Take the Trip of a Lifetime with Buy Our Honeymoon!
If you are a regular reader of Bespoke Bride you will know that we have a new sponsor in our midst. As many of you will know me and Jess love to travel! In fact we are both hoping to be hopping on a plane together again this year for second girly trip away after as our first to California was such a success! It is because of our love of all things exotic that we were so excited to welcome Buy Our Honeymoon to our Bespoke Bride boat.
Buy Our Honeymoon is the perfect choice of gift lift list for those couples who already have everything they need for their home and instead dream of travelling to a far flung destination. Whether it be relaxing on a beach with a cocktail or exploring Argentina, whatever your dream honeymoon might be, the team at Buy Our Honeymoon can help you achieve it. Here to tell you more is Shelley & Andrew…
Tell us about Buy Our Honeymoon….
We are the wedding gift list to help you fund the honeymoon of your dreams. We have helped thousands of couples from all over the world create unique, personal and meaningful wedding registries of honeymoon experiences, activities and contributions towards travel and accommodation.
Instead of bed sheets, have the first night of your hotel stay; instead of a toaster, have a romantic breakfast watching the sun rise over the ocean. If you don’t need the traditional gifts for starting a new home, but feel that simply asking for cold, hard cash takes all the fun and romance away, we might just be your perfect gift list.
Why Did You Create Buy Our Honeymoon?
We’re a husband-and-wife team, and we launched Buy Our Honeymoon in 2007. The idea, however, first began life back when we were planning our own wedding. We didn’t like the idea of re-stocking a flat already bursting at the seams, so we instead compiled a list of adventures for our epic 3000-mile road trip of Florida and the Deep South.
Our bridesmaids helped us stay in a log cabin, up in the smoky mountains of Tennessee; work colleagues upgraded our rental car to a convertible; aunts and uncles bought us tickets to all the theme parks.
Our friends and family embraced the idea with great love and enthusiasm — and thanks to them, our honeymoon was the most amazing trip of a lifetime. From this, we knew that other couples might be looking for the same thing.
What Makes You Different?
Our service is for couples who are actively seeking an alternative to a department store registry. Couples whose biggest wish is instead to achieve the honeymoon of their dreams — whatever that may be — with the love and support of their friends and family.
We’re dedicated to providing an easy-to-use system for you to craft your perfect honeymoon gift list. Choose from any of our beautiful, customisable page designs, upload your own photos, and organise your gift list items however you wish. You can choose from a selection of discreet web addresses for your list, there are no ads, and our own branding stays subtle so the focus is all on you.
Your guests choose any of the ideas you’ve listed, and leave you a personal message. They then pay the value of their gift directly to you, using whatever payment methods you have chosen. Our site can facilitate and track your gift payments, but we don’t hold any funds on your behalf and we don’t take our fee out of the gifts you’re given.
Why will Bespoke Bride Readers Love you?
You will love us if you are looking for a flexible, independent wedding gift list that you can shape to meet your exact needs.
With our service, there’s no limits to what you can include — from a few miles of your flight over the Atlantic to a balloon flight over the Serengeti; the first night of your luxury hotel in the Maldives to a farewell drink at the airport on your return. Couples have listed his-n-hers tattoos in New Orleans and a dog-sitter for their pets back home. Gifts that are as personal and engaging for your guests to give as they are for you to receive.
You don’t have to make your registry as full and detailed as the sample wedding lists we have on our site — you can keep things simple and still offer your guests the opportunity to feel that their gift is meaningful and special, rather than just a contribution of money into a big, anonymous pot.
But many of our couples really get creative with their list — to tell the story of their honeymoon: where they are headed, why it’s important to them, what they most hope to remember from the experience.
However you choose to organise your honeymoon gift list, you’re inviting your guests to engage with the romance and personal value of their gifts to you. Our service is all about making that happen.
Last of all, what’s new for the future, any more exciting plans?
We are always refining and adapting our service in response to customer requests — we have added dozens of features that way! But here’s a couple of things we are working on right now…
Our wedding gift list designs all adapt perfectly to mobile devices like the iPhone or iPad, so your guests can use your list easily and conveniently wherever they are — and they will get the full experience, not just a watered-down mobile version of the site. Very soon, we will be doing the same to our own site, so that it’s just as easy to create and manage your list on your phone as it is on your laptop.
With Buy Our Honeymoon, guests can pay for gift online into your PayPal account using a credit or debit card, or if you are in the UK, as a one-off Direct Debit. With this, instead of using a card, guests can simply and securely set up a one-off payment from their bank account directly into yours. We will soon be able to facilitate gift payments by Direct Debit to couples and their guests in the EU too.
