It helped so much that we used Traveler's Joy as our primary registry. I lived in my house for five years and did not need any of the "traditional" wedding gifts, so a honeymoon registry was the perfect registry for us.
We took about a thousand pictures (literally) and when we sent out our thank you notes to the people who contributed to the Traveler's Joy web site we included picture of the places they had "given" us. That was a really big hit, everyone was really happy to be able to see what we did with our time in Ireland.
Our wedding budget was on the economical side and after months of being frugal and thrifty in our planning, the last thing we wanted to worry about on our honeymoon was money.
We never would have been able to make our dream honeymoon a possibility without Traveler's Joy. The cruise and excursions would have cost us about $5,000, but our friends and family members helped us to make our dream a reality.
Our heaven on earth honeymoon was enabled in no small part by the gifts made to our Traveler's Joy registry. Our guests raved about being able to give us an experience we would treasure for the rest of our lives.
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.
