Why should we use the Couples Resorts Romantic Honeymoon Registry?
Using the Couples Resorts Romantic Honeymoon Registry allows you to pre-plan what you want to do on your honeymoon or at your destination wedding. Using a honeymoon registry is so much more personal than asking your guests outright for cash! Guests will choose something special that they would like to give you as a wedding gift. Unlike getting envelopes with checks in them at the wedding and leaving the next day for your honeymoon trip, a honeymoon gift registry allows you to know ahead of time what you will have available for extras and upgrades on your honeymoon or destination wedding at Couples Resorts. You can register to get the word out early.Back To Top
When will I receive my gifts from my honeymoon registry?
Your gift monies from your honeymoon registry will be transferred to your room account on property for use with any items that may be billed to your room. Your booking confirmation number is required before any transfers are made. All resort credits must be used on property during your stay, are non-refundable and non-transferable. All resort credits must be purchased up to 5 days prior to your honeymoon date. Within 5 days of your honeymoon date, all gift monies from your honeymoon registry will be transferred to you by check, PayPal or ACH transfer according to your payment preference.

How much does it cost to use the wedding registry and wedding website?

Our team is here to answer calls toll free, process checks and credit cardtransactions of your guests.You may choose
to have the service & handling fee added or deducted from each gift amount. Adding it to the transaction means that the purchaser will be charged a 9.65% service & handling fee at check-out. Deducting the service & handling fee will have the gift amount transfer at 7% less than the listed amount to you, with the gift purchaser paying a reduced service fee of 2.65%. If the fee is added to the gift, purchasers can receive a 2.65% discount if they choose to mail a check directly bringing the total service fee to 7%.
Guests from around the world can make a contribution towards your honeymoon with ease which means no shipping or carrying gifts with them to your wedding destination. Please feel free to call us with any questions.Back To Top
What does the service & handling fee cover?
The service charge covers your account management, unlimited fund transfers, coordination with partner resorts, cruise lines, and tour providers; your wedding web site, order processing, gift announcements, email wizard, merchant account fees (that we are charged) and toll free live customer service to assist your guests. We ensure that your guest's transactions are processed at the highest rate of secure SSL encryption, and protected by a $3,000,000.00 insurance policy against identity theft and fraud.
This is not simply a fee for processing monies; it's a fee so that we can continue to provide outstanding services for you. To run this registry company, we have a dedicated team, providing a high quality and professional service.
Store registries carry costs such as shipping, taxes and gift-wrap charges to cover the services. The service fee this registry charges is often less than these charges imposed on your guests. The honeymoon registry saves your guests time and gas with the comfort and convenience of purchasing their gift from their home or office. And, there is no hassle or embarrassment of returning or exchanging unwanted gifts for you!Back To Top

Do you book the activities on my honeymoon registry for me?
You have the freedom to choose whatever supplier for any gift you receive as we are not booking the item for you just because it is listed on your gift registry. We always suggest asking your travel professional to help you with reservations for your honeymoon vacation or destination wedding. If your supplier requires you to book in a certain manner, you will find those terms under "Notes to Couple" or "Important Details on Your Registry Account" as you build your registry as well as receiving an email notification once the item is purchased for you with booking instructions.Back To Top
How will I know how much to ask for?
When you set up your honeymoon registry, we give you a suggested gift amount for each tour or activity per person in that area or per couple (see notes to couple if applicable). However, you are free to ask for whatever you would like. We recommend using varied denominations to accommodate all guests and checking with your travel professional or supplier for exact pricing. All prices vary by location, availability, and are subject to change without notice.
You can break down the amounts any way you choose. For example, if an item is going to cost you $200.00, you may ask for "2 gifts of $100.00" or "4 gifts of $50.00," etc.
For registries with items that are being booked for you or sent directly to you or your resort, you will find the amount will be preset for you in differing increments.Back To Top
How am I notified of a purchase from my honeymoon gift registry?
You receive an email notice to view your "Gift Announcement" that is filled out by the gift giver. Your guests can also choose to print out this customized gift announcement with a personal message and a photo of what they selected on your honeymoon registry to hand to you. You can log on to your account at any time and go to "Your Registry" and select "Gifts Received/Read Guest Cards" to view your gift details, givers and the gift announcements.
