Apart from bridal shower gifts and engagement party presents your honeyfund might be in need of some love. But don’t worry!! Did you know 90% of the wedding gifts are bought the week of your wedding? That means your dream honeymoon is still within in reach.

Make sure your guests know how to give to your honeyfund with these 3 simple steps.

1. E-Mail

Send an email to all your guests right from your honeyfund! The “share” icon at the top of your registry home page is the go-to tool to help your guests learn about your honeyfund.

There you’ll find the  Contacts section which is where you can upload all your wedding guests email addresses to easily message them right from your registry. You’ll want to emerge your guests’ information here before you’re ready to send an email.

Once everyone uploaded in your contacts it’s time to send them an email! Right below Contacts, you’ll find E-mail. Click the “compose” button at the bottom to start drafting your email. We know this can be an “awkward” topic so we’ve drafted an email for you.

We recommend putting your personal touch on the email to show your personality through the email. Your guests want to hear from you and about the exciting honeymoon that awaits as a result of their generous gifting.

2. Show & Tell! 

Technology is great but good old-fashioned word of mouth is even better. The closer your wedding gets the more you’ve probably been asked, “where are you registered?”

Don’t just tell them you’re registered at Honeyfund, show them. Share your custom honeyfund URL in a text, DM or email right from your phone.  Have your URL on hand any time you need it by downloading the Honeyfund app (on Android or on Apple).

Showing is also helpful for guests of a different generation who might not be all that comfortable with modern technology. Some times it’s just easier for

3. Share on social 

Use the Social Sharing tool to create a custom meme of you and your honey you can use to share on social! Facebook is the best for sharing your honeyfund. Why? It’s the one site grandma, mom and dad and even your college friends all use. BUT don’t hesitate to tweet and share your meme on Instagram! The more people who see your post the more likely they are to visit your registry. 

4. Link Your Registry to Your Wedding Website

Your honeyfund registry should be in the same place as all your other wedding information. Linking your honeyfund to your wedding website is the best way for family, friends and wedding guests to easily find your registry. We’ve created helpful videos to make linking your registry as easy as pie. Watch them here.

 

Congratulations! We hope you have a wonderful day. Be sure to enjoy every moment and to make time for each other, it is your day after all.

START SHARING!

Book Based on Your Interests

Before we get started, ask yourself this question: “What do you want out of your honeymoon?”

Do you want to lounge on a beach with a cocktail? Do you want to explore a new city? Do you seek adventure climbing waterfalls or diving a coral reef? Make a list with your spouse-to-be on what it is you both want out of your honeymoon.

Once you have a general focus of what you want out of your honeymoon head to the “Interests” section on Groupon Getaways homepage (link to interests) to find the best location/getaway based on your interest for your honeymoon, i.e., a romantic getaway, outdoors & adventures or a beach vacay.

Find Top Deals on Top Destinations

Now that you have a general honeymoon “theme” it’s time to find that one epic location to take your dream honeymoon. Narrowing your search down to just one place can be a bit overwhelming. Groupon makes it easy to search for that perfect destination with their Top Destination list.

To make things super simple search from Groupon’s top 10 destinations list of their most popular vacay-getaways. From NYC to Punta Cana, each location features top deals at premium resorts with airfare included. That’s right, airfare is included!

If you want to branch out, easily search by geographic regions around the world from one set place to find the perfect destination for you.

Save Big on Bundles

Once you’ve figured out where to go (congratulations!) it’s time to start figuring out where to stay and how you’ll get there. But finding the best deal can be overwhelming with thousands of deals and limited time offers flashing in front of you as you read review after review trying to find the perfect place to stay.

Cut out all the noise and find bundled air+hotel deals all in one place with  Groupon Getaways’ “air-inclusive trips”. For the price of just the flight alone, find multi-day bundles like a 13 day trip to Thailand with guided tours for $1,399 to 6 days in Paris for only $799.
