Couple's Frequently Asked Questions
What is a honeymoon gift registry?
This honeymoon gift registry is similar to a store gift registries, whereby you register for items you wish to receive as wedding gifts. This registry allows you to register components of your honeymoon or destination wedding online. Your wedding guests will then give you portions of your vacation as a wedding gift! Instead of asking for a crock pot, you could receive an upgrade on your honeymoon suite, a couple's massage or a romantic dinner as wedding gifts.Back To Top

Why should we use the One&Only Honeymoon & Wedding Gift Registry?
Using the honeymoon gift registry allows you to pre-plan what you want to do on your honeymoon or at your destination wedding at One&Only Resorts. Using a honeymoon registry is so much more personal than asking your guests outright for cash! Guests will choose something special that they would like to give you as a wedding gift. Unlike getting envelopes with checks in them at the wedding and leaving the next day for your honeymoon trip, a honeymoon gift registry allows you to know ahead of time what you will have available for extras and upgrades on your honeymoon or destination wedding. You can register to get the word out early, and have gift money to come in to help with the initial costs of the honeymoon trip as many of our wedding couples do.Back To Top
When will we receive gift funds from this honeymoon registry?
"Resort Credit" items will be transferred to your room account on property and can be used for any items that may be billed to your room while at the resort. Your booking confirmation number is required before any transfers are made and items are not pre-arranged/scheduled. All resort credits must be used on property during your stay, are non-refundable and non-transferable. Gifts that are processed as "Resort Credit" can be purchased up to 7 days prior to your honeymoon date. Within 7 days of your arrival date purchased gifts will be handled as payment going directly to you.
Because certain properties transact in their local currency, when your gift monies are transferred to your property the funds will be converted to the local currency and applied as a credit to your room. The currency conversion rate will be based on the given rate the day of the fund transfer.Back To Top

How will we know how much to ask for?
As you select items for your honeymoon registry, in the "Notes to Couple" we give you a suggested gift amount for each tour or activity. These prices vary and can be listed per person, per couple or per item. All prices vary by location, availability and are subject to change without notice. Be sure to make note of these highlighted Notes to Couple as you choose your gifts.
We recommend using varied denominations to accommodate all your guest's budgets. You can break down the amounts into smaller amounts and ask for more of each item. For example, if an item is going to cost you $200.00, you may ask for 2 gifts of $100.00, 4 gifts of $50.00, or 8 gifts of $25.00.
Some of the items are provided by specific vendors and may need to be prearranged by you or will be sent directly to you or your hotel. With these items you will find the amount preset to cover the full cost.Back To Top
