As we started thinking about our honeymoon, we realized we wanted to make it just as special and memorable as our wedding day. We thought it would be great to minimize the "stuff" factor.
We chose a honeymoon registry because we had lived together for over a year and since we had combined two houses, we were in no need of the traditional wedding gifts. I discovered Traveler's Joy after researching different sites, and it seemed to be the best and easiest to use.
I’d heard about Traveler’s Joy from a co-worker and as soon as I saw the website, it was extremely apparent that this was the right type of registry for us. Our friends and family couldn’t wait to start contributing to our celebratory retreat.
Thanks to Traveler’s Joy and the generosity of our friends and family we enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon. Everyone got excited about the registry and agreed that it was a great way to participate in our joy as they saw the photos of what their gifts had enabled us to experience.
Getting married later in life means you've already got your toasters, garlic presses, and Egyptian cotton sheets. So when confronted with the daunting task of registering for gifts, we were stymied. We didn't really need any things. What we really wanted was to go on a trip of a lifetime that we could not otherwise afford.
We really went to town during our days in Bora Bora and enjoyed some wonderful activities courtesy of our generous friends and the ease of using Traveler's Joy. We took jet-skis around the entire island, which gave us brilliant photo opportunities and a real adrenaline pumping high.
