Why should we use The Venetian / The Palazzo Honeymoon Registry?
The Venetian and The Palazzo Honeymoon Registry allows you to receive fabulous experiential gifts at our resorts for your honeymoon or your destination wedding. Your friends and family will choose something special from your honeymoon registry that they would like to give you as a wedding gift. All gifts received up until 5 days prior to your departure will be available to you as a resort credit when you arrive. You can then enjoy your wedding gifts during your stay at The Venetian or The Palazzo! Unlike getting envelopes with checks in them at the wedding and leaving the next day for your honeymoon trip, our honeymoon gift registry allows you to know ahead of time what you will have available for extras and upgrades on your honeymoon or destination wedding. In addition, your friends and family will love knowing that they have purchased for you a wedding gift that will create a memory that will last a lifetime! You can register to get the word out early, and know exactly how much and what you will be able to enjoy when you arrive at The Venetian or The Palazzo for your destination wedding or honeymoon.Back To Top

We recommend using varied denominations to accommodate all guests and checking with your travel professional or supplier for exact pricing. All prices vary by location, availability, and are subject to change without notice.
You can break down the amounts any way you choose.
For example, if an item is going to cost you $200.00, you may ask for '2 gifts of $100.00' or '4 gifts of $50.00'. If you've chosen to have gifts go to your hotel, those prices will be listed in the exact amount for you.Back To Top
