Honeymoon registries have evolved since Wanderable was founded in 2012.

In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, honeymoon registries were mainly offered through a local travel agent that allowed friends and family to call or stop in to give a gift toward the couple’s honeymoon. That worked well for the travel agent since they received a favorable margin on selling the trip.

Wanderable helped changed this model by allowing couples to plan their travel with whomever they wished (or just do it themselves) and soon paved the way for a number of new companies offering similar services.
