Unlike a traditional wedding registry comprised of household items, The Honeymoon registry is developed around a honeymoon travel package.
With a click and a credit card, wedding guests can visit a couple`s customized honeymoon registry and select from a variety of gifts, all of which are a part of the couple`s honeymoon plans.
Parasailing, scuba diving, plane fares, spa visits and offshore excursions are just some examples of the items that may be purchased.
The interest in the honeymoon registry concept has really caught on. In the month of January alone, the traffic to the company`s web site more than doubled to over 800,000 hits. According to The Honeymoon`s CEO Scott Ellingboe, ?ggoing into February 2002, we have already seen over 50% of the business we had in all of 2001. Couples love the concept because The Honeymoon is allowing them to create a honeymoon experience that may not have been financially possible; wedding guests have accepted the honeymoon registry because it`s a fun, creative gift option that the wedding couple is sure to use.?h
Couples can also use the Company`s site to research honeymoon destinations and book their travel. The newly updated Honeymoon Package section of the Company`s website is launching this week, and includes many U.S., Caribbean, and international destinations/properties. Using a variety of search options, couples can find a honeymoon package, then link directly to a travel specialist who can assist with the booking or back to their own travel agent. Destination wedding information is also available for those couples that wish to hold their wedding ceremony in an exotic locale.
The Honeymoon, headquartered in Minneapolis, Minn. provides travel packages with an on-line honeymoon registry exclusively for the honeymoon market.
