We know along the way registries can become a really daunting task and truly a hassle. But we have found a new way to register- receive a package. Now you must be thinking a package? What does that mean? We are starting to see couples create funds guests can donate to. Whether it's their mortgage, new car, or even honeymoon!
While it's something unconventional, we've seen many couples feel less stressed and enjoy this form of a gift! How great would it be to have your honeymoon paid for? Or help a down payment on a home? Guest's will feel like they are giving you something you truly want! Even if you may not take a honeymoon right away or going at all, you can still registry for something you want.
We've seen even couples add some gift cards for airlines or hotels in their registry. And just like any registry, your honeymoon one should be personal.
