Jessie and Mike

The very best present we can receive is your presence at our wedding and your love and support as we embark on this adventure together. We recognize that especially for those of you coming from far away, simply attending our wedding will already entail spending money on travel and hotel accommodations. Many of you are contributing your time and energy to this event, and for the gift of your participation we thank you. We started a tradition a few years back of giving experience gifts rather than material ones and this option allows us to continue doing that. We are travelers, always planning for our next destination... and what better way to celebrate our marriage than with a fantastic adventure in a new location! This trip will likely occur in November so we can experience spring in New Zealand and take advantage of the better weather to spend two weeks basically outdoors camping and hiking and wandering the country.

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.
