Honeymoon Registry

A Honeymoon trip is certainly every engaged couple's dream. Travel brochures will be beckoning with a panache of exotic locations, assorted accommodations and fare facts. Your choices are mind-boggling and you can add to that the confusion of friendly advice from all angles. Although arriving at a mutually compatible honeymoon choice does take some time and plenty of thought . . . truly half the fun is the planning.

There is a new and innovative option available to you within the travel industry. Some progressive travel related firms are offering bridal couples a Honeymoon Travel Registry. A Honeymoon Registry affords an opportunity for your friends and relatives to contribute to your dream vacation through Honeymoon Gift Certificates. Just as with a Bridal Registry, proper etiquette dictates that you inform friends and relatives about your Honeymoon Registry by requesting your bridesmaids, mothers and relatives to spread the word.

Check the Wedding Guide Directory under Honeymoon Registries to find a travel agent to assist you. These travel professionals are ready and willing to answer your questions and help you with planning the perfect honeymoon.

The firm you choose for your Registry will help you develop a travel package to match your budget. They will handle the coordination of travel gifts presented by friends and relatives. Generally, this may be accomplished in one of two ways. The gift amount may be paid directly to the agency and then credited to your honeymoon account or a gift certificate may be purchased and presented directly to the bridal couple. Some agencies may have developed computerized programs to accurately keep track of gifts received toward your trip. This allows easily accessible information for current updates any time you wish to know the status of your trip. Be sure to ask for a print-out of the names and addresses of those who are gifting your honeymoon registry. You will want to promptly acknowledge their gift with a "Thank You" note.
In addition, the firm you select for your Honeymoon Registry may offer several locations throughout the country as well as a toll free number for out of town gifts using credit cards.
