Planning and executing the wedding of your dreams can be exhausting—and expensive!—which is why a swoon-worthy honeymoon is just as important of a factor as any wedding décor decisions or tasting menu. Thankfully, there are plenty of honeymoon registry sites that will make the financial aspect of planning your first trip together as a married couple much more affordable.
Honeymoon registry websites have become a popular alternative to more traditional registries as more and more couples opt for experience gifts rather than material items. The surge in popularity also reflects the fact that many couples have already been living together, and already have all their toasters and serving bowls sorted.
So how do honeymoon registry websites work? It depends. Some honeymoon registries will let you outline exactly where and when you’re hoping to vacation, allowing guests to chip in as much as they want to help you hit your financial goal. Other sites actually allow your guests to spring for business class flight upgrades or pitch in for a larger honeymoon suite. Not sure where or when you want to honeymoon? You might prefer a site that allows guests to contribute to one lump sum that you can use at your discretion.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of the top honeymoon registry sites available. From comprehensive travel-focused sites to fundraiser-style platforms, you’ll find something that’ll work for your particular needs—no matter what your honeymoon plans might be.
This comprehensive site functions a bit like a traditional crowdfunding website, allowing guests to donate cash toward your honeymoon goal. That said, Honeyfund also allows you to register for specific parts of your honeymoon experience to allow guests to feel as though they’re part of the honeymoon planning experience.
Don’t want your entire registry focused on travel? Blueprint offers a hybrid method that affords couples both honeymoon-specific items (like airline tickets and vacation packages) as well as more traditional home and kitchen retailers. The comprehensive wedding planning website also supports wedding planning, guest list management, and wedding details for guests all in one simple and easy to use platform. Note that Blueprint is free to use but credit card processing fees apply.
Couples looking for hyper-specific items, experiences, airline tickets, or hotel stays will particularly like Zola. The easy-to-use wedding registry website allows couples to list items from any website on the internet (from local artists’ websites to boutique hotel properties). Zola lets couples customize exactly what they want or need without feeling stuck with specific partner retailers and websites. Zola also offers a plain old cash fund that allows couples to spend at their own discretion. Couples can also benefit from Zola's zero-fee cash fund option—the lowest fees of any registry on the list—by opting to have guests send cash contributions directly to their Venmo account.
4. Traveler’s Joy
Traveler’s Joy launched nearly two decades ago, but the honeymoon registry website has remained current and relevant with comprehensive travel planning and an easy registration process. The travel-focused site offers sample registry lists based on the destination or type of vacation you’re planning, including everything from first class upgrades to covering visa fees and museum tickets. Traveler’s Joy also breaks down more expensive registry items into smaller chunks, allowing guests to contribute what they’re comfortable with, ideal for big-ticket items and group purchases.
5. The Knot Cash Fund
The Knot Cash Fund is more rudimentary than most honeymoon-focused registry sites, but the basic platform is a great option for couples who haven’t sorted out exactly where or what they’re hoping to do for their honeymoon just yet. The cash fund registry asks couples to provide a few words about what they’re hoping to spend the money on, and then takes care of everything else. The Knot also allows you to create a more conventional registry alongside the cash fund should you want to do a hybrid honeymoon/traditional registry as well.
6. Honeymoon Wishes
Honeymoon Wishes was made for busy newlyweds who already know exactly where and what they want in their honeymoon getaway. The comprehensive platform has dozens of partnerships with major hotels and destinations and actually allows guests to contribute directly to the partner hotel or property without the newlyweds needing to worry about booking themselves. Think of it as a no-fees travel agent whose only goal is to book—and pay for—all your reservations; all you have to worry about is packing your bags and getting to the altar.
