There is a reason why there so many artistic, crafty, and smart people in the wedding industry. This is one of the very few industries where a photographer, organizer, baker, decorator, and all the others can express their skills and make dreams come true for their clients.
This is why weddings cost so much because everyone involved has a reason to make their part of your wedding perfect.
Honeyfund is the most popular wedding registry site in the world. Honeyfund is a free Crowdfunding site specifically for the couple. It is also free for the gift givers and they can do it from their computer or iPhone. When a couple creates a Honeyfund account, they create a way for their family and friends to give them wedding gifts that they really want. The couple sets up the fund and shows their guests what they are trying to accomplish.
They may have a wish for a very special wedding gown that is made to fit or a special dress for a junior bridesmaid. They link the site to the gown of her dreams, and her guests contribute the money they have set aside for their gifting and the funds grow until the dream dress becomes a reality.
The bride is happy and the guests are thrilled to gift something special. Other parts of the wedding, honeymoon, travel, and reception can be included in the Honeyfund.
The bride can let the gift giver feel even better about helping with the gown by listing her intentions for the gown after the wedding. She may explain that the dress will be kept and handed down through future generations. Or she may announce her plans to donate the dress to a bride who is less fortunate, or to a group that uses the beautiful fabric to make lovely gowns and bonnets for babies who became angels at birth.
In any event, the guest will know that they are part of making your dreams and others dreams come true and what greater joy is that?
Another special part of a wedding is the photography. When the wedding finally comes together and the couple knows their dream is about to be their reality, they want the best photographer. The professional photographer will have a website and portfolio to show potential customers and their guests the packages that will memorialize this special occasion. Guests simply gift the couple the funds they intended for the traditional gift, and together they build the funds to have these wonderful memories forever.
Cutting costs but never style
Wedding cakes have been a long-standing tradition. But in recent years they are moving over and making way for the beautiful and colorful candy buffet. They are glamorous easy to put together and simply beautiful with colorful candies.
Other Honeyfund ideas
A couple may choose a smaller wedding and their Honeyfund will reflect that. They may ask for contributions for a special family to travel from other countries to attend their celebration. Or they may ask for contributions to be made to assist a friend or family member who is suffering illness or financial setback.
Here are a few ideas that have been seen on Honeyfund accounts:
- Donations to charity
- Donations to planet conservation organizations
- Funds to use as a downpayment on a home
- Paying off student loans and other debt
- Remodeling or adding a nursery to a home
- College fund contributions for children
Of course, your Honeyfund for traditional gifts as well. Do you want a special coffee maker, a nice bedding set, or a television for the living room? You can list those things and link them to the stores they can find them.
