HoneymoonWishes.com Offers Brand New Revenue Stream
for Resorts, Hotels and Cruise Lines


With HoneymoonWishes.com's White Label Program, Hotel Properties and Cruise Lines Worldwide
Can Have Their Own Gift Registry and Increase Wedding and Honeymoon Business


San Diego, CA (May 2012) –  Travel companies, including resorts and cruise lines, are using HoneymoonWishes.com’s White Label program for their honeymoon registries to bring in new on property revenues and expose their product to the friends and family of every couple honeymooning with them. In fact, HoneyMoonWishes.com, which has partnered with such marquee honeymoon destinations as Sandals, Royal Caribbean, and One&Only Resorts, is the only true turnkey white label provider in the industry offering travel companies a complete custom honeymoon registry Web site without having to pay for a site from scratch.
 
On HoneymoonWishes.com, the bride’s and groom’s friends and family can choose from the couple’s dream list of honeymoon experiences to give as wedding gifts, including romantic dinners, golf outings, massages, sightseeing excursions, and contributions to air fare and nights at their hotel or on their cruise. Guests can also donate to charities/foundations of the couple’s choice as a wedding gift. For example, if the couple is staying at a Sandals resort, their guests can donate to the Sandals Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to community outreach efforts in the Caribbean, on the couple’s behalf. 
 
HoneymoonWishes.com does not book travel or make reservations. The site simply enables wedding couples to have bridal registry technology that provides a socially acceptable way to receive pieces of their honeymoon as their wedding gifts.
 
For travel companies using HoneymoonWishes.com’s white label program the benefits are numerous, including:
 
  • Providing new and guaranteed revenue through on-property spend (most resorts average $2K per couple) as HoneymoonWishes.com is the only company that can send all gift registry monies direct to the resort or cruise line. 
  • Increased viral marketing to wedding guests by directing them to the couple’s honeymoon registry through the travel company’s Web site. Brides can post links to their registry on the hotel’s or cruise line’s Web site via the bride’s Facebook pages, exposing the property or cruise line to all of the bride’s Facebook friends. 
  • The opportunity to have the hotel’s or cruise line’s registry site distributed on and to five different channels, including HoneymoonWishes.com, HoneymoonWishes.co.uk, 108,000 affiliates, and direct-to-consumer white labels such as HoneyLuna.com and MyWedding.com.
  • Customized registry templates with the hotel’s or cruise line’s images, room descriptions, spa services, and more. This registry becomes a virtual marketing brochure showcasing the hotel’s and cruise line’s honeymoon offerings. 
  • A banner on HoneymoonWishes.com’s Destination Pages that opens up the hotel’s or cruise line’s own unique page on HoneymoonWishes.com’s for couples who have not decided yet where to book their honeymoon. 
Additionally, HoneyWishes.com produces all content and integrates all technology for the hotel’s or cruise line’s HoneymoonWishes.com’s registry site, handle all customer service calls regarding the registry and administer fulfillment.
 
“Using our white label program is win-win for everyone,” said Kristin Stark, President of Honeymoonwishes.com.  “The bride and groom have a longer more luxurious honeymoon. Their friends and family get to give a memory that will last. The hoteliers and cruise lines are introduced to the couple’s friends and family via social media. And the hotels and cruise lines see new revenue from wedding gifts in addition to the couple’s hotel or cruise line booking. This revenue is money that would have otherwise gone to a department store for food processors or china plates.”
 
Launched in 2003, HoneymoonWishes.com directly connects brides and grooms to resorts, cruise lines, and travel companies in destinations around the world. Many of HoneymoonWishes.com’s gift registry options are specific to the honeymoon or wedding venues that couples choose, making the site much more than just a cash collecting service. And there is no guesswork when using HoneymoonWishes.com. The items that are available have been carefully selected by HoneymoonWishes.com’s team and are tastefully showcased.
