One thing that my hubby and I didn't want to skimp on when it came to our wedding was the honeymoon. Even though we were paying for our wedding ourselves, we knew we wanted a REAL honeymoon– that lovely vacation with each other to bask in the glow of newlywed life, lie by the ocean and drink fruity beverages with little umbrellas in them. We saw eye to eye on this, but sadly our budget didn't allow too much room for a spectacular trip, which I'm sure many budget brides can relate to. In the end we booked our trip on a no-interest credit card and made payments on it for the next year. Not the ideal way to take a honeymoon, y'all– but we did what we had to do to make it happen.
These days engaged folks are lucky that honeymoon registries are really taking off– many couples are already established in their homes with all the dishes and bath towels and coffee makers they need.

Sounds easy right? Listen to this couple's testimonial of the Australian honeymoon they were able to take thanks to Honeymoon Pixie's honeymoon registry:
Honeymoon Pixie was perfect for us! I researched many honeymoon registries and chose them for their ease of setup (only took a few minutes), usability and cost – they’re the cheapest of all honeymoon registries.
My fiancé and I really wanted to have a memorable trip to Australia so we created a honeymoon registry with all the fun stuff we wanted (eg hotel upgrades, snorkeling, restaurants, surfing, etc). Our guests loved this and we totally maxed out our honeymoon registry compared to our other traditional registry. Once we had collected the gifts, Honeymoon Pixie sent us a check right away for the balance. Having the extra cash definitely made the honeymoon more enjoyable and allowed us to have a very romantic couple weeks. I’d highly recommend Honeymoon Pixie.
Doesn't it sound so stress-free and great? You can read all the fine print and details here. If you're not sure how to integrate an alternative registry into your wedding, Honeymoon Pixie has great Alternate Registry Etiquette advice. The thing I love most about the idea of a honeymoon registry is that your guests get to gift you experiences which in the end, I think, is so much better than stuff. What do you think about using a honeymoon registry? Are you planning to use an alternate registry for your big day?
