Few things feel more awkward than asking your guests for wedding gifts – perhaps you’ve lived together for years and don’t need any more pots and pans, but you don’t feel comfortable asking for cash outright. Perhaps you’re unsure how much to ask for.
Whatever your dilemma, we’ve put together four helpful hints to help you understand honeymoon registries and just how they might help you give your guests the opportunity to get you the perfect gift.

Honeymoon registries like Honeypot Registry allow you to build a personalised online gift registry – but instead of choosing kitchen appliances or linens, you choose parts of your honeymoon. Been dreaming of getting to a far-off tropical destination? Ask for contributions to your flights. Would love to go skiing in Japan but can’t quite afford it? Why not ask your guests? Choose anything you can think of and add it as an item on your registry.

The way a honeymoon registry works is that guests choose whether to give you the cost of the whole gift or an amount towards it –the cash gets transferred to your account, while guests still feel like they’ve given you a special gift. After all, helping get you to the Eiffel Tower is a much more exciting gift than just getting cash out of the ATM. You can even send them a photo of you at the Eiffel Tower – much more personalised than just saying thanks for cash.

Well okay, if you put 500 different items on your registry, it MIGHT be a bit of overkill… But generally no-one’s going to be offended if you put heaps of options on your registry – after all, it allows them to choose something that they think would be special coming from them.
Everyone will give a different amount towards your wedding registry, so try to include a mix of both smaller items (such as cocktails on the beach or a dinner out) with bigger items (such as concert tickets or skydiving). That way people have lots of choice and can give at a level they feel comfortable with.

The best part is, you don’t have to restrict yourself to just your honeymoon – you can ask for absolutely anything! Try asking for contributions to a lounge suite, dinner out as newlyweds, a new TV, or even help saving for a home deposit. Whatever you ask for, guests will know that they’re contributing to something that will make you really happy.
They’ve been popular overseas for years – and now New Zealand has its very own honeymoon registry. Visit www.honeypotregistry.co.nz to find out more and get your own personalised registry set up – ready for your guests to help you get the honeymoon of your dreams.
