Creating a wedding registry is one of the first steps to make towards planning the Big Day – some even advise brides to create their registries before the engagement party, so yes, it’s a pretty big element of the first phase of wedding planning.
What are some of the most important bridal registry tips to keep in mind, though? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
- Try to only register for items you actually need and which you will actually use. It’s easy to go overboard on this and add all sorts of extravagant items to your wedding registry – but keep in mind that those on the other end of the pole are your friends and family. You want to make it easy for them to offer a gift and feel good about it – you don’t want the entire shopping experience to be a chore for them.
- Everyone seems to add china to their wedding registry – so a lot of you might feel obliged to include such an item as well. However, unless you really want a particular set, you should absolutely consider the option of skipping the china. If you’re only going to use it a couple of times, why ask anyone to pay for it? Replace it, instead, with something you will actually need for your newlyweds’ house.
- Be realistic about everything. On the one hand, be realistic about how much guests can afford spending on a gift and provide them with a generous range of options to choose from. On the other hand, be realistic about what you actually need (now or in the near future) – don’t include items just because you dream of the elements they will go perfectly with.
- If you have everything, feel free to create a wedding registry that only includes honeymoon experiences. Or simply ask guests to donate to a good cause. There’s no need to request for anything for the home if you already have everything you want and need (which might be particularly true for those of you who have already been living together for a while).
