Honeymoon Gift Websites?

we are thinking about asking guests to put to our honeymoon for our gift - and wondered if anyone had done this, and if they had used one of those websites to do so - any advice on which ones to use, and how do you word this on your invite without sounding too cheeky?

    first choice, thomas cook and all the other high street travel agents do this. we are thinking of doing this but do you have to pay all by 12 weeks before if so this is no good as most people only buy wedding gifts a couple of weeks before and also the suggest sending invites 6 weeks before wedding again too late

    hi

    we were looking at things like this but we have elderly people coming who have never used a computer and in my grandads words never will this counts them out as many wont let you do it over the phone. so that counts it out for us

    i think what we could do - would be to give people the option, because many people would find this easier than having to think about a gift.....I know I would like to do this, than buy the usual gifts for people....its the easy option!!!

    Hi! We were thinking along similar lines. Haven't done anything about it yet so can't give any advice, but here are some websites I've come across.



    http://www.honeymoney.co.uk/sample_list_details.asp?ID=2

    http://www.whattogive.com Which was recommended by someone on the forums who had it for their honeymoon.

    http://www.thebigday.com/ Which is American but know of people who have used it in the UK.



    There have been a couple of threads about this before which I found useful. Scroll down to the bottom for the forum results.

    Do some research into the honeymoon gift companies, some of them charge a fairly whopping percentage as their commission.

    We are asking for Thomas cook vouchers but not going to use them until jan/feb 08. As my son starts big school just after the wedding, so not going anywhere.

  • I looked at the honeymoney website. They charge 7.5%.

    I can't help thinking it's be better to put my own website together with pictures of the activities we'd like to do on honeymoon etc, and have people send a cheque to my mum or something. Dealing with credit card stuff incures charges if you redirect to a secure site capable of taking the details.



    If people can't use it, I don't want them to buy me anything. We're up and travelling in a year, though I hate the way people think now we are getting married it's 'the end', and we have to get a mortgage and have kids....all in good time people! (sorry for rant imageopsimage



    Thanks for link to other thread :\)

    We used blisslist.co.uk and were really pleased.



    Just like honeymoney but they only charge 1.5%.
