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.

Are you thinking an all-inclusive destination wedding? Maybe something extravagant, yet comfortable and unstructured that you can have friends and family travel to? We know you want a day like no other ” so here’s some wedding venue alternatives that may inspire you!

Just like your future spouse, the setting for your wedding should sweep you off your feet. If you have huge families and friends on both sides, or just a select few, you’ll want to think affordable, easy to travel to, and a place most would agree will be fun and stress-free!

Once you find that place, here is the best way to make the rest happen:

Rent a Big Place to Fit Everyone (maybe even a castle) and Share the Costs

You’ll want a spacious yet private place for your family, and friends. Beautiful rentals from our friends at HomeAway give you that PLUS more amenities than hotels (often for less than half the cost) giving you peace of mind you and your loved ones will need.

Tell me, can you picture you and your guests here?

Share one place so everyone will save a lot of money (example: $1,000 a night/50 people = $20 a night to stay in a castle!) and create extra sweet memories together. For your wedding guests who prefer their own spot, suggest they book places in the same neighborhood so everyone is close together for the fun.

For enjoyment, instead of having a rehearsal dinner out, have a chef come to your residence. Hire a local concierge to plan activities for the group and share their contact with guests to make their own plans so everyone can enjoy their vacation.

Renting a comfortable place for everyone at your destination wedding will feel like a home away from home… Plus, if you have a home you want to rent while away, you can turn your home into an income while enjoying your vacation – SCORE!

With over 1.2 million vacation rentals in 190 countries, you can find a luxurious (yet affordable) place to create unforgettable memories for your wedding stay, honeymoon and vacations for years to come, and save money while you’re at it.

Find one that is right for you here.
