What to buy as a wedding gift for couples who have everything?

If you are one of the many couples who live together before getting married, you’ve probably got all the essentials for your home already. So what to put on your wedding list? Ever wished you could ask your friends and family to contribute towards the cost of your honeymoon? Well now you can.

Because nowadays many Irish couples live together before getting married, they tend to have all the essentials for their home before The Big Day. So what to put on the wedding list? There are only so many glasses or pillowcases you can use, and it’s a bit crass to ask friends for money. Returning unwanted gifts can take up time and cause embarrassment when they’re not on display when the donor is around!

Dublin-based travel company, The Travel Broker has recently come up with the solution to this problem – Ireland’s first honeymoon registry. This web-based service works just like a traditional wedding registry, except instead of glassware, china and linen, guests can contribute towards the cost of your honeymoon. Guests love it too because it’s a great time saver – instead of having to race to the department store where your registry is, they can buy your wedding gift online from home or office.

How does it work?

When you submit a form stating where and when you wish to go on honeymoon, the travel consultants at The Travel Broker will contact you to assist you to plan for your dream honeymoon. If you have a firm idea of where you want to go, The Travel Broker will seek the best deals for you. Or if you are unsure about your destination, The Travel Broker will research options and suggest itineraries for you.

Many couples are opting to have a wedding web page as a central point of information for guests (details and directions to the ceremony and reception, etc). Another great use of the wedding web page is to manage your RSVP’s. Your guests can confirm their attendance by email making it very convenient for you and for them. Of course, the wedding web page links to your honeymoon registry so that guests who enter the site to RSVP will be made aware of this opportunity to purchase the wedding gift online.

The honeymoon registry itself works just like a traditional wedding registry, except it is elements of the honeymoon that can by purchased. All elements are broken down into units of â‚ ¬25, so a guest wishing to spend â‚ ¬100 for example can contribute â‚ ¬50 towards the flight, â‚ ¬25 towards the hotel, and â‚ ¬25 towards extras such as champagne, massages and excursions.

Finally, when you return from your honeymoon refreshed and relaxed, you can publish photos from your trip on the site. All guests who have contributed towards the honeymoon will receive an email to let them know that the photos are up on the site. Naturally, the wedding web page and honeymoon registry are password protected so that only people you invite are able to view them.
