The New Way to Honeymoon

A New Way to Honeymoon for Less Money
by Jessica Howell

Oftentimes the biggest travel expense of one's life is spent on the traditional, romantic honeymoon. Slightly less than eight days on average, it accounts for the final phase of marriage celebration for 99 percent of us… and breaks the bank at around $4,000. Ouch.

Lessen the sting of hefty post-wedding expenses with help from, a website devoted to making travel plans easier for bride and groom with online travel gift registration. Instead of spending weeks hashing out details and scrutinizing over a dwindling budget, simply book your arrangements (a small deposit is due at time of booking) and let your guests do the work!

Registration on the site is comparable to that at any other outlet - you choose what you'd like (click, in this case) and then sit back and relax while your friends and family pick up the tab. Easy for them, even easier for you - and not a gravy boat in sight.

You'll love the perks of a customized honeymoon and your guests will get a warm, fuzzy feeling when you show off photos of the sunset cruise that they sent you on.

Last years most popular destinations included Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji and Mexico. One couple's registry for a Hawaiian excursion included gifts like countryside horseback riding for two, a couple's waterfront massage, one day rental car and five days worth of breakfast in bed. Airfare is purchasable too… just break the total ticket cost into 10 separate gifts and you'll have realistically priced options for every guest.

Don't want to plan every minor detail? You can put a digital camera on your list to capture every lasting memory, cash needed for taxi fares, or even travel insurance (just in case.)

While TheBigDay doesn't charge a signup fee like some of its competitors, service fees range from 9 percent to 3.5% for travel under $3,500, but are non-existent on anything over. You'll deal with one travel consultant specifically for your trip, who's guaranteed to have current, first-hand knowledge of your destination.

The current record amount for what one couple received is $28,730. Now that's one serious honeymoon.
