Make Your Registry Fun
It should be fun, but creating a registry is often quite stressful. There are so many decisions to make in such a short amount of time. Engaged couples have to consider what they might need for the rest of their life while wandering through the aisles at their favorite department stores. That’s a lot to consider.
Here are a few tips to make the process fun for you, your fiancé, and your guests:
- Register for items you can use everyday. These should include the plates, flatware, and drinking cups that you absolutely love. You should also consider registering for luxurious sheets in classic white. Many couples will also choose a great sounding Bluetooth speaker, carry-on suitcases, and a fabulous blender or juicer.
- Don’t worry about “over-registering.” It is helpful for your guests to have plenty of choices. Most guests will purchase something off of the registry, but they want it to be something that symbolizes your relationship with them. Don’t hesitate to include gift cards to book stores or for travel experiences.
- Your registry should represent both of your tastes. Marriages are about compromise, so you can both have favorite items. Maybe some will go in the man cave and some will go in the girl garden. Since your guests might not know both of you equally, some will be more comfortable buying something that fits your personality and some will want to buy something that fits your fiancé’s personality.
- Pick small, medium, and large items. There are people who will want to buy small kitchen tools and there are people who will want to buy that expensive comforter you have your eye on. Some might want to purchase every single place setting. You just never know.
- Make it fun for your guests. For example, if your friends and family know that you love to watch college football games together, start a fund that will help you purchase season tickets. Your friends and family will want to be a part of helping you build a family tradition. You do not have to just include items for you home in your registry.
- Don’t forget to include a registry card in the invitation. At Boxed Wedding Invitations, we can help you design a special card or include a subtle note at the end of the invitation
