As you probably already know, wedding planning can be pretty stressful. One of my favorite parts of the wedding planning process thus far has been creating our wedding registry. We’re registered at both Bed, Bath, and Beyond and Target because we wanted to make sure that everyone had access to the places that we were registering for wedding gifts at. I looked at registering at a few other places, but I figured that two would be plenty enough. Today I am going to be sharing some tips on creating your wedding registry. Make sure to check out other wedding planning posts.
Creating Your Wedding Registry
- Register Early // It’s so important to register for your wedding at an early date so that people who want to purchase their gifts in advance are able to do so. We registered at Bed, Bath, and Beyond as soon as we figured out our wedding date so that if people were to ask where we were registered, we had the answer.
- Register for gifts at all price points // Chances are not everyone can afford all of the high end gifts on your registry so make sure to pick items at all different price points so your guests have options and aren’t left feeling uncomfortable and forced to shell out more cash than they are able to.
- Include your significant other // Ask your significant other for input regarding the registry because he’s going to be using all of the items as well. Picking out the most girly items possible won’t do anyone any justice. We registered together online one night but going directly to the store can be even more fun.
- Choose practical, classic items // Try to refrain from adding too many items to your list that you probably won’t use very often like a panini press or a waffle maker. You don’t want those items to be taking up valuable real estate in your home if you are rarely going to use them.
- Make sure to write a thank you note // This part will come in further down the line but it’s always good to keep in mind. Sending a thank you note to all the attendees who came bearing gifts within a month of your wedding ending is the proper thing to do.
Hope these tips make creating your wedding registry just a little easier.
