Traveler's Joy gave our friends and family the chance to give us something we truly wanted and needed. The website was so easy to create, with simple management and very efficient payment redemption. Getting married in our 30s, we had just combined two homes and did not need all the traditional tangible household goods.
We already had all the kitchen and living gadgets one would normally register for. How many dishes and towels can one household actually need? Every one of our guests who purchased a gift through Traveler's Joy loved the experience and with those gifts, we were able to do everything we wanted on our honeymoon.
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.
Like many people who would register with a website like Traveler's Joy, my husband and I have a true zest for travel. We love experiencing new cultures, unexpected moments, and the thrill of doing something once in a lifetime. Our honeymoon was just that.
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.
Over all our honeymoon was exactly what we wanted. We spent approximately $3,500, plus received $2,460 from our Traveler's Joy registry, which allowed us to pay off some of the trip, go on excursions, get pampered, and upgraded to first class (using miles and fee).
