Honeyfund – The Non-Traditional Way to Register

March 24th, 2011 by     


Poinsettia Dude & I have lived together for almost 3 years, which means that we are not in need of the typical registry items such as towels, sheets, pillows, silverware, dinnerware, etc.  Because we don’t really ‘need’ anything, it makes it difficult to set up a registry!  What do you give a couple who has everything?  Money! But of course, it is tacky and rude to ask for money…everyone knows that!  So we registered for the next best thing!  Our Honeymoon!

We found a honeymoon registry called HoneyFund!  I set up an account and designated gift contributions so guest can easily see what their cash contributions will go towards.  Instead of handing over $50 in a card, they would choose to pay for a portion of our flights or an excursion or anything else they wanted to help with.

Here is a sample of the “registry”:

We have friends who used Honeyfund last summer and the contributions almost paid for their entire 10 day Costa Rican vacation! I secretly hope that our honeymoon registry will also be a success!

    I LOVE the idea of the honeyfund!! I wish my guests were tech-savvy and would go for this but I don’t see it going over very well. But I love that it’s available!

    I also LOVE the idea of Honeyfund!

    I’m thinking of doing the same thing but want to address this first: A couple of friends recently registered through Honeyfund. Signature of my procrastination, I was looking for their wedding gift the week before their wedding. I found their Honeyfund and decided to pay for their couple’s massage on their honeymoon. However, what I didn’t realize was that I can’t pay for it right there. It just claims that you will pay for it, then you give a check…which would be fine except that I couldn’t get it to them in time! Now I can’t figure out whether I should just mail them a check, or a giftcard to Massage Envy!! So embarassing. Any suggestions?

    Freesia– I would go for the gift card! It’s pretty self-explanatory :)
