This week on The Wedding Reporter Podcast, I interviewed Sara Margulis of Honeyfund!

In the vast landscape of the wedding industry, one platform stands out for its unique mission to turn dreams into reality – Honeyfund. Founded in 2006 by Sara Margulis and her (former) husband Josh, Honeyfund emerged from a personal need and has since blossomed into a transformative force in the world of weddings and beyond.

Who is Sara Margulis?

Sara Margulis, the co-founder and CEO of Honeyfund, brings a blend of digital marketing expertise and a passion for travel to the table. With a background in marketing and a love for creativity and numbers, Sara embarked on a journey that would redefine how couples approach their wedding registries.

What is Honeyfund?

The concept of Honeyfund is simple yet revolutionary – it’s a gift registry that allows couples to receive contributions towards their honeymoon experiences. Inspired by their own struggles to afford the dream honeymoon they envisioned, Sara and Josh saw an opportunity to fill a gap in the market. Traditional wedding registries often overflow with household items, leaving little room for experiences that truly matter.

Honeymoon Registry on Shark Tank

From its humble beginnings to its groundbreaking appearance on Shark Tank in 2014, Honeyfund has continued to evolve. The platform’s success on Shark Tank, securing an investment from Kevin O’Leary, propelled it into the spotlight, garnering national and international attention. Sara’s strategic vision and Kevin’s support have been instrumental in Honeyfund’s growth and expansion.

No Fees

What sets Honeyfund apart is its commitment to empowering couples to create their weddings on their own terms, without the pressure of overspending. Unlike traditional registries that thrive on upselling, Honeyfund operates on a fee-free model, ensuring that couples receive the full benefit of their contributions. Additionally, the platform offers flexibility, allowing couples to raise funds for various milestones beyond weddings, such as baby moons, anniversaries, or even unexpected emergencies.

More than Honeymoons

But Honeyfund is more than just a fundraising platform; it’s a catalyst for strengthening relationships and building lifelong memories. Research has shown that couples who invest in experiences like honeymoons are more likely to have successful marriages. Honeyfund’s mission to make the honeymoon happen for all couples underscores its commitment to supporting love-filled journeys from “I do” and beyond.

Honeyfund Partnerships

As the wedding industry continues to evolve, Honeyfund remains at the forefront of innovation. Through strategic partnerships with brands like Target and Hilton Hotels, the platform has expanded its reach and solidified its position as a trusted ally for couples worldwide.

What’s Next for Honeyfund?

Looking ahead, Honeyfund is poised to embark on new horizons, with plans to introduce additional functionalities and enhance user experiences. With Sara’s visionary leadership and the unwavering support of its community, Honeyfund is well-equipped to continue transforming dreams into reality, one honeymoon at a time.

In a world where love knows no bounds, Honeyfund stands as a beacon of hope, reminding us that every journey begins with a single step – and sometimes, a little help from friends and family along the way. So, whether you’re planning your dream wedding or embarking on a new chapter in life, remember that with Honeyfund, the possibilities are limitless.
