April, 2012 - Engaged Couples Say "I Do" to Destination Weddings With 1-800-Registry's Expert Planning and Support

1-800-Registry Destination Travel Services Cater to the Nearly Twenty-five Percent of Brides Planning the Best Destination Weddings

Paradise, NV - April 16, 2012 - 1-800-Registry, a leader in wedding planning, honeymoon travel and non-traditional registry services, today introduced specialized destination wedding services for couples planning their fairytale weddings in far-flung locations. Catering to the nearly 25 percent of engaged couples estimated to be arranging a destination wedding, 1-800-Registry's Destination Specialists provide free, personalized and dedicated assistance to help couples plan once-in-a-lifetime weddings and honeymoons in exotic island destinations-like the Caribbean, Fiji, Hawaii, or the South Pacific-and homegrown hot spots-like Las Vegas, California and Florida.

According to new research, destination weddings are the fastest growing segment of America's almost $60 billion wedding industry, accounting for nearly a quarter of weddings in 2011. However, brides are frequently overwhelmed by selecting the perfect location, arranging group travel and hotel accommodations, managing their destination wedding checklist or wedding planning timeline, and choosing trusted vendors from thousands of miles away. With more than 175 years of travel and wedding planning experience, the Destination Specialists at 1-800-Registry are uniquely qualified to handle all aspects of the wedding planning process, making a couple's dream destination wedding and honeymoon a well-planned reality.

From Planning a Faraway Wedding to Receiving a Romantic Honeymoon
1-800-Registry also offers travel planning services for the guests attending a destination wedding, and those family and friends can also contribute to the couple's dream honeymoon with 1-800-Registry's free Honeymoon Registry. A popular gift option, this non-traditional registry allows couples to afford their dream honeymoon. 1-800-Registry will even contribute $200 to get the honeymoon fund started.

Complimentary Destination Expertise is Priceless
1-800-Registry's Destination Specialists are experts at planning the best destination weddings and honeymoons because they personally visit desired locations and resorts, and understand the marriage laws specific to each location in order to provide first-hand knowledge and recommendations that make a couple's wedding ceremony and honeymoon romantic, special and memorable.
  • Caribbean - The breathtaking turquoise waters of the Caribbean makes it a stunning location for destination weddings and honeymoons. Comprised of more than 7,000 islands amid over 100,000 square miles of ocean, the Caribbean plays host to beautiful weddings in Anguilla, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Barbados, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and St. Kitts, to name a few. 1-800-Registry's Destination Specialists can take the guesswork out of Caribbean travel, from the best island hideaways down to the different currencies used in each country visited.
  • Fiji - In the heart of the South Pacific, nestled deep in the South Seas is the island of Fiji. From the blue lagoons to the lush rain forests, Fiji weddings enjoy some of the most romantic, tropical backdrops. Compliant with Fijian law, the Destination Specialists at 1-800-Registry can assist couples in obtaining a marriage license from the nearest marriage registry to sign prior to their ceremony.
  • Hawaiian Islands - The Islands of Hawai'i are paradise found for many destination wedding seekers. With Kaua'i, O'ahu, Maui and the Hawai'i Island in such close proximity to each other, travelers and islanders alike often take day trips from one island to another. For guests attending island weddings, 1-800-Registry's team of Destination Specialists can arrange travel and coordinate day excursions-like snorkeling and sightseeing-or evening activities-like luaus and sunset cruises, so that the entire experience is planned to perfection.
  • South Pacific - Straight south from Hawaii and only eight hours from Los Angeles, French Polynesia is comprised of five great archipelagos, with crystal clear waters that surround the beaches of Tahiti, Bora Bora and Moorea. The Destination Specialists at 1-800-Registry can guide couples toward their dream destination wedding location, from the best all-inclusive wedding packages for a Bora Bora wedding to the most secluded beach locations for a Tahitian wedding.
  • Las Vegas - Home to 1-800-Registry, the marriage capital of the world boasted nearly 90,000 weddings performed in Las Vegas and Clark County in 2011. 1-800-Registry's Destination Specialists will help couples identify and contact a variety of Bride-Certified™ Wedding Vendors who are pre-screened, reliable and guaranteed*.
  • California - The Golden State is 1,000 miles of coastline, Pacific waters and sunshine. From the Napa and Sonoma vineyards neighboring San Francisco in the north to the celebrity-studded restaurants and nightclubs of Los Angeles and Malibu in the south, California's cities are as varied and cultural as any country outside of the United States. With so many options to choose from, the Destination Specialists at 1-800-Registry will make it easy for a couple to narrow down their search by recommending locations that match their vision and budget.
  • Florida - Couples interested in planning seaside Florida weddings can rely on 1-800-Registry's Destination Specialists to recommend picture-perfect locations, from Miami Beach weddings to Panama City beach weddings, and everything in between. Surrounded by the warmth of the Gulf of Mexico to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, white sand beaches are never far from any Florida location, making it popular for destination weddings and honeymoons.

1-800-Registry helps couples plan their dream weddings and honeymoons with confidence because every one of its trusted wedding vendors is Bride-Certified.

June, 2011 - 1-800-Registry eagerly looks to unveil an untapped market to PCBC attendees: newlyweds

Responding to what hundreds of couples have said they want, the world's first comprehensive online service for couples hopes to build partnerships with homebuilders.

June, 2011 (Las Vegas, NV) - 1-800-Registry, the leading online wedding advisory organization, announced today that it will participate in the Pacific Coast Builder Conference (PCBC), an annual trade show and conference for community builders and their project teams. 1-800-Registry is a full-service, online company that assists engaged couples with wedding planning, honeymoon planning, and finding, financing and purchasing a couple's dream home. Attending PCBC is an opportunity for 1-800-Registry to showcase their detailed knowledge of the wedding market and the dynamic force newlyweds are in the housing market. In fact, a full 25% of all homebuyers are newlyweds. With traditional registries falling by the wayside, the emerging trend is toward creating registries that will serve couples well into their future. By attending this conference, 1-800-Registry hopes to introduce their unique services to homebuilders and expand their existing homebuilder partner base. They will be located at PSCBC Booth #5126.

"We are thrilled to participate in this year's Pacific Coast Builder Conference," said Donne Kerestic, CEO of 1-800-Registry. "This is an excellent occasion for our company to provide other participants with an opportunity to tap into a market they may have overlooked in the past. It is also a way for us to explore partnerships, build our brand, and improve our customer relationships."

In 2011 alone, it is projected that couples will spend $60 billion on their weddings, receive $12-18 billion in wedding gifts, and spend $80 billion on homes. As more and more couples begin to spend money on their first homes, 1-800-Registry provides incentives for homebuilders to partner with the organization in order to help this significant demographic purchase the home of their dreams.

Most newlyweds prefer contributions toward a new home down payment rather than traditional wedding gifts, according to a recent study conducted by 1-800-Registry. By offering couples the ability to create a Home Registry account where friends and family can contribute funds toward the couple's new home, 1-800-Registry uniquely appeals to the higher consumer demand. In addition to the Home Registry account, couples that hire a preferred wedding vendor can earn up to 10% of their purchases back through the Reward Dollars program—money that can only be used with participating homebuilders. Then, 1-800-Registry introduces newlywed clients to the builder's company and homes; showcases their properties, communities, and plans on their website; promotes existing inventory and special buying incentives; and directly connects clients to the builder. Following on the heels of a relationship a year or more in the making, these recommendations are coming from someone the couples now view as a trusted source.

1-800-Registry makes it simple for couples to plan their weddings and save for their honeymoons and home down payments with an easy-to-navigate website. For wedding registry services, the site allows couples to access a list of vendors nationwide. A local vendor model is also available in select markets including Southern California, Houston and Dallas, Texas. This local vendor model will be expanding to additional cities as well, throughout the year. This service allows brides and grooms to connect with trusted and reliable companies, whether regionalized (for the cities listed above) or nation-wide (for all other areas in the U.S.). Other features available on the site include:

  • Identify the top florists, photographers, venues, caterers, and other event vendors within a specified price range, schedule and location;
  • Coordinate and share wedding and registry details with friends and family. Brides can post photos, blogs, and updates as well as collect RSVPs on 1-800-Registry's social networking platform;
  • Opt into utilizing the Personalized One-On-One Concierge service, where brides can obtain the help they need in planning every aspect of their wedding and beyond the big day;
  • Plan every aspect of the perfect honeymoon - from destinations to activities to lodging;
  • Discover, finance, and purchase the couple's dream home.

"Through our user-friendly website and personalized, one-to-one planning services that cost little to nothing, couples can have fun planning their futures together and share as much or as little as they want with friends and family," Kerestic says. Through 1-800-Registry's unique incentive program, Reward Dollars, brides can earn up to 10% of their money spent through the participating wedding vendors. With the average couple spending over $25,000 on their wedding, they can earn up to $2,500 towards their honeymoon or new home. This motivates couples to utilize 1-800-Registry's Bride-Certified Wedding Specialists for all matrimonial needs, ensuring the wedding of their dreams will come true.
