After all the hecticness of the wedding being able to take 2 weeks in what I believe one of the most beautiful countries in the world was a once in a lifetime chance and because of Traveler's Joy and all our family and friends who got SO excited about our honeymoon they helped us make our dream a reality.
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.
Anyone traveling to Tahiti knows in advance that it is an expensive place to visit. The rooms, food and tours all add up quickly. Traveler's Joy allowed us to do more.
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).
As we started developing our registry, Traveler's Joy helped us in many ways. The registry acted as a guide to our honeymoon, helped us budget more effectively, and made it possible for our guests to make monetary gifts in a wide range of choices. The ability for our family and friends to make the choices of gifts based on a monetary level and specific activities motivated them to give more generously and with more creativity than with normal registries.
Traveler's Joy was "the bomb" - we've been living together forever and didn't need more stuff, so registering for a honeymoon trip was perfect. It bankrolled our stay and allowed us to have an amazing experience!
