San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 20, 2011
HoneymoonWishes.com, (http://www.honeymoonwishes.com) the nation’s leading online bridal registry focusing on honeymoons, has launched a new feature which allows a honeymoon couple to select that their honeymoon gift registry funds be transferred to their honeymoon resort for use at their honeymoon property.
What makes HoneymoonWishes.com stand apart from other honeymoon registry companies where the gift monies are sent to couple as cash, is that these gift monies are sent directly to the couple’s honeymoon property and placed in the couple’s hotel room folio. This unique feature assures gift givers that their gift to the bride and groom will in fact be enjoyed as it was intended – a honeymoon experience - and makes it easy for the honeymoon couple to enjoy their honeymoon gifts at their honeymoon resort.
Honeymoon registries allow a bridal couple to create gift registry a wish list of the items and activities of their honeymoon as wedding gifts. Their friends and family can then purchase a wedding gift that gives them the opportunity to participate in creating memories that couples will cherish for a lifetime. “Until now, however”, says Kristin Stark, Founder and President of HoneymoonWishes.com, “there was a bit of the honor system with the honeymoon registry process. Couples received the cash from the honeymoon items and activities their friends purchased for them. It was up to the couple to use their gift monies on items guests selected for them.” Adds Stark, “By choosing to have the gift monies sent to our partner resorts, the honeymoon registry becomes as legitimate as a traditional bridal registry. Gift givers know that the couple really will enjoy their experiential gift at their honeymoon destination.”
Honeymoon registries are a fast growing segment of the bridal registry industry but many companies coming online are really only an online vehicle for couples to ask for cash. With one company, guests are only “making a pledge” to pay for a gift and the give the couple a check at the wedding. Says Stark, “We felt it was so important to provide a registry option which underscores a genuine bridal registry experience for both the gift givers and the honeymoon couple as well. Similar to the fun of opening wedding gifts after the wedding, couples using our honeymoon registry can truly enjoy the fantastic honeymoon gifts awaiting for them at their resort – and extend the fun and romantic experiences throughout their whole honeymoon.”
Companies that partner with Honeymoon Wishes, such as Starwood Hawaii Resorts, Starwood Caribbean Resorts, Sandals, Dreams, Secrets, Carnival Cruises, Royal Caribbean cruises and many others are thrilled with the new process. “Honeymoon Registries have long been a popular trend with bridal couples.” says Michael Troy, Director of Field Marketing for Starwood Hawaii, “We are excited to be able to help the honeymoon couple have their dream honeymoon at one of our resorts because friends and family are purchasing wonderful and romantic experiences as their wedding gifts.” Adds Troy, “Gift givers love that they can purchase something as special as our private “Cabana Dinner at Azure” at the Royal Hawaiian on Oahu or maybe a helicopter tour of the Napali Coast on Kauai for couples staying at the St. Regis Princeville. With the gift funds now in a couple’s resort folio, gift givers can be assured the couple will enjoy their unique and memorable. It sure beats a set of dish towels!”
