The Wedding Registry
Many people feel that wedding registries are cold and impersonal, but it does help prevent the old wedding cliche of getting three toasters. Since many couples are marrying later or at least acquire more stuff before tying the knot, the registry rules are a-changing.
1. Do Inventory
Before putting up your registry, do a quick. Do you need a new toaster? Does your new place has room for a new flatware set? And if you're doing must of the legwork, you should consult your partner at some point. Is he cool with pink curtains? Does he want Henckels instead of Wustof knives?
2. Don't Put Everything Up Now
You always want to create a range of gifts for guest to choose from across a large price range. Instead, check every few weeks and upload a few more items to keep a nice distribution.
3. Pick a Range of Stores
While some people like to buy things online, others like to go to a store and pick out the perfect gift. Creating registries at a few places, including a popular chain, makes it convenient or more convenient for your wedding guests.
Don't need stuff? Or if it's not a big priority right now, there are many registry alternatives. Ask your guests to give towards your honeymoon. Studies have shown that people who purchase experiences are happier than people who just buy things. You can also ask them for donations towards your first house down payment.
