As we began to consider registering for gifts, we realized we didn’t need the slow-cookers, the towels and the wine glasses typical of a wedding registry. We truly believe that money is best spent on making memories and good stories, so we were elated to find Traveler’s Joy!
Having lived together since college, we had accumulated enough things to clutter our lives; the last thing we needed was more pots and pans. Friends of ours had used a Traveler's Joy registry for a honeymoon trip to Italy. We decided to follow their idea and use Traveler's Joy for our wedding road trip.
Our choice to spend our June, 2014 honeymoon in the Andes came pretty easily. See, six years earlier, we’d fallen in love there.
We spent a total of about $8,000 on the honeymoon, including airfare and hotels, and most of that was covered by the generosity of our family and friends through Traveler's Joy.
Our honeymoon was perfect from start to finish, and between our regular expenses and paying for our wedding, we wouldn't have been able to finance it without Traveler's Joy providing us with this amazing way to hit our friends for honeymoon funds without having to explicitly ask them for money.
Finding Traveler's Joy was the perfect answer for us because our friends and family could help us decide what to do, where to go and how to explore. We could challenge our guests to give us a honeymoon we would never forget - and that they certainly did!
