Last Updated on

Whether you are trying to find the perfect wedding gift for a friend or relative, or you are newlyweds with hopes of having a great Honeymoon, you need to know about Honeyfund!

Honeyfund is a wedding registry, specifically for honeymoons! Like the name suggests, it’s a great way to save for your honeymoon fund. And it just so happens to be the number one of its kind.

While Honeyfund is primarily known for funding honeymoons, it is also used as a crowdfunding site for weddings, charities and even down payments on homes!

Honeyfund has been featured on the television show Shark Tank as well as numerous publications like The New York Times and Vogue, and even has a partnership with Target!

How Honeyfund works

You create your page and registry which come with the following:

  • Customizable wishlist
  • Gift card registry
  • Universal registry capability
  • Store registry syncing
  • Exclusive discounts and offers
  • A webpage to share and post on social media

If you are unsure of how to create your own registry or don’t want to spend the time and effort, choose from Honeyfund’s own popular, pre-selected ones including:

  • Italy
  • The Hawaiian Islands
  • The Caribbean

You choose your payment options, one of which is the Honeyfund Balance. It is the essential feature of Honeyfund and the most flexible way to receive your gifts. There are no transaction fees.

How to Get Around

Your guests visit your page and registry and follow these quick, easy steps:

  • Select a gift or amount they want to give
  • Enter their name and email address
  • Enter their payment information (all major debit and credit card providers are accepted)
  • Receive confirmation and receipt
  • Your gifts/funds become available immediately as a cash registry (like a bank account balance)
  • You view each gift, and its payment method on the “gifts received page.”
  • Click on the “gift” section, then the “redemption history tab.”
  • Follow the redemption steps
  • Withdraw the funds via digital gift cards

If some of your guests aren’t sure of how to use Honeyfund, there is an option to designate someone as a contact person to answer questions and offer help.

The Honeyfund balance does not expire and can be disabled in your payment settings if you so desire.

While the Honeyfund balance cannot be redeemed for cash, it can be used with any of Honeyfund’s partners who offer such services as:

  • Airfare
  • Cruises
  • Shopping

The Honeyfund balance isn’t the only way to redeem what you receive from your guests. You can choose to withdraw money your guests give you via WePay or PayPal.

How to do this

  • Create a PayPal or WePay account
  • Choose this as your payment method when you set up your registry
  • Click on the “withdraw” button to log-in to your PayPal or WePay account
  • Click the “withdraw” tab to get your money.
    Note: There are some small fees associated with this method.

The only other fee associated with Honeyfund is for the low-cost upgrade for your registry if you so choose, which allows for:

  • Numerous textures, fonts, and colors
  • Custom Backgrounds
  • No Ads
  • Protection for your password

Also, Honeyfund offers access to several honeymoon package deals and discounts. You can also book your travel and pay for it through one of Honeyfund’s many travel partners or your own.

Before using Honeyfund and receiving your gifts, it is recommended that you:

  • Estimate how many of your wedding guests are likely to contribute and how much
  • Share your registry as much as you can. This allows you to:
  • Have an idea of where you can go and what you can do
  • A budget for your travel costs
  • Estimate how much you may have to pay before your Honeymoon in case you don’t receive your gifts on time

One bonus of choosing the cash payment option is the ability to reimburse yourself if you pay for some of your honeymoon expenses upfront (like credit card payments for deposits, etc…)

We hope this guide has been helpful, and happy honeymooning!

Sue Fox

Love You Tomorrow was founded by Sue Fox, a jewelry and wedding enthusiast from New York. Her father, Simon, was a jewelry appraiser, whose family had deep roots in the mining industry. Sue grew up schooled in the different properties of gems and metals, as well as in the care and appraisal of jewelry. She was most fascinated by how different gems, materials, cuts, and settings could be put together in endless combinations to make thousands of unique pieces of jewelry. Best of all, each piece was distinct in its purpose and design to match the personality of the wearer. Love You Tomorrow began as a passion project in 2016. This was around the time when many of Sue’s friends and family members were getting married. Knowing her expertise, they often sought out her advice on wedding and engagement rings. The blog started out as a place to house Sue’s now in-demand knowledge. Her first posts were buying guides for diamonds, roundups of her favorite ring recommendations around the web, and practical tips about choosing the right gemstone for you. It became apparent pretty quickly that the most common visitors to her blog were couples in the market for wedding and engagement rings. Since rings were only one item on an engaged couple’s to-do list, Sue also began to receive inquiries about how the perfect rings would fit into the rest of the whole wedding picture. Since then, Sue’s vision for the blog expanded to become a one-stop shop for other resources on weddings in general. Today, Love You Tomorrow is a wedding blog that features not just Sue’s expertise on wedding and engagement rings, but also insights from her “Wedding Party”, a team of wedding experts and enthusiasts who write guides, recommendations, and tips for happy couples looking to tie the knot. Sue is now currently based in Carmel-by-the-Sea on the Monterey Peninsula in California. She lives with her husband Jess, and their three dogs, Sleepy, Dopey, and Doc.
