Grandma is my the best friend

People gifting through online registries has become the norm. So why would you want to include a traditional registry if you already have your honeyfund set up?

Here’s the scoop! Some of your guests (especially older family members) might not like or understand the honeymoon fund concept. You can find a polite way to explain the concept to them, and include it on your honeyfund page:


(Shhh! to the shock of your loving grandmother, more than 70 percent of couples live together before marriage these days. That’s 7-8 million couples who live together before marriage!)

For those who just do not get it (hello, Grandma!), here’s the BEST thing to do: Include BOTH.

Traditional registries like Macy’s offer a broad mix of fun and everyday gifts AND items for your honeymoon! Sure, a new Kitchen Aid Mixer and some dinnerware will come in handy, but Macy’s also has some cool new luggage for your honeymoon?

In addition to making Grandma happy, you’ll also receive 10% off remaining registry items for 90 days post-wedding. And, for everything you buy with your card, you’ll receive 10% of the purchase price in rewards dollars, and for everything your guests buy off the registry, you’ll receive 5% of the purchase price in rewards dollars. It’s a win-win!

So, how do you decide which registry type is right for you?

Remember! Once you register for your favorite store above, make sure to link your registry onto your honeyfund page. 🙂
