Guest Post: Plan the Perfect Honeymoon with Honeyfund

HoneyfundxDetailsMadeSimple

Marrying your better half is the first step in starting a beautiful life together. As a couple, embarking on this journey will have its ups and downs, but you’ll know if you are right for one another before you step foot on the altar on your big day.

This courageous journey is exciting to say the least. And the adventure begins on the glorious honeymoon vacation that you’ll take soon after you recite your vows during the marriage ceremony.

Paying for a wedding is an expensive proposition. In order to have the wedding of your dreams, you took every chance that you had to raise capital or save money so that your big day would be perfect when the time came. You should put forth the same amount of effort to raise funds for your honeymoon.

Your honeymoon is important because it’s the first thing you’ll do together as a married couple. So you want this happy occasion to be perfect!

How can you make it perfect? Honeyfund, the crowdfunding website dedicated to help happy couples raise funds for honeymoon bliss, is an extremely popular way to receive money needed to pay for the perfect trip. It’s the whole reason why the website was created in the first place.

Honeyfund’s Humble Beginnings

Although this website is finally starting to catch the public’s attention, most people still have never heard of this dynamic honeymoon registry. And that’s a shame because it’s changing the way that we receive wedding gifts for the better.

The founders of this website created it originally because they didn’t have enough money to go on their dream honeymoon. Instead of having a less than satisfactory experience during this momentum occasion, Sara and Josh Margulis decided to take matters into their own hands. Before long, they set up a honeymoon registry that helped soon to be married couples like themselves receive “sponsorships” in lieu of traditional gifts. And this allowed them to get the money to pay for their dream honeymoon.

For one reason or another, couples are often hesitant to ask for “sponsorships” on this honeymoon registry. Some just aren’t that familiar with crowdfunding. Others feel that they shouldn’t receive money instead of traditional wedding gifts.

Do you need money to pay for your honeymoon? Try Honeyfund today and experience the same benefits as thousands of others in your shoes.

Is Honeyfund the Best Honeymoon Registry to Meet My Crowdfunding Needs?

We can’t think of a better honeymoon registry besides Honeyfund. This site is perfect because it lets you use its platform for free. It’s unique and has many wonderful features. Our favorite is the honeymoon itinerary planner. It lets you add specific activities to your crowdfunding page. And then your guests can make donations based on the activities that they would like to pay for.

Other Crowdfunding Benefits

If you intend to raise funds for other important milestones during your marriage, we recommend using the Honeyfund sister site called Plumfund.

There are many ways to take advantage of crowdfunding. For married couples, here are a few of our favorites:

  • pay off student loans
  • raise money for a down payment on a new home
  • pay off outstanding credit card debt
  • raise money for in vitro fertilization

Are you ready to take the perfect honeymoon vacation? Honeyfund will help make your dreams a reality.

Details Made Simple x Paperless Post – Why We Love Paperless Post!

Here at Details Made Simple you know we like to streamline the process of just about everything! Whether it is the best way to organize the guest list for escort cards, a more efficient plan for the transportation logistics for an upcoming wedding or the easiest way to get a large bridal party to the next location of the day. We are always trying to figure out the best and most efficient way to do all things wedding.

Paperless_Post_logoThis is why we love Paperless Post so much, they take the “dreadful” out of the invitation process and make it easy and fun again. You can do Save the Dates, Formal Wedding Invitations, announcements all the way down to Thank You cards, all online! Now, you may be thinking “Does sending out an Evite make our wedding day seem any less formal? I don’t think so, in fact I think it shows that you are thinking economically and rather save on paper, stamps and time.
