Gorgeous Gifts Galore!

Our honeymoon cruise was without a doubt one of the absolute best weeks of my life! Between the beautiful islands, amazing excursions, and (of course) sharing it all with my groom, I was on cloud nine the entire time. But in the end, it was also the generosity and thoughtfulness of our friends and relatives that helped make the trip so special.

You see, just when I thought our Honeyfund registry would be a total bust, gift certificates started arriving a couple weeks before the wedding. Not only am I touched by the incredible gestures from everyone who traveled to the celebration, but I’m especially blown away by the kindheartedness of those who couldn’t make it, but still put the thought into sending caring wishes our way.

And it wasn’t just Honeyfund that left us pleasantly surprised. We got lots of things off our traditional registries that were “wishful” items we thought might be too extravagant for anyone to buy.

But we got one of these…


And this little beauty…


And even enough in gift cards to check out these…


Have you been just as blown away by the love and generosity of your guests?

  1. Great gifts. My wedding is still over 1 1/2 months away and we received our first gifts from someone who won't be making the wedding and the gift was a set of beautiful crystal candlesticks from Tiffany.

  3. You got some great gifts!

    We got some really nice stuff too. I was very excited. Though I must admit I'm surprised that we didn't receive a gift from a few of Kristian's relatives. I know some people send gifts later on but after talking to his mom she said that those relatives are known for that kind of thing. That really surprises me especially since they all have money so it's not a financial issue.

  5. I can't wait to register for one of those mixers!!! I'm a Food Network addict and can't wait to bake like the pros. It's the number one things on my wish list.
