Have you created a honeymoon registry and need a way to make it look and feel more like you? We’ve got some incredible tips if you’re looking for ways to make your wedding registry feel personal. Here are some pro tips to maximizing contributions to your honeymoon fund.

All wedding registries are not created equal, so it’s always important to look at the features and benefits of each before deciding which one to use. At Hitchd, we have included some pretty cool features that allow you to snazz up your wedding registry so that guests can feel your personalities radiate off the screen when they visit it.

Add A Cover Image That Matches Your Holiday

The first thing your guests will see is your cover image, so you want to upload an image that matches your wedding theme. For example, you could use a photo of the venue, of the season, or maybe even the holiday if your wedding falls on Christmas or Valentine’s Day.

Using wedding registries to set the tone for the event to get your wedding guests excited and ready to celebrate your big day.

Video Templates

This is a feature that is unique to Hitchd. Adding video templates to your wedding registry gives your guests a good feel for that particular wedding gift. For example, let’s say you use your wedding registry to request adventure wedding gifts. We love the idea because what better way for a newlywed couple to celebrate wedded bliss than going on adventures, right?

A brewery tour might be something you’d enjoy together, so you can add our “Brewery Tour Gift Template” to your registry. It’s a short video that shows someone pouring beer from a tap. Using the video template on your fund wedding registry makes the experience more interactive for your guests.

It’s a pretty cool experience for a wedding guest to be able to contribute online to gifts that create memories for couples. Here are some other examples of video gift templates you can register for and add to your cash registry.

  • Road Trip
  • Hot Air Balloon Rides
  • Tropical Getaways
  • Bicycle Rides
  • Flights
  • Hiking

And there are so many more ideas, but the really cool thing is if you don’t see a video or loop that matches your custom wedding gift idea, you can upload your own video.

Upload A Photo Of Both Of You

Another great way to personalize wedding registries is to upload photos of both of you. A beautiful picture from your engagement photo shoot is an excellent idea. Or add a fun or quirky photo that shows your unique personalities. Your wedding guests will love seeing your wedding registry look and feel like you.

Describe Why You Are Using A Honeymoon Fund

When using Hitchd as your honeymoon fund registry platform, another great tool is the ability to add a description. In addition, we include an area right on your front page where you can personalize your registry with a welcome message.

This is a great area to tell your friends and family “why” you are using a honeymoon fund registry instead of a traditional wedding registry. It’s becoming more popular for many couples because most already live together, so you don’t need the age-old wedding registry gifts like China and linens. But it is still a good idea to share some thoughts on why you decided to do a honeymoon cash fund.

Add A Mixture Of Wedding Gifts For Both Of You

To personalize your wedding registry even more, make sure to add a selection of gifts that speak to both of you. You’ll likely be inviting some guests that are just friends with one of you. They’ll probably want to get a wedding gift that is tailored more toward the one they know.

So, add a mixture of gifts for each of you and presents that work for both of you, and of course, don’t forget to add some adventure gift ideas.

Add Experiences, And Why It’s Something You Want To Do

This is the part of Hitchd that our couples love the most! Having the ability to add “experiences” to your honeymoon wedding registry is the absolute best way to make it more personal. And because our wedding gift templates are fully customizable, your gift experiences can be anything you want.

We have preloaded tons of adventure or experience gift templates, but you can also modify them to be something unique. Switch out the photos, change the name, add your amounts and even add a description.

Each step offers you a way to put your stamp on your honeymoon registry. This is great because when you’re guests are searching for the perfect wedding gift to give you, each item will feel and sound like you. After all, it’s your words describing each item.

The Right Wedding Gift Value For Everyone

To make gifting easier for your guests, we also included an option for you to allow portion gift-giving. What does that mean? It means you can include expensive wedding gifts and let your guests pay a “portion” of the value.

For example, if your dream honeymoon is a trip to Thailand, it’s not very likely that one guest will foot the bill for that trip. Because it will generally have a big ticket budget. But several or all of your guests could chip in a portion (or cash gift) to help pay for the trip.

One guest may spend $100, another a few hundred, and it also allows guests that can’t afford a costly wedding gift to contribute a lesser amount (what they can afford).

Even though they can only afford a small amount, they will still enjoy contributing to your dream honeymoon as a cash gift because they know it will be a trip that creates memories you’ll cherish.

Is It Worth Paying For A Wedding Registry?

That’s a great question! Until a problem escalates, most free wedding registries do not provide live help or the option to speak to a real person. With Hitchd, our staff responds to all inquiries and is available to assist you throughout most of the day. So, yes! Paying for a honeymoon registry at Hitchd is worth it.

The difference will become apparent once you register with Hitchd. We not only have thousands of stunning, high-quality pictures and videos, but we also offer language and suggestions to help you begin sharing your love story. There are also more bells and whistles that allow you to personalize your registry to get your guests excited for your wedding day.

Here are a few things your wedding guests will also appreciate about a less traditional wedding registry.

  • How easily they can gift cash
  • How flexible they can be with the budget they spend
  • The unique gift ideas
  • Pre-made wish lists that you share online

Wedding registries are a great way to request cash gifts without being tacky. But they also allow you to add adventures, experiences, and other gift registry items as well. And you can add as many gifts as you like so your guests have a great selection of
