Amazingly, using airline miles to cover our airfare, and our Traveler's Joy registry contributions of $1,200, we spent only $300 on our honeymoon trip. Between the value of the dollar in Thailand, our awesome travel guide books, and our kind friends and family, we had the adventure of a lifetime on a very limited budget.
Our honeymoon registry was so popular with our wedding guests that we got basically everything we asked for and then had to figure out how to fit it all in. In the end, we received almost $4,000 toward honeymoon activities. It really made our honeymoon the dream vacation we wanted it to be.
I researched many honeymoon registry sites, but it was Traveler's Joy that offered the easiest access with the most tools. I also loved that my husband and I could build our site ourselves, adding pictures of the items on our registry, setting the pricing as well as adding our own slide shows. The Traveler's Joy site was a DIY bride's dream!
We had already been to France and wanted to go back to Europe for our honeymoon, but didn't think we could afford it after all our wedding expenses. Once we discovered Traveler's Joy, we realized that if we registered there, we just might be able to pull it off.
One of our other favorite memories that Traveler's Joy allowed us to enjoy was a romantic couples massage in two small wood cabanas on the resort grounds. Rain started to fall during our time, which only added a beautiful harmony to an already special moment.
After discovering Traveler's Joy we signed up immediately. We decided that creating memories in Bali that would last a lifetime was more important to us than acquiring household goods, especially since we were going to teach abroad for several years after the wedding.
