Kristine and Geoff

Hello friends and family! Welcome to our honeymoon registry. We've heard from some of you wondering when this site was finally going to come along, and we're sorry for the delay. We look forward to seeing many of you down here in Austin for the big event, and your presence -- or in lieu of that, your well wishes -- is gift enough, but we do realize that many of you may wish to give us a wedding gift to commemorate this once-in-a-lifetime occasion. Since we already have most of the traditional wedding gift items, we have decided to offer our guests a gift alternative - our honeymoon registry. This will allow you to help us create an epic trip that we will never forget. Our honeymoon, which will be a trip to San Francisco and Portland (with a road trip from the former to the latter in the middle), will take place about four months after the wedding. This is strategic. At the end of July/beginning of August, the temperature in Austin will be ~105F. In Northern California and Oregon, we're thinking, it'll be considerably cooler and a nice break from the sweat. This website helps us organize our dream honeymoon trip into individual pieces (i.e. dinners, museums, beer samplers, even a baseball game). It also gives the people who want to contribute to that trip the option of paying online by credit card or to pay by cash or check either by mail or at the wedding. If you choose to pay by mail or at the wedding, please still click through the options on the website. It will give you an option to print out a sheet with the items you chose from the registry to send along with your payment (we'll still be notified if you don't print it out, so don't worry), and it will also show other people who look at the site that the gifts you selected are no longer available. We've broken the individual items into smaller pieces. Sometimes it's divided by two, indicating the cost for each of us for a particular item (or individual nights in a hotel, days of a car rental, etc.), and sometimes it's broken down a little more arbitrarily, just to make it into smaller chunks. This way, if you want to buy us dinner, you can just choose all the pieces of an individual dinner, or if you want to scatter the love around with a little piece of a few different things, that's OK too.

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.

Authentic travel experiences to share with your loved ones
