There’s so many things that you plan for when you’re planning a wedding. Most of them having to do with vendors, décor, and timelines, but you also are planning for your life after the big day as well! Creating your registry is one of the biggest tasks of planning for you and your fiancé to make sure you’re all set in your home once you get back from the honeymoon. Another trend that we’ve seen hop on the table in the past few years is the honeymoon fund, so we wanted to take a second and look at the difference between the two to help you choose which one you’d like to make for your wedding day!
Store registries are wonderful for couples who are just starting their lives together and need anything and everything for their new home. You can wander through multiple stores scanning away for the registry because you may not have everything you need one of you have been on your own for quite a while. Store registries are the best of both worlds because couples can not only scan things they want for their homes and get exactly what they want, but they can also put gift cards on the registry for any future purchases they might not think of right away. This even helps out guests who wait until the last minute (c’mon, we all have those friends!) because even if everything else on the registry is bought, they can buy a gift card and they know you will still get something you want for your future house!
The other type of registry that couples have fallen in love with over the years is the Honeymoon Fund. It’s perfect for couples who may already have a house because they don’t need the all of the homey things, but they would love a little help paying for their honeymoon after the big day! It’s one of the best things to not have to worry about paying for an expensive vacation right after a wedding, so why not let your guests help out a little?! And, if you happen to get more than you need, then you can even use some of the fund to pay for other things you would like as well!
