Disrupting The Traditional Wedding Registry
Gone are the days of registering for crystal vases. Today’s couples are much more likely to put a grill, large appliances, or even honeymoon expenses on their registry than they are to put fine china or serving ware. This type of option is often called a cash registry, and it gives the couples a lot more flexibility in how they can use their wedding gifts! Why has this shift happened? And how do more traditional family members or wedding guests feel about it? With us to discuss is Sara Margolis, CEO of Honeyfund!
About Sara Margulis of Honeyfund:

Sara’s winning appearance on Shark Tank in 2014 and partnership with Kevin O’Leary (‘Mr. Wonderful’) propelled her into various media outlets, both national and international.

About Honeyfund + Hilton Partnership
Today, Honeyfund, the #1 honeymoon and universal gift registry site, and Hilton are making it official with a new partnership, streamlining the experience for couples to fund their dream wedding and/or honeymoon. With Honeyfund and Hilton, couples’ funds will go farther, allowing them to Take the Honey and Run from all their cares and enjoy the best wedding and honeymoon possible.
Couples using Honeyfund for their Hilton destination wedding or honeymoon will receive the following exclusive benefits: a room upgrade for the couple (when their wedding is hosted at the Conrad Tulum, Waldorf Astoria Cancun, Conrad Punta de Mita, or Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort properties*), a Honeyfund Elite account upgrade ($29 value), and access to giveaways and promotions featuring extra honeymoon funds, free wedding ceremonies (where available) and more.
To debut the partnership, Hilton and Honeyfund are hosting a sweepstakes for five nights at the beachfront Hilton Vallarta Riviera All-Inclusive Resort, where the winner will enjoy an Ocean Front Master Suite, plus all meals and beverages. It offers a picturesque private beach, two glistening pools, a spa, a fitness center, and dozens of craft cocktail bars and specialty restaurants offering a variety of cuisines. It also boasts a variety of activities to keep guests active during their stay including hiking, cycling, and yoga on the beach.
“2020 was a trying time for couples,” said Sara Margulis, CEO, and co-founder of Honeyfund. “Hundreds of thousands of couples postponed their weddings and honeymoons, sometimes more than once. This partnership and sweepstakes will allow weary wedding couples to finally go forward with that dream destination wedding — and take the honeymoon they deserve.”
Hilton boasts a rapidly expanding resorts portfolio in premier destinations, including the Caribbean, French Polynesia, Hawaii, and Mexico, some of the top honeymoon destinations, according to Honeyfund. Hilton offers a host of resort amenities, activities, and iconic accommodations and service. In addition to exotic resorts, couples can use their funds at any Hilton property around the world, allowing for a personalized and memorable experience during this exciting chapter in their lives.
