It’s very common for couples to live together before marriage these days & accumulate all of the basic necessities of domestic life. Kitchen appliances, bath sets, dishes, glassware, the list goes on. We’re also getting married later in age now where a lot of those things we’ve already gotten as gifts (and lets face it, we’ve all gotten one of those items that didn’t quite suit our taste at one time or another) or bought for ourselves. A honeymoon registry is an excellent alternative the to the typical bridal registry.
Instead of registering for the usual pots & pans, couples register activities/excursions, room upgrades, private dinners on the beach & anything they possibly could dream of to enhance their honeymoon. Do you want to swim with the dolphins? Friends or family can give that to you as a GIFT…a memorable gift. Does the butler suite not fit in your budget, do you want a couples massage ocean-side? Register it.
In the end, it comes to you in cash but you do receive a card from the person who bought it for you. Everyone has a little bit of difficulty finding the perfect gift & if that someone wants to contribute in making your new lives together extraordinarily special, this is the way to do it.
