from Ask Amy - A GREAT response about Honeymoon Registries and Etiquette!

Smart Answer for Smart Brides about Honeymoon Registry --

Honyemoon registries through companies like HoneyLuna become more popular every day.  There is still some confusion though about the etiquette for honeymoon registries -- some think it's still not "acceptable".  

Well honeymoon registries are acceptable, and in fact are NO DIFFERENT than asking friends to buy you BBQs, expensive china or an espresso maker.  The fact is, most couples today do not need another towel, toaster or everday china.  Honeymoon registries are not about entitlement (as the questionner below says)  they're about requesting a lovely, experiential gift that provides memories that will last a lifetime.

If it were me, I'd rather buy my friends a romantic experience or honeymoon adventure that they will never forget, appreciate forever, and it won't end up in a garage sale in 5 years!

In any case, that's just me.... BUT....

Here is a response from Etiquette Expert Amy Dickinson responding to one of those confused souls....

From Ask Amy

By Amy Dickinson

Dear Amy: Regarding registering for honeymoon contributions, what gives? Where do people get off thinking they’re entitled to something, even though they can’t afford it

I can understand a bridal registry — it’s the modern dowry for today’s couples. But come on, where does this entitlement complex come from?

If you want to take a trip when you get married, save for it and put your hand back in your pocket, not mine. — Suzanne

Dear Suzanne: A gift registry is meant to provide the couple with things they can’t buy. I don’t see the difference between registering for a china pattern or a trip to Colorado. Wedding guests don’t have to adhere to registries; they’re meant as gift guidelines.

Don't walk, RUN (or click really fast!) to register at for your HoneyLuna honeymoon registry.
