Having lived together since college, we had accumulated enough things to clutter our lives; the last thing we needed was more pots and pans. Friends of ours had used a Traveler's Joy registry for a honeymoon trip to Italy. We decided to follow their idea and use Traveler's Joy for our wedding road trip.
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.
Our honeymoon was an unforgettable opportunity to see some of the most spectacular scenery in the U.S., and our Traveler's Joy registry allowed our guests to become part of the experience.
As we began to consider registering for gifts, we realized we didn’t need the slow-cookers, the towels and the wine glasses typical of a wedding registry. We truly believe that money is best spent on making memories and good stories, so we were elated to find Traveler’s Joy!
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 spent a total of about $8,000 on the honeymoon, including airfare and hotels, and most of that was covered by the generosity of our family and friends through Traveler's Joy.
