As an older couple, we didn't want traditional wedding gifts of household items, but loved the idea of a super-luxurious honeymoon. Our family and friends were delighted to help pay for this via the site, and many commented how much easier it was for them to choose a gift for us. (read more)

Buy Our Honyemoon was easy and efficient from Day One. The templates were great, and it was so easy to set up. I could use my PC or ipad or phone to create the list as I went along. I had one technical difficulty and I rang the helpline and got it resolved immediately. We set up payments via GoCardless and PayPal which all worked seamlessly. Our guests enjoyed choosing all the things they could buy for our honeymoon, but we added some household things as well, so it was great to be able to... (read more)

Love this website - buy our honeymoon! Great when you don't want pots and pans but love your holidays! This gives you the chance to make the honeymoon even more special with treats you would not normally have! The website is really easy to use and personalise as much or as little as you want. it provides you with plenty of ideas and prompts along the way. You can even choose the URL you use on your invites! There is a real personal service too as only down side is compatibility with iPads... (read more)

Initially, we were a bit concerned about how to 'word' our list but the site gave great ideas and tips. Putting together out list made us even more excited about our honeymoon, and really made us research what was available, thus making sure we got the best of everything. It was so easy to use, both for us and our guests, and everyone felt that they were making a real contribution to the start of our married life. I really can't reccomend it highly enough. Fantastic!

Service was great - easy and straightforward to use. I chose the option of paying £5 for the team to create our list for us - this worked really well and meant that we found some out of the way places to visit that we'd never have thought of going to and also did some activities that we would never have done as well. Love the gift list cards they send out to be included with your invitations as well. Would definitely recommend! (read more)

This was the perfect tool for us. We didn’t want any gifts as we have recently merged two households. Contributions to our honeymoon seemed the perfect idea. We had seen a couple of travel agents do this kind of thing, but it tied us to a travel agent and they didn’t seem the best value – and limited our choice especially for the specialist diving honeymoon we wanted. This was the perfect solution – allowed us to have exactly the honey moon we wanted, allowed guest to feel they... (read more)

Wow, I could not recommend this site more. It was so easy to set-up and looked great, our guests were very impressed with overall look. The add on service we purchased which meant they provided huge list of possible idea's/ entries on our destination save a huge amount of time and effort on our part. It was all done super quickly and efficiently. With a step by step guide for everything including how to set up pay pal accounts etc. At any time you can view who'd bought what, how they...

As folks in our 30s who were both home owners before we met, and now have a home together we have enough toasters, irons, kettles and towels to last us a lifetime - so when it came to a wedding list we were at a bit of a loss. We didn't like the idea of people just giving us cash, we wanted something more personal. I'd read in a bridal mag about this idea, and while I didn't use the one they mentioned (!) I did a google search and found buyourhoneymoon. We were delighted with the quick... (read more)

I cannot fault Buy Our Honeymoon. All went off without a hitch and worked well with PayPal too so we got the cash very easily. A great alternative to just asking for money for gifts and our friends and family thought it was a great idea. We're in the middle of writing our thank you cards now with a photo of us doing the activity our guests each paid for. (read more)

We were extremely pleased with the website: every little detail has been thought through allowing to customise the output the guests can see to your requirements. The staff were extremely helpful in answering all our questions and even sent us a number of wedding lists from other guests who travelled to the same place as us and required the list to be in 2 different languages: this gave us lots of ideas and was extremely helpful. The output really impressed our guests and most of them... (read more)

We had so much fun using Buy Our Honeymoon for our gift list! It's so easy to use but looks so professionally done. We loved that we could personalise it so much and it was a wonderful way of involving our friends and family in our honeymoon plans. Every little detail has been thought of (we especially loved that there's a choice of different website names for the list that can be sent to guests and that gifts can be priced in different currencies). It's good value for money, the customer... (read more)

I first came across Buy Our Honeymoon when a friend got married last year. She recommended it and I was so impressed with the trial that I signed up. It's a really easy site to use and whenever I had any queries (particularly about setting up PayPal which is the trickiest part)they were answered very quickly. It was simple to add text and pictures and we made the list look like our own and fit in with our wedding very easily. The business cards for the website that come as part of the... (read more)

We loved the website, our family and friends found it so fun and easy to use and really enjoyed buying our honeymoon. It was easy to set up our site.

It was so exciting seeing what each person bought for us and the downloadable spreadsheet was really helpful in writing thank you cards. (read more)

We weren't sure we wanted to have a wedding list at all, we don't need anything having lived together for 4 years already and we certainly didn't want to receive cold hard cash. We were told categorically by a number of our guests that we needed to do something and the only thing we could think of would be to have some help making our honeymoon really special. Buy Our Honeymoon was perfect. We were able to choose whatever items we wanted and completely tailor it to us. We were also able to... (read more)

This website was so easy to use and I love the fact that you can personalise it and make it so individual to you and your husband (or wife!) to be. The customer service was exceptional and all my emails and queries were responded to within 24 hours, I was very impressed. Not only was the website easy to set up but it is immediately available to your guests and easy for them to use as well. I have nothing negative to say and would not hesitate in recommending this site to family and... (read more)

As stated by anoter reviewer, I found the restrictions to have all payments made to a paypal account pretty restrictive - it meant that I had to set up a paypal account specially and then they took a sizeable chunk of the donations made toward our honeymmoon as a commission. There is probably a warning about this in the fineprint but it would have been nice to be told outright when I signed up rather than only realising once the money was gone. Otherwise, the website is easy to use and... (read more)

Would recommend this 'idea' and definetly this site. We were unsure about asking for money and this really helped and it went down fantastic with others and so many said what a good idea - I think it then helped us get money (without sounding greedy) rather than the guest buying something they prefered rather than what we prefered. Just planning what to put on it was enjoyable and we also put 'traditional' items such as pots and pans on the list. The site is soooo easy to use, you can... (read more)

The website is super easy to use. We really enjoyed setting our list up - it was a challenge thinking of fun things to do on honeymoon but cool too! The format of the site helped us to make the layout funky and the comments personal so it fitted in with the theme of our wedding. Then finally our guests loved it and were really generous!

I did a great deal of research into competing websites before finally setting up our honeymoon gift list with Buyourhoneymoon. I was so glad with the choice I made. The options to personalise the site were endless and that gave me the chance to really tailor the site to my specific requirements.

We have had many comments from our guests about what a good idea it was to have a list with Buy Our Honeymoon.
We chose to use Buy Our Honeymoon rather than any other due to the strength of designs we could choose from. The look and feel of our page was fantastic.
Once we'd signed up it was so very easy to use and we even made use of the help to fill our list with other things people had put when going to the same destination.
It was great getting the emails once people had bought... (read more)

Really useful site for setting up honeymoon payments, a very user friendly and professional service!
Only negative was with Paypal taking a percentage of the money donated to us but this is not Buy Our Honeymoon's fault. Perhaps BOH could set up their own payment donation system in the future?
Many thanks for your help and support. (read more)

A really excellent service that enabled us to bring together a range of items. We didn't really want a normal wedding list as we were encouraging family and friends to give to charity or buy items for our honeymoon.
It took about an hour to set up the website using a personalised theme perfect for our needs, and it was super-easy to keep track of who had bought items, to add more when we got low and to write thank-yous after the event.
Although the money must go via Paypal this was easy... (read more)

It is rare that I am impressed by service standards, but Buy Our Honeymoon blew me away! This service is IMPECCABLE! The 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. I couldn't believe how fast my cards arrived to insert into invitations, and any query we had was dealt with immediately.

Brilliant website. We wanted guests to be able to purchase honeymoon activities rather than just contribute to the honeymoon, that way they felt as if they were buying something specific.
The website looks very professional, is extremely easy to use and they responded to the couple of queries I had almost immediately!

What a fantastic honeymoon in Italy we had as a result of using buyourhoneymoon honeymoon registry - our friends loved the idea and really enjoyed choosing which activities they would contribute to - and creating the website was fun and gave us something to look forward to in the dark days of scrimping and saving to pay for the big day.

This website has been the best way for us to register for gifts for our wedding ever - it is so informal, and we've been able to tailor it to our personalities and to those of our guests. I really have to give credit to Shelley, who runs the site, as well. When our first set of cards to put in the invitations got lost in the post, Shelley sent a second lot no questions asked. When these then also got lost in the post, Shelley offered to send some more, again no questions asked and at no... (read more)

Used the site for our wedding gift list and it was fab. Easy to set up, clear reasonable costing and they're very quick at getting back with any queries.
The themes are good to apply to your own honeymoon type. Ours was perfect for our Thai holiday.
It is just worth remembering that it's mainly based on using Paypal, who will take a cut from any money deposited there when you withdraw it. Depending on how lovely and generous your friends and family are, this cost does mount up.

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.
