Reviews and Testimonials
We believe we offer the most flexible and best value honeymoon gift list service on the market. But don’t just take our word for it — here’s what some of our customers have told us...
The site is really, really fantastic and the service you provide is truly outstanding. You have made this such an easy process. … I have to say, we have had such amazing feedback about the site. People really love it! … We really can’t say enough great things about your service. Your attention to detail and your personal responses to all of our inquiries put you on an entirely different level from all of the other honeymoon sites we researched.
— Carolyn and Fernando Bohorquez, New York, USA
Buy Our Honeymoon provided us with a faultless service. A brilliant idea to start off with, the system itself is easy to use, highly flexible, and customisable — our guests thought it was fantastic. All this and superb customer service to boot. We can’t recommend Buy Our Honeymoon highly enough!
— Niki Strange and James Bennett, Brighton
We’ve just got back from our honeymoon and I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Buy Our Honeymoon because we would never, ever have been able to have the honeymoon that we did, without you. The website was easy to set up and our guests loved the idea that they weren’t just giving us cash. Thank you for being so patient with me, so helpful and so friendly. If only all the wedding preparations were as fun or as stress-free!
— Michelle and Mark Young, Worcestershire, on our Facebook wall
Choosing Buy Our Honeymoon as our wedding gift list was a fantastic decision. We enjoyed the fun process of creating our pages and our guests said they really loved the magical and unusual gifts they could choose from. We actually set up a more traditional gift list as well, in case some of our guests were not too happy about contributing to our honeymoon. But as it turns out, only 3 couples (out of at least 100) used this second “traditional” gift list! We would also like to note that the service we received was fast, courteous and efficient. Every change we requested to our web pages was done in the same day. We will definitely be recommending this website to all our engaged friends!
— Natasha Leger and Marcos Theodosiou, France
Not only is this site really intuitive and well constructed but the customer service you have provided to date has been first-class! I can honestly say that I’ve never experienced such quick, polite and personal service when dealing with a website, so thank you again!
— Scott Hart and Rebecca Moss, Surrey
Aloha! Wanted to tell you now that we’re back from our honeymoon that we had the best experiences ever thanks to you! Researching gifts to put on our list made us do things we never would have.
Our guests loved the personal touches we included, like the photos and information about why we wanted the gifts, and the site was so easy for them to use! (for us to set up too for that matter!)
And finally: I’d like to say that I am so grateful that you never delete our pages. My husband and I spent a lot of time setting it up and it means a lot to us that we’ll always be able to revisit it.
— Jamila and Marc Lewis, Cardiff
★★★★★ — Buy Our Honeymoon is FANTASTIC. So easy to use, staff so helpful when we needed to make contact. I can’t rave about it enough to be honest. All our guests commented on what a wonderful site it was. Just use it.
— Review by Emma Logan on reviewcentre.com, July 2010
I have to say, your site is wonderful. I love how much flexibility your registry gives, both in listing items and in customizing it. I had a registry set up on a different honeymoon registry site, and I just went and deleted it (we hadn’t publicized the registry yet), because I like your registry set up so much more!
— Elaine Swick and David Sims, Arizona, USA
Thank you so much for a BRILLIANT service. The website was easy and fun to set up and was just what we were looking for to set up our perfect wedding list. The instructions were easy to follow, designs fantastic, the gift cards very good quality and the help I received when I called the helpline was great. Most of our guests commented on how great our wedding gift website was and a few of them who are getting married soon have decided to use you. We really liked the idea of ‘suggest a gift’ and got some very funny ones!!
— Xavi Xerri and Mark Woods, Bristol
I LOVE this website. It’s so easy to use, looks amazing and the customer service is second to none!
— Kirsty and Peter Gowton, Lincolnshire, on our Facebook wall
Thank you so much for providing such an excellent service! The site was just what we were looking for — flexible, user-friendly, attractive and convenient. Every time I needed to contact you, the response was always rapid, useful and clear. I would (and already have!) recommended you to all my future bride friends!
We’ve now got a wonderful honeymoon to Sardinia to look forward to (instead of a cupboard full of seventeen toasters) thanks to you!
— Jan Beevers and Matt Carter, France
This weekend, we discovered the website Buy Our Honeymoon, where you can set up a registry with photos and descriptions of your honeymoon. Your wedding guests can buy you parts of your honeymoon by sending money directly to you. It’s brilliant. I’m totally sold on the idea...
— Joanna Goddard, Glamour.com blog review, March 2009
The website worked out brilliantly for Claire and I.
We used it for our honeymoon month in Vietnam and it made such a difference to our trip. Rather than struggling on a fairly tight budget, thanks to all our gifts we were able to do loads of tours, stay in nice hotels and have the trip of a lifetime. We did luxury cruises, cooking courses, stayed with local families, surfed, ate amazing seafood — and it was all made so much easier thanks to your easy-to-use and reliable website.
— Ian Winterton and Claire Metherell, Castres, France
I cannot tell you how much we love your site! It’s a genius idea and we found everything about it amazing. Your customer service was so friendly and helpful, setting up the list was so straightforward and simple, the look of the pages was simple and fresh and our friends and family found it so easy to use as well. We got SO MANY compliments as well, people actually ENJOYED looking at our list and it came across as thoughtful and personal rather than some bland gift registry at a department store. We were able to really show our personalities. I hope to not use you again (haha!) but I really can’t commend you enough for your fantastic site.
— Heather Leigh Murray and David Keenan, Texas, USA
This website is awesome. I’ve searched the entire internet looking at every honeymoon registry website and this is by far the best!
— Dan Caryk and Sonja Isobe, Canada
We were so impressed with this site and the service we received. We didn’t want a traditional gift list (we have all the pots, pans and toasters we need!), what we really needed was some help towards our honeymoon but we felt cheeky asking for money. Buy Our Honeymoon was the perfect solution and it went down a storm with our guests. We had such a positive response, people said it was exciting to see what we would be up to on our trip and they really felt involved in our plans. For us, it meant we could really enjoy ourselves while we were away and we had such fun doing all the things people had bought for us. We would defintely recommend the ’helping hand’ — not only did it save us a lot of time but it highlighted events and experiences we hadn’t even heard of or thought of! We found the site easy to use, good value for money with speedy and friendly service. We’ve since raved about it to friends who signed up and are just as delighted as we are with it!
— Eleanor Chapman and Andrew Le Mesurier, Leicestershire
I just want to say thank you for all your help, prompt responses to our queries and great service all around. We are really pleased we have chosen Buy Our Honeymoon for our wedding list and all of our guests thought the idea was genius.
— Anna Shevchuk and Neil Franklin, Surrey
From the Maldives to Malta or New York to Norway — the team have all the experience needed to ensure your honeymoon gift list is perfect … If you’ve got the pots and pans and don’t need another toaster why not consider the honeymoon gift list service from Buy Our Honeymoon. With great customer reviews and testimonials, an accolade of endorsements and awards from industry peers — Buy Our Honeymoon is a leading honeymoon gift list service ideal for brides on a budget.
— Fiona Richardson, Budget Savvy Bride blog review, October 2010
I just wanted to send a massive thank you for your fabulous service and great help today!
I messed up with my PayPal account and you were so so helpful and helped me sort the whole thing out in the best possible way! People keep saying to me that there must be some catch with only the one up front payment to you but today the service you provided me was above and beyond and I really wanted to thank you!
— Anna Cullen and Daryl Guy, Nottingham
Stop looking elsewhere, this site is perfect. It’s easy to use, easy for guests to use, and the customer service from Shelley is out of this world. It’s also got a brilliant tool that will save your gift history as a spreadsheet to make those dreaded thank you cards easier to write! So very pleased we used it!!
— Emma and Richard Dore-Dennis, Hampshire
I have to say the gift list was one of the best, most innovative, easy to use, original ideas of the whole event! Everyone thought it was so personal to us and felt like we had given it so much thought. Not one thing went wrong — unheard of these days! Thank you so much.
— Susan and Stephen Wilcock, London
Thank you — your service is IMPECCABLE! Your responses to both us, and our guests, were speedy, friendly, and nothing was ever too much trouble. The site is easy to set-up, navigate around, and very user-friendly.
— Nicola and Stuart Farquharson-Roberts, London, on our Facebook wall
We were so pleased we decided to go with Buy Our Honeymoon for our wedding list. All of our guests commented that it was such a unique idea, and so personal to us, and your service has been second to none.
— Karen Livingston and Andrew Barnett, Glasgow
A quick note to say thank you very much for our gift list. It was exactly what we needed. You also offer an excellent service — queries answered and solved efficiently on the phone and by email. We especially loved that we could choose an alternative currency and really personalise with text and photos. It’s great that we can still view our list as we have not yet got round to the thank you cards.
— Ekta Parmar and Peter Fors, Essex
★★★★★ — We selected this online site for our honeymoon registry because it was one flat fee to set up and maintain the website versus other sites that take a percentage of the gifts or charged processing fees to the guests who chose to buy from the registry. The site was easy to create with many samples available online to choose from. They also offer to put together the site for you for an additional cost. They also have a few different web addresses they can be given to guests if "buy our honeymoon" does not set the tone you want. We added our own photos, prices, and commentary for each item. The layout of the page was very appealing and took no web building skills to put together all the information. This site relies on gift givers going through PayPal or the US mail with their payments so they never directly handle the money. The automated notifications (which can be turned off) were fun to receive each time a gift was purchased for us. Overall the registry was a big hit.
— Review by southerngirl and jedimike70 on weddingwire.com, December 2009
We’ve been delighted with the site and your support and would definitely recommend it to other couples. It’s definitely the best gift list around.
There’s nothing I would change, it’s easy to use, simple to navigate and organise. Great job!
Unfortunately I doubt you get much repeat business!
— Paul and Stephanie Walker, Surrey
Thank you guys for your fantastic service. It was one of the things that made wedding planning both incredibly easy and also fun. We have received so many compliments from our guests about the list and we had a great time thinking of places and activities that our friends can relate to and enjoy giving us. Your templates were easy and pretty and when there was some confusion about our login you were friendly, helpful and efficient on the phone.
— Christina Reif and Vish Vishvanath, London, on our Facebook wall
We were very happy with the gift registry, and so were our friends. It was a great way of getting the gift that we wanted the most — quality time and romantic moments in exotic surroundings. We had a wonderful time in Tanzania and Zanzibar, and now we have lots of great memories to keep our hearts and marriage warm when everyday life kicks in.
— Hilde Rusten and Bjorn Gunnar Pollen, Oslo, Norway
We’ve had so many compliments on our gift list, people are getting really excited about what they are giving us and are loving being involved. We had added a few For our home gifts to it in case some guests would prefer to buy us a more traditional gift, but actually they seem to think that those gifts are a bit boring, and they are prefering to buy us amazing honeymoon experiences.
— Gemma and Richard De Brito, Nottingham, on our Facebook wall
Now that the dust has settled, we just wanted to drop you a quick line to say that we were delighted to have chosen your site for our wedding list. It is a brilliant idea, especially for those couples who, like us, have been together for many years and don’t need any more housewares or vouchers. We found the site very easy to set up and use, and it has also been invaluable as a reminder when sending thank you letters to guests. The feedback we have had from our guests has also been 100% positive. Thanks again, and best wishes for the future.
— Edward Bacon and Maddie Baxter, Essex
I too am using Buy Our Honeymoon and the other half and I spent most of Saturday making the finishing touches to our webpage, digging out lots of personal pics to use for captions etc and ordered the little giftcard things you get so we can pop those in with our invites when they arrive.
It made us very VERY excited about the honeymoon and is a lovely thing to sit down and do together and makes you really think about what kind of stuff you want to do whilst you’re on that trip of a lifetime!
Fab concept and am so glad we found it x
— Comment by AJS on the Rock My Wedding blog, May 2010
We wanted to take the opportunity to congratulate you on a fantastic website which enabled our guests to buy us the most amazing honeymoon to the Maldives.
We found it very easy to use, good value and graphically far superior to any of your competitors. We particularly liked the business card with our unique web address that we slipped into our invitations and also many of the developments you made over the past 12 months.
Your help and support in assisting our less web savvy guests to purchase gifts was also excellent. They were very impressed.
We now have the long but pleasurable task of thanking our guests which is made so simple with the gift history section.
— Sian and Luke Smithers, Berkshire
Using this website was one of the smartest things we did with our wedding! It was super easy to setup and use and while a lot of our family and friends were a little hesitant, they ended up loving it!
— Valeska French and Cynthia Mruczek, Arizona, USA
Thank you so much for providing such a great site! We really enjoyed setting up our honeymoon gift list on your easy-to-use site, and appreciated the choice of designs. I looked at others and yours offered the most personalised options. Our family and friends really liked the idea and how they could choose specific things for us on honeymoon. Afterwards it’s been easy to see a record of gifts, even months after the wedding, which has been useful for referring to. Thanks also for the great customer service — you were always helpful — which is just what we needed during the busy wedding planning period. You were recommended to me and I have already recommended you to my friends!
— Jenny and Danny Brent, Devon
What an amazing idea — and an amazingly thoughtful way for our guests to buy us exactly the honeymoon we’d dreamed of. Thank you Buy Our Honeymoon for such unique and modern twists on the traditional wedding gift list.
— Victoria and Mike Goodsir, London
Just wanted to say thank you so much for the great service and site. It worked perfectly and made it easy for our friends and family — which made it easy for us!
— Felicity Murphy and Jack van der Hidde, Los Angeles, USA
We are so pleased with your website and service! We had so many comments from our guests on what a neat and individual idea for a guest list and they absolutely loved being able to pick an activity of the honeymoon. We thank you so much, we have found the whole list easy to create, manage and the emails you send when someone purchases a gift is a really nice touch.
— Reenie and Angus Johnston, London
Thank you so much for helping us with this gift list. The response to the website has been overwhelming and all our friends and family have been incredibly enthused by the site. I would highly recommend this site to anyone who wants to veer away from a traditional gift list. The additional help with planning our trips and the little gift cards were invaluable extras and the whole site is incredibly good value. Thank you so much!
— Angela Hall and Philip McGough, Manchester
Really excellent service. Loved the way we could personalise our list and how easy it was to use. Shelley couldn’t have been more helpful!
— Natalie Green and Tom Beecroft, Hertfordshire
Another satisfied customer here! We have also made use of their planning service — extremely useful! We also added a Back Home section so that we could have a couple of more traditional gifts, as well.
So far we have cocktails, a candlelight dinner cruise, and breakfast in bed!
— Comment by Becca on the Rock My Wedding blog, May 2010
Thank you so much for such an excellent service, our registry worked brilliantly! This website was exactly what we wanted for our gift registry and it gave us the freedom and flexibility to put whatever we wanted, in a bright funky and original way. All of our emailed requests and questions were taken care of staight away, and the helpful hints were indeed helpful when constructing our registry.
I just wanted to write to let you know we have nothing but praise for your company and service, and we have already been passing on your details to other soon-to-be-weds.
— Nicky and Chris Jones, Auckland, New Zealand
We have used your service and thought it fantastic — we couldn’t fault the website in any way. It’s a great concept that gave us the chance to use your design skills, but maintain total autonomy when it came to cash.
— Katie Bowman and Mike Chamberlain, London
This site was exactly what I was looking for. I didn’t want a traditional gift list, but also didn’t have time to build myself a website. Buy Our Honeymoon was easy to use, flexible and most importantly looked fab! The text was thoughtful and tactful and the gift list cards were a great touch. Would completely recommend this service to others.
The trial also gave me confidence in the service before I purchased.
— Alex Depledge and David Cockle, London
Can I say again how much we LOVE the site!!! I have already had friends asking for the address so they can pass it on, everyone loves it!!!
— Catherine Rossall and Sam Wilkinson, Cheshire
A fantastic service!! Your site was easy to use and great fun!! All of our guests commented on what a wonderful idea it was and loved reading our wedding pages!! Would very much recommend you!!
— Amy Mears and Richard Tarr, Northamptonshire
The website is fantastic and easy to use and the link through to PayPal was brilliant. Your service was great when elderly Aunts had questions relating to the service and your build team was very accommodating when we suggested a few changes that we would have liked. Overall, a first class product and service that we shall be recommending to friends and family for a long time to come.
— Alan and Ellie Faherty, Hampshire
★★★★★ — My brother gave me the website details after seeing a review in a newspaper. What a brilliant idea it was. Shelley was so helpful and got me up and running. Making the page for friends and family to see so that they knew what they could buy us was really easy to do. We had ideas from other people to guide us then we tweaked it to our own style. Far more of our guests used it than I thought. It worked well for the people who don’t normally like to give money directly and want to buy a present as they felt that they were. Our list was mainly generic, for any of the places that we stopped of at so that our schedule was not crazy.
— Review by kirstief on reviewcentre.com, December 2009
Thank you for a fantastic service, you made our lives leading up to our wedding very easy. We are still amazed how efficient, quick and easy it was to get set up and our guests loved the personalised descriptions and photo we were able to upload. We will happily recommend your services to anyone planning on getting married...
— Alex Gerl and Tim Bevan, London
We had so much fun creating our registry with Buy Our Honeymoon — it was easy to use, our friends and family loved it, and we are looking forward to a fantastic trip to NYC this summer!
— Courtney and Eric Bayer, Louisiana, USA, on our Facebook wall
What a fantastic website. We were so very very impressed with everything on here. It was easy, simple yet very effective. I loved planning our 6-month honeymoon on your site so that so that guests could buy us some experiences. Being able to upload your own images really gave it a personal feel.
If I ever had any questions your response was extremely quick which for me made a huge amounts of difference when working on a little project and you’re in the throws of things.
— Claire and Tim Maynard, Surrey
We thought Buy Our Honeymoon was a brilliant idea right from the start, but it surpassed our expectations. It was so easy to use, FUN to use, great value for money and our guests really loved the idea and had a great time picking gifts for us. What we hadn’t really thought about was how much more special it would make the honeymoon itself, as each time we did one of our gifts we thought about the people that bought it for us. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
— Karen Dawe and Stuart Down, Bristol
I think this a great idea, and I’m actually really enjoying adding everything to my list! And I really like the fact you do not take a %-commission of the total money at the end, as that’s one thing that really annoyed me looking at other similar sites! Keep up the good work!
— Leah Burns and John Miller, Kent, on our Facebook wall
Thank you so much for helping us create the honeymoon and website of our dreams. We had a fantastic time and all our guests commented on what a great idea it was to have a honeymoon website and also how easy it was to use.
— Julie and James Emmanuel, Manchester
I just wanted to say how fantastic this site was. My partner and I have been together for 12 years so really didn’t need any more gifts for our already full house. We were nervous about asking for money for our honeymoon in case it appeared rude but when I found your site it seemed like the perfect way of doing it — and it was! So many people (and a lot of them older) actually commented how great an idea it was, and it really gave them a real feel of what their money was going towards and what we would be doing on our honeymoon. It is also really nice to be able to look back at it and remember the ideas we had for the honeymoon.
— Sara Clark and Anthony Russell, Devon
The couple sets up a web page which introduces their guests to the idea. One of our favorites was this one. Isn’t that perfectly gracious? Don’t you just love them, sight unseen? … You can just see their dream honeymoon, can’t you? And if you were friends of theirs, wouldn’t you just love to help them get it?
— Ilona Peltz, AisleDash blog review, July 2008
I have been recommending the website to everyone I know who’s getting married and they all absolutely love it!
— Lana Pugh and Gareth Hughes, Wales
We’ve just sent out our invitations and people are starting to reserve items from our list, and we’ve had loads of comments about what a great website it is and what a novel idea. It’s all so easy to set up and the service is fab too - thank you x
— Sarah and Gary Evans, West Midlands, on our Facebook wall
Just a quick one to say I think your website is absolutely brilliant and that you have really made our wedding gift list so much more interesting than just asking for money!
— Catherine Smith and Adrian Mills, Solihull
This website and service was fantastic — perfect — just what we wanted/needed. What could be a more perfect way to pay for a honeymoon of a lifetime without actually asking for cash? Thank you!
— Jill Parker and Matthew Wood, Kent
I was talking to Richard earlier about how lovely you have been and how I am sure you are a woman who never sleeps (judging by the prompt replies I get to me e-mails at odd hours). Thank you for for all your attention, I have to say this is one wedding related thing that has been a breeze! I will heartily recommend you when asked.
— Clare Hutchinson and Richard Goodchild, Ipswich
Thank you so much. This is such a great idea and exactly what we were looking for.
— Christopher O’Connor and Clayton Dowty, New York, USA
I totally love it — and John does too … I’m really really happy!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
— Emma and John Driver, County Durham
★★★★★ — Excellent site – very easy to use and update all the information. Really great idea for gift list and all our guests commented on it and enjoyed using it. It made our gift list unique and meant we had the spending money for the honeymoon of our dreams. Customer service on site also fantastic!
— Review by kirstykn on reviewcentre.com, October 2009
This is just a quick email to say thank you to you and the company for all your help! We just got back from New York a few days ago and had a fantastic time. We got bought a lot of things from the site which enabled us to make the honeymoon even more memorable! We also got a lot of positive comments from our guests about the whole buy-our-honeymoon idea — think we may have a few friends who’ll use it in the future.
— Mark Hardie and Sylvia Nash, Edinburgh
We found your site absolutely brilliant. Many of our wedding guests commented on what a fantastic idea it was and how easy it is to use. We had so much fun making this site and we would reccommend to everyone! Thanks to Buy Our Honeymoon and our family and friends we had a phenomenal two weeks in Orlando in pure luxury!! Fantastic site, fantastic ideas and fantastic service; we cannot sing your praises enough!! Thank you to everyone involved!!!
— Helen and Matthew Harris, Newport
Thank you for an absolutely awesome service and a fantastic idea. We always wanted money for our honeymoon but had no idea how to ask for it. Buy Our Honeymoon provided that answer, and more. Our guests were fascinated by the concept and we certainly had a memorable honeymoon. We even have enough funds left to go back to Paris in August for a mini honeymoon to do all of the things we didn’t manage last time!! We enjoyed making up our list and enjoyed knowing that everything we did on honeymoon was been selected for us by our friends and was been chosen with as much care and love than if they were shopping for the more conventional wedding list. If anything, we found our gifts to be more personal to us than anything material we could have asked for.
— Elizabeth and Matt Bryant, Kent
Thank you so much for such a fab service. So many of our guests commented on how much they loved our list — and how easy it was to use! We also opted for you guys to suggest gifts for our list and the ones you came up with were perfect. One less thing to worry about with all the other stuff on the to do list!
— Emily and George McCullough, Surrey
I thought the service was great, you guys were really helpful and I liked the way you were keen to make improvements to the service. I have probably recommended you to at least 5 other couples.
— Charlotte and Nick Penfold, London
Instead of just registering for household goods, why not register where your honeymoon will be and have people help you with the little added things like parasailing?
— Sean P. Aune, 30+ Online Tools for the Perfect Wedding, Mashable, March 2008
Thank you very much for your excellent service. We had a great wedding and honeymoon, and your website received lots of compliments. I found it easy to use, as did the guests who reserved gifts. It was well worth the money — and I would definitely recommend your website to anyone looking for this sort of service.
— Jenna and Chris Sainsbury, Birmingham
My husband and I will be recommending you guys to anyone getting married who is looking for an alternative to the boring old John Lewis gift list. We found your site easy to use, had fun setting our gift list page up and have found the gift history page a godsend when writing our thank you cards. Totally satisfied with your innovative service!
— Annabel and Andrew Williams, London, on our Facebook wall
I would like to take this opportunity to say how pleased both me and my husband were with the service we received from Buy Our Honeymoon. You always responded to our questions within a matter of hours and we were very impressed how easy the website was to use for both us and our wedding guests. We have subsequently had the most amazing, action-packed honeymoon and we couldn’t have organised it so easily without your help — thank you!
— Louise and Darren Bullis, Wiltshire
Can’t praise the website enough and our guests love it. I am a travel agent by trade, although I don’t work in travel now, I have booked everything independently to get the best prices. And this website allows us to showcase our fabulous itinerary and all that we have planned on our honeymoon — guests feel as though they are buying us something rather giving cash towards the honeymoon and can’t wait to see the photograph of us enjoying their gift.
— Katy Shepherd and Dan Phillips, Harrogate
I wanted to tell you that lots of our family/friends have been very impressed by the website and the originality of it. So far, we have only heard some very positive feedback. From our perspective as well, we had first tried to do it through [a competitor], but the quality of design/service you are offering is far beyond their reach, and so we did not hesitate for long before switching to your website.
— Pierre-Adrien Nicolas and Amanda Smith, London
We’re 7 weeks to go to the wedding, and although it’s probably the norm to thanks you guys afterwards, I just had to do it now — the site has been amazing — everyone thinks it is great and they all feel so involved, which is exactly what we wanted. Putting the site together was such a giggle for us, and now we can’t wait to go!
— Tina Hookway and Richard Wood, Doncaster
Just wanted to say that you have been absolutely amazing throughout our whole process of arranging our honeymoon! Clearly we were a bit thick at the start when we had one or two problems with PayPal but you sorted these out without a moment’s hesitation. Our honeymoon was absolutely incredible and wouldn’t have been the same without your help! Thanks again (you were great)
— Jill and Adam Redhouse, London
My personal favourite, largely because it’s a brilliant choice if you’ve organised your honeymoon yourselves or are using a company that doesn’t offer such a service, is Buy Our Honeymoon. It’s entirely customisable, so you get to choose what guests can contribute to — you may want them to put some money towards your flights or your accommodation, or you may prefer to ask for a few special extras that’ll really make your honeymoon memorable — such as a meal in the best restaurant in town, a helicopter ride or some much deserved massages.
— Emma Gibbs, The Honeymoon Project blog review, June 2010
All of our friends and family who used the site thought it was a wonderful idea. I thoroughly enjoyed creating the site and making it personal to us. We got everything we asked for and had the most amazing honeymoon so thank you very much for all of your help!
— Lauren and Graeme Newall, Edinburgh
The list worked perfectly and we had so many compliments on it. We really appreciate your help, you couldn’t have made things easier!
— Maiya and David Vandermeersch, London
We are very glad we chose to use your site rather that just asking for money. People really enjoyed choosing our honeymoon gifts and it was fun for us to put it together. The site was easy to use and your customer service excellent.
— Caroline Piper and Gerard Little, Essex, on our Facebook wall
It’s so nice to do things through your website, you take care so well of everyone! Thanks a lot, you made our honeymoon much much much better! … It was the best trip ever!
And we did not even spend everything, so we got some extra to start the year with, which was very encouraging.
It was a lovely service what you provided and everyone was very enthusiastic participating in it!
Lots of success to you, and many thank you’s again!
— Karina Sabac and Marijn Simons, The Netherlands
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful service — so easy to use and all our guests said they love it! We are now planning the honeymoon of our dreams and are so excited!
— Caroline and Matthew Donald, London, on our Facebook wall
What a fantastic service! You were really helpful at every step and the service felt very personal.
— Hugh Raine and Lucinda Sugden, West Yorkshire
We have had so many nice comments about our wedding gift list — we were very pleased with the service. And it’s great to be able to download the contributions now that we have come to writing thank you letters.
— Melissa and Campbell Stephenson, London
We did this too and couldn’t fault the service. We planned our honeymoon, did research into what we wanted to do and put it all on the site. We had so many comments from guests and raised enough money for all our honeymoon spending money AND we got our bathroom redone when we got back, hehe.
Whenever I get a wedding invite now just asking for cash I think how uncreative when there are options like this about
— Comment by Francesca on the Rock My Wedding blog, May 2010
Now our wedding — and honeymoon — are over, I wanted to convey our many thanks to you and to Buy Our Honeymoon! Our experience of the service has been absolutely brilliant. The site is so easy to use, and we really enjoyed setting our pages up. Putting them together really made us excited about the trip ahead, which hadn’t felt like a reality before! I know that people who bought us gifts enjoyed looking through the pages, and also found it easy to use. We couldn’t have hoped for better, and are very grateful to you!
— Emily Cole and Matthew Spriggs, London
We have just returned from our honeymoon in the rockies and thanks to your website and our amazing friends of course we have had the holiday of a life time…
— Kirsten and Tristan Kimber, Cornwall, on our Facebook wall
I have to say your customer service is fantastic. You totally exceeded my expectations … If I had any doubt about which list service to use, you removed it!
— Charlie Shedden and Jon Flannagan, West Lothian
Just wanted to say how wonderful the website was. It was really easy to set up and looked very professional — lots of people commented on it. It was also great to give people an idea of where we were planning on going and made a great talking point. We also found that by dividing up the excursions and showing people what they were, that we were astounded by people’s generosity and ended up being given the entire list which made our honeymoon extra special and unforgettable.
— Claire and Matthew Buckell, Essex
We were delighted with your service and had the most fantastic honeymoon, with your help.
All our guests commented on how easy the website was to use, and we loved helping to create the different items. We would definitely recommend Buy Our Honeymoon to any couple who are looking forward to an alternative wedding list. 100% professional and a wonderful creative way to create a honeymoon.
— Sarah Mahomed-Ross and Dexter Mahomed, London
Buy Our Honeymoon charges a one-time fee and that’s it. No commission is taken from you or anyone who buys you a gift. You can include any items you like in your online registry, even mixing hotel and travel options with household gifts. The money is not held by Buy Our Honeymoon; rather, it’s paid directly and immediately to you through PayPal or other options.
— Suzie Rodriguez, Examiner.com, July 2009
Thank you very much for the service you provided in setting up the webpage for our guests.
From start to finish the process was easy and simple, we were able to choose everything about our page so it could be tailored exactly how we wanted it.
The extra service we paid for where ideas were given to us in relation to the places we visited was great too. We didn’t know about some of the things in Mauritius until we’d seen your ideas.
We’ll definately recommend you to all our friends, thank you very much again.
— Luke Broadbent and Amy Jones, York
I love this idea. You can customize your wish list and register for everything from deeply romantic honeymoon experiences to hepatitis vaccinations to sock yarn. And Shelley and Andrew Green, the couple who created and run it, are fantastic and helpful. I highly recommend it to anyone who’s getting hitched but doesn’t need china.
— Rosemary Rowe and Kate Trgovac, Vancouver, on Rosemary’s blog
Thanks very much again for all your answers. Very prompt and I will certainly be recommending this site to anyone I know that is wanting to set up something like this in the future.
— Martin Hill and Claire Mould, Kent
Thank you very much, all our guests liked very much this webpage, and enjoyed its user-friendly tools.
— Luis Garcia and Debbie Elvins, Belgium
We loved using Buy Our Honeymoon for our wedding gift list. It’s great to able to logon anytime and see what’s happening, plus it was exciting to get the emails telling us we had new gifts!
Also, when we ordered additional cards they arrived really quickly, so all in all we were really happy with the site.
— James Clark and Melissa Albert, Northamptonshire
Another eco-friendly option is to register for experiences such as Buy Our Honeymoon where guests can purchase brunch for you and your sweetie on your honeymoon to Paris or a balloon tour over Provence.
— Shannon Leahy, Wedded Twist blog, May 2010
We just wanted to say that we were really impressed with this site, and our guests all commented on its originality when ordering our gifts. It really helped to add to the ’uniqueness’ we wanted from our special day, we will definitely recommend you in future!
— Paula and Ben Miles-Matthewson, Surrey
It was a fantastic service and we are loving saying thanks to our family and friends as we trot around on our dream honeymoon!
— Susan Bishop and Jonathan Scarr, Hertfordshire
The set up went smoothly — the trial idea was a big plus for me. And the site was fantastic. It had a much more professional look to it than other comparable sites and was more flexible too. I am quite a technophobe and our site still looked fabulous because it was so simple to use and of such high quality.
— Suzanne and Chris Staden, London
We were very pleased with the service you offered and the detail included! Our guest list got loads of positive comments and everybody loved the idea of making our honeymoon a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
— Kate and Tom Dudek, Warwickshire
Fantastic website and service. I can only say positive things about the value for money and ease of use of the whole service. Such a clever and simple idea. It really met our needs and no one said they found it hard to use or anything like that. THANKS
— Jackie Mundy and Glenn Howie, Surrey
★★★★★ — I had looked at a few similar sites that arrange a gift list and this was by far the best. … My guests absolutely loved our page and commented on what a fantastic idea it is. It looks very professional and most of the guests used it, even the technophobes. I was always kept updated and felt if I had any issues they would have been solved promptly. I would thoroughly recommend this site, it was a joy to use.
— Review by Charchar16 on reviewcentre.com, October 2010
As a couple that have lived together for several years, we thought this website was a fantastic idea. It seems our friends and family agree as everyone commented on what a fantastic idea it was & we were overwhelmed by people’s generosity. We would not hesitate to recommend this service, it was easy & pain free to set up and to be able to still view our gift history is wonderful. Thank you for helping us to have a fantastic honeymoon!
— Debra and Peter Gravill, Cheshire
We were really impressed with your services. I had a telephone conversation regarding a query when we first joined you and it was very professional, friendly and helpful.
— Tamara and Matthew Smith, Worcestershire
We loved using your website and found it very easy to do. Our guests also loved it and were pleased to know all about the honeymoon. It was lovely to be able to have so much flexibility in providing words and images ourselves. I am happy to say that we are now back from our dream honeymoon and had a fantastic time. We printed out the Excel-based list of who had bought us what and are still using the website to ‘manage’ our thank you letters and photos that we will send out with them.
— Melloney Tyte and James Morris, Berkshire
Thank you so much to everyone at Buy Our Honeymoon for making our honeymoon dreams a reality.
— Rachel and Lawrence Burrows, London
We found your site extrememly successful and well run. All our guests commented on the originalilty of it and it allowed us to have the honeymoon of our dreams which we may not have otherwise been able to have. We have consequently recommended your site to several of our friends engaged to be married.
— Louis and Jessie Lancaster, Hertfordshire
With bespoke packages and a research service, guests can really get a taste of what they are setting you up for whether it’s a day of jetskiing or a sunset cruise. There isn’t a service charge and guests can offer you gifts via PayPal, cheque or in person.
— Camilla Chafer, Bridalwave blog review, April 2007
We think you have a great concept, website style and the look is good. Your website is the only one I have found that provides the hosting of the list etc and leaves the money transactions to our guests’ discretion. The other websites didn’t give me enough confidence in that area.
— John Bailey and Lisa Wood, Worcester
We wanted to say that your website was absolutely fabulous!! We have recommended it to all of our engaged friends so we hope you get a few contracts through our recommendation!
— Kathryn Kennedy and Ben Larsen, London
I LOVE this service. By far the coolest and most fun wedding registry ever, and definitely the prettiest and best value of the honeymoon registry sites. Thanks again!
— Lynsey McCarthy and Gerald Buerer, California, USA
Our list is fantastic and we’ve received so many compliments at how personal it is, so we’re really pleased to have set up our list with you. Thanks so much for all your help in getting an ideal URL for us, and for your wonderful software for making it all so easy!
— Tracey Fraser and Martin Robinson, Tyne and Wear
We’re really enjoying your website — thank you so much for creating it! Your story was so nice to read — I sensed right away that you were great people, and I really like the site you have put together. The artwork is very attractive and simple, and to us, it’s worth the money to have this interface.
— Sarah Brown and Jeff Napper, Pennsylvania, USA
A big thank you for all your help in setting up our list! Everybody absolutely loved it and found it so easy to use! It was the perfect way to help us with our honeymoon, and our friends enjoyed buying experiences as it felt like they were buying something specific for us, and not just giving us money! We found that each one of them bought the gift that most reflected their personalities, and we still remember all of their comments, as they were so funny and appropriate!
— Benedetta and Federico Sali, London
Thanks for all your help. The website worked a treat, we got what we wanted and our guests bought us things that we really wanted — river tubing not towels!
— Katie O’Brien and Kester Horn, North Yorkshire
Many thanks for your kind generosity, we have had nothing but good experiences with creating the list so far, a fantastic site and an invaluable tool in our honeymoon planning!
— Andy Law and Abbie Carr, Aberdeen
Honeymoons can be expensive, so why not create a registry for it? I think it’s a great idea especially for those hard-to-buy-for couples who already have everything or for couples who are heading into their second marriage.
— Lynn Little, Tie The Knot blog review, August 2007
Thanks for providing such a perfect service! Of the people so far who have seen our list they think it is an amazing idea, and hopefully it will get us our dream honeymoon, especially after all the expense of the big day itself.
— Jodie White and Michael Knock, Middlesex
We’ve just returned from our honeymoon in Egypt — which wouldn’t have been possible without this wonderful service!
Thank you for making it happen.
— Holly and Kevin Stevens, Essex, on our Facebook wall
I met a lovely lady by the name of Shelley at the Earls Court wedding fair, and Buy Our Honeymoon was just what we were after. We had seen other similar ideas, however the people running the sites took a percentage of the gift, and there was something about that we didn’t like! With Honeymoon Promises, we pay a management fee, and all of the guests’ gifts go directly to the honeymoon fund! She has also been an absolute star in giving us some ideas while we are touring the West coast of the States! If you know anyone else getting married, I can’t recommend her highly enough!
— Anita Cade, Surrey, on her wedding web site
The site is looking fab, thanks for the service you provide.
— Celia Latchman and Robert Hipgrave, Middlesex
Thank you for this terrific service. We will continue to recommend to our friends as you have been very helpful and have provided excellent customer service. We had a wonderful wedding and honeymoon. Thank you Buy Our Honeymoon.
— Gina Febbraro and Ajay Kapoor, Colorado, USA
Once again thank you so much for your help, we will not hesitate in recommending you to anyone!
— Louisa Stewart and Marvin Brewster, Hertfordshire
I came across your web site last Wednesday while I was trying to find a way of asking our wedding guests for money towards our honeymoon, without it sounding really crass. And I found it! I am absolutely hooked. What a fantastic idea and so easy to use. I will certainly be recommending it to everyone I know!
— Stephanie Carter and Alain Grandjean, Bristol
We had (and are still having) an amazing honeymoon. This service was awesome, we loved it, our guests loved it… fantastic!
— Tim and Katrina Smith, Bristol, on our Facebook wall
Great idea and great website that’s already a talking point amongst guests and our wedding day is not here yet!
— Colin Bennett and Katie Jackson, Essex
The thing that struck me about Buy our Honeymoon was its simplicity and value for money … I think it’s a fabulous idea. It is a fun way for guests to contribute and a practical and very flexible way for the couple to collect a financial contribution for what is one of the most expensive parts of a wedding.
— Matt Price, Weddingo blog review, April 2008
Just to let you know, I put our wedding list together yesterday and your site is excellent! Really easy to use and very well put together. I own my own design & print consultancy and we do loads of websites and brochures etc so it’s always nice to come across something that meets our high standards!
— James Moore and Julie Barton, Kent
Your service was fantastic and I’ve recommended it to everyone who mentions a bridal list!

Thanks so much for helping make this lengthy process easy for us both. It looks great, Shelley, thanks a million.
— Sally Whitworth and Steve Vernon, London
We thought your wedding site was brilliant. So many people said what a great idea it was, as we’ve been together a long time, we have most things we need — and what we really needed was a great honeymoon. This has been made possible with your website and we got pretty much everything we put on the site bought for us. Very simple to use. A great idea and we would certainly recommend it to brides to be.
— Wendy and Steve Halls, Devon
Just wanted to let you know that we got your cards and sent them out Friday! We are so excited to hear everyone’s response. We set up our website, and we’re very pleased with how it came out. … So far all the feedback from our friends and family is how neat of an idea the honeymoon registry is.
— Jason and Amy Lehman, Alabama, USA
Thanks again for everything, you have been outstanding!
— Kerry Richardson and Ben Mainwaring, Northampton
Many thanks for a really good experience on your site. Everything worked perfectly and it helped us to have a truly memorable honeymoon.
