Top Wedding Registry Tips
Newly engaged couples look forward to creating a wedding registry. The act of compiling a list of household wishlist items in the hopes that their loved ones will visit their registry in order to purchase engagement, shower and wedding gifts is quite an exciting time!
As fun as it is to add items to your registry, it’s best to organize and plan your list keeping the following tips in mind in order to successfully stock your home with items you actually need and will use for many years to come.
1. Select useful every day items.
Useful every day items can be classified as flatware, stemware, pots & pans, dish sets, towels, bedding and kitchen gadgets.
If you have a large family or plan to have guests over often, remember to select a service of 10 or even 12 when registering for your table settings of flatware, stemware and dishes.
2. Various price points.
It’s best when creating your wedding registry to add items of various price points in order to provide all of your loved ones with a variety of gift options. Some people will want to spend more money than others and offering a selection of pricing will help to meet everyone’s needs ensuring you lots of gifts!
3. Wishlist items you wouldn’t buy for yourself.
Add some items to your registry that perhaps you always wanted but wouldn’t necessarily buy for yourself such as a Kitchenaid Mixer, a fondue set, waffle iron etc. Be careful not to over-include wish list items in place of the things you really need to avoid receiving so many gifts that are not useful to your new life together.
4. Keep track of the gifts you have received.
