A wedding is a special union merging families, experiences, even material items. With more people waiting until later in their lives to tie the knot, traditional wedding gifts are becoming less relevant. Do you really need another toaster when you and your significant already have two from your single days?
Traveler's Joy is a website that offers a different way for friends and families to recognize your unique day without purchasing unnecessary items for your new household. Similar to a conventional wedding registry site, Traveler's Joy allows you to register your honeymoon or post-wedding vacation online.
Let's say your honeymoon plans include a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Paris. You set up your own registry page that enables friends and families to contribute towards making that time together truly unforgettable. They may provide funds towards your horse drawn carriage tour of the city, or for an upscale meal at a five-star restaurant, tickets to a museum, The Folies Bergère…
Everything is done through an easy-to-use interface that allows the giver to quickly and easily select the honeymoon gift they would like to give. The money is charged to their credit card, you are able to withdraw the funds before, during or after your trip from an account that is set up for you at Wachovia Bank. You can notify your wedding guests about the registry through an automatic email.
It is a concept for people who value travel experiences over material goods. The only drawback is that the site charges a 7.5% fee for the total gifts received. That isn't necessarily a high price to pay to avoid wedding gifts you really don't want and need, to have the honeymoon you will remember for the rest of your life.
