Registrant's Frequently Asked Questions
What does this celebration gift registry provide?

With no cost to set up, you receive a personal website, announcement cards, a blog and more! You can even post unlimited photos on your photo album and your friends and family can print them out for free!
We are not an IOU or wish list and cater more to celebration registrants that feel service is important for them, their family and friends. If you feel your guests may want assistance or might want to use a credit card online, we will take care of your gifts and deliver them straight to your account. Through the celebration registry, your guests can give you portions of your trip or destination celebration as a gift!Back To Top
Why should we use this celebration registry?
Using the celebration registry allows you to receive money as gifts from friends and family to apply directly to your trip or celebration. Using a registry is much more personal than asking your guests outright for cash! You can register, get the word out early and have gift money come in to help with the initial costs of the trip.Back To Top

How will I know how much to ask for?
When you set up your celebration registry, we give you a suggested gift amount for each tour or activity per person in that area. However, you are free to ask for whatever you would like. We recommend using varied denominations to accommodate all guests and checking with your travel professional or supplier for exact pricing. All prices vary by location, availability, and are subject to change without notice
. You can break down the amounts any way you choose. For example, if an item is going to cost you $200.00, you may ask for "2 gifts of $100.00" or "4 gifts of $50.00," etc.Back To Top
Does the celebration registry help with the trip travel or destination celebration arrangements?
We do not book travel directly, although we encourage you to work closely with one of our travel professionals who can help design the trip that is uniquely yours. Many include special VIP amenities and benefits available only when you book with one of our travel professionals. These added touches can make all the difference in your trip experience!Back To Top

How much does it cost to use the celebration registry and celebration personal website?
We charge a small service & handling fee to maintain a professional full service registry for you, your friends and family. This service & handling fee provides an ad free registry experience, wedding website and social networking tools with the highest level of security, encryption and insurance. Our team is here to answer calls toll free, process checks and credit card transactions of your guests.
You may choose whether you'd like the service & handling fee to be added or deducted from each gift amount. Adding it to the transaction means that the purchaser will be charged a 10% service & handling fee at check-out. Deducting the service & handling fee will have the gift amount transfer at 7% less than the listed amount to you, with the gift purchaser paying a reduced service fee of 3%. If the fee is added to the gift, purchasers can receive a 3% discount if they choose to mail a check directly bringing the total service fee to 7%.
Guests from around the world can make a contribution towards your honeymoon with ease which means no shipping or carrying gifts with them to your wedding destination. Please feel free to call us with any questions.Back To Top
