I was having a discussion with a couple of ladies about bridal registries the other day, and it dawned on me that there are so many new options these days for wedding registries that defy “tradition”. As couples are waiting longer to get married and testing the waters by living together first, in most cases their houses are practically set up so there’s no need for additional plates, cups etc. Rather, being able to register for experiences or your honeymoon is becoming increasingly popular, and thats where Traveler’s Joy can come in. They’ve made it super easy to register for fun things like breakfast in bed, bungee jumping, island excursions, pretty much anything you can do on your honeymoon, you can register for! How nice to not have to worry about expenses while you’re enjoying some alone time with your sweetie! You can also add on items like maps, cameras, and luggage, and for higher priced items, the cost can be split up amongst guests so no one’s on the hook for the $1000 Louis Vuitton makeup case you’ve been eyeing. If you’re stumped for ideas of what to register for, you can use their Instant Registry feature, or check out other Traveler’s Joy user registries to see what they’re getting.
Now you’ve got no excuse to not sign up!

Its become pretty common that couples generally live together before getting married, which means they’ve already stocked their cupboards with all the plates, glassware, and appliances they could ever need, so dont really need to register for any more (ok, you can still get that Kitchenaid Mixer if you REALLY need it!). Some couples would rather register for experiences instead of more of the same, and thats where Traveler’s Joy comes in!
Your registery takes minutes to set up, and not only can you register for things like dinners or spa treatments, but you can also add in guide books and cameras to keep you on the right track and capture all your memories. More expensive items can be divided up into manageable dollar amounts, so multiple people can contribute to a gift. A friend of mine recently registered for honeymoon experiences, and I can honestly say its really gratifying knowing that my contribution was to something they really wanted to do, and that I knew they’d always remember…
