With the help of our Traveler's Joy registry, we had received enough gifts to celebrate New Years at the Giltretrind Restaurant at the Stein Erikson Lodge. Nestled on the side of Deer Valley Mountain Resort, we watched the snow-cats groom the mountain while enjoying our five-course meal, including steak and Maine lobster.
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 honeymoon was an amazing three and a half weeks, but it couldn't have happened without our friends and family, and of course Traveler's Joy, who made it really easy to organize.
We chose a honeymoon registry because we had lived together for over a year and since we had combined two houses, we were in no need of the traditional wedding gifts. I discovered Traveler's Joy after researching different sites, and it seemed to be the best and easiest to use.
With a year to reflect, now I'm not so sure what was more fun: building our Traveler's Joy website or the honeymoon itself.
Each of us owned our own homes prior to living together and had many of the housewares that newly engaged couples typically needed. And while there were a few household items that we registered for at the local department store, we wanted our guests to be a part of our honeymoon journey. Traveler's Joy fulfilled that desire and allowed us to get even more out of the once-in-a-lifetime vacation that was starting to take form.
