Honeymoon + Registry

Many of you have been asking about our honeymoon, and I realized that we never shared our final plan! After our wedding this weekend, we’ll be flying to Italy and Greece for two weeks. We can’t wait. We’re flying into Naples, then going to Positano for four nights, then Rome for three nights, then Santorini for four. It will be such an exciting, romantic, over-the-top trip! (Any last-minute recommendations? I would LOVE to hear. xo)

To help afford our honeymoon, we skipped the regular household registry and created a honeymoon registry. We signed up with buy-our-honeymoon (don’t worry, guests never see the tacky name!). The honeymoon registry has worked out really well and made our honeymoon possible; I’d highly recommend it to anyone. xo

  4. Great Place.. it’s been a while since my husband and I went to great places with the extra ordinary views. how i wish we can have a Honeymoon registry soon. thank for the idea!

  5. We agree with you – most of our couples at AGreatAffair.com Gift Registry register for all the basics of their honeymoon, like airfare, beachfront resorts, spa treatments and meals. Also, with our registry couples can register for anything else, inlcuding big ticket items, such as things like a home downpayment, their wedding planner, golf lessons, even a new family pet.

    We are finding that when given the choice, couples would prefer to register for experiences and big ticket items over traditional gifts like towels and linens.

    I would be happy to answer any questions you have regarding these registries. Have a great wedding!

  6. Mazel tov! This is the best idea and we were just talking about how we don’t need anything for our house but we want to take a fabulous trip! You did it in such a classy way!

  7. Thank you for mentioning the benefits of a honeymoon registry and describing the attributes behind this increasingly mainstream registry option for engaged couples.

    It is great to see how popular the honeymoon registry is becoming. When Traveler’s Joy first started accepting Members over five years ago, we realized there were a large number of engaged couples that were not satisfied with the diversity of the traditional wedding registry market. Since then, the honeymoon registry has become a mainstream option for brides and grooms and the industry has experienced significant growth.

    We are proud to have helped tens of thousands of couples honeymoon at destinations they may never have considered – a great feeling for everyone at Traveler’s Joy.

    I encourage you to contact us with any questions about our service. Most importantly, enjoy your honeymoon!

  10. When I get married I’m totally doing this, what a fabulous idea – then you get to enjoy a luxury vacation with the help of your friends. Enjoy!

  11. I went to Positano earlier this year…AMAZING! Don’t miss Capri too!

  12. don’t forget to visit Atrani when you are in Positano, it is the most beautiful place at the Amalfitana! Been there this summer and its soooo beautiful and romantic.

  13. I live in Greece and I am so glad you are coming to Santorini for your honey moon! Dont forget to watch the sunset in Oia!

    Have a great time.

  14. There are so many amazing places in Italy..They attract visitors..That idea is cool..I would love to be there..

  15. Oh, I’ve been in Italy this summer.. In Santorini too. It’s an amazing place everyone has to visit. I am so happy for you! Wish you the best!

  16. Oh, thank you for the honeymoon registry Web site recommendation! I want to do that for my registry, since we already have most of the household stuff we need. I was wondering where and how.

    I hope you have a magical time on your honeymoon!

  17. I know you will have an amazing time. My husband and I stayed in Positano for 3 days about 10 years ago and its one of our most favorite places in the world–truly magical. Best wishes!!!

  19. Dear Jo,
    Firstly, Congratulations!!
    *Jumps up and down and claps hands exitedly*
    How embarrassing.
    Anyway, I know it is such a given,
    but please please please get to the Trevi fountain.
    It is stunningly romantic at night and during the day there’s a lovely little gelato place on the corner.
    Enjoy Darling =)
