What happens if you’re getting married but you don’t need any “stuff”? Many times the lucky couple already has home furnishings, household items, a great platter, or a silver gravy boat, but they haven’t been to Greece, Brazil, or on a Mediterranean Cruise they could never afford.

By utilizing an online travel registry you can create a unique itinerary that not only illustrates to guests how much fun you and your soul mate will have, but allows for them to contribute to your special vacation.

On www.honeyfund.com , guests can pamper you with a massage, treat you to a romantic dinner, “shell out” the dough for your scuba diving adventure, and even pay a portion or the entire cost of airfare.

Honeyfund is easy to navigate, has sample registries, a long list of Honeymoon Destinations, and it’s FREE! So forget about unwrapping the usual wedding gifts and start packing for your dream honeymoon.
