What is the Elegant Hotels Honeymoon Registry?

The Elegant Hotels Honeymoon Registry is similar to a store gift registries, whereby you register for items you wish to receive as wedding gifts. This registry allows you to register components of your honeymoon or destination wedding online. Your wedding guests will then give you portions of your vacation as a wedding gift! Instead of asking for a crock pot, you could receive an upgrade on your honeymoon suite, a couple's massage or a romantic dinner as wedding gifts.

Do you book the activities on my Honeymoon Wishes registry for me?

You have the freedom to choose the supplier for any gift you receive, as we are NOT booking the item for you just because it is listed on your gift registry. If the supplier requires you to book in a certain manner, you will find those terms under 'Notes to Couple', in each item description and via an email notification, once the item is purchased.

How will we know how much to ask for?

As you select items for your honeymoon registry, in the "Notes to Couple" we give you a suggested gift amount for each tour or activity. These prices vary and can be listed per person, per couple or per item. All prices vary by location, availability and are subject to change without notice. Be sure to make note of these highlighted Notes to Couple as you choose your gifts.

We recommend using varied denominations to accommodate all your guest's budgets. You can break down the amounts into smaller amounts and ask for more of each item. For example, if an item is going to cost you $200.00, you may ask for 2 gifts of $100.00, 4 gifts of $50.00, or 8 gifts of $25.00.
