What’s Honeyfund? Honeyfund is a free honeymoon registry and the number one cash wedding gift registry online. Co-founders Sara and Josh Margulis created Honeyfund after struggling to find a free honeymoon registry. It began as a web page where guests could select a gift, print a certificate, and bring it to the wedding with cash or a check. The web page was an immediate success.
