From kitchen essentials to splurge-worthy items, it’s your space to get your must-haves that will last you long after the “I do’s.” But it’s important to know your style, future needs and all of the amazing options out there for you! So get ready to get your gifting on!
KNOW YOUR STYLE
No two couples are alike, so why should a registry? Discuss with your partner what your unique style is together. Think a never-ending list of perfect products (cue the KitchenAid Mixer) that are are really meant for you and your new spouse. A lot of registries also offer your guests a personalized experience with your pictures and sweet notes to your guests so the registry screams you!
THINK OF YOUR FUTURE NEEDS
Spend time perusing hundred’s of the top brands and thinking about what you may want or need in the future. What would the “future you” want? From bedding to baking essentials there is a lot to consider when a lot of these products can last a lifetime.
DON’T SKIP SPLURGE WORTHY ITEMS
Don’t feel shy abut registering for splurge worthy items. Most registries offer group gifting so guests can contribute any amount they wish. And if the gift doesn’t make it to the full amount you’ll get to use the money however you wish for other items! Many guests appreciate a variety of options and price points. Make a registry checklist and ensure when you are done you are hitting a variety of price points.
CREATE A CASH FUND
A big trend these days is cash funds for wedding registries. Don’t skip out on the best restaurants on your honeymoon, or fun excursions you want to try, indulge with the cash you get from the registries!
