Sarah and John

Welcome! Thanks for visiting our Honeymoon Registry. John and I have been living together for almost four years now, and have managed to accrue many nice household goods during that time. We will also be moving sometime in the next two years, so we are currently trying not to amass any more stuff that will have to move with us. In lieu of a traditional registry, we are asking for monetary gifts to help us pay for our honeymoon. To celebrate this new phase in our lives together, we're planning to hike, swim, run, climb, drive, and wine taste our way through New Zealand sometime in early 2015. If you already have a particular idea of what you'd like us to use your gift for, scroll to the bottom and see the heading "Did we Forget Something?" Otherwise, browse our ideas and suggestions for things we'd like to do and see in New Zealand.

What's a honeymoon registry?

Wanderable is a new and unique honeymoon registry that allows wedding guests to gift meaningful and memorable experiences to a newlywed couple.

Similar to a traditional registry where the couple registers for gifts, couples will create a Wanderable registry website where guests can choose a thoughtful experience to give based on their unique relationship with the couple.

Why Wanderable?

Couples who choose Wanderable want a beautiful experience to help begin their journey together.

A marriage is about the experience of life and the journey you are just beginning together. Wanderable believes that this is at the core of marriage. And the only way to help a couple celebrate this is to provide a meaningful wedding gift of one of the first experiences of this journey together.

Wanderable helps couples get started on their journey by providing a unique way for guests to give more than a thing, but a gift of a new life experience the couple can share.

We believe that experiences can be made into memorable gifts, that feel as real as receiving any other gift you can unwrap.
