Wedding registries have been around for decades and bajillions of couples have gotten linens, towels, vacuum cleaners, dishes, cutlery, etc. thanks to being registered at department stores, kitchen/bath shops and online. In this day and age though, when couples are waiting longer to get married, or maybe it’s not a first marriage, people oftentimes already have all the candlesticks and picture frames they’ll ever need to use (*cough* or to re-gift *cough*). So some engaged couples are looking outside the box and are doing a registry for their honeymoon. Here’s more about it…
Wanderable helps engaged couples fund their honeymoons by offering beautiful free honeymoon registries. Couples simply post items centered around their upcoming honeymoon, from hotel stays to couples massages to snorkeling expeditions, into their Wanderable registry and their friends and family gift the amount that they cost. Founded in 2011, the company is accessible online and through their mobile app.
The setup process is easy and to help lessen the coldness of having a list on a website/app, Wanderable lets you personalize your page completely (they offer a variety of templates), so you can add your own pictures and descriptions for all the things you want to do and make it a more personal experience for your guests.
Wanderable has lists of popular honeymoon destinations based by month, and within each month are suggested activities and reviews for each destination. They also offer itineraries and reviews of Wanderable couples who visited these places.
The process is just as simple for your guests. From Wanderable’s website:
1. SEARCH REGISTRIES: Search our entire website by last name for the registry that you’re looking for, then buy that special couple a gift.
2. GIVE GIFTS SECURELY: Every gift you give with your credit card is secure. Once you confirm your purchase, you are all done! We will guarantee that the couple receives your gift in time.
3. GIFT WRAP: You can also choose to have your message professionally printed and personally gift wrapped in our signature gift envelopes or boxes. We will even send this on your behalf.
4. GIFT NOTIFICATION CARD: After you’ve given your gift, use the link provided in your email confirmation to easily print a complimentary gift notification card to give to the couple.
Honeymoon gifts are in the form of money, which can be sent to the happy couple via direct deposit or a snail mailed check – whichever they prefer.
So if you’re planning on marrying soon and you’d like people to help pay for your honeymoon rather than your new lives together, maybe Wanderable would be a good fit for you. 🙂
