Today’s Wedding Registry

In the past, brides set-up elaborate registries with fine stores when they were getting married. This allowed guest to purchase pieces of china, silverware, linens, and tea sets that matched what the bride was collecting. But today’s bride has a different agenda. Newlyweds today have a different mindset. They do not feel the need to follow in the footsteps of their grandmothers. Many couples live together before marriage.  They buy homes and furnish these homes before


marriage. The modern couple may want a different type of wedding registry. Honeyfund is a wedding registry that is very popular. Friends and family can sign into your easy to set up Honeyfund account and purchase particular items for the couples honeymoon. For example, you may want to pay for a night at the hotel, or a dinner at a nice restaurant, or a special activity the couple have chosen. The beauty of the Honeyfund registry is that a gift giver does not have to pay for the entirety of anything. For example, the registry may say the couple needs $3000.00 for travel. Several people can contribute to this gift. Every time someone contributes to the gift, the amount needed is reduced. Your gifting power is increased by teaming up with others. By signing on to the free Honeyfund account guests can purchase (sure to please) their wedding gifts online. It is quick and easy.  In some cases the couple would rather the guests to chip-in on the cost of a destination wedding.  The money you would have spent on a gift is easily spent on helping with the expenses of the wedding.



Plumfund is another fantastic crowdfunding site.  Plumfund is a totally free site as there are no transaction fees and no set-up fees. Plumfund allows the bride and groom freedom to incorporate a variety of needs.  Traditional registries (from department stores) can be included, as can the honeymoon requests. But, Plumfund goes beyond that. Some couples would rather the funds people would spend on them go to a cause. The funds may go to a friend or family member who is suffering from illness, or a disaster. The bride and groom may have everything they need and would like to help the family member or friend who so desperately needs help.  They may set-up a plumfund to go to a particular charity. Providing a free fundraising site makes it easy to donate to this cause.  


Other nontraditional gifts that can be satisfied with a Plumfund account include:


  • Asking for funds to pay off student loans, instead of gifts
  • A Plumfund account to collect for the downpayment on a home
  • House renovation funds
  • Set up a nesting fund for future children
  • Emergency fund


With registries such as Honeyfund.Com and Plumfund.Com, today’s newlyweds can design a wedding that goes with their brand. This is a way to allow people who care about them to use their funds in a way that is meaningful to the couple.  Whether it is for a honeymoon on an island or a donation to charity, gift giving has never been easier.
