We loved that flexibility that honeyfund gave us to create a honeymoon fund. They website is clear and straightforward. It gave a fun selection of backgrounds to match our theme and clear explanations of how our guests can gift if they wish! It is also nice that you can update guests with information! Great website and way to create a honeymoon fund!

We loved the idea of using Honeyfund to help pay for our honeymoon. My husband and I dated for 7.5 years and lived together for 5 before we got married so we didn't need a lot of the "traditional" wedding registry items. We got some push back from family members that it was tacky, etc, but we went ahed anyway. Our guests that used it liked the idea of giving us "something" (dinner, drinks, etc) rather than just money. We also gave people the option to use credit card through honeyfund, which we think helped encourage people to use it. As we write thank you notes for the wedding gifts, we are planning on including pictures from the outings, dinners, etc that people gave us through honeyfund, so if you gave us ziplining, they will get a few pictures of our ziplining excursion. The website is easy to use, and guests were able to give gifts easily.

We loved Honeyfund.com! It was awesome have the option to explain to our guests that we didn't need any other gifts than funding for our honeymoon. Honeyfund.com was quick, easy to use and sooooo affordable. We used the paypal and the cash option and after all was said an done - we received about $5000, which gave us a great honeymoon. Thank you honeyfund!

Honeyfund was simple, convenient and streamlined gift giving. They have the lowest fees that I could find in searching for a cash registry. If you want a cash registry, this is the best place!

We loved having the Honeyfund. My (now) husband and I have been together for almost 11 years. We really didn't need to do a registry at a store. We felt like honey fund it was perfect for us. It did help out a lot with honeymoon expenses even though we still planned on paying for everything ourselves. We did do a 2nd registry at BBB incase people felt like they would rather give us a gift vs. money. This way they have an option.

The ONLY downside to honey fund was that there is a fee you have to pay if you choose to let your guests give you money by credit card payment. Easy enough though, we just opted out of CC payment and had it set up for cash or check only!

Honeyfund was amazing! We are two adults in our 30's. When we moved in together we had 2 (or more) of everything. We didn't need more things for the house. Honeyfund was the perfect alternative. It was user friendly and helped us fund our perfect honeymoon!

We really enjoyed creating a cash registry through Honeyfund! It was a great addition to our traditional registry and many of our guests used it! It is extremely easy to use and completely free to the creator and your guests. I highly recommend.

Great way to help us afford our romantic honeymoon to Italy! Nice alternative to a regular registry for people who did not need a lot of things for their home (we have lived on our own for several years already and have a lot of things plus we are still only in an apartment with limited space). No need to pay for the special features- just use the free version! The fees we paid to paypal to have things direct deposit were minor in the grand scheme of things.

We saw honeyfund on Shark Tank. When we decided to go to Italy for our honeymoon we figured a honeymoon registry would be a good idea. We read reviews for a few similar sites. And decided to go with honeyfund.com (being Shark Tank fans helped). The site was awesome. We didn't have a single problem. We paid for the upgrade. Our guests loved looking through our registry.

Some of the setup can be tricky to maneuver through, mainly trying to attach my own PayPal account. I would have just left the credit card as the only payment option is I had realized the % fee is taken off of the gift amount ie $100 becomes a $97 gift, I was worried guests would feel they were paying a fee on top of the gift amount. I was so thankful we had a way a completely FREE way to receive gifts towards our honeymoon. I loved setting up my own categories of what the money would go towards for our honeymoon, and being able to select little pictures to tie into the gift category. I had a lot of fun setting my website up, so much more fun receiving gifts and comments for my husband and I from our guests, and the helpful emails I received along the way from honey fund!! It makes me want to set up a new one just remembering how enjoyable and trustworthy this experience was for is! Thank you Honeyfund.com!

My wedding planner suggested this site to me to start a home fund and since other funding websites charge the user or the givers, it really appealed to me. I couldn't see charging my guests more than what they were donating so this site is perfect since it is mostly guiding your guests that you would like a monetary donation for a home or honeymoon rather than specific items and they don't have to pay online. Your guests can pay in person at the wedding or send it to your address. I just set my account up and am having my wedding planner add it to my site on here! Hoping it is as user friendly and fool-proof as it seems.

The set up and interface were very easy to use. I liked that the very basic one was free, and we upgraded to the ad-free one, that I thought was great for just $20. Having the option to receive monetary gifts at the wedding was nice, since there were no fees for that, but people were still "purchasing" something specific for us, and still having the option for people to use credit cards was great. The fee wasn't bad at all, compared to some of the other online registry sites. I liked that it went directly to the PayPal account that we set up so that we wouldn't have to worry about getting the money from the website company or anything like that.

Having a honeymoon registry was a nice alternative since we didn't have a lot of physical items on our registry, but people were still giving us something that we wanted and they knew what their money would be going towards!

A good alternative way of having our wedding registry for cash without coming across being tacky
