However, it is very important to notify our office of all the details. Personally I also think that the people who so fervently despise them, are jealous.
You will select items and activities you'd like to experience on your honeymoon. Start Here Reveal your registry to friends and family, who will purchase gifts for your celebration! Details Here Enjoy your gifts and Remember your honeymoon forever! Using the honeymoon gift registry allows you to pre-plan what you want to do on your honeymoon or at your destination wedding. With the wedding and gift registry, your wedding guests are actually giving you an activity or portion of your honeymoon!
Using this registry is so much more personal than asking your guests outright for cash! Guests will choose something special that they would like to give you as a wedding gift. Unlike getting envelopes with checks in them at the wedding and leaving the next day for your honeymoon trip, the wedding and gift registry allows you to know ahead of time what you will have available for extras and upgrades on your honeymoon or destination wedding.
You can even register to get the word out early, and have gift money to come in to help with the initial costs of the honeymoon trip, as many of our wedding couples do. Receiving all the wonderful gifts your friends and family purchase for your honeymoon is simple.

This is the only fee charged. There are no hidden fees or "bait and switch" to you like other registry sites. For sites that charge a "one time fee" our fees will usually come in less than what you are paying for a "cheap" registry where you're really just asking for money. Your friends and family can know they are actually buying real gifts for you that we will help organize at your resort and not just donating to a tacky honeymoon fund. Our team is here to answer calls toll free, process checks and credit card transactions of your guests that need help and are not as tech savvy.
Unfortunately anyone using a credit card will be charged the 2. The service charge covers your account management, unlimited fund transfers, coordination with your Sandals resort or Island Routes tour, your wedding web site, order processing, gift announcements, email wizard, merchant account fees that we are charged and toll free live customer service to assist your guests. This is not simply a fee for processing monies; it's a fee so that we can continue to provide outstanding services for you.
To run this registry, we have a dedicated team, providing a high quality and professional service. Store registries carry costs such as shipping, taxes and gift-wrap charges to cover the services. The service fee this registry charges is often less than these charges imposed on your guests. The honeymoon registry saves your guests time and gas with the comfort and convenience of purchasing their gift from their home or office.
And, there is no hassle or embarrassment of returning or exchanging unwanted gifts for you! We provide downloadable announcements for you, at no charge, to let your friends and family know about your honeymoon registry and wedding website.

After certain gifts have been purchased from your gift registry, you will be notified via email. A HM registry is pretty much the same thing. I think that you will find that most Knotties, myself included, find these very tacky.
It is really just another way of asking for money. If guest ask you what your daughter and her FI would like as a wedding gift you can always say "well, their house is already pretty complete, but I know that they are saving up for a honeymoon. The guest is still being asked for money. It's totally acceptable for you not the bride and groom to spread, via word of mouth, that the couple would really appreciate cash. I think registries are bad across the board, but I know I'm in the minority in that opinion.
November edited November I don't think it is "very tacky" at all. In my time on TK, I've come to the opinion that it depends on your individual guests. Ask around a bit if they think it's something they can get on board with, etc. If it is, then by all means, shoot for a HM registry. If it's not, then have them do a very small traditional registry and go by word of mouth that they are really saving up for a honeymoon, etc.
You will always have people that prefer to give a tangible gift no matter where they are registered, and you will always have people who prefer to give cash no matter where they are registered, so it's really just finding a balance between your guests' ideals about it and going from there.
Asking for cash is never appropriate even when you try to disguise it as a HM registry. If a guest wants to give cash gift, they will give it on their own without being asked for it. People aren't stupid, they know cash is always appreciated. Mary Click here for my bio! I don't think it is tacky at all. However, me and FI are going to St. Lucia next April through Sandals.
Another reason is because I have seen alot of posts on this website about the cost of certain tours you can take through Sandals and what a waste it is. Not saying all are a waste, but it seems like most people had a better time for their money if they paid a separate vendor to do the same that Sandals offers and most that you read have gotten more for their money.
