Wedding Registry Guide

As your wedding approaches one of the first tasks you’ll want to tackle is the wedding day registry. You’ll want to think about creating registries with several stores and experiences. It’s important to notify wedding guests of the locations of where the registries are located. I’d recommend creating a list of items that you are in need of and then walking through several stores to see where best suits you and your fiancé. You’ll find items you didn’t think of, you’d like to add to your list and what registries suit you best for your registries. Do you prefer a big box store or something more fresh and modern like travel? Or both? Again, this is something only you and your fiancé can answer and address for yourselves.

While shopping personally for our registries, we found Amazon, Pottery Barn, and William Sonoma fit best for our wedding registry needs as we found we picked a few items here and there.

Tip: An appointment is not required to create a registry at Pottery Barn and William Sonoma. I personally walked through the store, took photos on my iPhone of the items that were not already on our ‘list’ and created our list at the comfort of my home office. I found that the ‘scan’ tool was not up to technology and the first time I made my appointments at the stores. Unfortunately they were short-staffed and unfortunately, the service that they offered of a ‘personal shopper’ was not simply the case as advertised. Amazon wedding registries can be created online.

What items to include on the wedding registry?

While crafting the wedding registry, you’ll want to include appliances such as kitchen and household appliances, tableware, household linens, bath linens, home decor, and travel. You’ll want envision your future home and how you’d like to furnish this together. I’d recommend to possibly create a vision board of your future home and then plan surrounding this vision. Travel items can include honeymoon activities, luggage, accessories, assistance with travel itineraries, and more. A more modern approach to the registry is a cash fund, gift cards to your favorite stores, and donations to your favorite charity are rising in popularity amongst couples. All items that are included on the registry are gifts that are essentially to be enjoyed by the couple.

Travel Registry

The most modern approach to the registry we’ve found is the service, Honeyfund. Offering all-inclusive experiences and add-ons created for you leaving planning off the table and an opportunity for guests to gift direct to your honeymoon. For travel experiences and worldwide tours, check out Viator to book attractions, tickets, VIP experiences and more.
