With honeymoon funds becoming the new norm for wedding gifting, couples can now ask for what they really want on their honeymoon. But you might have never heard of them. So what exactly is a honeymoon fund? And why will it make your life easier when planning your wedding?

This post will explain precisely why a honeymoon fund is perfect for you and how different features will positively impact your special day. Here are the essential wedding registry features of Hitchd to make gift-giving at your wedding easier than ever before.

Find a Honeymoon Registry That Is Easy to Set Up

The first essential feature of a honeymoon fund is how easy it is to set up. With a few simple clicks, you can create your own custom honeymoon fund and start collecting donations from family and friends. Most honeymoon fund options come with ready-made templates that help you quickly and easily explain why you need the money and what it will be used for, making it easy to set up a honeymoon fund.

With Hitchd, you’ll have a home page in which you can upload a photo of yourself and your fiance so that your guests are greeted by the couple instantly. You can also write an introduction to your honeymoon fund, telling your guests what you plan to do with the money and how they can contribute. This part can be a little daunting, especially if you don’t see yourself as an articulate writer; that’s why we have integrated a text helper with several options to aid with writing your introduction.

Having a homepage personalized specifically to you makes your honeymoon registry look professional and personal. Having the home page prevents your guests from thinking the honeymoon fund is a tacky choice.


Have a Wedding Registry That Offers Unique Gifts

With Hitchd, you can add any wedding gift you like. From experiences like skydiving or spa treatments to honeymoon essentials like tickets and accommodation. The beauty of a honeymoon fund is that you can ask for money and registry items. This means that you have the freedom to get what you want, and guests don’t have to struggle with finding something they think you’ll need or enjoy during your honeymoon. With Hitchd, you can also include physical wedding gifts like on a traditional wedding registry, maybe for the odd thing currently missing around your home.

We have a range of high-quality gift templates to choose from. With these, we focus more on quality than quantity (even though there are still many templates to choose from). Hitchd uses data to create gifts; we routinely look at custom gifts made and search terms within the library to ensure we capture the needs of couples looking to create a honeymoon registry. As you can imagine, these trends change over time.


Awesome Content Library

There is a vast library of high-quality images too. You can add photos to customize your home page or use them to show different activities you’ve planned during the honeymoon. You can add a different image to highlight the gift’s critical elements of each gift. For example, if you are planning a surf trip, you could select an image of some surfers in the sea.

If you want to use your own content, you can also do that. Hitchd allows you to upload images, videos, and other media of your choice. The possibilities are endless when it comes to creating content for your honeymoon fund.

Allow Higher Contributions Towards Adventure Ideas

Hitchd has a higher average contribution rate from wedding guests than any other honeymoon registry. It’s a massive 65% higher than the industry average. That could be the difference between a life-changing trip away to a far-afield land you never thought you would have the opportunity to visit and a honeymoon that isn’t as special as you would like.

Hitchd operates in many countries too. US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Denmark, Switzerland, and a number of other European and Asian countries. That means wherever you are in the world, you can use our platform.

Provide the Best Mobile User Experience

Hitchd has been voted the best mobile user experience in the industry. Our mobile-friendly layout makes browsing and contributing to your honeymoon fund a breeze. With most people using their phones to spend these days, we have really focused on making the site easy to use on your non-desktop devices. Guests can open up your honeymoon fund on their phones, select the gift they want to contribute, and then pay directly there and then.

Added Functions

When you choose to register with a wedding website like Hitchd, you can enjoy all of these must-have features as well as some added functionality.

Video Templates

Go beyond the standard formatting found in a honeymoon fund today by added videos. Record a video of your own or choose from Hitchd’s extensive video template library.

Our content library is constantly growing; you can choose from various videos for each wedding gift. For example, if one of your gifts is a night at the cinema, you could add a video that depicts the experience of putting wedding guests in your shoes before they donate. Videos are visually engaging and really elevate the personal feel of your honeymoon fund.

Group Gifts

The group gift feature allows groups of people to contribute together towards a single gift. So, if your friends and family wanted something special but couldn’t afford it alone, they could come together and get it for you.

Send Gift Cards

You can also send gift cards from Hitchd, so you don’t have to spend hours writing out thank you cards for all of the guests at your wedding. Simply fill out the gift card templates online, and we will do the rest.


The Bottom Line

Hitchd is the perfect platform for couples who want to create a wedding registry that has a honeymoon fund. With our easy-to-use interface, you can add videos, images, and other media to make your honeymoon fund stand out.
