Be back August 4th!

I’ll be wed on July 27, 2008 and then we will be on our honeymoon in Jamaica!

While this is, by far, the most expensive trip we’ve been on as a couple; we found ways to save money even on our honeymoon.

We booked our trip during the green season of Jamaica (which is also a euphemism for hurricane season- so please keep us in your thoughts!) which is much cheaper than high season.

We also booked during a 30% off special months ago.

But by far the biggest cost saver for this honeymoon is:
Our honeymoon registry!

Yes, we adore Crate and Barrel, but we already have two apartments worth of stuff in our current apartment. So, we have been incredibly grateful to the people who have already contributed over $1,500 towards our honeymoon!

While it took some cajoling to get my parents to sign on, and a few raised eyebrows to ignore; the step from people giving us gift cards to C&B to giving us a gift card for our honeymoon wasn’t the leap we expected it to be.

How do people feel about honeymoon registries?

We love it that you have a honeymoon registry!

It is great to see how popular the honeymoon registry is becoming. When Traveler's Joy first started accepting Members over four years ago, we realized there was a large number of engaged couples that were not satisfied with the diversity of the traditional wedding registry market. Since then, the honeymoon registry has become a mainstream option for brides and grooms and the industry has experienced significant growth.
