Hello my brides-to-be! I know you all are extremely excited for your big day coming up, but don’t forget to plan for married life… Once the planning, schedule’s full of wedding appointments, and anticipation cease, there are a few things that will come in handy when regular day-to-day life begins to creep back into existence. But no need to worry, that’s why you have guests come to your wedding and give you presents! Just kidding; but if we’re being real, your guests are there to celebrate with you and they’re probably going to bring gifts to show their love and desire to help you. Might as well guide them in the correct direction, am I right?
Well, that’s what a wedding registry is for! This is a place where all your needs and wants for your future home will be organized. The registry is an orderly place where guests can visit and quickly know what things you are looking for and/or will be the most helpful to give you. Okay, so you are starting to get the picture of “why” you need to create a registry, but now begs the question of “how?” Where do you even begin?! I’m glad you asked.
Creating a wedding registry is simple; all you have to do is think through every room of your (current or soon-to-be) house and ask yourself what is still needed. Do you need pots and pans for the kitchen? Okay, great, add it to the list! How about some cute wall decorations or maybe even a TV? Shy of outdoor patio furniture? Throw it on! My biggest tip for creating a registry is to not be shy about what you add. You never know how generous Uncle Bob and Aunt Mary might be, but they want to know what you need. However, along with that, make sure you have a great variety. Don’t just add the most expensive items you can, be sure to put some smaller things on there as well. Leave options for your guests to choose what best suits them.
Let’s break this down. Here are 4 simple steps to creating your perfect wedding registry.
There you have it! Now you’re all ready for not only your big day but the life that comes after it. What are some tips that you have learned that best help in creating a wedding registry? We’d love to hear from you in the comments below!
