While asking for cash is primarily still seen as a faux pas, a real honeymoon registry takes all the possible etiquette blunders out of the equation. The main difference between a honeymoon registry and a store registry is that the honeymoon registry generally has experiential rather than household presents on the list. But the lists look very much the same. Watch the video below to get a tour on getting started with Honeymoon Wishes and what…
