How To: Wedding Registry

When thinking about potential gifts that you would like to receive for your wedding, think practicality, but don't forget to have some fun with it! Registering for gifts is important because it gives your guests an idea of what you and your fiancé still need in order to have a full and properly functioning home. It also allows for you to avoid receiving doubles of items you may want. By making a registry, your guests will not only be able to see what you would like, but they can also see if something has already been purchased for you by someone else.

When creating your wedding registry, make sure you complete it at least seven to nine months before the wedding. By doing this, you can use the same registry for both you wedding shower as well as for the wedding itself. It will also allow for people to have time as much time as possible to go out and find you the perfect gift.

Feel free to update your registry often. If you forget to add an item or you come across something you would like but did not think of initially, you can always continue to add to the list!

Another way to stay efficient is to do your registry together. By doing this, you will be able to figure out what you are missing and find something that you will both enjoy.

Something else to keep in mind is the prices of the items that you choose to put on your registry. Make sure that you find things that fall under a wide price range. This gives your guests options and will allow them to find something that they can buy that fits their specific spending budget. Remember to stay considerate!

Finally, register at multiple places. If you limit yourself to one place, it limits the options for your guests. It will also add convenience your guests, if one store is not close to them, another might be.

Making your registry should be fun, by starting early and giving options you can eliminate your stress! Happy planning!
