How Crowdfunding Can Help Support Your Dream Honeymoon

The millennial way is all about experiences–and that includes weddings! And as it turns out, more and more millennial’s are getting married later in life when they already have every kitchen gadget, tableware set and piece of bedding they need. Honeymoon registries have become a popular alternative to traditional registries (because who needs a blender when you can go to Hawaii?). In addition, many couples are also choosing to link their honeymoon destination with a charitable experience. Technology and social media have made it possible to politely ask your guests for cash that will go toward your honeymoon, especially if you are traveling for a cause. Below is an outline of the best ways to crowdsource the funds for your post-wedding adventures.

First, choose where you are going. There really is no better way to start your married life than to share a fulfilling voluntourism experience while on your honeymoon. You can bond together as a couple while also interacting with the local community in a meaningful way. There’s always going to be time to relax but squeezing in some volunteer hours will enhance your trip for the better (and make your guests more comfortable donating to your cause!). Plus, this isn’t limited to international travel. There are plenty of local places in the U.S. that are vacation and volunteer friendly. Honeymoon Volunteers is a great place to get started.

Of course you’re invested.
