    Great review, thanks for the link. Their wedding website themes are nice but even better is the very tasteful way couples can now receive cash without actually having to ask for it.

    My sister has a loft full of ugly dishes and tablecloths she never wanted but got for her wedding. I means, tablecloths??! Really?!

    I’m planning on dividing up my registry between my honeymoon and a few essentials like a shiny 4-slice toaster.

    Thank you for mentioning the latest honeymoon registry market entrant and describing the attributes behind this increasingly mainstream registry option for engaged couples.

    It is great to see how popular the honeymoon registry is becoming. When NAME REDACTED first started accepting Members over four years ago, we soon realized there was a huge population of engaged couples not satisfied with the diversity of the wedding registry market.

    I encourage you to contact us with any questions about our service. Most importantly, enjoy your honeymoon!

    Best Regards,

    Brandon Warner

    Thanks for the (strangely direct and commercial) reply Brandon. Unfortunately you’re a US company and I’m a UK bride. Also the Bridalwave review for ‘Just the Thing’ shows that their processing fee is less than yours. Sorry, I’ll need to stick with this the Bridalwave recommendation for this one.

  • Jamie

    Thanks for the tip Bridalwave, the Missus and I signed up with Just the Thing a week ago and received our first gifts today. She’s thrilled and I’m hooked on adding more info. We’ve got videos and interactive maps on our wedding site. Great Recommendation. Thanks.

    Just The Thing’s terms and conditions state that they charge VAT on top of the 7.25% service fee – so that’s 8.5% in total. And they state that credit card payments will incur a processing fee (though they don’t state how much). It’s all a bit hidden, though.
