Q: Why Not Just Receive Gifts and Monetary Contributions at the Shower or Wedding?
Receiving cards with checks and cash right before you depart for your honeymoon makes it difficult to pre-pay any portion of the trip. With most weddings on a weekend, just having the time to deposit the checks and cash before departing is unlikely. Traveler's Joy provides you the opportunity to pre-pay certain parts of your trip and gives you an easy to use system of tracking gifts received.
For example, if you start receiving registry contributions months ahead of your honeymoon, you can already begin making reservations at restaurants at your destination and with tour providers. Setting up a honeymoon registry will also allow you to pre-pay important aspects of your trip, such as round-trip airline tickets or accommodations.
We also allow you to receive gifts toward an experience you will cherish forever. Personalizing a gift with a certain experience or activity is a fabulous way for a guest to be remembered!
