I am so excited to introduce you to Honeypot gift registry. It is based in New Zealand and is the first of its kind offering a fab solution to both to you, the soon to be hitched couple, and to your guests. We are also thrilled to offer a special off code on our site to give you money off their site. I know, how awesome is that!! More details at the end of the post. So over to Verity who is one third of this Kiwi team to tell us more about Honeypot.
So Verity take us away, what is Honeypot?
Honeypot is the honeymoon registry for couples who already have a houseful of things, and guests who still want to give them the perfect gift. The online platform allows people to ask for contributions, either to parts of their honeymoon or big purchases, as a gift for their wedding and have those contributions made easily online. It’s created for couples who may already live together and don’t want to be given products as wedding gifts, but who feel uncomfortable simply asking for money.
The website caters to the 20,000 couples getting married each year in New Zealand, offering them a registry option that doesn’t have to include products, isn’t tied to one specific travel agent, and allows them complete freedom in choosing what gifts they would like to ask for. By then receiving monetary contributions for those gifts, they can pick the best provider or product for them, allowing them to take advantage of sales and other opportunities.
How does it work?
Couples can sign up to the website and create a registry for a one-off fee of $130, with the ability to ask for everything from contributions to flights, to cocktails by the beach, to tours of Paris – with no pre-determined items or restrictions on items. Their personalised URL can then be added to paperless wedding invitations or shared via a wedding website or social media. Couples get the cash – and guests get the satisfaction of still giving them a real present.
How can this help Eco Weddings?
Keeping to the paperless theme, giving a gift and leaving a message via Honeypot is all done online – which means no need for wrapping paper or physical cards! Being able to link to your registry from your Paperless Wedding website and invites means it’s easy for guests to head straight to your honeymoon registry and give you a gift from the comfort of their own home. No need to drive around to several stores using up petrol, and no need for you to send out a separate registry card!
