Wedding Registry vs. Honeymoon Fund

| , , , , , , , , , , ,

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!

Wedding Registry

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!

Honeymoon fund

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 Waterfront-Virginia-Beach-Wedding-Lesner-Inn (83)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!

If you’re still teeter tottering on which one to create for your wedding, you can always give the option of both! With either one you choose, you’re going to be getting the presents for the house or the present of a paid in full honeymoon!

    We had such an amazing wedding at the Lesner this past weekend. With all of the hurdles we had to go through with COVID protocols, Alexis, Kim, and Lindsey went above and beyond to make our day feel normal- and it was PERFECT! They were so attentive to detail and helpful with things I had not thought of during the planning process. They took care of every detail and we had nothing to worry about on the day of Our wedding except showing up. I even had some last minute changes to decor that they were able to help with. The food was amazing and the view is seriously one you can’t beat. The sunset deck is Covered, so some rain is not a total game changer- but it also gives the guests a nice break from the reception hall (which is inside), which made our guests comfortable with spacing out during these times. Luckily our weather was perfect and the photos are literally amazing- there is no better view in Virginia Beach. I would highly recommend the Lesner for a wedding !!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

    Girls at the Lesner Inn, Wow! I can’t believe it’s been just about a year since Jon and I came through the doors and knew that this would be the place we say “I do”. You guys are awesome and made planning a breeze even for this bride who didn’t have it all together. Thank you guys so much for everything, our day was perfect!
