A huge part of celebrating your wedding is the gift-giving. Your closest friends and your family members will have the chance to fill your home, and your life, with various items. Material gifts aren’t your only option. Check out some tips below on what to keep in mind when creating your wedding registry.
There’s no reason to wait. Creating a wedding registry should be one of the first things you do once you send out the invitations. You can keep your family and friends in the loop about the wedding planning process and update your list regularly. This also gives you time to browse.
Register For What You Want
You don’t have to register for fancy china dishes or silverware. You should be registering for what you want. There are popular registry platforms that make it easy for you to register for literally anything that you desire. It can be from camping accessories to honeymoon adventures, new appliances, and more. This also allows your guests to put in money for a group gift if there are some more expensive items on your list.
Get All the Price Points
Don’t just aim high at the $350 fine china dish. Be sure to include a bit for everyone’s budget. Target a few different price points. Do an under $50, under $100, and $200 and up. This is an ideal way for your guests to choose gifts that they can afford without them having to feel pressured or overwhelmed.
Do It Together
The gifts will be for both of you, so why not do it together? You can jointly decide on what you need and what you already have. Discuss the style of your home, alternative items, and make final decisions together.
Update the Registry Often
Your wedding registry should be updated regularly. Some do it automatically as soon as something has been purchased. Be sure to update it with additional items and ensure that it is keeping others up-to-date. This will avoid double-gifts.
