Found this great post from a bride about HoneyLuna on a TheKnot.Com

We used   and were thrilled with the site.  It's beautiful, easy for our friends to use and our friends and family LOVED IT!  

They all agreed that it was better giving us a fun, romantic or experiential gift on our honeymoon than something we didn’t need that would just end up in a closet or being returned.  We too lived together and had everything for our house -- we just did not want or need more STUFF.  In no way were we being "grabby".  In fact, when we initially did not register anywhere our friends were outraged - they all said "but we have to get you something."  We took pictures of all the activities our friends bought for us and sent them in our thank you notes.  That way that saw that we enjoyed our gifts and now have a memento of us enjoying their wedding gift.  

As for the service fee - I don't get why people are so hung up on that.  We paid everyone else involved in our wedding for their service - the photographer, the minister, the reception venue, the caterer... This was another great service that made our lives easier, got us wonderful wedding gifts and our friends were happy.  Totally worth it.  

And btw, do you not think there is a fee at a department store?  The registry may be free but the gifts are marked up 40-50% -- so the 7% we paid with HoneyLuna was a real bargain.  

(Actually, we chose the option where our friends covered that fee - and they didn't mind as they didn't even have to leave their house to buy the gifts and knew we wouldn't be returning it!)  So use and go have the honeymoon of your dreams!  Enjoy!!

 Thank you from HoneyLuna!
