One thing we haven’t discussed yet in the “Emily Plans a Wedding” series is our honeymoon! That’s kind of surprising, actually, because as travel bugs, John and I love to discuss our next trip, and our honeymoon is kind of an exciting one :)

We’re actually going to be taking a minimoon directly following our wedding – we’ll drive back down South from Connecticut, stopping in Washington, DC, Charlottesville, VA, and Lynchburg, VA along the way. For our big adventure, we’re thinking a longer stay in France in June of next year. Oh la la!

Of course, just because we’ve already mapped out our trips doesn’t mean we’ve stopped daydreaming, and today’s sponsor, Wanderable, is the perfect accomplice. I love that Wanderable, a honeymoon registry, is also an online community where you can discover new places and experiences, and be inspired by the trips other members are planning (or dreaming about!).

If you have all the household goods you could ever want, registering for experiences instead of just accumulating more stuff is a fantastic option. A honeymoon registry works just like a traditional registry, except guests can gift you a horseback ride in the Texas backcountry, a fly fishing lesson in Montana, or breakfast in bed at a boutique hotel in Paris… instead of more plates. Yes, please!

If you’re ready to sign up, you can go with the free registry option (ad-free, too!), or you can upgrade and choose one of 28 designer themes with customizable colors. Whichever you choose, rest assured that the design will be simple and beautiful.

Tell me: If you were registering for a honeymoon on Wanderable, what would you register for? I’m dying to stay at Blackberry Farm or Paws Up, so one of those would be at the top of my list :)

    I love the idea of a honeymoon registry! I made one recently (after I felt exhausted by my wedding registry and me and the groom finally picked a honeymoon spot!) and I’m really excited. It gave me insight into what we’re getting ourselves into down there (Key West!), ideas about the local area, and my mom assured me the older guests would probably love to buy us “experiences” rather than just items. Can you say couples massage or yoga on the beach??

      Love it, Erin! I actually just bought a gift for my good friends off of their honeymoon registry, and I loved the experience! It was so fun to picture them enjoying their present :)

    Thanks for sharing this! My fiance and I are definitely doing a honeymoon registry (we’ve been living together for a year so we don’t need to register for much) but I wasn’t sure who to use! We love the idea that our friends can feel like they’re a part of our trip, and that we can send photos of those activities with our thank yous!

    YAY Charlottesville! That’s where I live! Here are a few suggestions for enjoying Cville to the max :-) Awesome restaurants: Zocalo, Commonwealth Restaurant and Skybar, Maya, The Local, MAS Tapas, and Duner’s. This is a foodie town and you will not be disappointed at any of those. Things to do: Visit Monticello and nearby vineyards; Jefferson, Blenheim, Castle Hill Cider, and Keswick. Check out a show at the Paramount Theater or Jefferson Theater on the Downtown mall. Go hiking to Humpback Rock on the Blue Ridge Parkway and visit nearby vineyards; King Family, Pollak, and Veritas (there are also a few breweries out that way). Stop by Greenwood Gourmet Grocery on your way to Humpback and pick up a fantastic sandwich or bread and cheese for a picnic. On your way to Lynchburg stop by Pippin Hill Vineyards and enjoy their breathtaking views. Sorry for writing a book… what can I say, I LOVE this town!
