
