You spoke, we improved!

You Spoke we Listened

Over the past few months we’ve had some customers contact us to say that they felt the registry could be improved with a few extra features they felt were necessary as they set up their registries. We love customer feedback, and our goal is to have an online honeymoon registry offering not only the most beautiful registries out there, but also the site which gives you the most control over the look and functionality of your registry. So, we’ve taken the feedback on board and built those features into our product!

Here’s a little update on the new features you can use when creating your registry:

Choose your currency

People in America like to use US dollars in their registries… people in England like to use pounds... you get the picture. Fair enough. Now you can select the currency you want to work with in your registry from a wide range of options. After all, the money is going directly into your bank account, so it makes sense to be the currency used in your country. Simply select the currency you want to work in on the “Account Information” page, as shown below.

Let more than one person choose a particular gift

Clearly, this function is not necessary for a standard gift option – why would you need 15 souvenir T-shirts, for example? That’s the reason why we didn’t include this option in the first place. However, a few customers have pointed out that it is useful for certain types of gifts, especially charity donations. If you nominate charity donations as a gift, there’s no reason to limit only one person to giving the gift, but you also wouldn’t want to repost the same gift option 15 times on your registry just in case that many people want to choose it.

By the same reasoning, it’s also useful if you want to give multiple people the option to contribute to a larger gift, such as flight tickets or a flight upgrade. It’s up to you, but we would suggest you let people know if they are contributing to a gift rather than giving it outright; many guests particularly like using Our Honeymoon Registry because they have given an actual gift experience rather just than donating money. That said, “contribution” gifts, so to speak, can be an easy way to add extra gift options if you’ve run out of ideas for different price ranges that you’d like to include, as you can make it whatever price you want. Mainly, it’s another option for you to use if want to – the choice is yours! To use this function, tick the box on the “Edit Gift” page, as shown below.

So there you have it: two more ways you can personalise your registry just the way you like it. Feel free to call or email if you have any queries or suggestions of your own – we love feedback!

Announcing Our Honeymoon Registry

Announcing Our Honeymoon Registry

Our Honeymoon Registry is an online gift registry service that allows wedding guests to contribute to the honeymoon instead of giving traditional wedding presents, and we’re really excited to finally be launching to the public!

Not to be clichéd – but it’s been a long journey. The concept initially came from the company director’s real-life wedding experience back in 2006. Since then, we’ve been honing the design over several years on a steady stream of couples who saw it at their friend’s wedding and asked if we could do one for them too. So with lots of use, lots of adjustments from the feedback, and (thankfully!!) lots of positive responses from wedding guests whenever it’s used, we’re happy that it’s finally ready to go out into the online world!

What makes Our Honeymoon Registry unique is that guests can give an actual event in your travels. This can be anything you can think up... maybe some concert tickets, a massage, a game at Yankee Stadium… the sky’s the limit (although sky-diving makes a great gift!). It’s really personal, and guests know their gift will form part of the wedding memories you’ll have for the rest of your life.

We also think Our Honeymoon Registry is a cut above the rest because of the way we handle guest payments. More specifically: we don’t! When we looked at using other registries for our own weddings, we really didn’t like the way they were clearly manhandling the money, and charging commission on gift payments meant for the bride and groom. So we decided with Our Honeymoon Registry the payment is made directly to the bride and groom either through a bank direct deposit, cash or cheque.

So with a final BIG thank-you to all the people who’ve given us such support and positive feedback over the past few years, and congratulations to the newly-engaged couples who are checking out this site, we hope Our Honeymoon Registry keeps on living up to its motto of giving couples the honeymoon of their dreams AND being such a gorgeous travel registry all their friends will be inspired to go travelling too!
