The worst of the gougables hawked by the wedding industry. Seriously, there's nothing so godawful out there that they won't slap a couple of doves on it and shove it up on The Knot.
Setup fee: $150

That's $855 that could have been spent on the honeymoon itself. Ouch.
Haaaaate honeymoon registries!I can't imagine trying to convince the guests to pay for the honeymoon. Bleah.Also, most honeymoon registries offer 'items' like massages, dinners at particular restaurants, experiences like swimming with dolphins...but the money actually comes to the travel agent/couple in a lump sum and they can put your gift of swimming with dolphins into upgrading the room or flying first class instead. There's no guarantee that the gift you've chosen from the registry is the one the happy couple will spend the cash on.
Oh, and I forgot to identify myself. (waves) Twistie here.
I've often wondered about selling pre-paid divorce services as another option on the bridal registry. An especially good gift for the guest who has an issue with the intended. Stefani Quane, Lawlady Inc.Prenups and Divorce for People Who Dare to Love
